We are your interdisciplinary team who helps you restore where you have broken down. We believe in prevention, and the medicine we prescribe is movement. We have various reset techniques such as Gunn IMS, manipulation and mobilization of both joint and soft tissues, traditional acupuncture, and both cupping and graston techniques. We believe however, it’s how we educate to realign - to bring the body back into alignment, ( using mobility exercises, yoga, nutrition, environment changes…) and choose to restore your movement patterns (through stabilization, motor programming, fundamental movement training…) is what separates us from the rest. We value the importance of the mind-body connection through strength in movement. We feel healing truly takes place when patients find this connection and adopts it into their lifestyle and training regimen – and becomes even more powerful when you learn how to adapt it to the demands through different times or seasons of life. Restorative is not just a place of quick fixes, Restorative is place where people come to restore balance to both body and mind. We are very proud to have a special focus in 1-on-1 private individualized injury care, management, and prevention. We feel this is missing in sports rehabilitation and believe our approach heals you on a cellular level.

The final stage in your rehabilitation program - one often overlooked or under prescribed. Recovery can be as simple as having a rest day to allow the tissues to adapt to the new loads being applied, or it can be an active recovery where we add in an alternative form of exercise at a lower intensity so the nervous system can auto-regulate. Recovery is not to be underestimated, as the old saying goes, “train smarter, not harder”.
