What is Manual Therapy / How Does it Work?
Your initial visit with Joanna includes a patient interview, mobility testing and the use of hands-on diagnostic techniques. Joanna reviews your personal health history and sets treatment goals. A full-body assessment is done to build your customized treatment plan. A localized problem may stem from a systemic dysfunction, and Joanna looks to the root of the problem to treat chronic and recurring conditions comprehensively rather than implementing disparate localized treatments as they occur. Fascial matrix work focuses on more than an acute instance of pain by re-aligning the body and its systems to achieve long-term pain resolution.
About your therapist
Joanna’s methodical approach focuses on the key areas of disturbance within the body to repair the fascial matrix. The fascial matrix is a complex system that extends throughout the body and is key to balance and movement. Joanna studied under Mary-Jane Porter, founder of Matrix Manual Therapy, and her knowledge and practice in this technique is bolstered by her training in traditional physiotherapy, yoga, and Pilates. Joanna enables the body to resolve injuries and chronic pain issues through a comprehensive understanding of the mind-body connection.
