Computer Overuse


Care is designed to focus on the multiple body parts that are commonly over-worked from constant computer use.  Our focus is on reducing pain and stiffness in the neck and upper back as well as the structures around your shoulder blades, shoulders, elbows, forearms, and wrists.  

Sports Recovery


Are you a competitive athlete, a weekend athlete, or a health conscious exerciser? After a detail assessment, we develop a program to rejuvenate worn down body parts from sore tennis elbows, tight IT bands, Achilles tendinitis, or shin splints.

Prenatal & Postnatal ​Care


Prenatal care is designed to prepare the expectant mother's body for birth.  

Postnatal care helps restore the mother's back and core after the rigors of pregnancy and child birth.  

Treatments & Services 

Deep Tissue Massage


Your therapist will use slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue.  Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury.

 

Firm Swedish Massage


Using long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle,  Swedish massage can be very gentle and relaxing.

 

Manual Therapy


A variety of hands-on treatment techniques used to help relieve pain, mobilize joints, normalize posture/alignment and retrain efficient movement.  Manual therapy relieves acute and chronic muscular pain and stiffness by mobilizing soft tissue, releasing adhesions, reducing muscle spasms, lowering hypertonicity, and restoring pain-free range of motion. 

 

Joint Mobilization Therapy


Gentle assisted movements to restore joint motion that has been reduced due to aging, overuse, or prior injury.  You can liken it to “massaging” a joint and the results are - reduced pain, stiffness and inflammation; decreased joint wear and tear; and improvements in disc nutrition. The bottom line is better movement and improved function!  Stiff joints are gently soothed to improve mobility.

 

Multi-planar Stretching


Assisted stretching reduces stiff muscles and inflammation while re-establishing proper muscle length.  We incorporate multi-planar combo stretches to better mimic real life activities of daily life or specified for your athletic pursuits.

 

Chiropractic Therapy


Chiropractic care is a common method to treat back pain.  Spinal adjustment is a passive manual maneuver used to manipulate, massage, mobilize, adjust, stimulate, apply traction to the spine and related tissues.  A spring-loaded tool is sometimes used to deliver a precise measured force to the joint.
 

Targeted Exercises


Research has shown that the best benefits of bodywork are gained when specific exercises are incorporated together into the treatment program. We teach highly specific exercises to aid in your recovery and self-care maintenance.  These include core strengthening, muscle imbalance corrections, muscle-specific stretches, and joint control techniques that stabilize the joints and greatly improve outcomes.
