Therapy2Motion Keeps You Moving
What is Therapy2Motion?
Therapy2motion combines massage therapy with Rehabilitative Pilates to help bridge the gap between assisted help and the self governing control of your movement. After more than a decade of working in the rehabilitative field we have often seen a disconnect between the rehabilitation of local tissue health and the post-rehabilitation for strong whole-body movement. How does one take a restored achilles tendon and turn it into a strong and energetically efficient run? Many times we see injury rehabilitation fleeting and stopping short of bringing you back to long term health. Cutting corners, before the body has been given the chance to re-integrate the newly healthy tissue into its full-body movement patterns, has been a leading cause of re-injury.
In response to injury, the body will attempt to compensate and rebalance itself by altering symmetry. Some muscles shut down or become inhibited, forcing other muscles to become overworked. In doing so, we generate painful tissue abnormalities and improper joint mechanics. Therapy2motion works to reveal the source of injury and retrains the body to remove the compensation patterns resulting in pain-free long term health.
