Synergistic Movement brings together two key factors to human movement and recovery. Mobility: the ability to move or be moved freely and easily. Stability: the property of the body to maintain or restore it's original condition when disturbed from a condition of equilibrium or steady motion. Both of these are crucial to getting you to move efficiently and pain-free to get you back to the things you love! The ability to have a session of Fascial Stretch and/or Lokte Method and immediately follow that up with Muscle Activation Technique will help an individual not only increase range of motion, but also maintain and build upon those gains.
Lin Hill is a soft tissue specialist with experience in the sports recovery, sports injury rehabilitation, and overall wellness. She has worked with people of all ages, sports and lifestyle backgrounds. Her focus is to get your body moving as efficiently and pain-free as possible by restoring both mobility and stability. The body responds to stress, trauma, overuse, injury, and inflammation by decreasing range of motion and muscles “shutting down” (muscle weakness) which results in improper body mechanics. This often presents itself as pain. Restoring proper body mechanics will increase the efficiency of the body and decrease pain.
I grew up in Denver, CO and received my Bachelors of Science at Oregon State University with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science with a minor in Psychology. At Oregon State, I was a Division I Rower for four years. I also worked at Denver Sports Recovery for four years, treating a wide variety of clients with Fascial Stretch Therapy and Lokte Method, as well as working as a Recovery Specialist in the recovery room.
Being an athlete all of my life and playing a different sport each season, I found myself in the high school training room on a regular basis. Seeing how my high school Athletic Trainer was able to help bring people back to their sport and witnessing firsthand the impact that had on their lives, I instantly knew sports medicine was the field for me. You start to find purpose, identity, and happiness in the things you do. When you lose the ability to do those things because of pain or immobility, it starts to weigh on you, both mentally and physically. My goal is to help get you back to the things you love - whether that’s back to a professional sport, weekend hiking adventures, running around with your kids, (or whatever you're passionate about), and give you the tools and knowledge to keep you there. I have worked with a wide range of people - anywhere from professional football and lacrosse players, ultra runners, ironman athletes, rock climbers, and cross fitters to weekend warriors, casual hikers, or that person who threw out their back while moving. You should never have to stop doing the activities you love or have to deal with pain on a day to day basis.

This therapy is a checks and balance system of your muscles. Through a series of range of motion assessments, muscle tests, palpations, and retests, MAT™ can help reduce pain and increase range of motion.
Cupping is an ancient form of therapy in which heated glass cups are applied to the body to create suction as a way of increasing blood flow, separating tissue layers, and breaking up adhesions formed in the tissue.
