Today, we are more stressed-out than ever before. The stress of careers, deadlines, conflicts, and demands on our time and money, take a huge toll on our health and well-being.

Testimonials

  • "I suffered from Plantar Fasciitis and was using manual soft tissue release and a lacrosse ball to help break up the knots in my foot. These methods were painful and resulted in only short-term relief. About 3 months ago, I had an amniotic injection in my foot. The injection itself was a little uncomfortable, but the long-term relief has been more beneficial than prior treatments. I would recommend this injection to anyone that suffers from this condition."
