My Path & Massage Philosophy
I have found my place ! I've worked all kinds of jobs from pumping gas in college to corporate America and I never felt at home. Well for the last 4+ years I've been able to do what I love, Deep Tissue Massage and Swedish Relaxation Massage. People are happy to see me and even happier when their done with their massage session. Well that's enough about me, whats going on with you ? Does your body hurt ? Is it a new pain or something that you've been living with for some time ? Deep Tissue Massage can help !
I've dedicated myself to learning a wide variety of deep tissue massage techniques aimed at restoring health and normal function to the soft tissues of our bodies. I've studied the application of these massage techniques from our joint capsules on outward. If your suffering from pain associated with muscle or joint stiffness please allow me to apply these massage techniques and provide you some relief.
One of the worst thing you can do is ignore muscle pain because in order to limit pain and/or damage to the area, the body will alter the movement of the closest joint or stop moving the joint all together. The result will be improper function of other muscles to compensate for the limited movement of the joints associated with the original injured muscles. This improper function may and often does lead to dysfunction of other body parts wholly different from the original area of pain. For example, you tweaked your your shoulder playing with your kids. You wake up the next day and it hurts when you move it. The muscles of the shoulder are then subconsciously told by our brains to stop moving the shoulder because it hurts and movement may cause damage. The muscles of the shoulder tighten limiting movement and limiting further damage. Good, right ? Yes for the obvious reason of less pain and damage :) but there are trade offs. Lets say you go to pick up things with that arm or move the mouse with your wrist. Movements of the elbow and wrist often times involve rotation of the shoulder or some type of coordinated movement with the shoulder. So when the shoulder can not move within its normal range of motion, the movement at the elbow and wrist joints will have to compensate for the limited movement at the shoulder joint. Often times over working the muscles of the elbow and wrist causing tightness and dysfunction of the those joint movements as well. You see it's literally all connected. Let me help.
