All too often in conventional rehabilitative settings they focus on the symptom of pain and the reduction of that symptom. Pain and injuries are often isolated instead of looking at the body as a system, the therapists look at the symptom as a part.
At the Body Project we focus on getting to the root cause of what is creating the pain and dysfunction, so we can not only get you out of pain, but we can help fix it completely once and for all.
With most therapy programs the dysfunction that created the pain in the first place is never addressed and people end up bouncing from doctor to doctor and therapist to therapist. They are chasing the pain rather than correcting the root cause.
After assessing your body we will then customize a plan specifically for your imbalance, not just give you some cookie cutter program that doesn't allow for the multiple variables that can create your symptom
Your body is unique and therefore it needs a plan for you and your needs, not just a general program. When other practitioners struggle to get results with their patients they send them to us.

Graston is used to enhance the ability to detect adhesions or scar tissue in the affected areas.
Restrictive tissue anywhere in the body is abnormal and can cause not only local pain but can be related to the cause of distant pain seemingly unrelated parts of the body.
Our objective is to improve the health of muscle tissue by bringing blood flow back to the areas of pain and dysfunction so the body can rebalance and heal.
RAPID RELEASE / DMS
Adhesions(scar tissue) in the body may cause tightness, tension and pain. These adhesions can be a result of injury, surgery, overuse or repetitive stress. Two tools that are used to break up adhesions are the Rapid Release and the DMS (Deep Muscle Stimulator).
Both tools use the power of high frequency vibration to break up painful adhesions to release muscles and nerves, allowing the body to quickly restore ease of movement and releasing the pain.
Your body will be around a lot longer than that expensive handbag. Invest in yourself.
COLD LASER THERAPY
Use of low level lasers (cold lasers or soft tissue lasers) enhances cellular function and it can also encourage the formation of collagen and cartilage in damaged joints and the repair of tendons and ligaments.
Cold lasers and soft tissue lasers are gentle and non-heating to the tissues. They are configured with frequencies and power densities that are favourable to the cells and tissues of the body.
Pain results from trauma, inflammation and/or cellular disruption, malfunction, or less than optimal cellular function. Healing and pain relief come with cellular normalization. Low level lasers have been used worldwide for over 30 years.
FREQUENCY SPECIFIC MICRO-CURRENT
The body is made up of a vast number of cells. These cells act like tiny batteries, storing and releasing energy. Each cell, like any battery, has a measurable electrical charge, which must be maintained in order to function properly.
Energy flows constantly between all cells throughout the electrical circuitry of the body. When damage or trauma occurs to living tissue, there is a disruption in the electrical capacity of the involved cells.
This condition is generally accompanied by pain in the area and often results in the body's inability to completely repair itself.
Microcurrent therapy uses gentle electrical currents that mimic the body’s own electrical impulses.
These electrical currents jump start the cells and opens up the damaged area to increased blood flow and circulation so that it can rapidly begin treating soft-tissue injuries by the body's own natural processes.
After identifying muscle Imbalances we will prescribe exercise and stretching programs that will help rebalance your musculature so your muscles can again adsorb the stress and force of daily living so you don’t allow that stress to go into your joints.
I started to think that I would never be able to enjoy playing tennis without pain again. I had trouble raising my arm over my shoulder without causing a great deal of pain. My sister recommended I go to the Body Project as she had gotten incredible results with her shoulder.
The team at The Body Project quickly identified my problem, put together a program and by my 6th session I was completely pain-free. I continued my treatment for four more sessions to get even more range of motion for my shoulder.
I am thrilled with the results and I come back once a month to make sure I am proactive so I never end up with this again. I am playing tennis at a higher level than I have in years and I’m in my 60s.
I have been dealing with a bad back for over 17 years, and I have had multiple Cortisone shots, back surgery and lots of anti-inflammatories. After working with three different physical therapists I had all but given up hope forever finding the answer to being pain-free.
After my assessment I realized the reason I didn’t get better with conventional therapy was they were only addressing my body structurally, and now looking at all the other variables like the Body Project does.
After just seven sessions I was pain-free and I went on to do 13 more sessions to strengthen my core better than it ever has been in my life. One of my kids even said to me the other day, “mom its so great to have you back to being your old self, fun, energetic and full of life.” I am grateful for the staff at the body Project and all that they have done for me.
