Effective Soft Tissue Therapy for Pain Relief
The Work

 

 

Body-Mend is a therapeutic approach to pain relief. The focus is on soft tissue  (muscle, tendon, ligament,fascia) manipulation. Just as important as the bodywork are the techniques provided that are done at home to keep you out of pain. 

 

The session work is done with clothes on and most often combines bodywork done on a mat on the floor as well as on a massage table. When you come for a session, wear loose comfortable clothes and be ready for a soft tissue workout!  Women should avoid wearing skirts and dresses.

 

Body-Mend work has been effective for chronic pain conditions including:

    • Shoulder/neck pain
    • TMJ
    • Frozen shoulder
    • Thoracic outlet syndrome
    • Carpal Tunnel
    • Sciatic pain
    • Knee pain
    • Plantarfasciitis
    • Chronic headaches
    • Tennis and golfers elbow
    • Range of motion limitations
    • Low back pain
 

 

When you come for your first session you can expect a thorough intake that often includes the following: 

  • A detailed health history to determine potential causes for the pain condition

 

  • Body alignment assessments to determine imbalances in the way one uses their body

 

  • Full explanation and demonstration of self myofascial release techniques using a softball and/or foam roller

 

  • A discussion of health goals with the work so progress can be tracked

 

This intake can take up to 20 minutes so the first session is an additional $10.
