TREATMENTS

Functional training, weekend hikes, recreational and competitive sports, crafting, and even being comfortable at work require living pain-free. Our bespoke treatment incorporates multiple soft tissue modalities to bring you fast, long lasting relief. Many patients can expect significant results in as few as two sessions.

No. 1
ACUTE/CHRONIC

Specific injuries require specific treatment. Comprehensive assessment, sophisticated manual therapy, and an adaptable recovery plan tailored to your needs will get you on the fast track to reducing or eliminating pain.

No. 2

Performance

Fine tune your training with increased range of movement and shave critical seconds off of your workout, race, and routine times. Access challenging mechanical positions with ease and spend less energy on reaching depth, extension, rotation, or height in your competitive environment.

No. 3

PREVENTATIVE

Just like your car or truck, bodies in motion require ongoing, preventative maintenance for optimal functioning. Regular tune ups help keep your tissues gliding the way they should.

“Ultimately, success or failure in human movement hinges on our tissues’ ability to be good neighbors to each other. If there’s too much tension, not enough space, disorganized fiber orientation, or codependency, the surrounding structures will cease to operate sufficiently.”

WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING

If you have pain, go see Gina. Just go. I have had two major pain problems in the past year: a recurrence of patellar tendonitis and a back/rib injury. The tendonitis was so bad, I had to take the stairs one at a time. I was limping. I couldn't get around work. The back and rib pain had reached such a level that I was desperate. I couldn't sleep or even sit comfortably. For both issues, Gina did for me in two sessions what six weeks of physical therapy, several doctors visits and pain pills couldn't. She solved my issues. She took away the pain. When she was done with me it was like I never had any pain at all. I am an ART believer through and through and will always see Gina first for any pain. I recommend her highly. Higher than highly. Go see her now, you can thank me later.

– Christine F.

Thanks to my friend Gina for saving my body from certain peril again today. She can make the pain from the abuse my body has been put through go away in mere minutes. Getting regular massage and ART treatments has been the best decision for myself and my golf career I have made. I learn about some new injury or cause of pain each time I go. Slowly we are making progress in getting me realigned and put back together.

– Matt Z.

I have been dealing with sciatic pain since January. I have foam rolled, massaged, stretched and even punched the surrounding muscles. I've told my doctor, seen an awesome chiropractor, and finally had soft tissue manipulation by Gina Tacconi-Moore. I can't say exactly what she did but basically she dug into that surrounding muscle (piriformis) using her elbow and thumbs. After 25 minutes of adjusting and breaking up fascia I jumped off her table to zero sciatic pain. If you are dealing with mobility problems, sciatic pain, neck issues, or anything along those lines...consider Gina to get you fixed up. Thanks Gina.

– Mark L.

Just came back from a noon appointment with Gina. I couldn't tie my shoes this morning due to my lower back hurting so bad, but after seeing her I feel great! Thank you so much!

Greg B.

Gina is the best! This place is epic. Had shin splints and a hip issue for what seems like forever. Now they are gone! Can't say enough good things about Gina and ART!

– Abby C.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUEs (ART)?

ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Many overuse conditions can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. 

How do overuse conditions occur?

Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

Acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc)
Accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).

Each of these factors can cause the body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped, you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.

Does soft tissue treatment hurt?

Most patients describe the sensation as a “productive discomfort” – meaning that the tissue is being moved and manipulated in a way it needs to be. Your appointment will be structured to work within the confines of your tolerance, and your feedback will be solicited during the session to ensure the most comfortable experience possible.

How many sessions will I need to feel improvement?

This is a case-by-case basis, but for chronic injuries or insults to soft tissue, many patients can expect to see an 80% or better improvement over an average of 4 sessions. For acute problems, it’s common to see the same improvement in just 1 or 2 sessions.

I have a diagnosis and scheduled for surgery. Can I still come in?

If you are scheduled for surgery, you’ll need to bring your diagnostic paperwork and accompanying images (where applicable) and a doctor’s note clearing you for treatment at The Treatment Room. Discuss the reason for your visit with your doctor – if you’re seeking pain management, a conservative alternative to a surgical procedure, or corrective exercises prior to your operation. As part of your allied healthcare network, The Treatment Room can work with your physician to support your preparation and recovery process.

How is manual therapy different from chiropractic?

Chiropractors can diagnose, order images, and perform skeletal adjustments. Some doctors specialize in soft tissue manipulation and manual therapy; therefore a visit to their offices may feel very much like a visit to The Treatment Room. Professional focus depends on the office, how the chiropractors are trained, and their specific interest. 

How is manual therapy different from massage?

Manual therapy is focused, condition-specific work performed in a clinical environment with the express purpose of achieving measurable improvement for a patient problem. Standard massage therapy tends to be a general, holistic practice intent on activating the parasympathetic nervous system (“rest and digest”). Massage is excellent for recovery, encouraging circulation and lymphatic flow, mitigating anxiety and stress, and promoting well-being; it should be sought as part of a complete wellness program.

Is The Treatment Room mobile?

Yes! The Treatment Room can come to your home in the event of extremely limited mobilty, surgical recovery, and more. An additional fee is associated, please call for availability.
