Looking for an alternative therapy for pain? Aston-Patterning (AP) is a program of bodywork and movement training aimed at relieving muscle tension, pain, and speeding recovery from injury. AP can be used for back and neck pain, headache, and repetitive stress injuries. AP sessions are conducted with a trained therapist and include massage, movement training, fitness exercises, and advice on changes in the home and work environments.
