Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is the use of skilled hands-on treatment techniques that help re-set your body for success.  Often, pain is not a cause of dysfunction but instead a result of nearby stiffness or tightness that displaces force or load, resulting in pain where your body is attempting to compensate.  Manual therapy helps to re-establish your body’s potential for smooth, dynamic, and efficient movement.

Manual therapy techniques used at Embody include joint mobilizations, soft tissue release, strain/counterstrain techinques, active release techniques, myofascial decompression/cupping, functional manual release, visceral manipulation, and more.  The specific techniques used in your treatment are chosen to most effectively address your individual functional and wellness goals.
