Now Offering Soft Tissue Release, Graston Technique, and Kinesio-Taping

Morgan -- Registered Kinesiologist at Cornell Performance Academy

Morgan is a Registered Kinesiologist with certifications in Soft Tissue Release, Graston Technique, and Kinesio-Taping. 

Soft tissue release (STR) is a hands-on manual therapy technique to assess and treat the body’s tissue. The body’s soft tissues (muscle, tendon, fascia and ligaments) are prone to acute and chronic injury, which leads to swelling, adhesions and fibrosis (scarring) of the tissue. This type of injury often results in pain, loss of mobility, strength, and function. Soft tissue release targets specific areas of tension within an individual muscle to remove scar tissue and adhesion to relieve muscular stress and pain.

Graston Technique uses unique handheld instruments with a specialized form of massage designed to help the practitioner identify areas of restriction and break up the scar tissue. 

Kinesio-Taping is a treatment option if you’ve had an injury or illness that leads to mobility and motor function problems. It involves placing strips of special tape on your body in specific directions to help support your joints, like a knee, ankle, or wrist, as well as muscles and tendons.

It can help facilitate muscle function, stabilize joints, or inhibit muscles from contracting improperly. It can also help decrease pain, swelling, and muscle spasms.

Morgan has worked with various fitness enthusiasts, athletes, and sports teams. She offers evidence-based training programs and manual and instrument-assisted soft tissue release treatments to help clients achieve their full range of movement, fitness, or sport. 

Morgan will be offering sessions as follows:

  • Soft Tissue Release (one hour) $115
  • Soft Tissue Release + Personal Training (one hour) $95
  • Graston Technique (one hour) $115
  • Graston Technique + Personal Training (one hour) $95

We can confirm that the following insurance companies offer kinesiology services in their plans, or it can be added to the plans: 



Canada Life

However, we encourage you to check with your employer to see if your plan opted to include it; if not, it can be added in.  

The other option is that many plans now include a healthcare or wellness spending account. It’s extra money that can apply towards different healthcare needs and can be used to cover kinesiology services.
