What Is ASTR?
ASTR is a biopsychosocial treatment model that utilizes unique ASTR instruments, maneuvers, theories, and methodologies to treat pain at its source. ASTR treatment includes working on multiple aspects including: scar tissue, fascia restriction, trigger points, muscle spasms, ergonomics, gait, exercise, nutrition, inflammation, stress management, and behavior modification. Results from a recent neck study conducted on ASTR patients found that there was an 87% success rate for patients who went through our program!
Growing up as a minority in Egypt, I faced persecution, discrimination, and was told I would never amount to much. I was restricted by the government regarding what I could study and by the age of 7, I was diagnosed with cancer. When I was 18, I applied and eventually won the lottery to come to the US. I arrived speaking only Arabic and worked as a security guard, while learning English as I finished my BA and doctoral program.
I battled cancer again during my final year of the program and almost died three times post-surgery, but still passed my board exams. I used to suffer from chronic migraines, headaches, fatigue, and pain and was very frustrated with the outcomes I was seeing using the traditional modalities I had learned in school. This is what led me to develop ASTR. I have dedicated my life to researching and developing ASTR’s theories, methodologies of treatment, specialty instruments, and over 125 maneuvers to treat the full body.
This is a shout out to all of you dreamers who are still waiting to see your dreams fulfilled. It may not happen today, next week, years or decades, but never give up! Do not lose hope! Persist!
