"End of and Era"
Our mission at the
Pacific Northwest Soft Tissue Clinic was to advance both
the art and science of soft tissue manual therapy to address
unique issues that limit function, performance or cause
pain or dysfunction in the human body. We believe we accomplished
that mission by researching, discovering, and developing
a completely new system that explains how the human body
compensates, universally winds up the fascial matrix in
a three dimensional vector space throughout all tissues
(neural, vascular, organs, muscuskeletal, and fascial).
We clinically researched methods of analyzing and reading
the tissues of the body that went beyond all existing methods
used by a variety of modalites in the medical and alternative
professions. We demonstrated that soft tissue manual therapy
requires addressing all tissues of the body and not treatment
can ignore or artifically divide systems of the body into
components. The soft tissue matrix is one, complete, integrated,
indivisible, connected system. It is self-aware, universally
comminicating with all parts and tissues of the human body,
compensating as necessary to protect the body from further
injury or trauma. The three dimensional vectors that make
up the matrix penetrate and connect to all others, ignoring
all conventional divisions as perceived by the medical system
and community today. It is self-adjusting.
Our new understanding
of the integration of the whole three dimendional matrix
system allowed us to accomplish healing and reconfiguration
of the human body that have not been previously available
in any other modality of treatment that exists out there
at present. Our research and discoveries also debunked most,
if not all, of the existing theories and practices of soft
tissue manual therapy, structural integration, and fascial
treatment, including the most widely accepted and widely
practiced theories and modalities. Our
practice uniquely integrated objective methods of working
and manipulating the lines of restrictions throughout the
body, from head to toe. Each tissue has its own unique signature,
texture, characteristics, and means of release.
We are proud to have
advanced soft tissue treatment and analysis to this level
and we are sad to have to close our practice at this time.
My health does not allow me to continue to offer treatment
to our patients any longer.
Because our methods
and discoveries have advanced the science and treatment
of soft tissue beyond existing methods available, we have
been approached by our clients and other practitioners to
document, train, and teach this new science. Unfortunately,
at this time, my health does not allow me to provide that
opportunity to others at this time. This may change in the
future. It is unknown at this time.
We profusely thank
all of our clients that we have treated in over a decade
of research and advancement, for the opportunity to work
on their bodies, share their pain and healing, and enter
that sacred space that practitioner and patient share. It
has been one of the most fulfilling aspects of my life.
My wife and partner in this venture shares the same with
each of you. We leave this practice with both joy and sadness.
It has been a great journey.
