Hands on Physical Therapy is a physical therapy office specializing in Trigger Point Therapy. Trigger points develop in response to stress or injury in a muscle. They can be a primary source of pain, a component of pain, or can contribute to other myofascial dysfunctions. Trigger points usually refer pain to areas other than the point of injury, and can mimic other diagnoses. Beth Paris, PT and LMT, has been working with chronic pain and other injuries in her trigger point treatment since 1979.

The Relaxation Point
(607) 379-1639
By Appointment only

The relaxation point, commonly referred to as “The Relaxation Response”, is the moment when the body finds within itself an avenue or an ability to open up, unwind and let go. When this happens, pain cycles may begin to be interrupted, if even for a moment.

This moment, this happening, is the conscious or unconscious beginning of awareness to the self and the healing process.

In terms of massage as therapy, through Trigger Point Therapy, Kinesthetic Awareness through Movement, connective tissue work, general Swedish and other modalities, Joseph Karl Holmgren (LMT) seeks for this moment to begin within each client in hopes that finding the relaxation point may assist in their own personal healing, centeredness and self awareness for a better way of living.
