Specialized Techniques

ASTYM Technique

ASTYM is an advanced form of soft tissue mobilization which enables clinicians to initiate remodeling and regeneration of dysfunctional tissues. It has been proven to be a highly effective treatment for chronic tendonitis/tendinosis.

Blood Flow Restriction

B Stong is a form of BFR (Blood Flow Restriction), which modifies the blood flow to the limb during exercise to make the brain think the muscle is working hard. B Strong uses inflatable bands worn around the upper portion of the arms and/or legs to safely slow the blood in the limb. This will increase growth hormone levels which help promote increased performance, improves energy levels, and helps maintain bone density. BFR is a safe and effective tool that will maximize a faster recovery from injury or surgery by facilitating healing to restore strength and endurance. This will help restore the muscle with less recovery time, and provides the ability to exercise uninjured tissue with less muscle atrophy.


Cupping therapy is an alternative medicine used by therapists to help improve pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being, as well as a type of deep-tissue massage. Therapists use silicone or plastic cups to create a localized suction which creates a decompression of the underlying tissues and allows for improved blood flow to the area. Cupping may be used alone or with exercises/stretches to help improve movement.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a technique used by therapists to treat pain and movement impairments. Therapists who perform dry needling use a “dry needle,” one without medication or injection to perform this technique. Dry needling allows the therapist to address deeper tissues including underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues in order to decrease pain and improve mobility.

Parkinson’s LSVT BIG & LOUD

LSVT BIG effectively trains muscles to perform small and large motor tasks such as, buttoning a shirt and getting up from sofa or chair.It also works to imporve/maintain balance while walking, performing self cares or other daily tasks. LSVT BIG’s main focus is “move BIG!”

LSVT LOUD is a speech treatment program for people with Parkinson’s disease or those with other neurological conditions. Individuals with Parkinson’s disease gradually lose their sense of awareness of their vocal loudness causing them to speak a softer tone and believing that they are talking really loud. With LSVT LOUD, we focus on one main goal “speak LOUD!” During therapy, we train them to be aware of their loudness in order to improve how well other people understand them and to increase their confidence.
