I deliver the results you're looking for - pain relief and improved function. I listen, ask questions, and assess to understand your body and your goals.
Do you have muscle soreness, tension, and limited range or ease of motion?
Are you an athlete striving to improve your performance?
Do you have a more complex issue (such as fibromyalgia, low back pain, sciatica, TMJ, knee pain, shoulder pain, headaches, carpal tunnel, etc.)?
I tailor my approach to best meet your individual needs.
If you have pain, numbness, or tingling, relief is always my first priority.
I use Medical Massage which integrates other clinical approaches (Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Post Isometric Relaxation) along with additional techniques that address the central nervous system component of pain/injuries - this is the key to more complete relief.
I also work with people with injuries or before/after surgery to relieve restrictions, enabling you to rehabilitate more quickly and effectively with less pain.
If you are an athlete, are engaged in repetitive movement activities, or have postural issues, I want to make sure that any misalignments are corrected, making you less vulnerable to injury. I also ferret out any restrictions to fine tune your muscles for peak performance.
Medical Massage as taught by Dr Ross Turchaninov (the father of Medical Massage in the U.S.), is a comprehensive approach to treating specific issues (low back pain, sciatica or piriformis syndrome, knee pain, headaches, shoulder pain or rotator cuff syndrome, carpal or tarsal tunnel, TMJ, illiopsoas syndrome, tennis or golfer's elbow, trapezius syndrome, tibial nerve neuralgia, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, and many other conditions).
Detailed assessment and analysis enables me to work efficiently, utilizing unique techniques which are scientifically proven to be most effective for the issue affecting you. Sessions are focused on the areas experiencing issues as well as other links in the chain that led there, rather than full body. It is specific and integrated across all levels of tissue along the nerve pathway, addressing root cause. It improves effectiveness with less pressure and discomfort (more gain with less pain).
The areas addressed and the length of each session are determined by the treatment that is needed.
I look forward working with you to find the best path to vibrant health!
