Bodywork + Massage
At over 5000 years old Massage Therapy (Yoga & Aromatherapy for that matter) are the oldest therapies on the planet.
There are many different types of massage from super light touch therapies (such as Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Energy Work such as Reiki, and Swedish Massage) and there are more heavy handed orthopedic based therapies (such as Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Re-Education, Myofascial Release, Active Release Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Soft Tissue Aided Therapy and Structural Integration), but the best possible combination is what works for you today.
As a Board Certified Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist (NC #6472), I am able to customize the treatment you need based on how you feel that day, your symptoms, your gait (how you walk in) and your biomechanics (how you move through space). Putting all these identifiers together let’s me channel my inner Sherlock Holmes and I get to solve the mystery of why you hurt and create a plan (or be part of the plan) on how to resolve the problem.
The difference between real bodywork and just a massage lies in the magic of the hands blended with the science of actual education and experience. True bodywork is so much more than what can be learned in school. To me, it’s preventative care, it is identification of true issues that you may not even be aware of, it’s working with other healthcare and exercise professionals, it’s knowing what is contraindicated to keep you safe, it’s educating you to let you make the best choices possible and it is getting you to your goal, regardless of whether it is running a marathon or being able to walk out to get the mail everyday. Your goal is my goal.
