Pain is a pervasive reminder that something is wrong with your body. The cause of chronic pain is sometimes shrouded in mystery, because its origins are found somewhere in the distant past. To add to the dilemma, the location where you feel your pain is not necessarily where the injury happened.
Holistic pain therapy requires a bit of detective work and, just like your injury and level of pain are unique, your treatment should also be tailored to you. Pain may be linked to trauma, dysfunctional gait, or improperly functioning muscles. Balance in Motion offers groundbreaking new treatments such as P-DTR and NKT that have been developed based on new findings in pain therapy and take into consideration your entire body, from head to toe. In addition, I also use more traditional Eastern and Western modalities.
I specialize in groundbreaking and unconventional, as well as traditional modalities.
Treatment will always depend on your particular needs and may consist of any singular or combination of modalities.
