“I had pulled my [Achilles] tendon… learning a try out dance at a dance convention. I went to an emergency room and got a boot, and then a week later I danced in a competition and made it worse. That’s when I got more X-rays and got physical therapy. I went from having a pulled tendon that hurt really bad to a ankle that feels way better and way stronger thanks to Astym treatment.”

Jayla Lowry, Achilles Tendon Injury


“I had a chronic hamstring pull for over 25 years. As a runner, it was extremely difficult to run with any regularity. I visited a sports medicine physician and he recommended Astym therapy. I had six treatments and my chronic hamstring problem disappeared. This was three years ago and I’ve had no recurrence of any hamstring problem.”

Henry, Hamstring Injury


“[Astym] has helped with resolving scar tissue, swelling, pain and range of motion. It has also improved the plantar fasciitis pain on my right heel. Last weekend I was finally able to do some gardening, planting flowers and attend a festival. I can walk much longer and no longer need the electric cart at the grocery store.”
