Ever wonder what your massage therapist is really thinking about while you are thinking “Did I shave my legs?” This pretty much is exactly what I am thinking about while treating my clients. I came across these photos on Facebook. For more pictures like these, search “Back in Motion Therapeutic Massage” in Facebook.
Study Shows Massage Therapy is Cost-Effective This study shows that Massage Therapy might be the most effective treatment to improve quality of life for back pain patients among other non-physician practitioners. It also demonstrates that Massage Therapy, along with other specialities such as osteopathic, family/general, internal medicine doctors, and chiropractors were more cost-effective than other specialties for the treatment of back pain. Side note: Currently there is some controversy about the effects of Massage Therapy for low back pain. Some studies show that it is effective, and other show that it may not be so. There seems to be a correlation but causation has yet to be determined. Be skeptical.
If you love massage, we can make it work for you in any condition you are in. I came across this video about Oncology Massage and this therapist did a great job articulating how I feel about every massage therapy treatment I provide. It doesn’t matter who are, what condition(s) you have, or how much pain you are in. A good Massage Therapist will know how to modify techniques to make them work for you. I try to listen to your body with your input and provide the best possible treatment that is relevant to what your body needs in that moment. Sure, when indicated, I might suggest a treatment.
Massage Therapy is not the only way to touch someone who is experiencing pain. Pain comes in all forms. I touch people with my hands in an effort to ease their pain. This guy touches people with his voice. Bottom line is…people need to be touched. Who touched you the last time you were in pain?
We found a tool to make it easier for you to book your appointments online but that wasn’t enough for us. We were more interested in finding ways to make your life less stressful. After all, isn’t that one of the reasons why you come for a massage in the first place? Our new service, called Jane App offers you the ability to: • View our availability for up to 2 months • Book appointments online from your computer or mobile device • Set your appointment reminder preferences • Receive email receipts • Access Moda them all oat once at the end of each year • Access appointment and billing.
For those of you who haven’t yet had the opportunity to meet Ayelet (‘I’ ‘yell’ ‘it’), I strongly recommend that you consider booking a treatment with her before her schedule fills up. Ayelet has been with JBRMT now for about two months so far and will be taking on more hours to accommodate the demand for her treatments. “Whether you are recovering from an injury, want relief from muscular tension, suffer from chronic pain or are looking to reduce stress, your experience while in my care is my priority. A vital part of my practice philosophy involves creating a safe space where clients are comfortable asking questions and feel empowered.
With careful planning, you can find a healthy balance of bodywork that works for your lifestyle and your budget. 1) Limit your focus areas and duration of treatment Your therapist can assess your tissue and joints. Discuss your goals and your budget with your therapist and collaboratively determine how you might be able to narrow your focus to one or two areas and reduce the duration or frequency of the massage to reduce the out of pocket expense. 2) Book a massage without lotion or linen Set up and tear down times costs less for the therapist and it may be possible to reduce the rate accordingly providing arrangements are.
