Medical Massage Therapy

A functional-alignment based method

A complimentary aid for physical therapy, chiropractic, sports medicine, acute and chronic pain management, and more, orthopedic massage is a results-based modality used to address neuromuscular, myoskeletal, and soft-tissue related injuries and dysfunction.


We use a functional-alignment approach, as opposed to structural-alignment based methods. The human body works in near-symmetry and not symmetry itself. 

Conditions we have experience with:
  • Frozen shoulder

  • Chronic tension headaches

  • Whip-lash

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

  • Pelvic innominates

  • Low-back pain

  • Tennis & Golfer's elbow

  • Plantar fasciitis 

  • Sciatica & Piriformis Syndrome

  • Functional scoliosis

  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Repetitive use injuries

  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction

  • Myofascial Pain Syndromes


Soft-Tissue Mobilization

Despite the very uncool name, IASTM is one of the easiest methods of getting your soft tissues to ungrip from your muscles and connective tissues. Painless and warming, the technique is described as feeling like the skin is loosening around tight areas and helps to decrease the sensitivity around areas that are difficult to work with.
