“After an injury, tissues heal, but muscles learn.

They readily develop habits of guarding that outlast the injury.” Janet Travell, MD

When someone first presents with pain or loss of function, we attempt to identify what things makes it worse and what makes it better. We develop an individual physical schema and work to understand the source, stage, stability and irritability of the disorder. Then we proceed with the what we call the "trial treatment" which helps to test our hypothesis and clarify it. Every session we learn more and adapt to an ever changing reality. The initial focus is upon local structures near to the painful disorder and then we branch out to identify and influence the regional and finally global factors that perpetuate it. No protocol and no recipe. We determine the goal and continue to aim for it, wherever that leads. Our treatment includes hands on, relaxation and movement techniques. Low tech solutions with high level application. As Neuromuscular Therapists, we are Muscle (and other soft-tissue) Hands On Specialists.

"It seems more likely that different strategies will be more effective than others for some people at some times, but not necessarily for all people all the time, or even for the same person at different times." Herta Flor, PhD
