Along with several, complimentary treatment modalities, the physical aspect of massage therapy is only part of the treatment process; a small piece of the puzzle. The manual approach to assessment and treatment focuses on returning clients to their normal functioning, pre-injury state. Educating and encouraging individuals in their journey back from injury and capable of striving for their projected life goals, is an essential ingredient of treatment. The focus is on what can be done through training, education and integrated therapy to help individuals get back the life they had before injury; fully rehabilitated. Whether Sports, MVA (motor vehicle accident) to ADL (activities of daily living) injuries, each treatment is individual and focuses on the needs of you, the client.
