“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.”
While in the clinic, Meghan uses specific exercise and manual therapy to facilitate improved body awareness and movement for sport, as well as for everyday life.

What a positive experience. I was blown away, with how willing to help me they were. I have an old brace, and wanted to tune it up. everyone in town, could care less, but they not only took it on, but made me feel respected. My new brace this year will come from them, no matter what.Chris White6/28/2014
Before I met Andrea, I was receiving counterstrain therapy at a different location. When that therapist retired, she recommended me to Andrea, and I haven't looked back! Nobody else has been able to so effectively treat my wide range of issues (everything from hypermobility to severe neck issues caused by a car crash) with such a friendly caring attitude! You can tell she truly cares about the health and well-being of all of her patients, and I highly recommend her to anybody seeking physical therapy or even pain relief from any issue. You won't regret it!
I have been going to her for over five years now. Her style is to use strain and counterstrain techniques combined with strengthening exercises to best stabilize and strengthen your body. She listens to each of your concerns and can treat both the entire body and/or just a specific area. It is fascinating to feel the instantaneous relief as she works on me, and I always walk out the door feeling 10 times better than I walked in.Shannon H10/04/2019
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
I haven't been the same since I had PT with you. The Surgeon, called me, that I was supposed to schedule shoulder replacement surgery with, because I was going to schedule it after the snow was gone, spring 2019. I was able to tell them, I had no need for it. My shoulder was better than it has been in years, because of a fall on the ice and Physical therapy and Chiropractic following. My shoulder doesn't hurt, snap crackle or pop anymore. I can raise my arm above my head without any pain Thank you for helping this 76 year old feel "50" again.Daniel Meckel4/28/2020
The therapists really care about their patients. They take the time to research and trouble shoot the issues and adjust treatment as needed. Their techniques are not what mainstream would describe as "physical therapy" but it's an amazing and precise science that really works!! Thanks to the whole team for treating my ailments over the years.Ami Veltrie5/28/2019
