  • Dr. Tim Hintz, DPT, LMT

    Dr. Tim Hintz, DPT, LMT is focused on manual therapies to aid the body in its natural healing ability. He can address many physical ailments and help to restore physical function or reduce pain. He uses a variety of modalities including dry needling, soft tissue work, joint mobilization, cupping, stretching and exercise education.

    What is dry needling
    Dry needling is used to treat soft tissue pain related to inflammation, sensitized nerves, scar tissue formation, tissue adhesion, and deficiency of blood and lymphatic circulation. The practice of dry needling today is used to address both local and systemic dysfunctions.
    The process of dry needling involves inserting a filiform needle through the skin where it physically stretches and manipulates soft tissue. The procedure addresses soft tissue dysfunction through physical (stretching) and biochemical stimuli.

    The needles activate physiological mechanisms that promotes tissue healing. Needling facilitates the remodeling of the injured and inflamed soft tissues in and around the needling site.

    Dry needling itself does not treat any diseases, but rather restores tissue and systemic homeostasis. After needling many pathological conditions can be improved.

    Dry needling’s local benefits

    Local physical stress reduction (tissue tension)
    Normalizing local inflammation
    Replacement of injured tissues with fresh tissues of the same type
    Dry needling promotes the body’s self-healing process in localized soft tissues as well as benefiting the body by restoring systemic homeostasis.

    Restoring systemic homeostasis means reducing both physical and physiological stress. All body systems, including the immune, cardiovascular, endocrine, among others, can experience benefits through neurological and vascular inter-relationships.

    The process is also hypothesized to assist in the balance of the sympathetic nervous system.

    Jolene Druivenga, LMT
    Massage Therapist

    I have been dreaming of becoming a massage therapist for many years.

    Once I started my journey to obtain my license, I knew it was the perfect fit for me. Giving massage is just as therapeutic for me as it is for any receiver of massage. One of my brothers told me that I looked so peaceful and loving when I was giving one of our sisters a shoulder massage. This was one of many moments that I realized I had made the right choice to get my massage therapist’s license.

    Massage is a way to help your body relax, repair, and be healthy!
