We focus on the whole person, looking at how your whole body works rather than concentrating only on the sore parts. When we’re with you, you have our full attention. Depending on your needs, we may perform hands-on treatments to release overactive muscles, loosen up joints, retrain weak muscles and teach you how to improve your posture and move with symmetry.
