Functional Integrative Natural Care

westchester Sports and wellnessOur philosophy is based on restoring healthy movement – movement in the body’s joints and soft tissues, movement of electrical signals in the nervous system, movement of energy through the fascia, movement of nutrients and waste via blood and fluid through the vessels and cell membranes.

If movement on any level is either restricted or excessive, it leads to imbalances which will eventually cause pain, injury or illness. If restricted, then remove the restriction and restore. If excessive, then regulate. Healthy movement is essential for healthy life.

We use a sophisticated integrative combination of the most effective natural therapies to achieve excellent results. These include:

  • Functional soft tissue techniques, including Active Release Technique (ART) and Fascial Manipulation (FM) to break down scar tissue and release fascial tension.
  • Acupuncture to regulate central and autonomic nervous system function, increase energetic flow and microcirculation and release tension in muscle and connective tissue.
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques such as Graston and Fascial Abrasion Technique to reduce scar tissue and release fascial tension.
  • Joint manipulation techniques to normalize joint mechanics.
  • Functional rehabilitation to restore optimal function and prevent re-injury.
  • Nutrition interventions to assist the healing and repair process and to enhance cellular health.

We aim to help all people, athletes and non-athletes alike, to be as healthy as they can be, maximizing their potential using the most effective and safe natural methods. Since everyone is a unique individual with individual needs, our treatment plans are designed specifically for each patient based on a thorough consultation and examination.

Having proudly served the Westchester and Greater NY area for over 10 years, we are grateful and committed to continuing to exceed our patients’ expectations in providing the highest quality of care.
