What is the Myokinesthetic System?

The Myokinesthetic System is a relatively new soft tissue treatment developed by Michael Uriarte D.C. that specifically treats the nervous system. It is geared to impact the nervous system in a specific way.  You don't have to get undressed and there are NO oils or creams, it only takes about 30-45 minutes and is customized to your specific complaint.   In fact, a treatment can be scheduled on your lunch hour or on your way home from work.

Cause and Compensation

When there is a injury to one side of the body the other side of the body must compensate to keep the body The brain must then tell other muscles to either contract or relax above and below this area so that we can stand as straight as possible with the least amount of pain.  For each cause, there is a compensation. A muscle on the left went short, so a muscle on the right side of our body lengthened to compensate. These two muscles tell the brain where they are relative to the one constant we all share: Gravity. The brain now tells other muscles where to go in relation to these muscles so we can stand as straight as possible, with the most range of motion in each joint possible and with the least amount of pain.  

Muscle Memory

With the MyoKinesthetic System, we are trying to find the cause and clear it so all the compensations will clear away, too. This system is not Chiropractic. At no time do we manipulate or "pop" bones. Instead, we go to work on the muscles. We stimulate each muscle along one nerve pathway. Deep, light, with cross-friction,  We can treat the origin, insertion, belly, or all three, all will work because we're looking for the nerve endings within the muscles to send a signal to the brain that says "there's a change happening here."

Once the brain receives this information and makes changes to it,  we then cleared the cause as well as the many compensatory adjustments by stimulating those muscles along the nerve. We've used "muscle memory" to our advantage.  We have now become  more balanced, with a greater range of motion, and a decreased  level of pain that lasts.

Unique and Revolutionary

There is simply the most unique and revolutionary system and there is nothing else like it. The MyoKinesthetic System is the result of more than 15 years of hands-on research and development.

The difference is in this treatment over others in: Which muscles do we treat together to clear the entire peripheral nervous system pathway. By focusing on the nervous system while working on the muscular system,

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch or about 4 kPa) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. 60 Min $80.00 or 90 min $ 120.00
