Innovative, Non-Invasive Therapies for

Pain, Stress and Pain Management 

I specialize in helping general pain, acute pain, chronic pain and releasing deep seated stress. To do this I use Cranial-Sacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Integrative Manual Therapy, and Strain-Counter-Strain Therapy. They work synergistically. I am getting good and fast results offering these therapies. They are risk free, not painful, and induce deep relaxation all while the client is in their own loose fitting exercising clothes.

Deep-seated stress is often a significant component of pain and chronic pain anywhere in the body. Often deep-seated stress components of pain are not addressed effectively enough. This could result in pain not improving significantly. I often see clients who tell me they have no known reason why they are having pain and have not been able to find a diagnosis.

Cranial-Sacral and Integrative Manual Therapy offer techniques for helping un-diagnosable pain; sometimes called “mystery pain”. Often this unexplainable pain, stems from certain cranial sacral system restrictions and/or deep-seated stress residing in the body. I also address a wide range of pains that aren’t stemming from stress.

It can be confusing weather or not to try health care you or your other health care providers may not have heard of. A simple way to understand these therapies and/or to feel comfortable with trying them is to schedule an appointment. In the first appointment, we would discuss the situation you need help with, have at least an hour of therapy, then discuss the findings of the therapy session. We should get a sense of whether therapy here would be helpful for you. You could go home and feel it out, then schedule another therapy session.

My clients usually experience some improvement after the first therapy session. There is no risk with the therapies I offer. I have been practicing these therapies for 22 years and have never had a client tell me having therapy here made their situation worse. You are welcomed to call/text 757-869-1936 or email with any questions or concerns before you schedule an appointment.

Meet David Herring, Founder and Lead Therapist at Innovative Pain Release Center

He established it in 2005. David is an Integrative Manual Therapist (IMT). Please refer to and go to meet our practitioners to learn more about what an IMT therapist does.

David’s personal mission statement: after achieving much improvement for my pain and contributing stress through cranial sacral therapy, myofascial release, and integrative manual therapy I had a sense that I would be good at practicing these therapies. Also, I was aware that many people who tried many forms of health care for their pain and discomfort didn’t find adequate improvement. I learned many people in this situation find adequate help through these therapies. I saw this as a meaningful way to help people and learned these therapies at the Connecticut school of integrative manual therapy. This was a three-year intensive academic and clinical program in Hartford Connecticut. Being able to help so many people who felt stuck with intense pain and stress is very rewarding for me. I love offering this work.
