ORTHOPEDIC MASSAGE THERAPY

Orthopedic Massage Therapy for shoulder pain

Orthopedic Massage Therapy is a focused treatment that includes a combination of techniques such as Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Scar Tissue Release, and Sports Massage.  Using this multidisciplinary approach, I am able to restore your body’s structural balance, allowing for both rehabilitation and prevention.

In a healthy body the skeleton essentially floats within the soft tissues (muscle, connective tissue, fascia, etc). Movement within a balanced posture is free, fluid, and painless.  When we are out of balance our tissues may become overstretched or rigid and movement becomes restricted.  These imbalances force us to use our bodies in unnatural ways and over time these compensations can manifest as chronic pain or repetitive strain injuries.  

What to expect:

I am told by many clients that they have never experienced a massage like the one I have given them. Truth be told, before orthopedic training I had not experienced anything like it either.  We start out by having a conversational evaluation of your health history as well as assess posture and range of movement. Then, together we will create a treatment plan that reflects your individual needs and goals.  Each session integrates both therapeutic and relaxation elements in order to allow the body to receive full benefit of each massage.
