Alyssa is an outstanding physical therapist! I gave up on PT from having no results two different times in my life. I went to Alyssa when my low back pain increased from prolonged sitting as a college student and having to drive long hours for a program I got into 1.5hrs away. I knew several of her clients and personally witness their significant improvements. Her exam was quick and efficient getting to the root of the problem. She dry needled two areas and in about 5 mins I literally felt like butter instead of cement! Almost a year later and I still have the mobility without that increased pain returning. When the pain creeps up on me I follow the exercises she gave me and it works. I live on Kenai and she's in Wasilla but the trip is worth the results for when I need to see her!
Atlasprofilax- I also tried her Atlasprofilax treatment for me and my family because I believe in the benefits of proper spinal alignment. I never had much problems with my neck to begin with but immediately after my entire body felt unrestricted as if layers of tension released. I moved better and felt better. Six months later I had to get xrays for an acute injury and the xray tech couldn't believe how my atlas was perfectly in line! When they have you open your mouth to get the upper c-spine she said they always do that section at 3 different angles to get the entirety of it but I only had to do the one. Worth it! I am confident that this will prevent future problems and am so glad we did this!

“My experience with the Atlasprofilax has been enlightening. As a therapist, I was curious about the technique and the physical response. The technique itself was, at times, intense. The biology behind getting deep enough to effect change requires pressure that gets your attention. Afterwards, I was globally sore for about 24 hours and then sore for an additional day to the touch.
After the soreness faded what I noticed first was increased range of motion in my neck. Secondarily, the crepitus (grinding noise/sensation) I often feel when turning my head in day to day life has largely disappeared. In addition, a long standing injury I have had to my SI joint has been calmed down substantially. For me, this means that the low level ache that is constantly in that joint has been reduced in intensity and has tolerated increased activity well. I can see no other changes in my life that would result in these improvements and believe that they are the result of the Atlasprofilax treatment.

Hi, I'm Dr. Christopher Allen, D.C.
I am writing to report my recent experience with Alyssa Wu, P.T. regarding her expertise with the adjustment of the Atlas, or 1st Cervical Vertebra in the neck.
I came to her symptom free as a preventative measure in April, 2018. I'm 66 years old and was knocked unconscious as a 12 year old playing pick-up football with no protective head gear or padding.
Although I am symptom free, I was unaware of the stiffness that was present in my neck. I noticed it with Alyssa's treatment however, and was quite shocked to notice a very real improvement in the stiffness and range of motion that resulted from her initial session. Upon one follow up session with her, my neck was totally free of any stiffness and full range of motion was restored.
If you have been suffering with neck pain and stiffness in general, and body aches and pains in particular, I highly
recommend that Alyssa Wu is a highly trained professional who can give you the relief you deserve in short order.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any more feedback. Many thanks to Alyssa Wu, P.T. !!!

“After being in a pretty bad automobile accident many years ago, and having experienced a significant increase neck pain over the past 3-4 years, I tried chiropractic, physical therapy, and more recently facet joint cortisone shots – none of which worked. I recently went to see Alyssa for Atlasprofilax and after her treatment, I am pretty much pain free! Thank you Alyssa!”

"As a PT, I was at first skeptical of Atlasprofilax treatment or anything that claims to be a 'one time, quick fix.' I wasn't even sure if I was going to notice any difference from the treatment because I don't have any chronic pain. However, after the treatment my cervical ROM was instantly improved, my right upper trap spasms ceased, and I could feel my posture had improved with decrease in effort and strain. I have been pain free in my right upper trap ever since and would definitely recommend Atlasprofilax to my patients! Alyssa was very knowledgeable and able to answer all of my questions regarding the treatment, thanks Alyssa!"

"Atlasprofilax is amazing! It taught me things about my body that I forgot, especially how my neck muscles will compensate for things happening in my lower back and calves. I was very surprised to find it eased my social anxiety as well! I strongly recommend Atlasprofilax for anyone, especially if you want to reconnect with your body. Alyssa is a caring, compassionate therapist who not only is wonderful with Atlasprofilax but other hands on treatment as well. She treated me as an individual, not as a cookie cutter patient. Thanks Alyssa!"

"Alyssa is amazing! Knowledgeable, skilled, patient, gets details on what you need and goes into details on what needs to be done. It's amazing how much range of motion I have now and the things I can do better from just one session!
Athletic or not being able to use your body the way it was designed to be used is not just a great feeling but very beneficial to any type of life style!"

"A week after Alyssa used the Atlasprofilax treatment on me, I ran my fastest 5K. I feel like I have more energy. And I didn't encounter my normal knee pain on my last airplane trip. Thanks Alyssa!"

"Within an hour of the Atlasprofilax treatment, I noticed that my eyesight has become clearer. In addition, I can now turn my head farther in both directions. I don't experience back aches after long days at the office. I also outran my yellow lab a few days after the treatment (but he's a bum). I had not anticipated such a noticeable difference. This treatment is definitely worth it."
