Manual Therapy

As a licensed massage therapist, I am able to treat a wide variety of injuries with various manual therapy techniques. I am certified in Active Release Technique, Fascial Distortion Model, and have 1000’s of hours of training in various soft tissue therapies, including the use of different sports taping techniques that aid in recovery. On occasion I also use a variety of tools, such as the Rapid Release Pro 2, which provide a more in depth treatment for certain injuries.

I couple these therapies with neurological muscle testing to ensure that the correct structures are being treated on all of my clients. The primary modality that I use to accomplish this is Neurokinetic Therapy, in which I am a level 3 practitioner, the highest level currently offered by the organization. Along with NKT, I have studied P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex)
and Applied Kinesiology, which both have deep roots in the neurological systems of our bodies. I believe that the true key to unlocking the answers of pain relief lie in understanding how structures work together not only on a biomechanical level, but also on a neurological level.

Manual Therapy sessions can be conducted in 25-30 minute increments or 50-60 minute increments once the initial new client session has been completed. This initial session runs between 50-60 minutes and includes a full diagnostic work-up and preliminary treatments so that when we proceed forward with a road-map in place to address the issues more directly. These
sessions are conducted in a very similar way to that of a sport chiropractor without the thrusting adjustments.
