Also new is their Grilled Lemongrass Chicken, a unique dish of chicken marinated in the chef’s special sauce steeped deep in family tradition. A one-of-a-kind culinary coup!

Get relief from the pain of everyday stress

The pace of life rarely slows down for busy people. It’s always ‘go go go’. At the end of the day we hit the sack and crash, only to wake the next morning realizing that our bodies ache.

But we have to stick to our routines and time frames so we get up and get going again, regardless of the pain.

Over a few weeks repeating this process can add up to some serious physical grief! The truth is that if we actually want to keep this same pace up for the long term, we need to make time to take care of ourselves.

That’s why I suggest that you come to try myofascial trigger point release.

I am Jeff Bergin and I run Sport Performance Institute. I spend time finding the source of your aches and pains and then I help to remove them one by one. Even the ones that you didn’t realize were there.

Most sessions average about 20 minutes and the release of pressure and range of motion can be immediate.

Just know that this is not massage!! It is a personal, targeted approach to pain relief.

Triggers are painful and my job is to remove them. If you think that you have tried everything and nothing works — give me a call at 613-614-4676 or email to jeff.bergin@spicertification.com.

Book now for only $40 per 20-minute session.
