for the Treatment of Chronic Pain & Postural Distortion

This technique begins with a postural analysis to discover how the body balances itself within the field of gravity. Any aberration from its original design can cause compensations that may lead to chronic pain and dysfunction. When muscles are held chronically tense, they may cause inflammation of the nerves, presenting symptoms ranging from mild discomfort to quite severe neurological pain.

This approach will address muscular imbalances from past injury and trauma as well as distortions created by emotional holding patterns.  Neuromuscular massage, myotherapy, and myofascial release are integrated into a system to restore balance and improve range of motion. As the nervous system becomes free of impingements, its irritability is reduced and a reduction of pain is the result.

Some of the conditions treated:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pinched nerve
  • Postural distortion
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • Spinal alignment
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Improve range of motion
  • Joint pain
  • Plantar fascitis
