Advanced Orthopedic Bodywork

Advanced Orthopedic Bodywork is best suited for clients with significant orthopedic conditions such as injury or deeply held chronic tension patterns.

Our therapist, David O’Connell, has more than 20 years of education and experience that he brings to his sessions.  Utilizing this experience and knowledge, a session of Advanced Orthopedic Bodywork can include:

  • Active Isolated Stretching a precise, systematic method of muscle lengthening and conditioning which provides greater flexibility, mobility and pain relief.
  • Applied Movement Neurology – a comprehensive system of brain based drills, gymnastics, hand balancing & martial arts movements to functionally drive the nervous system to relieve pain, promote optimal respiration and increase complex motion
  • Myofascial Releasea hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
  • Manual Ligament Therapy – a gentle hands on technique that stimulates the ligaments to quickly and painlessly relax muscles via reduction of hypertonicity.

Rates:
$125 – 60 minutes
