"healing by cause, not by symptom"
Serving clients in all 50 of the United States
Functional Nutrition is an approach that considers the client as a whole. Instead of just treating a symptom, our team will look "upstream" and ask, "Why is this happening? What's the root cause? Can we make a change at the source of the problem?"
These are VIRTUAL VISITS (Phone or Video) in all the 50 states with a few select in-person CA visits available.

ART (Active Release Technique)
P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex)
Allison Ayer, BA, CPT, LMT has 23 years of experience as a practitioner and is also an instructor utilizing the latest science-driven methods in bodywork with a focus on the brain-body connection. Her toolbox includes both strong and gentle techniques so she can tailor the session to best serve your needs.
Active Release Technique (ART) is a highly specific tissue work for strain and pain for every muscle and ligament. A session includes pinning and stretching while the client is guided into movement to shorten and lengthen the muscle. The client’s active participation of movement during a stretch helps both control the intensity and neurologically improve the rate of tissue release.
Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR) is a manual neuro-therapy that restores your natural power and function by resetting neurological "software settings." This therapy helps you to reduce or eliminate pain, lower stress, sleep, concentrate and digest better, improve athletic performance, and have greater range of motion.
P-DTR may be able to help even if you haven't had success with other modalities, by reprogramming your nerve receptors and improving their communication with the brain, so that your body can restore its own natural functionality of muscles, organs, joints and all integrated structures.
