Dana Renewed His Physically Freedom to Hike And Workout Again...
I start coming here because I had severe back and neck pain from surgery... I was so limited...

I can hike so much further and so much easier. My performance has gone up tremendously from 0 to 100% I mean literally from poor performance to what can be described as my old self. -Dana
You may be surprised to learn that Your movement Inefficiencies could be at the root of your chronic pain...
Partner with with a Movement Therapist to experience physical freedom and live life everyday to the fullest.

Your pain exists because your body isn't moving correctly and it's throwing it out of balance. It could be the result of an old injury, hours of sitting behind a desk or the wheel of a car, repetitive use injuries from exercise or work, or simply a postural dysfunction such as scoliosis. All of these movement inefficiencies can knock your body out of perfect motion, causing pain, sleeping troubles, and limitations.

We combine our therapists' expertise with technology to assess your mobility, posture and patterns and create a personalized plan that will put your body back in to balance and efficient movement, eliminating the dysfunction causing your pain.

We're excited for you to move better, feel better, perform better and get rid of those nagging injuries, fear or pain you're feeling. 

We're here to help resolve your movement efficiencies and restore your physical freedom permanently!
The Movement Method is particularly effective for:
  • Back Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • ​Ankle Pain
  • ​Shoulder, Elbow & Wrist Pain
  • ​Migraines
  • ​Plantar Fasciitis

  • ​Unlock Your Movement Potential
Postural Imbalance
The first step in beginning your journey to moving pain free and unlock your physical potential is improving your postural imbalance. Most of us as we get older, sit more, have incorrect posture when we sit or stand. If you can imagine over time (years and years) that really can affect every inch of our body, whether you're having pain in you shoulder, back, knees, hips. etc. Having poor posture prevents us from moving pain free and can really make simple tasks painful such as getting up from sitting for awhile or ducking down into your car or getting out of your car, and even running/biking. 
Faulty Patterns
90% of humans today have faulty movement patterns, but it's your fault, we've been taught the wrong way to workout, no movement practice, no fascia release, no proper warm ups, no post stretching after a workout. Which in turn creates faulty movement patterns that unless you take control of your physical health will take control of you over time. When you have faulty movement patterns, your workouts are almost hurting you, no helping you. This is never fun for someone to hear but if you're doing the movements improperly it's probably better for you do not do them or do something else that will actually help you better your movement patters so you can do them properly.
When locked up by your chronic pain, it can seem like you'll never feel better and be able to live the active life of movement that you want—especially if you've tried other therapies and drug-based treatments that only worked temporarily or not at all.

Because movement is life we help you get to the source of your pain so you can live.

Most chronic pain treatment methods only address symptoms or try to mask pain, we get to the root cause of your ongoing discomfort and because of our comprehensive approach we identify, focus and correct all three inefficiencies so you can finally feel better for good.

Solve the big reason your daily pain daily. We help when others can't or have failed. Resolving your movement inefficiencies will enable you to get back to doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.

FAQ
How Long Are Sessions?
Your Movement Stretch sessions are custom-designed to fit into your busy lifestyle and typically last 30 minutes to an hour.
Who will be helping me?
Your therapist is a well-trained, Movement Academy Certified professional who is dedicated to helping people like you get better. Their therapy practice is built upon a deep understanding of anatomy, postural correction and movement science, and they are committed to helping you live a life without limits.
What do I need?
Your success depends on your ability to commit to the process and trust your therapist. After that, an open mind and comfortable clothes are all it takes. Your therapist will connect with you prior to your first appointment to make sure everything is in order so that it will be a success.

Is The Movement Therapy Difficult?
You’ll find your therapy sessions are simple and relatively easy. They will present a gentle challenge but never cause pain or serious discomfort.
What is Movement Therapy?
We believe that both chronic and acute pain is due to movement inefficiencies in the body as it loses its designed postural alignment, mobility and healthy movement habit patterns. The human body is designed to move! However, with most of society becoming more and more sedentary, the body develops musculoskeletal dysfunctions and compensations. When those are present, pain and injury set in or are lurking right around the corner. The Movement Therapy Method restores the body back to its natural designed optimal state, alleviating pain and returning you back to an active, pain-free lifestyle.
How Does Movement Therapy Work?
Movement Therapy uses a combination of hands-on therapy and coaching you through a series of gentle exercises and stretches to return musculoskeletal balance and symmetry to your body, reinstate mobility and reinforce good patterns. It’s no secret that muscles move bones. If your body has lost its designed posture, it’s because muscles have moved your bones into a new, dysfunctional position. Pain is the body’s way of alerting you to the fact that your body isn’t aligned—and therefore isn’t moving—properly. Through Movement Therapy, your muscles will be reeducated and reminded how they need to function in order to maintain proper alignment to achieve permanent lasting results.
How much does it cost?
Movement Therapy is an investment in terms of both time and finances. Your Movement Optimization Plan will take 30 minutes to two hours to complete. Although not everyone needs two hours, those who do are in so much pain they will do their micro plan daily, regardless of how long it takes.
On the financial side of things, we offer different therapy packages and experiences: You can work face to face with a therapist either in person or via digital therapy. We also offer online therapy. Talk with your therapist to determine which option suits you best and get an idea of how many visits you may need.
How long will it take for me to see results and feel better?
All of our clients respond differently and on different timelines. However, the vast majority feel different after their first visit. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself; you just have to give it a chance. Remember, you most likely didn’t get into your current position overnight, and you won’t get out of it overnight. Movement Therapy is a process, but one with a remarkable success rate since its inception.
How often do I need to do my exercises?
We ask that you do your exercises, what we call your “micro plan,” daily, although some clients will need to do their micro's more than once per day. The Therapy is designed to systematically and methodically chip away at your inability, dysfunctions and compensations. We have to remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day! By doing your micro daily, you are giving your body the positive stimuli that it needs, unlock mobility, restoring proper alignment, and eliminating pain!
Do I have to do my micro plan in its entirety?
Yes, you need to do your full micro plan at least once per day, in the given order. One exercise sets up the next, so sequencing is important. Outside of that time, you can do any exercises that you feel are beneficial for your body.
Is it normal to feel sore after doing my micro plan?
Soreness is normal and can be a good thing. We call this “muscle awakening”, and it should diminish the more times you do your micro as your muscles adapt and adjust to the new work. Keep in mind that soreness is different from pain. If you are experiencing true pain, let your therapist know so any necessary adjustments can be made.
Is Movement Therapy covered by insurance?
Being non-medical, The Therapy is not directly covered by insurance. However, many of our clients have success getting reimbursed from their insurance provider for at least a portion of what they pay. Movement Studio does not file anything directly with your insurance provider, but we will do whatever we can—provide a letter of explanation, posture photos, etc.—to help you with the reimbursement process. Most of our clientele are able to use their health savings account or flexible spending account to pay for Movement therapy.
How long does it take to finish my therapy?
At the Movement Studio, we pride ourselves on fostering an education-based therapy experience. We will work with you hands on as well as walk with you, step-by-step, through each of your visits. Most of our clients need somewhere between 6 and 12 visits to see results. Keep in mind that we are working to eliminate structural dysfunctions that have been decades in the making.
Can I still see my chiropractor, physical therapist, massage therapist, or other health practitioner while doing The Movement Therapy?
Yes, Movement Therapy can be used in conjunction with many different healing modalities. That being said, our goal is to return control of your health back to your hands so that ultimately you aren’t dependent on another person or machine to achieve an optimal state of health. Movement Therapy educational approach teaches you on what you need to do to get faster results and know how to prevent it from ever coming back again.
Is Movement Therapy different than yoga or Pilates?
Yes. Movement Therapy requires a hands on therapist combined with a specific tailored set of exercises designed to eliminate your movement inefficiencies that are causing your pain. The majority of yoga and Pilates classes are group-based where everyone in the class is asked to do the same exercises, poses, or moves. Movement Therapy fosters a client-driven experience where you and your therapist work together to develop your exercise micro plan, taking only what your body is able to functionally give on that day.
Do I need to purchase expensive equipment?
While in some cases equipment may be required, the vast majority of our exercises can be performed with items you have lying around your house.
