I’ve been treating and resolving the injuries, aches and pains of Toronto’s athletic community for the last 10 years.
I’ve helped hundreds of Torontonians aim towards life-time personal bests, dominate at their sport, without sacrificing their long term health and wellness.

The trying everything I could find on the internet and social media
The costly and time-wasting treatments
The lack of results and loss of hope
I wanted to throw in the towel and stop my goals of competing at a high level in Weightlifting and Soccer

4 Types of Massage Therapy Toronto Treatments that we utilize for torn Rotator Cuffs at The Holistic Move

Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex (PDTR)

PDTR is a specialized technique that focuses on stimulating specific proprioceptive receptors to restore proper proprioception and re-optimize muscle function. By activating deep tendon reflexes, this technique helps re-establish the communication between the nervous system and muscles, reducing instability, reducing shoulder pain, and aiding in the recovery of typical overuse injuries such as Rotator Cuff Tear.

Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT)

NKT is a cutting-edge technique that identifies and corrects faulty movement patterns by addressing muscle imbalances and dysfunctional movement compensations. By using manual muscle testing and precise corrective exercises, NKT Toronto aims to reprogram the neuro-muscular system, promoting shoulder pain relief, improved stability, and enhanced athletic performance for individuals with Rotator Cuff Tear.

Active Release Technique (ART)

 My Active Release Technique (ART) is a dynamic and hands-on approach that combines movement and precise pressure to treat Rotator Cuff Tear. By targeting soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue, ART breaks down barriers to healing, improves shoulder blade range of motion, and accelerates recovery.
