“I have been an injured athlete, trying to stretch, exercise, and tape myself out of an injury without success. That’s where manual therapy comes into play. I have been practicing fascial counterstrain for over a year now and notice more benefits with this technique than any other. Some things you can’t do yourself, and that’s when coming in for manual therapy can help you.”

The whole team here are so exceptional that words can barely describe. I have a condition that is rarely studied by doctors called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I have seeked treatment by Chiropractors, Acupuncturist, etc, etc. The Strain Counter Strain treatments are beyond amazing in relieving my pain! I don’t want to miss the opportunity to tell everyone that they have some of the most modern and technological exercise equipment ever seen! And holy moly they have bracing for everything. I got a SI joint brace...yeah I said SI joint brace...who has ever heard of one of those? Anyhoo go see them if you have any type of pain from athletic muscle strains to chronic pain from EDS, MS, ALS, etc. I swear their practice can give you some relief. Andrea has magic in her hands!!brian simmons5/28/2019
Always courteous and friendly people. The staff has worked with me on various injuries - knee, hip, foot and low back. Because of their partnership, I remain very active and am getting stronger every day. A healing atmosphere with a fun vibe.nicolette brant5/28/2019
Arch and Andrea are fantastic PT's. Their use of counter-strain and interest in wholistic health has been a life changer for me.Margaret James Dobbins9/29/2017
I love this place! I had almost given up on my body getting re-balanced and pain free (let alone being able to resume my regular exercise), before I was referred here. Andrea got me fixed up and stronger than before, and in no time at all! I was amazed. She showed me some exercises to strengthen my weak points and ways to correct my body with muscle work. I especially loved the fascial counterstrain work, I noticed the most difference right away from that. Nice office staff and great service, I highly recommend!Baylee King4/19/2017
