Dr Dawn and Ben from Action Performance Care used A.R.T. to treat my daughter for sports-induced shin splints that had been causing problems for over 2 years . After a few short sessions, my daughter is now 100% pain free. Dr Dawn also helped with her running form to minimize the chance of reoccurrence. Very highly recommended.

What Patients are Saying About Our Practice…
Dr. Dawn is truly exceptional! Her wide range of knowledge and excellent clinical care have made a dramatic difference in my recovery from several injuries. I was not seeing results with traditional modalities and honestly don’t know what would have happened if not for her amazing care and ART skill. She has made a significant impact and improvement in my life!
I live a very active lifestyle, and practice a lot of self-care to prevent injuries (foam rolling/stretching). I was extremely surprised and perplexed to find myself having acute back pain, which I thought was a dislocated rib. I had very limited range of motion in my torso, and I was walking around like a robot.
I was in mercy to my pain, and I made a same day appointment with Dr. Liu and told her about my symptoms. After a very thorough assessment, she was quickly able to pin point what was going on. My rib was completely in tact, but my psoas muscle was completely inflamed. She did some body work on my abdominal muscles (A.R.T.), and I immediately felt 40-50% less pain. I made an appointment 2 days later, and by that time my pain decreased to 70%. After my 2nd appointment of A.R.T. with Dr. Liu, my pain was down to 90%! She is so beyond educated and experienced, I was very impressed. I will see her for a few more appointments, then add in her recommendations to my self-care routine.
My insurance doesn’t cover treatments out of my network, so I paid out of pocket. It can get expensive that way, but I really feel like what you get from every visit is beyond worth the out of pocket cost. If you have ANY pain, make an appointment with Dr. Liu, I had amazing results with her, and I’m sure you will also.
Dr. Anna is amazing. Was having problems with my lower back and in just two visits I feel better than I have felt in over a year. I dreaded going thinking it would hurt. It’s the best decision I have made going.
Dr. Liu is amazing. I have been seeing her twice per week for only three weeks now and I already feel so much better, it’s shocking!
I used to run distance with no problem, then started developing a pain in my lower back so bad that I had to stop running at less than one mile. It was extremely frustrating and discouraging. I’m already back to almost 3 miles per day and am excited to keep pressing on to get back to where I was before!
She is so thorough and spends so much time with you. She really cares about you and wants to help you get better. We’ve spent time running and even discussing nutrition. If you visit her regularly, implement the running form recommendations she makes and foam roll on your own time, it works!
I was so impressed with my visit to Dr. Dawn today. She is so obviously experienced and amazing at what she does, that I feel like I am in very good hands going to see her. I would definitely highly recommend her and I will be back!
I first saw Dr. Liu six years ago when I was suffering chronic migraines due to jaw tension caused
taking a water polo ball to the face at full speed. I was suffering from migraines or headaches multiple times a week and had tried basic chiro care to no avail. Doctors said my one solution would be jaw surgery, but I gave ART a try first. After my first session my migraines stopped. I went about 4 times when I was home for the holidays and I haven’t suffered headaches since — for SIX YEARS after having them almost every day. I have never seen such amazing lasting results from any kind of care.
Heads up though, it hurts. Like REALLY hurts. There were times it hurt so bad I was worried I would pee myself on the table. But the relief after was worth it every time. She may look tiny, but Dr. Liu is STRONG!
Fast forward six years and I have chronic shoulder issues from surfing. I was ready to go for an MRI but then remembered the magic of Dr. Lui. She has helped me immensely with my shoulder problems, as well as hip and calf pain. She is great at explaining your body to you and, most importantly, will teach you how to retrain your movements to properly use your muscles. If you have any problems, give her a try. Dr. Liu has kept me in the water when I thought I’d have to give up my favorite hobby and I will always be thankful for that!
Wow! Dr. Dawn & her staff are amazing! Most thorough exam I think I have ever had, incredibly friendly, she understands runners & the need to eliminate the pain / issues, so we can get back to running! After my first ART I am already feeling less pain & have faith after her treatment plan I will be running pain free.
If you have back pain, look no further
Last year I was in so much pain it was maddening. I could go to work and get through my day but all I wanted to do was get home and lie down.
I injured myself at the gym, I literally contemplated getting a steroid injection to give me relief. My husband had gone to Dr. Anna earlier in the year and swore by her. I put off going to her for a month. Finally, I had a really bad weekend with the back pain and I finally called and made an appointment.
First off, she gave me immediate relief that would last an hour or two and it just came right back. I committed to going at least twice a week. Slowly, within three months, the pain completely resolved.
I was afraid I was going to need surgery but she helped me immensely.
She fixed me!
It’s a different type of therapy, active release therapy. It worked for me
If you are reading this, I know how you feel. Just make the call, you will not believe how much relief you will get here.
Both Dr. John and Dr. Anna have worked on me on several occasions now not to recover from injuries but instead maintain optimal health and allow me to continue with a demanding training regimen. I always walk out of their office feeling so much better than I walked in, with better functioning tissues, improved mobility, and great muscle activation. Beyond the immediate physical benefits, both Dr. John and Dr. Anna possess a wealth of knowledge and provide me with the tools to better care for myself when I’m not in their office. They’ve helped me create a better understanding of my own working anatomy and how I can maximize my own physical potential. 5 stars does not do these guys justice.
