About this pro

Dr. Shannon of Empire Health in Lower Manhattan delivers quality care through compassion and hopes to empower and educate all her patients toward a more healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Shannon Connolly is an alternative health care provider who concentrates on treating primarily musculoskeletal issues. She uses muscle testing and soft tissue techniques that cater directly to your physical issues.

She believes that a healthy mind-body connection is imperative for all to perform at their optimal function. She treats a range of clientele, such as CrossFit athletes and marathon runners to babies and pregnant women. Everyone, no matter what age, can benefit from maintenance treatment.
As competitive athletes (and a fellow Cross Fitter), we are intentionally and constantly altering our body's bio-mechanics in an effort to become bigger, stronger, and faster. With all of this intense high intensity weight training, it is essential to seek relief care, corrective care, and maintenance care to avoid muscular imbalances and the accumulation of overuse injuries.

I use multiple specific soft tissue techniques along with mobilizations and stretches to treat all sorts of muscular and skeletal issues. The adjustment is not the only tool I use. I perform a combination of active release, instrument assisted soft tissue, and cupping therapies to release adhesion and decrease tension. These therapies will help increase your muscular systems ability to adapt to constant change and load and avoid the potential for injuries!
I am a certified BirthFit Professional, NKT Level 1 Provider, Webster Technique Certified, FAKTR and RockTape Certified.
