Medical Massage Centre
Your body is my business!!
If you suffer from muscle related pain, medical massage/bodywork would
be beneficial to you. I am a skilled practitioner, with over 19 years of
hands on experience working with people in pain.
The fundamental distinction between medical massage and other forms of
bodywork is the fact that medical massage is performed primarily on
persons with muscle injuries, muscle pain syndromes, and muscle
diseases diagnosed by a doctor or chiropractor. It is not a spa
treatment, and rarely involves lubricants (oils, creams or lotions).
Performing medical massage requires a firm background in anatomy and
pathology. It utilizes specific treatments appropriate to working with
disease, pain, and recovery
from injury. The therapist may work from a physician’s prescription or as an
adjunct healer within a hospital or physical therapy setting. The goal of
medical massage is to apply therapeutic impact on parts, systems, and
organs of the body using direct (local) or indirect (reflex) methods
of treatment. Thus, medical massage is a
method of treatment with the same goals as any other medical procedure.

If you are having discomfort during pregnancy, low, upper or mid back, sciatic
pain, or you just need to relax and be pampered I can help.
After delivery you owe it to yourself to get your S.I. joints looked at, to make
sure everything is working correctly. Pregnancy puts a huge strain on the body so
take care of yourself.

PRE & POST NATAL BODYWORK
I've always loved massage, and have been a huge advocate of
utilizing massage for medicinal and therapeutic reasons in addition to
indulging in an hour of luxurious relaxation. After suffering a
miscarriage in my second trimester. I knew I'd need massage
therapy upon getting pregnant again to help me relax and enjoy my
pregnancy but more importantly keep my bones and muscles in premium
shape to help sustain forty weeks of significant change to my body.
Not only is David kind, informative and extremely accessible, his
attention to detail and intuitive talent and gift for healing is remarkable.
I was high risk during my pregnancy. I could not exercise, as I was
accustomed to, because of this my body was unbelievably tight and out of
shape. David continuously helped encourage underused muscles to relax and
promote the flexibility I was so proud of obtaining. I highly recommend
David's massage therapy and am thrilled he is only one mile away. I'm
looking forward to many post-natal massages.
