Soft Tissue Therapy

Full-Body Wellness Driven By Innovation

Using a combination of state-of-the-art tools and targeted massages, Peak Chiropractic’s approach to soft tissue therapy provides relief in the short term and improved quality of life in the long term. Like all aspects of our treatment approach, your soft tissue therapy strategy is specific to you, what’s causing you pain, and your goals for the future.


What It Is:
Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization is the use of specific tools in a low-friction manner to amplify the effectiveness of STM treatment.

How it Helps:
IASTM triggers an inflammatory healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and pain-free healing. It decreases rehab & recovery time and can effectively address chronic pain.

Myofascial Release

What It Is:
A targeted massage therapy technique designed to fascial adhesions and relax muscle groups.

How it Helps:
By releasing contracted muscle groups, pain is alleviated, flexibility is restored, and blood & lymphatic circulation is improved.

What Peak Patients Have To Say:

“My wife will be the first you tell you, I’m a completely different person since my treatment at Peak. I can’t tell you what Dr. Marse & his team mean to me. They gave me a new lease on life.”

“Dr. Marse really impressed me by how in-depth my consultation was. He really put together a great treatment plan for my pain. And I loved working with him and Logan on my recovery. My body has changed significantly during my treatment. I am very happy.”

— Debra P.

“For more than 5 years, I’ve found the most incredible help and relief from back, hip, neck, and sinus pain with treatment at Peak Chiropractic! Dr Andre Marse is a miracle worker. I wasn’t necessarily skeptical at first, but I didn’t understand how well this kind of treatment can cure problems I’d had for ages. It was a relevation — I can’t overstate that! The whole experience at this clinic is so positive, so upbeat, so therapeutic. I love going first thing in the morning to get my day going right.”

— June N.

“Dr. Marse has done an amazing job not only treating my lower back but also explaining to me how to avoid future pain, and how to best manage discomfort in-between visits. Both Logan and Becca were knowledgeable and professional in explaining my treatment options, as well as cheerfully greeting me each visit. Thankful to have found Peak Chiropractic and always looking forward to my next adjustment!”

Massage Therapy

What It Is:
Deep-tissue massage techniques designed to work in harmony with the larger pain-targeted treatment plan customized to your needs.

How it Helps:
These targeted massages address muscle tightness and joint pain, providing immediate relief and supporting the long-term success of the Peak Chiropractic treatment plan.

Fascial Distortion Model

What It Is:
FDM is a manner of approaching soft tissue pain that balances real patient input with medical tests to arrive at a hyper-specific treatment plan.

How it Helps:
This model allows us to keep the pain you’re experiencing top of mind and ensures that we achieve the best possible outcomes that not only provide relief but restore function long-term.

Dry Needling

What It Is:
This therapy involves the insertion of tiny needles into pressure points of knotted muscle. These needles don’t inject anything into the body, and this approach is visually similar to acupuncture.

How it Helps:
Dry needling triggers tight, knotted muscles to release and/or stop spasming, which provides relief from pain, greater flexibility, and improved range of motion.
