MASSAGE THERAPY

BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

Our quality therapeutic massage focuses on muscle relaxation targeting superficial muscles and includes blood circulation techniques that help problematic areas of the body such as sciatica, lower back pain and discomfort, and plantar fasciitis.
 

Massage is more than a one-time indulgence or a reward for a tough week. Regular massage truly enhances your everyday life, smoothing out the rough spots, helping you be your best and making it easier to deal with life's curve balls. Here are some ways massage can help:
 

Pain Management: If you have a condition such as sciatica, osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, lower back pain or tightness, Swedish massage can be a natural alternative method for managing pain .
 

Improve Recovery: Massage can help you in your recovery from muscle injuries and improve muscle and joint flexibility.
 

Reduce Stress: Massage is excellent for helping reduce stress and maximizing relaxation including reducing or eliminating tension headaches, neck, shoulder or lower back stiffness where tension is often stored.


TYPES OF MASSAGE OFFERED

There is no additional fee for a specific massage. With Mike's guidance, you select the massage that will most benefit you.
 

Connective Tissue Therapy: This technique is used to manipulate fascia (tissue surrounding muscle) to effectively promote relaxation, vitality and increase awareness. It can be of benefit to almost anyone as it can relieve chronic tension, improve posture and relieve painful symptoms of chronic diseases such as arthritis, tendinitis, TMJ and sciatica.
 

Trigger Point Therapy: Working on pinpointing precise locations on your body causing pain, referred to as "trigger points", this technique helps to resolve the problem at the source. Trigger point therapy is often the ideal treatment whether you have pain from a sporting injury, an auto accident or bad posture.
 

Traditional Swedish Massage: Recognized as the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
 

Reflexology & Lower Leg Massage: Using pressure points located in each foot that correspond directly to specific organs of the body, reflexology can improve nerve function, raise energy levels and increase circulation. This treatment includes a lower leg massage to help ease away tension.
 

Head & Neck Massage: The benefits of head and neck massage include release of muscle tension in the neck and shoulders but it is also helpful for those who suffer from tension headaches, eye strain, migraines, sinusitis and chronic neck pain.
 

Hydrotherapy: Using heat and ice to increase blood circulation, hydrotherapy aides circulation of the immune system's white blood cells, reduces inflammation, heals injured tissue, helps with the removal of waste products, improves well-being and energizes the body. For injuries, alternating applications of heat and cold accelerates healing by improving blood vessel integrity and muscle tone. Heat causes peripheral (surface) blood vessels to dilate or expand. Cold causes peripheral blood vessels to constrict and drives blood back to the organs. This treatment is combined with a soothing Swedish massage.
 

Sport Massage: As an important part of sports training and the recovery process, various techniques are used to relieve muscle soreness, stimulate circulation and increase flexibility.
 

Medical Massage: Specific musculoskeletal pathologies can be addressed by integrating a variety of modalities. These pathologies are: carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, golfer's elbow, herniated/bulging disc, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tear, sciatica, shin splints, strains/sprains, tendinitis, tennis elbow, thoracic outlet syndrome, TMJ disorder and whiplash.
 

Aroma Massage: Taking your massage experience to another level by using a blend of essential oils can be incorporated into your massage at a minimal cost.

Nutrition Consultation


  

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A NUTRITION CONSULTATION?

Whether you need a complete diet overhaul with my 12-week nutrition program or are looking to manage a medical condition or want to fine-tune your food choices or get inspiration for new, healthy recipes, a nutrition consultation can be designed for you. 

To prepare for our consultation, you will book your appointment after you have received a check up with your primary care provider. I will need to see your most current blood profiles (within 3 months). This can help inform me of any specific conditions that can be addressed with nutrition such as, elevated blood sugar, high cholesterol or blood pressure issues.

While some clients I see come in for a nutrition consultation to learn more about how their food choices effect their health, others end up in my office at their doctor's suggestion. The following are just a few conditions that can improve specifically from dietary interventions:

•Heart disease

•High blood pressure

•High cholesterol

•Allergies

•Diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions

•Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

•Celiac disease

•Obesity or overweight

•Pregnancy


WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION?

We will discuss short-term and long-term goals to provide the most appropriate nutritional options.

A brief medical history with an emphasis placed on cardiovascular history will be reviewed.

Medications and supplements you are currently taking will be reviewed. 

Your current exercise regimen will be reviewed, if applicable. 

You will also receive a comprehensive analysis of your blood test results. This analysis is then used to create a program to meet your specific goals, restrictions and lifestyle. 

We will assess your lifestyle to get a sense of your stress levels, sleep patterns, energy levels, exercise and gastrointestinal function. 

With all this information, I can begin to discuss your dietary preferences and cooking habits and identify trouble spots, like skipping breakfast or late-night snacking. From there, I'll develop some initial recommendations to help you start eating healthier.


HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS WILL I NEED?

If you are ready to incorporate some simple changes into your diet and lifestyle, one appointment should be enough to set you on the right course.  It's not unusual, however, for individuals to transition into my 12-week nutrition program after the first consultation in order to receive very specific guidance in the form of a meal plan.


HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

For $180, I will spend one hour reviewing your medical history and blood work and two hours consulting with you one on one to make recommendations for you to select healthy food alternatives that can get you on the road to a healthier lifestyle. 

Payment is paid in full at the time of the first nutrition consultation.

Nutrition counseling can be a very cost-effective investment in your long-term health. If better nutrition enables you to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol or get your weight in check, it can potentially save you thousands of dollars in medications and other care down the road.

COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS OF BLOOD TEST RESULTS

When you get your blood  results, do you really know what it means?    

 If you answered, “No”, then you’re not alone. Over the last 15 years, it has been my experience that most of my clients do not know or understand their blood test results. I believe one of the most important and empowering things we can do is to learn to understand what our blood work means. That is why my comprehensive analysis  is so important.

For the most part, physicians look at the column that has been “flagged” which indicates a concern with a particular organ, etc.  I provide an important analysis beyond the flagged items and I look for patterns physicians may not take note of.  I look at the recommended ranges and I look for potential problems. Then I am able to create suggestions and alternative options for improvement through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. 


Why it’s important information?  Knowledge is absolute empowerment. Understanding when levels are barely within normal range can help you understand the adjustments that are necessary in your lifestyle. This is the optimal time to address and prevent issues through health and nutrition.

Your blood test is one of the most important and powerful ways to know about yourself and your health at any given moment. Blood work also tells you the effects and the efficiency of medications, supplements, or your fitness regimen. It is possible to determine whether you have a specific condition that can be addressed with nutrition and to evaluate how well organs, such as kidneys, liver, thyroid and heart are functioning.


How it works? I will need a copy of your most current blood test results taken at least within a three-month period. After completing my evaluation, you will receive a comprehensive written analysis of the results.  I will provide my recommendations for a package that will be suited for you for improving your health. Included, is a consultation of up to 15 minutes following your review of the written analysis. You may ask questions to help your understanding of the report. For example: 

· Why was this program or package recommended for me?

· How do I know if the plan is working?


How much will it cost? $100.00 payment is paid in full prior to review of blood work. 

Remember, the analysis will provide a wealth of information and understanding your results can help you optimize your health and longevity.
