Astym therapy is great for me because it has been used on my shoulder and both knees. It helps with the scar tissue in healing and helps to get my muscles back in order. My Therapist Mona is a Great Person and helps me a lot. I can’t give her any gift, as it is not allowed but she is the #1 in my book.

I had been suffering with plantar fasciitis in my right foot for a very long time, years off and on. Sometimes it was so bad, I could barely walk. Those first few steps in the morning were incredibly painful. I have always enjoyed working out, running and being active. I would have to give up running for months on end at times and had to adjust my routine in the gym to accommodate the pain in my foot. I had seen a podiatrist many times, used custom orthotics in my shoes daily and had cortisone shots in my heel many times. Nothing seemed to work for long.
I began taking Pilates at Back2Normal to incorporate a good stretching routine into my weekly workout schedule in an effort to help all the areas of my body that were limited from tight muscles, including my foot. There I met Lisa Chase, who owns the facility and is an amazing physical therapist. She began treating me for my plantar fasciitis and some lower back pain. Lisa introduced Astym Therapy to my therapy for several weeks. It can be uncomfortable if you are already in pain, but I noticed a difference immediately after each treatment and after several weeks, my foot is almost 100%. I still have tightness if I don’t keep up the stretching, but when I begin to feel it tightening up, I make sure to get in and break up that tissue with some Astym therapy from Lisa. It has made a marked difference in my fitness capabilities and just my daily comfort.

Because of a fall, I suffered severe whiplash. I could not move my neck at all without extreme pain nor could I lift anything without suffering. I was in much distress as I could not sleep nor raise myself to get out of bed.
I felt relief after my first Astym treatment and more and more as I continued with the Astym treatments. I so wanted to get back on my bicycle again, as this was completely impossible after my injury. I now have total recovery, as there is nothing I cannot do, even riding my bike.
Thank you, LORD, for giving the knowledge needed to develop this wonderful Astym treatment. I am so grateful for the kind therapist, Jolene Hancock who worked with me to gain my complete recovery. GOD BLESS YOU ALL

My cancer surgery left me with nerve damage in my leg. It felt like a rubber band had been placed around my upper thigh cutting off circulation. One visit to my Astym provider (a physical therapist) and my pain is gone. Try this please! It is a painful experience but at least when it is finished you can be pain free.

My left shoulder/neck had been hurting since January 2017 after carrying around a backpack vacuum around for six months. I had a myleogram done and that didn’t find anything wrong with me so then I had a steroid injection which didn’t help the pain. I had a MRI of my neck and then another of my shoulder and they both came out fine so I was referred to a pain management doctor who suggested I go to physical therapy and have astym therapy done. After 9 visits. Twice a week for four weeks I can say that I have very little pain.

When I started therapy after surgery I could barely move my shoulder. But after 5 to 6 sessions of Astym therapy I was almost reaching my goals that were set by my Dr. I graduated on 8-17-17, without Astym therapy I think I would still be in therapy another 3 to 4 weeks.

I had and accident at work where I got an ankle sprain and a open wound at my Achilles area. The wound healed but the pain from the scar was very intense and seemed not to go away.
After the first Astym session I felt clearly a difference. I just had my second Astym session and the pain is almost gone. I m very impressed, especially since I really didn’t believe in it.

I could barely walk when I started therapy! My therapist Vincent Guadagna has been doing Astym treatment and the mobility has gotten much better! It was sore at first but with each treatment it has gotten better and better!

I had extensive shoulder surgery and suffered pain in the deltoid
Muscle. Ella suggested Astym therapy and I agreed. Astym therapy gave me the relief that I needed to do the required exercises to strengthen the shoulder. I would recommend this treatment to others. There is no discomfort just a form of a relaxing massage.
