We have closed our current location temporarily. We will be reopening in October in a new expanded location with additional service offerings. We would like to thank everyone for your support and look forward to seeing you at our new location. Check back for additional details.
Welcome to Advanced Soft Tissue Health Solutions
We provide a variety of services dedicated to the treatment and prevention of Soft Tissue Injuries. From Massage Therapy, Cupping, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, Kinesiology Taping, to our specialized Soft Tissue Therapy, our focus is to provide a service designed to locate the cause of pain or dysfunction, correct it, and decrease the chances of it returning or adversely affecting another area of your body.
Redefining the approach to treating pain and dysfunction
Many painful conditions originate from some type of dysfunction within the body. Within the neurological system, a disturbance can occur at the receptors that transmit signals from the environment to our brain. When the brain begins to receive abnormal signals from one of these receptors, it will create a compensation in one or more receptors to try to bring balance to the system. All of the receptors involved in this pattern now have abnormal signaling, which can cause a variety of undesired outcomes, such as muscle weakness, or inability to engage muscles at the correct time, or in the proper sequence. This can lead to pain, or even structural damage if left uncorrected.
We often use an analogy of a computer system when describing this model of dysfunction and treatment. The structures of the body (bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc) make up the “Hardware”, similar to the motherboard, printer, keyboard, and mouse of a computer. We refer to the processing of signals from neuroreceptors as the “Software”, this would be similar to the Operating System of a computer. Controlling the rest of the system.
In a computer, if there is a problem with a piece of hardware, it may need to be repaired or replaced, to restore proper function. Likewise, in the body, if there is a problem with a muscle, tendon, or bone, it may need to be repaired or replaced to restore proper function.
If there is a problem with the operating system of a computer, this can create many problems in a single area, such a printer not working as it should, or throughout many areas of the system, causing problems with printers, keyboards, and hard drives. Problems with how the brain interprets and processes signals can result in muscles, organs, or other structures not functioning as they should.
If the problem is with the “Hardware”, applying a fix to the “Software” will probably not give you the desired results. Likewise, if the problem is with the “Software”, repairing or replacing the “Hardware” does not fix the underlying problem.
Sometimes both the “Hardware” and the “Software” are damaged, and both will need to be addressed. Most of the treatments that are utilized in healthcare today, focus on treating “Hardware” issues. While a “Hardware” fix may be needed, often times there is a “Software” problem that either led to the Hardware issue, or developed as a result of Hardware issue, or the treatment for it.
Understanding the differences and the interface between these two areas, and providing appropriate treatment, is key to providing a comprehensive solution to these dysfunctions and the problems they can cause.
Dysfunctions create inefficiency within the body. This can lead to pain, decreases in performance, and injury. Correcting these dysfunctions results in the body functioning more efficiently, reductions in pain, improved performance, decreased risk of injury, and overall improvement in function.
We utilize a safe, effective, and non-invasive approach to determine the nature of many of these “Software” problems, then apply a correction, and a “Reset” to restore proper function. These corrections tend to produce results very quickly, usually within seconds. Sometimes additional reinforcement of the correction is beneficial if the dysfunction has been present for a long time.
