Angela uses a unique approach to finding the the DIRECT source of the problem by combining many different Integrative Health Therapies to treat Inflammation and eliminate pain and discomfort.
Sessions with Angela are not solely massaged based as I have found most therapies work better in combination with each other. Sessions are designed to treat the direct source of pain.
PAIN CAN COME FROM MAY DIFFERENT SOURCES : CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, THE BODIES LYMPH, CARDIOVASCULAR, SYSTEMS, REFERRAL PAIN FROM AND ORGAN OR A BREATHING OR MUSCULAR / DYSFUNCTION AND /OR MOVEMENT PATTERN.
Just because you are feeling the pain or discomfort in your back it does not mean that it where it is coming from. INFLAMMATION will attack the body at it's weakest point, and this is where we experience PAIN. This type of therapy’s goal is to treat the root of the problems and relies on full participation of the client.
Initial sessions include full health histories and assessments that include postural analysis and various orthopedic and other tests to help identify the most likely causes and contributing factors involved in the muscular discomfort.
Male clients may be asked to wear shorts, while women may be asked to wear shorts and a sports top to facilitate positioning changes ON AND OFF THE TABLE .
Unlike relaxation-oriented massages where you are able to "drift off" during the session, sessions with Angela require your active participation, as your input and feedback are critical to uncovering the source of the pain problem.
Conditions that took months or years to develop will not likely go away (and stay away!) in one session.
At AMZ Massage Therapy, we strive to achieve measurable improvement after three to five sessions, although the total number and length of sessions will vary, depending on each individual's response and condition.
