What is Myofascial Release?

Claire Swora., LMT Jul 12, 2016 Our Studio

What is Myofascial Release? By Claire Swora   Myo refers to muscles, and fascia is the connective tissue that bind muscles, bones, and organs together. We all remember the diagrams of muscles from textbooks in elementary school, but what is the function of the fascia? It connects and covers all parts of the body in a strong, fibrous sheeting, but it also plays a...

Why I love being a Massage Therapist

Brett K., LMT Jun 10, 2016 Our Studio

To put it simply, it is the people.  The people I get to work with everyday and the clients I have the privilege of helping.  There is no better feeling in the world than seeing the look of relief on someone’s face after they get of the table.  Knowing that you were able to help that person, even if it is temporary, experience relief from an injury or the...

Client Success Story

I Love Being a Massage Therapist!

Matthew T., LMT May 9, 2016 Our Studio

I love being a massage therapist; it is the best job that I have ever had! Ever since I was little I knew that whatever career I pursued would involve helping people. I have held numerous professional positions throughout my life that did help others, but only tangentially. However, the lack of face to face interaction with others and the mounting stress of surviving in corporate...

So what can you do on a daily basis to de-stress? Here are some tips to get you started:   Listening...

Why home self-care is important to the healing process.

Connie C., LMT Apr 22, 2016 Our Studio

Massage has stand-alone benefits, but the benefits improve tremendously when self-care is performed. Self-care may include drinking proper amounts of water, stretching, cold and hot packs, foam rolling, rest, changes to lifestyle habits, and paying close attention to areas of pain and what is causing them. Regular self-care will help reduce tension, keep you hydrated,...

Emotional Release + Bodywork

Hannah Rose, LMT Feb 24, 2016 Our Studio

Last year I was working with a client who had just been in an intense car accident. Even though she was the one with the least number of injuries, she was living with severe whiplash and trauma, from the event and also losing a friend. The first few times we worked together on her whiplash, she was also emotionally releasing her trauma and pain, as we slowly softened and opened...

Therapist Testimonial

Hannah Rose Ecklund Jan 14, 2016 Our Studio

Not every client is here to "get better".  For some clients getting better is not the hand they were dealt.  Terminal illness, degenerative disease, and paralyzed limbs are just a few examples of conditions I've helped clients manage.  Treatment is focused on feeling a little bit lighter, more aligned, and stronger to carry on with daily medical...

The constant bombardment of pain affects quality of life through raised levels of anxiety, depression, fatigue and others.      Massage has...

One of the most recommended self-care tips I provide my clients with is using a lacrosse ball to roll out their feet, gluteals, back, or neck. A great tool!
