What Makes Us So Effective in Eliminating Pain Quickly?

We use a variety of cutting edge, hands-on techniques that literally "turn off" painful trigger points in seconds, without causing you any pain. The techniques are so gentle that they are perfect for anyone no matter how much pain they are in. Patients often say "Wow, it felt like you weren't even doing anything and yet my pain is gone!" These techniques are currently only performed by Michele Gust, PT.



Pain Neutralization TechniqueiStock_000009438264Largemassage (PNT): An Unprecedented Revolution in Pain Management

This technique involves gentle tissue manipulation to "turn off" the nerve-based reflexes that perpetuate trigger points and muscle pain, and is particularly effective in treating and eliminating chronic pain.


"What you did in just one session, 5 other PT's and doctors couldn't do at all and even after months and years of therapy. I am in awe!" -Sandy

"It felt like you weren't doing much because you weren't inflicting any pain on me, yet today I feel like a whole new person! Finally, my back isn't killing me. I can get in and out of the car with ease and it doesn't feel like its going to snap anymore." -Michael

"It's like you erased the pain. It's just gone. I guess I am cancelling the surgery! You are a miracle worker Michele!" -Rita


graphic_lymphaticdrainageStrain-Counterstrain Technique (SCS): Originally Called Positional Release
This technique uses passive body positioning of spasmed muscles and dysfunctional joints toward positions of comfort or tissue ease that shortens the tissue, allowing it to neurologically release and return back to normal resting tone. This allows the joints influenced by the now relaxed muscle to function optimally, increasing its range of motion and easing muscle pain. This technique can be done on any muscle, including fascia around the organs which is often the underlying source of back pain. Cranial techniques are often used as well to clear out up to 40 trigger points in a matter of minutes. This technique is a major breakthrough in eliminating pain, even chronic pain.


"That was magic. The pain that I had for years in my neck and upper back is gone. You just took it away!"- Maria

"Every year I tell my husband I want a new neck for Christmas. Now, thanks to you, I finally got it!" -Karen

"My ITB has been a problem my whole life because of my posture. I never thought it would be fixed in just 2 sessions. Where have you been all my life, Michele!" -Ileana


graphic_cranialMyokinesthetic System: This groundbreaking helps to rebalance the nervous system, reset the body, and relieve the root cause of pain. A typical session will include a thorough postural assessment to have a clear picture about the main nerve root that is wreaking the most havoc on the body. You will then be asked details about your pain so the therapist can determine which specific treatment will get to the root cause of the problem. The treatment combines passive and active movement with light to moderate touch on key muscles along a specific nerve pathway. The result is quick elimination of nerve symptoms such as tingling, numbness, burning, and even weakness and freedom from acute pain. **Best results seen when there are 5 treatments done within 10 days.


"I haven't had any burning, numbness, or tingling since we began this treatment. And look how much more movement I have!" Jeff

"Whatever you did last time, it took my pain down from a 9 out of 10 to a 2 and I can do things i couldn't do before. And my Frozen Shoulder is no longer frozen. The 5 sessions we had were amazing! You helped my back and my shoulder! I can't wait to start Pilates classes upstairs now. Thank you." Jorge

"My son has not had even one headache since the 4th session. He has gotten of the pain meds and he is back to school. A sincere thank you Michele." -Barbara and Noel




Visceral Manipulation

This is a hands-on, gentle technique to help release gastrointestinal symptoms, such as Hiatal Hernia, Acid Reflux, Constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Urinary Incontinence, gas/bloating, reproductive issues, and even Sciatica which can come from specific points on the bladder as well as the intestines.  


"My acid reflux was gone after the first session with you Michele. Bye bye Tums!" -Lana

"I can't believe there was a correlation between my having to urinate constantly and my Sciatica. I'm a doctor and I am so surprised. You impress me, Michele. Not only did you get rid of my back and leg pain but I don't have to pee constantly anymore. Wow!" -Dr. C

"I felt like I had a piece of plastic stuck in my throat somewhere. The doctor thought I was crazy but at least she sent me to you. She told me you work miracles. She was right! After the second session you figured it out and instantly it was better! It hasn't come back. You fixed me. Thank you!" -Elena
