We all have "trigger points"- highly irritable spots in a muscle that contribute critically to pain. A trigger point lies dormant in a muscle until the physical and emotional climate is right, then it fires up, causing pain in the body.
Much like a trigger point massage, the Bonnie Prudden® therapist applies pressure to the trigger points in the muscle for several seconds. Fingers, elbow, knuckles and sometimes "Bodos" (wooden dowels) are used to release the trigger point.
Myotherapy literally translates to muscle therapy. Once the trigger points are released, your therapist will use passive stretches to teach the muscle to remain loose and lengthened. You will also be given custom tailored stretches and exercises to help improve coordination, strength, and posture.
Common conditions that respond to Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy®: Sciatica, neck pain, back pain, headaches, Plantar Fasciitis, Arthritis, Patelleofemoral Pain, Whiplash and Torticollis, Carpel Tunnel, Tennis Elbow/Golfers Elbow, Rotator Cuff strains, as well as the pain and discomfort of cyclical disease processes such as Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, and Muscular Dystrophy.

Our goal is to provide quality care to all our patients in a timely manner. No-shows, late arrivals, and cancellations inconvenience not only the provider but our other patients as well. Please be aware of our policy regarding missed appointments.
When you book your appointment, you are holding space on our calendar that is no longer available to other patients. In order to be respectful of your fellow patients, please call Jennifer Luma as soon as you know you will not be able to make your appointment. If cancellation is necessary, we require that you call at least 12 hours in advance. Appointments are in high demand, and your advanced notice will allow another patient access to that appointment time.
A cancellation is considered late when the appointment is cancelled less than 12 hours before the appointed time. A no-show is when a patient misses an appointment without cancelling. In either case, we will charge the patient a $30 missed appointment fee.
For new patients’ first appointments, a no show or late cancellation will result in a full charge of the new patient fee.
