What We Do
We help people who struggle with chronic pain and injuries to help them achieve pain free movement, by guiding you step by step in the comfort of your own home with our coaching and/or online, self care therapy programs.
Traditional therapy may be logical but unfortunately gives limited results for healing and well – being. We have seen these countless times with clients who come to our clinic for pain relief. They state, “I’ve tried everything from chiropractic, massage therapy, physical therapy, even injections. Traditional therapy sounds logical, but teaches you nothing about the mind, body connection. It uses brute force when applying a technique – whether it be stretching or exercise therapy. When applying forceful techniques, it can only release or address 20% of the tissue, which is superficial. Myofascial Release (Barnes Approach) gets in much deeper by using gentle sustained pressure. In addition, most types of stretching are applied by forcing the tissue and joints into movement in order to increase flexibility and mobility. The body will just go into a defensive mode and everything will tighten up possibly, causing more harm than good. What about strengthening? According to Dr. Devin Starlanyl M.D. states” You cannot strengthen a muscle that has a trigger point, because the muscle is already physiologically contracted. Attempts to strengthen a muscle with trigger points will only cause the trigger points to worsen.” In addition, strengthening without correcting postural dysfunction, will strengthen in the position of the dysfunction. We teach you how to correct the dysfunctional movement patterns while organically becoming stronger.
Using the the latest form of non – traditional, self – myofascial release (Barnes Approach to MFR) coupled with unique stretching, postural corrective exercise strategies and mindful meditation.
Please be aware, that this is not a cookie cutter technique, one size does not fit all. We treat the body as a whole; body, mind and spirit. Even traditional, holistic health care therapies only address the area of pain and do not reach the deeper layers of fascia or teach mindful, body awareness. We not only teach you “physical” therapeutic techniques for pain relief but, teach you how to tune into your body’s wisdom for healing through movement.
Again, we look at the body as a whole – meaning, just because you are having pain in one specific area does not mean that is the only area to treat/address. Since the entire myofascial complex is one single unit of connective tissue that joins and interconnects all your systems of your body – like a sweater, pull on one end, and the opposite end unfolds. Let us help you become independent and empowered, to take you beyond the level of traditional healing therapy so you can start living a pain free, active life.
