When inserted into the skin, acupuncture needles stimulate an inflammatory response to promote local healing in deep tissue structures that can’t be reached by other superficial techniques. The application of electrical stimulation to the needle activates the surrounding nerve fibers, immediately influencing sensation and muscle contractility to improve pain and athletic performance.
Traditional joint mobilizations involve a high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust applied to a restricted joint (spine and extremities) in order to restore range of motion and stimulate the nervous system. When performed in combination with other soft tissues techniques that restore flexibility and muscle activation, the benefits on pain and joint mobility can be expressed long term.
Glass or silicone cups are placed on the skin to create suction to decompress muscle tissues by lifting the superficial layer of fascia. This causes the tissue beneath the cup to swell, leading to increase in blood flow to the affected area. Enhanced blood flow under the cups draws inflammation and toxins away from the nearby tissues and organs towards the surface for elimination.
Fascial Stretch Therapy™
Fascial Stretch Therapy™ is a pain-free, table-based assisted stretching technique focusing on the fascial lines that connect throughout your entire body and wrap around muscle, nerves, joint capsules and organs. Mild pressure is applied while moving the joint along with the surrounding tissues to help the fascia and muscles relax at the same time for greater range of motion. It works by moving the joint along with the surrounding tissues to help the fascia and muscles relax at the same time
Micro-Conditioning is a gentle soft tissue technique designed to treat between the layers of muscle and fascia to create pliability between these connective tissues where nerve fibers are traveling. These nerves provide information going to and from the central nervous system for processing pain, knowing where your limb and body is in space, and even strength.
Instrument assisted manual soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) techniques heal the body by intentionally producing micro-traumas in specific regions to bring heat to the area. Certain techniques focus more on the breaking up of adhesions and healing through the start of the inflammatory process; while others focus on bringing toxins and excessive heat to the body’s surface to be released.

Ion's RMT Sam is the best RMT I have found. If you are an athlete, or just someone who wants their body to move and feel better, there is nowhere else to go! As a personal trainer and gym owner, I recommend Sam to everyone. Dr. Roshen ND is also highly recommended. I'm also working with Dr. Roshen for just a couple sessions, he didn't load me up on supplements as other naturopathic Drs do, but helped me refine my current habits and nutrition to lose weight and perform stronger in the gym. I also highly recommend Dr. Roshen to my clients and anyone who wants to raise their performance or just feel better throughout the day!
I have been going to Cole for a few months now. I can say with certainty that he is the best chiropractor that I have ever had. The acupuncture that they do along with the adjustment have improved my pain and prepped and repaired my body from the gym. I am personally very scared of needles and Cole soothed my fears so well that my most recent appointment I had more needles in my back than I ever would have thought I’d be okay with. Cole is also a great conversationalist and is very knowledgeable in his field. Any questions you have, he has the answer. I could not recommend Cole more.

I have seen several chiropractors in the past with limited success in treating my chronic issues and will gladly inform everyone that Dr. Baron is a top notch, very modern chiropractor that does not rely on the stereotypical "cracking" treatment. I have suffered from several herniations as well as chronic shoulder pain and Dr. Baron has successfully aided in eliminating my shoulder pain (to be able to workout in full capacity again) and dramatically minimized my lower back pain. His approach is not to quickly crack and kick out his patients but to properly assess and spend time fully understanding their symptoms.
For anyone that suffers from any sort of physical prolonged pain, I would highly encourage you to see Dr. Baron asap!

I have been living with chronic elbow pain for the past 3 years. To the point where the pain just felt normal.
After 3 appointments with Ben, and 2 with Sam, I am learning what it's like to live pain free, again.
As a therapist myself, I would highly recommend anyone with an ailment to try seeing the staff at iON Health + Performance. You won't regret it!

I have been a client with iON for over a year now (seeing Ben for Chiropractic services - Thanks Ben!!!), most recently I started with Roshen the Naturopath on staff. We have been working together for 3-4 months now on some digestive concerns and weight loss. I was reserved about starting with a naturopath, but it was my best decision in 2021 so far! Roshen is easy to talk to, realistic with goals and great at troubleshooting any food concerns. I went in with 2 specific goals, but have really seen a change in my overall health as well as my performance in the gym since working with Roshen. I highly recommend both Roshen and iON Health + Performance!
