We’ve designed our practice to allow for the extra treatment time necessary to really listen and formulate a treatment plan tailored just for you.

“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.”

If in fact you have a fall, accident or other problemTHIS IS THE PLACE TO GET HELP. I found Andrea Baker, Arch & Jesse to be excellent in their work & the ultimate professionals at all times. Strain and counterstrain technique was new to me. This treatment was very effective, they also gave me physical therapy exercises to do at home which helped the process of recovery. I would highly recommend this office for Physical Therapy. The environment was bright and cheerful & clean. Everyone made working on recovery a real good experience. Thank you for your help.Rae Baker5/27/2019
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
