Session Related Questions

A standard treatment session is approximately 60 mins.

All sessions are conducted without shoes. You are welcome to wear socks or go barefoot.
Your first visit will largely consist of client intake/history, evaluating the stability and mobility of the muscular system, and ultimately getting started.
The initial assessment also serves as a baseline from which to have objective measure to analyze your progress. We will discuss a plan for the work moving forward, a recommendation for frequency of sessions and a timeline toward maintenance and prevention.

Q: Can you treat a concussion or other head injuries?
The short answer is YES.
At CMS, we have put in a tremendous amount of time into treating the effects of head injuries (such as concussions) on the neuromuscular system.
A single blow to the head, or an accumulation of blows to the head, can cause big disruptions in the brain centers responsible for body orientation. The result is a movement system peppered with “blindspots”that remain until actively treated.
The effects of such head trauma can have a major impact on the muscle system for many many years. I can relate, having had head injuries as teenager, myself.
Q: Can MSA help with inflammatory muscle and joint conditions, like arthritis?
All joint movement is controlled and stabilized by muscles. Muscles stabilize joints and transfer forces through the body and into the environment. If those muscles lose the ability to contract at optimal levels, the integrity of the joint is compromised as joint stress increases due to the lack of muscle stability.
The result is the joints become irritated and inflamed. By restoring the contractile capabilities of the muscles back to optimal levels of responsiveness and strength, the health of the joint can improve as the inflammation has a chance to subside.
Arthritic conditions and joint instability can be helped or prevented when muscles are prepared to function properly. As long as the structures are intact, all that is needed is to create proper connections between the brain and the muscles.
Q: Is Muscle System Anchoring painful?
No, it is NOT painful. At most you may experience localized “muscle burn” like exercising a weak muscle, but on a much smaller scale in a smaller area. A fundamental principle of a micro progression is to be the least aggressive possible in order to get the most effective results possible in least amount of time possible.
Q: How often do I need to be treated?
With our process we start out by getting you over the initial hump in the first couple of weeks, seeing you twice per week. Then we take you to once per week, where most clients typically stay for some time. The ultimate goal is work everyone back to a maintenance dose/check-up every other week, or every 3 weeks.
