What is Hanson Muscle Therapy – Santa Cruz CORE

unnamedClients and patients achieve results they never thought possible! Hanson Muscle Therapy (HMT) is a unique form of muscle testing and manual therapy that has provided pain relief to over 20,000 patients since 1994. Created by Tobe Hanson HMT founder, Kinesiologist & Muscle Therapist, it’s a service that has been sought out by surgeons, trainers, massage therapists, physical therapists and Chiropractors to provide pain relief that may not otherwise be achieved. It is used in the rehabilitation of injuries as well as preventative care for athletes that include the San Jose Sharks (professional hockey team in NHL), Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB team), San Francisco 49ers, and Division 1 Stanford Athletes. unnamedHanson Muscle Therapy (HMT) is a revolutionary method of therapy that integrates feedback from postural evaluation, range of motion assessment, acupuncture meridian lines and specific muscle testing to pinpoint areas of myofascial tension. Through advanced muscle therapy, it identifies trigger/acupressure points for immediate relief of muscular pain, tension and dysfunction. Accumulation of tension can result in hypersensitive, myofascial reflex points, or more commonly referred to as acupressure points. When overloaded, these points can produce local or referred pain. With extensive knowledge, certified Hanson Muscle Therapists employ years of experience as well as certifications from Tobe Hanson, himself, to identify problem areas through range of motion assessments and postural evaluations. HMTIndividuals from throughout the country have started practicing HMT and have seen an incredible surge in their individual practices due to patient referrals as a product of the incredible results the practitioners are helping the clients to achieve. We are fortunate to have Dr Rhodes Walton, Chiropractor, Jaimi Ellison and Beau Jansen, Athletic Trainers, know and understand this technique. Santa Cruz CORE is home to these three practitioners and in the last few years of really truly employing this Therapy, their practice has bloomed. Dr Rhodes transformed his chiropractic practice from traditional chiropractic adjustments to a new method Sports ChiroTherapy that employs Hanson Muscle Therapy as the key modality “HMT speaks for itself. The results are incredible. Individuals come in with chronic pain that no one they have been to has seemed to be able to fix and in just a few sessions we get right to the point. Even in just one session my patients walk out feeling tremendously better and many of them pain free. It is an awesome tool.” About TORBJORN “TOBE” HANSON – Founder of HansOn Muscle Therapy Tobe has 28 years of clinical experience in manual therapy for pain or dysfunction in muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
