YKNOT MOVE

For the past 15 years, I have helped clients with chronic pain and health issues, by applying and educating them on soft tissue therapy, human movement, and corrective exercise. In addition to holding an Illinois license in massage therapy, I have attended over 100 seminars and workshops certifying me in soft tissue therapy and the rehabilitation of the human body. I continue my studies under the world renowned physical therapists, Dr. Gary Gray and Dr. Dave Tiberio from the Gray Institute; Dr. Lois Laynee PHD, speaker and educator in oxygen wellness and the creator of the Laynee Restorative Breathing Method; and Dr. Emily Splichal, Pediatrist, Human Movement Specialist, and founder of the Evidence Based Fitness Academy (EBFA).

With a passion for human movement and health, I have continued working in a clinical setting with the full intention to help improve the lives of others. My constant desire to further my education of the human body has qualified me to assist my clients with chronic pain, rehabilitation, performance, and an overall improvement on their quality of life.

In addition the therapy I offer, I refer my clients to Lindstrom Chriopractic Clinic for Deep Tissue Laser Therapy. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy helps reduce pain and inflammation without side effects. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is also effectively used for acute and chronice conditions. Dr. Tom will customize a treatment plan based on your unquie condition.

Specializing in Human Movement

APPLIED FUNCTIONAL SCIENCE

Gray Institute® originated with Gary Gray. Gary applied his understanding of Human Biomechanics and launched a second-to-none institute known as Gray Institute®.

Gray Institute’s 40-week mentorship in Applied Functional Science has enabled me to transcend from a technique-based practitioner to a principle-based therapist.

In addition to a greater understanding of human biomechanics, the Gray Institute has enabled me to gain more enjoyment from my clinical encounters and become a more effective therapist, by believing in the whole uniqueness of each individual. Applied Functional Science is based on nature’s principles, which drive strategies to develop techniques that will help my clients.

LAYNEE RESTORATIVE BREATHING COACH

The Laynee Restorative Breathing Method, developed by Dr. Lois Laynee, is designed to generate a natural pure energy source to assist a healthier and more fulfilled life. Breathing is the very first functional movement we ever did as humans, and is essential to our metabolic system, our brain function, and our motor control system. When trying to coach someone to move better for flexibility, weight loss, strength, pre-habilitation or rehabilitation, proper breathing instruction is paramount to a successful outcome. The Laynee restorative breathing method consists of four basic movements that ignite natural breathing from within.

(FMS) FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREEN

The FMS provides a standardized approach to assessing fundamental movement, identifying limitations and asymmetries, and developing individualized corrective exercise programs. The philosophy behind the FMS is rooted in the concept that, in order to maximize performance, the whole body must be functioning properly. When the body is considered a chain of individual elements, it’s reasonable that a weak link weakens the entire chain. Ignoring a weak link increases the potential for disaster, and strengthening the wrong links will not improve the integrity of the chain. The FMS provides the means to identify and resolve any weak links that may be jeopardizing the body and it’s healthy motion.

CERTIFIED BAREFOOT TRAINING SPECIALIST

Established in 2012 by Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist Dr. Emily Splichal, the Evidence-based Fitness Academy uses barefoot training to improve human movement efficiency from the ground up, through barefoot science, physical fitness, neuromuscular conditioning, or performance enhancement. Dr. Emily Splichal has devoted her medical career teaching the power of activiating the nervous system and center of stabilization – from the ground up.

Evidence supports that what we train on influences how our foot activiates and communicates with the rest of our nervous system. Therefore, I barefoot train on a surface that is specifically targeted to the small nerve proprioceptors on the bottom of the feet. This type of training is important when we barefoot train or focus on movements that require rapid stabilization.

ARE YOU BAREFOOT STRONG?!?

"As the only contact point between the body and the ground, our feet play a critical role in the way in which our body controls and reacts to every upright movement." – Dr. Emily Splichal

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS)

Active Isolated Stretching and Strengthening (AIS) is one of the most efficient methods of stretching, by allowing the body to repair itself and prepare for daily activity. The AIS method works with the body’s natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.

CERTIFIED 'ROCKDOC' FOR ROCKTAPE

RockTape is a brand of kinesiology tape that assists in injury prevention, recovery, and performance. When properly applied, RockTape has a lifting effect between the many layers of skin, which results in lowering the inflammation of the injury, delaying muscle fatigue, and normalizing muscle tone.

FMT BLADE CERTIFICATION

FMT Blades introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). This therapy can be combined with (RockTape) kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a comprehensive approach to patient care.
