Massage therapy has been used for years as an alternative to western medicine to treat many conditions such as headaches, fibromyalgia, and pain caused by the soft tissue structures of the body. I use Orthopedic Massage and Neuromuscular Reprogramming, and P-DTR to effectively and gently loosen the tissues of the body using manual muscle testing, providing mobility and stability in the body's structure for pain free movement in your every day life.
Orthopedic Massage is a modality that focuses on soft-tissue injury rehabilitation. The goals include decreasing pain, increasing range of motion, and preparing the body to return back to normal daily routines. This modality focuses on moving muscles in specific directions and relieving scar tissue tension to help the joints properly align which, produces the desired results.
Nueromuscular Reprogramming is an assessment tool using manual muscle testing to see which muscles are compensating for others that aren't quite working at normal capacity. Once we balance the muscle to muscle relationships the structures of the body have less stress on them and can move freely.
P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex) was invented by an orthopedic surgeon from Mexico. He observed different muscle testing techniques while patients were attached to electrodes to measure brain waves. He discovered that different sensory receptors can become dysfunctional and send signals to the brain when stimulated, to tell the body to create compensation patterns to avoid the undesirable stimulus. Once mapped out we can change these signals and tell the brain that the compensation pattern is unnecessary.
Combined, these modalities make up the unique treatment that I have to offer and create lasting results that you will love! I don't just work out knots, I solve problems!
