Hand pain from repetitive use: Astym therapy was the answer

My left hand lost most of it's gripping power from years of pulling fabric tight for upholstery.  Kim performed Astym therapy on my left forearm and it helped with the swelling and pain.

tendonitis recovery: astym therapy is working

I hurt one of my tendons early November 2013. By March of 2014 I had injured two more tendons resulting in inability to lift a simple glass of water! I knew something had yo be done. Finally was checked at my doctor. He thought with the amount of pain and swelling I had broken something. After x rays I was cleared with severe inflammation and told to use a brace and meds for six weeks. No improvement and I have been referred to a local hand therapist. I can definitely say after the first...

Thanks Astym therapy - it really helped after surgery

I was in a motor vehicle accident in October of 2013. I had my left femur shattered in over 30 pieces. I had surgical repair of the fracture. As a result I have a vertical scar running from the top of my left thigh to my left knee. The scar tissue was lumpy, tight, and sensitive to the touch. My therapist suggested we try Astym treatment to help the situation. After having had twelve sessions with the Astym therapy I am very happy to report the scar is not lumpy anymore and my scar is not...

Post-surgery: Astym therapy really helped in recovery

Trying to minimize my chances of inflammatory breast cancer I elected for removal of both breasts. I later had a tram-flap surgery where they cut across my tummy and manipulated my skin and muscles up to make new breasts. I had a horrific incision from side to side. Astym therapy helped heal me and I have now a flat scar; no bumps or roughness. I have mobility back in my tummy again! I can exercise and it has returned me back to my prior level of functioning. I would recommend Astym to others to...

Ankle Sprain: Astym treatment got me back to normal

I broke my foot and sprained my ankle during the same fall down a set of stairs. After being in a walking boot for 2 months, I couldn't move my ankle at all when I finally got it off. With therapy and the use of Astym treatment, I can now run, work, and live a normal life as I did pre-sprain.

Thankful for Astym therapy - it really helped my knee after arthroscopic surgery

Seeing my frustration the wonderful therapist that were helping decided to give Astym treatment a try.

Astym Treatment relieved my tight calves!

I have always had very tight calves. The past few years I have felt it getting worse whether I'm playing soccer, going on a run, or even standing at a bag boxing or kickboxing. Since Astym therapy, doing all these activities have become much easier. Running being the main thing I wanted to improve. I used to hit the mile mark and have to stop and stretch because my calves were so tight and painful. I can now run a mile without feeling that pain, it's awesome! It's nice to be able to enjoy...

The Astym Cure took care of my aching bicep

About a year and a half ago I fell and severely bruised my bicep muscle arm. I didn't think much of it at the time but as time progressed so did the stabbing and aching pain. The doctor took x-rays, etc showing nothing. I had two rounds of steroid shots over the course of a year and they did eliminate the stabbing pains. But, day after day, this deep aching continued. I took every over the counter pain relief pill I could find but it barely touched the pain. The doctor said there wasn't anything...
