Conscious Physical Therapy

Are You Tired of Living in Pain?

Southwest Physical Therapy has great success in treating problems that have been unresponsive to previous therapies, surgeries and medications. Clients often come to us with intense pain (back, hip, shoulder, knee etc.) that interferes with mobility, work, and sleep.  The MRI and X-ray results came back negative and the doctors say they didn’t see anything. You can’t make sense out of it because you still feel the pain.

Mind/Body Awareness

Your mysterious pain is your body trying to tell you that something else is going on. Your body is a network of intelligent connective tissue or fascia, that records all physical, mental and emotional trauma.

At Southwest we discover other factors that are contributing to your physical pain: unconscious emotions, fears, anxieties, stress and tensions, that have been trapped and buried in your fascia and building up in your body for years.

During a series of treatments, you connect with these seemingly unrelated restrictions that lie hidden in different parts of your body.  As you feel and understand them, you release  the pain and a transformation occurs… as the restrictions are released, you become more present in your life and are more likely to make conscious life choices that will  benefit you.

Your life is the sum of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself. -Robert F. Bennett
