Case Study: Kicking Headaches, Back Pain & Adopting A Healthier Lifestyle
Sam had never really been to a Massage & Manual Therapist.
His girlfriend was seeing someone and she had relief from headaches she was having for years. He was skeptical but he did notice that she was feeling better and she no longer was suffering from daily headaches. She seemed happier and more at peace after, so he decided to try it for himself. She told him about Myofascial Trigger Points and made the introduction.
He expected to be intimidated but the calming atmosphere, music and aromas put him immediately at ease. He was struggling with chronic back pain and couldn't find relief from Chiropractic or Physical Therapy. His doctor prescribed him muscle relaxants but he preferred chemical free options if possible.
Even a month his first session, he could still feel noticeable changes in his pain levels from chronic to no pain.
His therapist recommended he drink a lot of water and eat a healthier diet for a few days. Not only did he do as instructed, he felt so inspired that he changed his diet permanently. He also joined a beginner yoga class and committed to finding a gym.
And now he visits monthly for wellness treatments that keep him feeling great!

Some Common Myths About Massage & Manual Therapy
“I had an xray and an MRI. Nothing shows up.”
Myofascial Trigger Points do not show up on imaging. When you look at Trigger Point charts, you may be surprised to find your pain showing up quite clearly. We'll assess before we treat and clarify if there is a better pathway to treatment. Many clients have suffered pain for years and have received treatment from a variety of clinicians. And then they found a practitioner who understood Myofascial Pain Syndromes. Referred pain is the most misunderstood and mistreated of all the pain syndromes.
“Massage & Manual Therapy is an unaffordable luxury.”
As I Listen & Follow, we will trigger the relaxation response in such a way that you may never have experienced such a deep state of relaxation. You may find yourself in a state of bliss as you surrender to this unique therapy. Inner Peace and relaxation are part of a healthy lifestyle. Everyone should be able to benefit from the physical and emotional rejuvenation that comes with a trip for Massage & Manual Therapy. That includes you.
“I don't want to sign up for endless sessions."
The rule of thumb is 4-6 sessions of aggressive (in terms of time versus pressure) therapy to treat issues in chronic pain. Typically, when managing chronic pain, treatment 2x weekly is recommended. During that time, we'll know right away if this is the right therapy for you. At the end of the first series of treatment, we'll reassess and determine a schedule moving forward.
