I highly recommend Amy and her varied techniques for multiple issues such as strength building, flexibility, posture, etc.. Amy gives personalized care  and attention that goes beyond her established therapy sessions and she is a font of knowledge with respect to health, nutrition, etc."


During the initial consultation, a postural and movement analysis is provided. Pictures are taken to compare before and after the stretch. Myofascial release/mashing is provided for the first part of the appointment. Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching and Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) is then used in the second part of the appointment to help correct muscle imbalances which improve mobility and reduce pain. Exercises and stretches are given to do on your own for continual improvement.

Frequently asked questions

What is Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching?

Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching is a revolutionary technique which utilizes a person's own resistance for increasing lasting mobility. Ki-Hara uses scientifically-backed methods to reduce injury, balance muscle groups and increase flexibility using concentric exercises for strengthening and eccentric movements for stretching. During Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching, the muscles are being contracted and lengthened at the same time so the muscles are only taken as far as they can resist to keep stretching safe and effective. The basic concept of Ki-Hara is that the muscles are strong throughout their ranges of motion. We've found that an "inflexible" muscle may actually be unable to stretch because of inactivated muscles, scar tissue or tightness elsewhere. The Ki-Hara method stresses the importance of working through these imbalances to release the muscles surrounding the problem area to allow for true flexibility and strength in full range surrounding the joints. Benefits of Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching: -a scientifically-backed eccentric strength-training program -creates lasting gains in flexibility, strength and aerobic capacity -improves performance and recovery -creates more powerful, explosive, and core stable movements -realigns the body to improve posture -removes chronic joint stress, painful muscle tension and injuries -prevents injury from overstretching -targets specific areas of existing or potential injury To learn more visit:

What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. A low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly for a sustained amount of time will allow a fascia to elongate. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) Myofascial Release is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia. To learn more visit:

What is Functional Range Conditioning (FRC)?

Developed by world-renowned musculoskeletal expert Dr. Andreo Spina, Functional Range Conditioning is a comprehensive joint training system based in scientific principals and research. There are 3 main goals when training using FRC® system and all are closely interrelated, and acquired simultaneously: 1. Mobility development: Mobility refers to the amount of active, usable motion that one possesses. The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively. 2. Joint strength: While improving mobility and movement potential, the FRC® system also acts to bullet proof (or safe-guard) your joints so that movement can be executed safely. 3. Body control: Training with FRC® improves the function of your nervous system. This leads to a reduction of pain and injury, joint health and longevity, as well as an increased ability to move freely and easily. To learn more visit:

What is "mashing"?

A fusion of Eastern massage methods mixed with foot 'mashing. See example.

Will I be sore from stretching?

Most likely. Ki-Hara is an active form of stretching. You will be contracting your muscles as you stretch, potentially causing muscle soreness the next day.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable, stretchy clothes. Workout clothes are perfect.
