Soften, Lengthen, Strengthen

Whether muscles are in spasm from injury, intense workouts, or stress, the first step in relief is to soften the tissue and work through any adhesions or scar tissue that may be present in the muscle or around joints.

Restoring normal range of motion to joints is essential for full recovery. Our practitioners use a variety of stretching techniques including proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), dynamic stretching routines, and reciprocal inhibition stretching techniques.
Once pain has diminished and normal range of motion has been restored it is essential to strengthen muscles and create correct muscle memory patterns. This essential piece of the puzzle is what creates lasting solutions to injuries, imbalances, and irregular biomechanical patterns that have developed over time.

Kim was awesome! I could barely move after I ran a marathon and she helped my muscles feel so much more relaxed. Go see her! – Amanda M., Cincinnati, OH
So helpful! Great for runners and athletes. I was on my feet all day for work and training for a half marathon and went to Kim for Plantar Fasciitis, which was incredibly painful. She treated my calves and feet and walked me through a number of stretches and preventative things I could do to keep it from coming back! She was friendly and helpful and now, I am back to running pain-free! - Allison D., Cincinnati, OH
