How Do We
Unlock Your Body?
We do it in 3 Phases
Prior to all sessions we will assess your body and how it sits in gravity as well as how it moves through space.
Manual Therapy is a type of bodywork that goes deeper and works more than your average massage. Manual Therapy works with the fascial system in the body.
What is fascia?
That's a very long answer, but in short it is the interconnecting outer lining net around all of the body's muscles, bones, ligaments n tendons, and organs. Fascia stores information, emotions, memory and more. When fascia is in an ideal state it's more gel like and fluid in movement. On the contrary it can become more solid like restricting movement.
Why work with fascia?
For me specifically I believe movement is medicine. When you're not able to move your body like you want to or like you're supposed to it's frustrating and sometimes painful. Most of the time it's because you're fascia is hard-like and stuck and not in fluid state allowing natural movement to happen. So best way to fix that is addressing the fascia through manual therapy.

RECOVER is our rehab and rebuild treatment. This treatment will be deeper and slower paying close attention to the body's limits and pain threshold while working towards restoring your normal movement pattern and decreasing pain using mostly manual and some stretch therapy.
After the session the therapist will teach you stretches and movements specific to your needs.
We recommend for all clients to book this style session first because it allows the therapist to work deeper with the fascial lines in the body which opens up and clears out any tension within the body.
The REVIV session is the body maintenance treatment. This can be compared to your routine oil change for your car, to keep your body moving smoothly. In this session your therapist will do The BodyScreen and after that a plan will be created to treat specific parts of your body in relation to it's ailments. REVIV treatments are less deep than RECOVER because the body does not require as much. The targeted areas of the body will be worked to bring back to it's normal function using manual and stretch therapy.
The THRIVE session is your mobility, flexibility, and stretching treatment. This can be like your pre-game stretch, your warm up, or fine tuning of the body's mobility pre-performance. Or this can be for you everyday movers (working 9-5ers) who just aren't moving the same anymore and want to increase or regain your flexibility. In this session we will go over your goals with you and do an assessment to understand how to treat your individual body. After that a plan will be created to treat you to reach your goals and maximize mobility, range of motion, and your overall performance. This treatment is strictly stretching using Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) and Acro Fascial Release (AFR) techniques to unlock the fascial lines in the body.
