Neuromuscular therapy is viewed as a scientific approach to muscular pain relief that seeks to balance the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system; enhance the function of joints, muscles, and movement; and release endorphin.


Sharkey (2 8: 1 -43) states that the pressure applied using neuromuscular methods are aimed at ridding the system of points of irritability, relieving compression of nerves by surrounding body structures, correcting postural distortions that have resulted in the underdevelopment of supporting muscles and led to weakness, and ensuring that adequate nutrition gets to the cells.


Modern Neuromuscular Techniques. Neuromuscular therapy also appears to be one of the most effective types of massage therapy for lower back pain. It is said to encourage blood flow and break up lactic acid so that the muscle can begin to again accept a cleansupply of oxygen. "What Is Neuromuscular Therapy?" (2 9) .Sharkey, J. .Chaitow, L. Chaitow (2 3: 2-91) reports that the primary conditions which call for the application of neuromuscular therapy are those that are associated with chronic pain, e.g., sciatica, rotator cuff dysfunction, carpal tunnel syndrome, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and migraines.


There has also been some success with neuromuscular therapy in the treatment of motor and movement problems associated with Parkinson's Disease (Craig, & associates, 2 6:2127-2133), as well as with people who have chronic obstructive lung disease, where it has been used to improve pulmonary function, respiratory muscle strength, and overall quality of life (Beeken & associ


The NTC (2 9: 1) states that neuromuscular therapy is meant to workwith other therapies for chronic pain sufferers.


The Neuromuscular Therapy Center (NTC, 2 9:1-2) definesneuromuscular therapy as a specific type of massage therapy, andflexibility stretching that assists with recovery from chronic painsyndromes.


Further, Sharkey (2 8: 11 -43) reports that it is often used to release tension and any associated pain that arises from stress. These include back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, ankle pain, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, Golfers/Tennis Elbow, frozen shoulder, almost any sports-related injury, repetitive strain injuries, carpel tunnel syndrome, bad posture, cramps, and strains. The method holds that six physiological factors are responsible for the creation and/or intensification of pain and that manipulation of these six factors can also lead to recovery from pain.

    • NET Neuro Emotional Technique

      "I Cannot Seem to Get Over My Emotional Issue" We hear this a lot....and we want you to know that many physical dysfunctions are related to emotional blockages. As we move through life, emotionally-charged events have been known to inhibit optimal health and function. By releasing “stuck” emotions, often times pain miraculously disappears. The pain can be only a reminder that there are some unresolved emotional blockages. Ask yourself, "Did I fall or was I physically injured or has this issue developed / gotten worse over-time? Does it flair up and sometimes disappear? These could be indicators that you may have stuck emotions which are affecting your health. NET is an excellent tool to release these emotional blockages. ."~What is NET?,

    • Acupuncture

      Acupuncture has been shown to relax and rebalance the body. When there is balance there can be no dis-ease which is why Acupuncture is able to address such a wide range of issues from physical and hormonal to emotional.

Try Facial Massage and/or Acupuncture to stimulate blood flow to the face, building facial muscles and helping to increase collagen for a more youthful appearance. A minimum of 6-10 weekly session recommended for optimal results. You leave feeling rejuvenated and fabulous!

    • Cupping

      An effective therapy for joint restriction, fascial tightness and addressing the restructuring of scar tissue.

    • Neuro-Muscular Manual Therapy

      Helps release muscular and fascial tissue which is common in pain, physical dysfunction and restricted range of motion. Excellent therapy before deciding to have surgery which could eliminate the need or after surgery to regain full/complete function.

    • Specialized Applied Kinesiology

      Through the electrolyte system, our bodies conduct energy. Specialized Applied Kinesiology test the body’s electrical conductivity and helps uncover energy blockages. Blockages cause imbalance and dysfunction and Specialized Applied Kinesiology is an awesome tool which provides biofeedback information for therapy options.

    • Massage Therapy

    • Nutritional Counseling

      Most health issues have an underlying nutritional deficiency. At our office, we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance the patient's healing process.

    • Axialtonal Alignment

      Utilizing a specialized sequence of the Acupuncture points along with points used for Chakra Alignment which seems to be able to activate the connection between the body's meridian lines (Oriental Medicine) and the axiatonal lines or energetic matrix of the universe. Depending on the actual sequence used, the results seem to affected physical blockages as well as path blockages. If you feel you are in a holding pattern in your life or your health, this is something you might consider.

    • Allergy Elimination Technique

      A non-invasive technique to explore possible allergens and eliminate them almost immediately. This system works by holding allergy "stressors" vials on/near the body and using bio-energetic feedback (specialized applied kinesiology) to determine if this is an allergen for your body. This unusual technique works with the body/brain to let go of the allergic reaction to the substance leaving you free to enjoy your life again.

    • Zyto and Bio-energetic Therapies

      "When the parts and pieces of a system work in harmony with one another, we call this coherence. The greater a system's coherence, oftentimes the greater its efficiency. Measuring this signal of cooperation, or the lack thereof, provides understanding about what may increase or decrease efficiency."

    “My main focus is to help patients re-balance their minds and bodies through alternative therapies. The body has the innate ability to heal itself. Through my practice I provide various therapies, information, tools, and advice to the patient so they can achieve their optimal health and regain their lives.” ~ Patricia J Ahner, AP, LAc, LMT
