Orthopedic Massage is a comprehensive system (rather than a single technique) that involves therapeutic assessment, manipulation and movement of soft tissue to resolve pain and dysfunction. Its focus is restoring function and structural balance throughout the body for both prevention and rehabilitation of myoskeletal dysfunctions. Orthopedic massage takes a multidisciplinary approach that looks to resolve the origin of pain and dysfunction resulting from trauma induced injuries or postural balances that exacerbate pain through daily activities.
Using orthopedic/corrective massage I work to restore your body’s structural integrity. I achieve this with several techniques including trigger point release, nerve mobilization, myoskeletal correction, and cupping. Some of the conditions I treat are sciatica, back spasm/pain, frozen shoulder, hip issues, thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel, tennis/golfers elbow, IT band pain, whiplash, tendonitis/tendonosis, and scar tissue release.
My services help you live free of pain and in a place of optimal health. The key to the growth of my practice has been my wonderful clients sharing their results with family, friends and coworkers.
