About Ras Biokinetics

Deidre Ras Biokineticists have the philosophy that there is no ‘one size fits all’ to human movement. We focus on a holistic and individualistic approach by following a brain-based approach to movement rehabilitation & improvement and functional performance programming.

We believe muscles work together in synergy along myofascial lines and make sure to restore functional movement patterns in all three planes of movement. We use a variety of modalities to treat imbalances including the use of kinesiology taping applications to bring attention to the body area. Our focus is on patient education and helping each patient understand their body and injury better.

Our mission statement at Deidre Ras Biokineticists is “MOVE BETTER MOVE MORE,” which reflects our goal of improving the quality of our patient’s lives by teaching them how to move optimally. We empower our patients by educating them about the human body and how to take the best care of their body.
