Sometimes reducing pain is as simple as putting the tissue back where it belongs.
From the 'Editor-in-Chief' at "Alpine World"
If you ski, sooner or later you are going to have a knee injury. When you do, you will be probably be told that surgery is the only alternative. Yet many knee surgeries are less than satisfactory and can actually make things worse. For example, the common practice of scraping away the lining of the knee joints, the meniscus, can sometimes result in too much play within the knee, leading to a degenerative condition in which the knee becomes increasingly unstable and requires further surgery.
Sincerely Taum, thank you for what you do.

Therapists who study and practice the Lauren Berry Method® use precise massage techniques that include soft tissue manipulation. Some of the goals are to relieve spasms, correct distortions, and release adhesions in the connective tissue, skeletal muscles, and the smooth muscle of organs. These techniques stimulate the body's natural inclination toward balance and ease in its structure and function.
For example, such corrections can quickly restore a knee to full, pain-free mechanical function or relieve back discomfort.
