“Johnny not only performed effective trigger point/myofascial release techniques that relieved my pain, but he also got me stronger through core strength workouts.”

“I went to Johnny to fix some of my muscular imbalances and alignment issues. He does NOT push you to buy more sessions. He tries to alleviate your problem in as few sessions as possible. He teaches you how to work on your problems on your own rather than make you dependent on him.”
Manual Therapy is a physical treatment primarily used to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability which includes muscle manipulation, joint mobilization, and joint manipulation.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) incorporates soft tissue manipulation techniques that balance the central nervous system (brain, spinal column and nerves) with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system. NMT is based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system maintains homeostatic balance. These same laws dictate how the central nervous system initiates pain response.
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is an innovative system of manual, assisted stretch therapy techniques that includes joint capsule, fascial, and muscular stretching to rapidly eliminate pain, improve mobility, restore impaired function, reduce recovery time and optimize athletic performance.
FST is very different than what we think of as traditional stretching or bodywork in that it is more functional and dynamic. Unlike traditional stretching or bodywork that only attempts work on muscles, FST engages the entire myofascial system by targeting muscles as well as their neighboring joints, ligaments, tendons, and bones.
