It's no secret, you love your active lifestyle. If you had it your way, you'd play tennis into the wee hours of the morning, run the entire I-285 loop or lift weights until gravity gave up. For truly active people, pushing their bodies to the edge of exhaustion and then pushing even further still, provides a uniquely satisfying feeling. But, what happens when that feeling turns to pain?
There are many injuries that can plague even the most athletic individual and they can potentially hinder your active lifestyle. Although some of these injuries require surgery, many of the aches and pains associated with movement and exercise are the result of fatigued muscles that can "lock down" or spasm.
That's where we can help.
During your initial session, we will work together to create a treatment plan that will identify the source of your pain, establish clear goals for treatment and detail an at-home stretching routine to maintain your progress.
A trigger point is an involuntarily contracted group of fibers that form within a muscle usually due to fatigue or injury. Trigger points can cause intense localized or referred pain manifesting as either a dull ache or a sharp stabbing pain.

I employ a unique form of massage therapy that is derived from the most effective aspects of various forms of massage. Loosely adapted from trigger-point therapy, my method is designed to be very precise and highly effective at relieving muscle tension and pain. Although this method is considered less-than-comfortable by most, I tailor the pressure to each individual to achieve the optimum balance between comfort and effectiveness while never allowing the pressure to become painful.
