The Hesch Method

Integrated treatment of patterns of dysfunction throughout the whole body. For over 35 years, Dr. Jerry Hesch, DPT, MHS, PT of the Hesch Institute has treated individuals suffering from acute & chronic pain from hypomobility and hypermobility/instability from sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and dysfunction in joints throughout the body. Over the course of his career, Dr. Jerry Hesch, DPT, MHS, PT has developed a whole body approach to evaluation and treatment of connective tissues and joint dysfunction known as the Hesch Method.

NeuroKinetic Therapy

NeuroKinetic Therapy is a sophisticated form of manual therapy that combines motor control theory and manual muscle testing. The science of motor control theory states that the motor control center in the cerebellum stores all the coordination patterns of the body.

Myoskeletal Techniques

Myoskeletal Alignment is a term developed and coined by Erik Dalton, PhD, in the early 80s after seeing a need for a more integrative perspective on pain science as it applies to the human body. After spending years working as a certified Rolfer® and studying under legendary figures such as Drs. Vladimir Janda and Phillip Greenman, Erik realized a broader approach was needed to better help his clients in pain. Erik’s fascination with Janda’s upper and lower crossed postural model challenged him to design a way to incorporate and teach this basic, but powerful, discovery to the massage and bodywork community. In 1998, the Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques book and video set was released. This very popular MAT home-study course included Dalton’s “Dirty-Dozen” routines for assessing and correcting pain problems associated with Janda’s commonly seen “crossed posture” model. It was then that Myoskeletal Alignment — an integrative marriage of the work of Vladimir Janda, Rolfing, and manipulative osteopathy — was born. The MAT program was developed as a tool to help relieve our nation’s neck/ back pain epidemic. By incorporating muscle-balancing techniques with joint-mobilization maneuvers, manual therapists learn to quickly identify and correct dysfunctional neurologically driven strain patterns before they become pain patterns.

Ashiatsu

Ashiatsu is a bodywork form that applies therapeutic pressure (through clothing) to promote health and well being. Although "Ashiatsu" literally means foot (ashi) pressure (atsu) in Japanese, ashiatsu techniques also make use of knees, elbows, palms, and fingers where necessary and appropriate. By working with the body, Ashiatsu can heighten total (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) awareness. Treatments typically include stretching, stimulation or sedation of acupressure points/meridians, and structural alignment techniques. The work is effective therapeutically and clients will often feel the work deeply in their muscles, internal organs, and bones.

Explained everything she was doing and listened to me when I explained my painful area. She had a lot of great suggestions on improving my problem areas. I have had many massages thru the years and April’s was the most thorough and I left feeling great and hopeful for progress as I continue coming back to her for more treatments.
