After two months of trying to heal my extremely painful elbows on my own, i was diagnosised by my physician with tendonosis. I had stopped working out with a personal trainer. I also stopped my yoga practice that my husband and I had been doing regularly for many months. The doctor said it was a very lengthy healing process, because tendons have little blood flow, which is what is needed to heal. I tried several different things to heal my degenerating elbows including self physical therapy excerises, taping, bracing, acupunture and injections. None of those gave me the results i received with Astym therapy. I am still healing, but I am anxiously excited with my results. My left elbow is mostly healed and my right is getting there. I truly apprecitate Heidi, my therapist. She encourages continuing the treatment and it is working. Thank you.

After 12 years in the military my left elbow had enough, The pain was so bad i couldnt even pick up a coffee mug. I was extremely skeptical Astym treatment would be effective but gave it a try. Here i am 3 weeks into treatment and its amazing how much better i feel.

The pain in my elbow was not getting any better. Actually, I was beginning to experience limited use of my whole arm. Opening door knobs, cooking, drying my hair and writing were beginning to be affected because the inflammation caused by my tennis elbow was so bad. After the Astym therapy I began to regain use of my arm. Then we were able to discover exactly what was causing my problem, which was the way I slept on my arm. Astym therapy was exactly what was needed.

I was suffering from tennis elbow. It was limiting my day to day activities as well as decreasing my strength in my grip. This went on for about 4 months before seeking help from my physical therapist Julian Manrique at Focus Physical Therapy in Rancho Santa Margarita California. He recommended Astym treatment. I was so happy that within the first 3 treatments I began to feel pain free and started getting the strength back in my arm and hand.
I was able to lift heavy objects and go back to playing recreational tennis. I can’t begin to express how much happier I am day to day being pain free. I am a true believer in Astym treatment and have recommended it to family and friends.
