I tune up your body, mind and soul from instrument specific issues
15 E Kirby
With over two decades of experience, I have a vast understanding of balancing of the body with Massage and Functional Medicine.
I have toured with musicals, bands and work with touring bands and local musicians from classical to rock as a health consultant.
Allow me to visit you onsite or
pop over to my Detroit office.
Years of studies at prestigious institutions across Europe include rehabilitative therapy in Austria and Poland and cutting edge
Sports Therapy in the UK.
I now work with musical athletes.
Also in my toolbag is Functional Medicine , Nutrition, Cupping & GuaSha & Ayurveda.
Studio located in the Park Shelton.
I successfully work with legendary musicians to help tune up your body from instrument specific issues with massage, stretching, Ayurveda, Chinese and Functional Medicine.
I love my job!

Homeopathy and Functional Medicine allow me to balance your circadian rhythms by testing and correcting hormones. The ideal time to allow sleep is between 10p-6a, yet musicians tend to start their evenings at 10p, creating a different rhythm.
Supporting your body system with nutrition and Ayurvedic herbs will afford an optimal foundation.
Artificial lighting (late night stage lights) is often overlooked as disrupting neurotransmitters Serotonin and Dopamine.
Serotonin dysfunctions can result in mood swings, anxiety, depression, insomnia, irritability, social withdrawal, suicidal thought, restlessness and fatigue.
Dopamine controls our reward/pleasure centers in the brain. Dopamine allows us to make changes and have the motivation to stick to them. Low Dopamine leads to impaired mental performance, addictions, ADD, depression, poor concentration, severe disorganization, and inability to write.
Ayurvedic herbs, nutrition and Chinese Medicine are fantastic support tools to keep your body, mind and soul in top shape.
Physiotherapy (muscle therapy) is a dynamic technique that accelerates healing chronic pain. Look to us for neck arm shoulder and back pain, headache relief, carpal tunnel. We utilize Massage, Chinese Medicine and Alignment techniques to bring back balance.
Think of what we do as sports therapy for musicians.
We like to look at the body as a fine tuned instrument. Say your hip (knee, shoulder, elbow) are slightly out of tune (tight, impinged, painful) it will throw your posture off -not allowing your body to properly support itself to perform with ease.
We consider the individual and give tools to create balance for your body to support your art. Wether jamming for fun, regular gigs, touring- classical violin to rock n roll drummers we can help you stay symptom free of pain, numbness, and repetitive stress.
