MASSAGE THERAPY

Science-based massage?! Let me explain....

It is my job, as a professional, to be honest and upfront in this regard. The sad truth is that massage therapy has almost no significant proven medical benefits and is burdened with an embarrassing number of myths and a history of amateurish research. Massage therapists are hardly alone in this: the entire field of musculoskeletal medicine is generally scientifically improverished and lagging well behind most of the rest of evidence-based medicine. It is important to know that massage therapy does not provide many of the benefits as once thought. Our hands cannot stretch your muscles, flush your toxins or break up your knots, among other myths.

 

Science shows, however, it's a great way to down regulate the nervous system from everyday stressors. Massage has some plausible benefits such as enhancing mood, reducing anxiety & promoting better sleep patterns. Massage can be a rich and novel sensory experience, which can in turn be a major mechanism for therapeutic benefits and even pain relief specifically. If massage works, it’s probably mainly because of the neurology of touch (as opposed to, say, changing tissues).

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual Therapy has shown to activate a cascade of neurophysiological effects related to pain modulation and range of motion improvement. It is a more strategic type of bodywork that targets a specific area on the body that is experiencing pain. I use manual therapy to load certain tissues that may not be managing and dissipating forces well, causing nearby (or farther) structures to become agitated. Manual therapy is the perfect complement to corrective exercises for chronic pain.

THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE

Therapeutic exercises are the primary choice of non-pharmacological treatment for chronic neck pain, chronic low back pain, complex regional pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and similar other unremitting pain syndromes. 

After a thorough assessment, we can begin to provide your body with more movement options. These gentle, sometimes challenging, stretches or contractions can provide your nervous system with new information that not only mitigates pain but strengthens the muscles surrounding the compromised joint. This is by far the most beneficial way to combat chronic pain. Not only do they empower clients, they provide life-long tools for clients to use at their expense. MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE
