What Patients Are Saying

I went in because of a muscle knot in my shoulder the size of a grapefruit that was starting to sabotage my lifts at the gym. I called the day before and was able to schedule an appoint for deep tissue work with Joelle. She really knows her stuff and understands the body’s mechanics. I told her to also focus on my hip because I have a lot of hip and leg issues from sitting down at work all day. She discovered that my hip is tilted asymmetrically (something I have long suspected!) because my posture and sitting habits have resulted in shortening and tightness in those muscles and soft tissues. She did a lot of work to correct this, and while it was quite painful, I felt much better as a result (I told her to do whatever she had to do, after all). Just walking around, my hips and legs are more pain-free than they’ve been in months. She knocked out that knot in my shoulder, too. Although our appointment was for only an hour, she took extra time with me to show me stretches and talk anatomy with me so I can mitigate my hip and shoulder issues on my own. Nothing ever felt rushed at all.
