KNEES AND HIPS MOBILITY AND REHAB

We've done calf raises with you before but this is for the bottom of your spine, your sacrum or SI joint. If you wake up with a stiff back, especially on one side it is often times an SI joint issue and by doing this exercise correctly we can strengthen and stabilize your hip muscles, hip flexors, and SI joint.

Make sure you stay in your pain free range only. Start with a small movement and work up to better range with continued reps. This movement is for rehab and maintenance and to prevent injury.

"Absolute 10 star experience! Not only have I had my needs listened to and addressed thoroughly, but even the therapist's touch is brilliant and intuitive. I am a therapist of 22 years but I have referred clients here for trickier cases needing a lot of technical knowledge. Most technically advanced MT I've been to!"

client reviews

"A few years ago after hiking Haleakala crater (13 miles), I commented that I thought it was strange that the only parts of my body that hurt were my hips. Paul immediately replied that this was likely due to weak glutes. I never would have put this together on my own, but after a few sessions with Paul and some serious effort at the gym, I have seen a huge improvement."

client reviews

I'm not the type of person who regularly gets a massage, more like almost never, so it took my shoulder practically not being able to move and thinking I might need surgery to motivate me to make an appointment with Paul, who was highly recommended by friends. After one session I gained mobility, had a better understanding of what was going on with my shoulder and hopeful that it would get better without surgery. It helped so much that I made regular appointments and tried different methods such as cupping, scraping, and taping.
