We help our patients heal. 

Merging Eastern and Western approaches, we return athletes to competition, get performers back on stage, and help people from all walks of life overcome pain. 

We combine orthopedic treatments with Traditional Chinese Medicine to address musculoskeletal issues with a series of muscle tests and activation techniques. We then use holistic healing methods to alleviate the underlying causes.

We have had particular success treating patients with shin splints, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, muscle strains, joint sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, and osteoarthritis.

We also help people achieve their fitness and weight-loss goals by designing and monitoring custom-tailored fitness programs.
