Release Works is founded on the belief that there is so much better than you have been told you can expect when it comes to your health. Michael spent years as a lone therapist and found himself growing frustrated at the inability to provide the care and attention clients needed and deserved, much less get the results he knew were possible. There just wasn’t time for one person to provide the nurture, support, and follow up required for each client to reach their potential while also running a business with all the tasks and paperwork required there. More than that, though, he found himself frustrated by the state of healthcare and what we accept for our bodies.
Essentially he saw that nearly every approach is coping and compensating for problems, instead of addressing them. Instead of finding and resolving the source of pain, you take pills when you get a headache. Or you undergo costly and dangerous surgeries when you get back problems because you’ve been sitting for years. You accept hunched and stooped, practically invalid, as normal. Often at relatively young ages. You blame genetics when it’s more likely how you have and haven’t taken care of your body.
At Release Works, we believe a body that is breaking down is usually a body that has lost its ability to move well. Pain is often simply the signal that tissues are stuck and glued, with your body coping and compensating for unresolved past issues. Dependence on pain medication just to get through the day is often because you don’t know there is a better way yet. Is it any wonder that you find your body beginning to get stiff and sore and break down, often far earlier or far worse than expected?
There is so much better than you have been led to believe is possible.
We know this because we have lived it, professionally and personally. We also know that if you are here on this page now it is likely because you are dealing with something you never thought would be a thing. And the best you are being told is that there is a medication you can try, or possibly surgery. Or worse, just learn to live with it. We know it is possible to reclaim a vibrant life and a body that moves well and feels good, without those things. Because we’ve been there. We’ve done it. And we’ve helped others do it. We know what it takes. And we can help you. It’s what we love to do and is our way of making the world better. How so? More people who are feeling good, and loving life makes everything better!
The people who work here have all had their own experiences of healing from back pain, neck pain, headaches, and fibromyalgia, just to name a few things. It is what makes us passionate about what we do. It is why we do what we do. When you work with us, you can know you are working with someone who has walked the walk, who knows what is going to get in your way and how to help you through it. Who knows you can do it, knows you can feel good again, and live life the way you want it.

What You Can Expect...
Have you ever asked yourself if there is something better than what the current healthcare system offers for regaining and maintaining your health and body? Have you considered that the type of solution to your pain matters?
When it comes to health, most people accept what they are told by healthcare practitioners. If you are told you need surgery or a medication, it must be true. If a doctor says you need a medication or surgery to feel better, it must be true. If you are told nothing can be done, it must be true. Sadly, recommendations might be based on a quick look at your chart, perhaps a quick look at you, with a prescription or referral to yet another doctor filled out on a computer to be picked up at the desk on your way out.
Do you want to continue to believe that? Or rely on that type of treatment to regain your health?
You might see a chiropractor or massage therapist because it is inexpensive, you get to lie on a table for a bit and not do anything while someone ‘fixes’ you, and you might feel better for a day or two. You might see a physical therapist, where you’re given some exercises or your joints are moved (forced) through a range of motion, and you hope the problem will go away.
But have you found it doesn’t really change anything?
Have you wondered what it would be like to be able to work and move and play in the way you know deep down you are meant to? Or used to be able to?
At Release Works, we help you do this.
How is your life currently affected when you accept what someone tells you about learning to live with pain? How are your interactions with others affected? Your job? Your enjoyment of life?
How would your life change if that pain and ache you are dealing with were resolved?
Are You Ready for That Change?
At Release Works, we know that everybody is different and needs to be treated individually. We don’t rely on cookie cutter approaches and standard treatment protocols, which at best only deliver average results. We don’t look at a chart. We look at you. We talk to you. We find out what you want from this so we can all work toward getting you back to the activities and lifestyle you love. That is what matters most here. The thing that is important to you is the thing that is important to us. You, getting back to the things you are currently missing out on. Not waiting for approval from an insurance company or spending time filing insurance forms, not measuring degrees of motion in your knee or shoulder in order to justify your treatment sessions, not waiting for referrals from a physician before we can even talk to you, not hoping you get the results you want in the number of sessions someone else dictates.
We know the best results come from individualized treatment and recovery plans where you are the center of all that happens. Whether it is one-on-one manual therapy sessions with a specialist, movement instruction and correction, self treatment instruction, or increasing body awareness, we want and need you to be a part of this process every step of the way. We never move forward with anything until you are ready. And we design a plan specific to you and what you need in order to regain a body that moves well and feels good to you.
Everyone who walks through our doors, or calls us on the phone, is treated as an individual. Not a number or a name and birthdate on an insurance plan. You are not your diagnosis, and you are not your injury or pain. You are an individual with unique needs and concerns. It gives us great pleasure to see YOU get better.
