Brian Cork, MS, LAc, has been working with everyone from professional rock climbers, skydivers, paragliders, surfers, ultra-runners, Iron Man athletes, cyclists and hard-working weekend warriors for over 15 years, helping people to get back in the saddle after injury, and optimize performance for projects or competitions.

Whether you are looking to heal from sports-related injuries & optimize performance, or if you're dealing with chronic long-term pain related to overwork and are simply hoping to get back to living your life, I can help.
I frequently work with these common Issues:
-Shoulder, upper back and neck pain
-Low back pain
-Recovery following orthopedic surgery
-Rotator cuff injuries
-Knee ligament injuries
TENSEGRITY: a fusion of 'tension' and 'integrity,' indicating that structural integrity comes from a balance of tensional forces. The body distributes force and tension through the body via the interconnected myofascial web.
Dial in your specific pattern and issues, and find relief from pain while developing more functional mobility.
-We make some deep structural shifts during each session, and then you assimilate the work into your own daily, proprioceptive reality.
-One of the goals is to shift the patterns leading to chronic pain and over-use injury, assessing the local complaints, then looking at the global-big-picture of how your whole body is moving.
-Often the structural cause of pain is not where you feel it, so we work with unbinding or activating myofascial and neurological connections in relation to your patterns.
-This work is INTEGRATIVE not 'alternative.'
We use scientific observation, research and technology to better understand and apply the traditional, therapeutic techniques and principles of Acupuncture in a modern world.
-This work is Evidence-Informed, based in direct feedback, and palpable results.
