Active Release Technique® (ART®)

ART® is a highly successful soft tissue treatment that treats specific problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Conditions are caused by overused muscles that develop adhesions.  ART® stretches, separates, and releases these adhered tissues to relieve conditions including headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow.  My sessions are combined with focused massage to provide maximum relief and results.

Functional Movement Assessment

The SFMA is a made up of seven full-body movement tests evaluated and scored in clients experiencing pain. The assessment uses logic to find dysfunctional patterns identifying the root cause as a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem. Depending on the results, manual therapies, and corrective exercises will be used as treatment. The SFMA will guide the clinician to the most dysfunctional non-painful movement pattern, which is then assessed in detail. This approach serves as a model to efficiently integrate the concepts of posture, muscle balance and the fundamental patterns of movement into musculoskeletal practice. 

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is aimed to reduce pain, release tension, improve range of motion, and promote good muscle condition.  Pre and post event massages are beneficial to maximize performance and help with recovery.  Deep pressure is not used just prior to a race as this could reset muscles that are game ready.  Rather, moderate pressure is applied for the purpose of increasing circulation and mobilizing joints for optimal movement. Immediately following an event, sports massage can alleviate soreness in the muscles.

Orthopedic Massage

This style of manual therapy uses a multidisciplinary approach that integrates a range of techniques.  The goal is to restore structural balance throughout the body, reduce or eliminate pain, and rehabilitate musculoskeletal dysfunctions and sports injuries. With the use of multidirectional friction strokes, myofascial release, functional assessment, and scar tissue mobilization, Orthopedic massage can help restore soft tissues of the body to a state of health.

Deep Tissue Massage

This treatment uses precise and deep finger pressure as well as slow, measured strokes to alleviate pain and tension in the body. Deep tissue massage physically breaks down bands of tissue called adhesions. This process can cause some discomfort and soreness. Most people who seek this treatment suffer from chronic pain, injury, or repetitive strain caused by overuse. Sessions are customized to meet the unique needs of each client.    

Tui Na Massage

Tui Na (means "pinch and pull") refers to a wide range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapeutic massage and bodywork. The treatment uses a combination of massage, acupressure, oscillation, and other forms of body manipulation to remove blockages that prevent energy from flowing freely. The power of Tui Na massage lies in its ability to manipulate and regulate qi or chi in the body. This leads to improved energy balance, and greater health and vitality.This style of bodywork is not generally used for pleasure and relaxation, but rather as a treatment to address specific patterns of disharmony. Tui Na can be used for specific problems and orthopedic and other medical conditions. Tui Na massage for sports medicine is effective for increasing flexibility, preventing injuries, relieving pain, facilitating speedy recoveries, and optimizing fitness goals.
