Functional Movement Care

  • Do you experience pain during movement?

  • Does sitting for long periods or driving cause discomfort?

  • Have you been dealing with persistent hip, back, or shoulder pain that never truly goes away and keeps resurfacing?

Answer the questions below to be matched to your practitioner

At our practice, we specialize in alleviating pain and restoring your joy and ease of movement. Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) is a technique that focuses on neural movement skills.

Q: What is neural strength compared to building muscle strength?

A: You will not be able to build more muscle strength until your brain can effectively activate a muscle group in the correct sequence for a particular movement.

Neural strength refers to your brain's ability to engage the appropriate muscles in the correct order while performing a specific movement. When this is not functioning correctly this is often referred to as a compensation pattern. Compensation patterns can come from injury, trauma or poor movement habits.

Using the NKT protocol, we identify these patterns and work to reverse them, restoring them to their proper movement patterns. This process relieves movement pain and helps you regain strength and functionality. Additionally, completing short homework exercises, which only take about ten minutes each time, is a vital component of this method.

We are here to help you break free from pain and rediscover a pain-free, fluid range of motion

Reclaiming health through personalized nutrition

Melissa Gordon is a nutritionist who is passionate about empowering people to take control of their health by making simple (though not always easy) modifications in diet and lifestyle. Her practice is anchored in the belief that given the right conditions the human body has an innate ability to heal itself.

Thus, she sees her role as a facilitator in discovering root causes of symptoms, an educator, and a collaborative problem solver. Melissa discovered the power of nutrition and lifestyle when, through the guidance of an integrative medical practioner, she was able to put her own autoimmune disease into remission.

This profound experience sparked in her a desire to understand the science behind her healing so that she might be able to help others with similar struggles. She holds a Master of Science degree in Integrative and Functional Nutrition. On a personal note, she is a self-proclaimed foodie and lover of all things food-related.

When not cooking or searching for new, quick and easy, healthy, and delicious recipes, she enjoys the meditative practice of yoga, curling up with a good book, spending /me out in nature, or taking her dog, Daisy, for long walks.

Are you tired of living with chronic pain? Look no further than my expertise in yoga and human movement development. With over 23 years of experience in the yoga practice and the addition to training with brilliant movement specialists such as David Weinstock (Neurokinetic Therapy) and Kathy Dooley (ID Assessment) , I have helped countless individuals overcome uncomfortable or painful movement patterns that they once believed was just an inevitable road to being in a human body! Let me help you regain your strength, flexibility, and become a joyful mover again!

"As a retired professional dancer, I thought I knew my body pretty well. Then I hit middle age, perimenopause, and was in a car accident that left me doing minimal exercise for months.

I was fortunate to be introduced to NeuroKinetic Therapy. By working privately with Claire, I was opened to a whole new world of body awareness that was not only fascinating but profoundly helpful to my recovery. I was learning about motor control and how past injuries have deeply effected how my body was moving, how to change and retrain my body/brain connection so I could use my body in the way it was meant to while strengthening my deepest core muscles. In the weeks of working through the teacher training, taking classes at Rising Lotus and being able to work on NKT with Claire I’ve not only gained a deeper understanding of my body, I’m stronger, healthier and feel like I have a clear path for my recovery and a safe place in which to do it. I’m so deeply grateful that Claire convinced me to persevere. Through her kindness, vast knowledge and incredible sense of humor, I am forever changed for the better.

Thank you Claire and the wonderful teachers at Rising Lotus!"
