Postural Restoration Specialist Courtney Stearn works with a client on balloon activities

If you are looking for a different type of physical therapy, then you are definitely in the right place!

Specializing in Postural Restoration, our approach is....well.....unique to say the least. We connect shoulders to hips, necks to knees, and even teeth to heels. Yup, you read that right. We are proud to be one of the only facilities in the state that offers this type of treatment!

We put your feet on walls and make you blow up balloons. We make you breathe. A LOT. But our pain-free activities help your body learn how to move in a better way.

Reflexology logo

There's a reason reflexology has been around for centuries! There is a strong belief that your feet are a representation of your body. Applying pressure to different parts of your feet stimulates other areas of your body. Along with experiencing a whole new level of relaxation, working on acupressure points that are restricted will help restore flow and circulation to those areas of the body. 

Choose between a 30, 45, or 60 minute reflexology session. Add on a foot soak and scrub for a little pampering!

What our clients have to say...

Jennifer C. 

The whole gang at Joint Effort are amazing! I was in so much pain when I first came to them, but they were relentless in finding my root cause and helping me get my health back! I’m a thousand times better than I was and forever grateful for all their hard work!
