Shawn using the ASTYM Technique

The ASTYM technique is a therapy approach that addresses problems such as scarring, fibrosis, and degeneration that occur in soft tissues. These problems may develop as the result of trauma, surgery, or overuse. The technique is effective for new injuries as well as chronic conditions.

Strain and counter-strain is a gentle soft tissue manipulation technique. This revolutionary technique, which is effective in treating pain and limitations in strength and range of motion, allows a therapist to more comfortably release muscle and connective tissue spasm by utilizing body positioning.

Postural Restoration is a form of therapy that is focused on recognizing asymmetries of the body that contribute to faulty posture and pain. A therapist will look at the way the muscles in the body work together to determine the root cause of pain and difficulties with movement. Exercises and therapist provided techniques are used to restore balance to improve mobility and decrease pain which may have developed due to these asymmetries in the left and right sides, upper and lower body, etc.
