“I had a client suffering from whiplash—sore neck and shoulders, headaches, back pain, and sleepless nights. He was a young professional with a demanding job. He normally would exercise daily to manage his stress, but after the car accident he was unable to. After his first session, he had a significant reduction in his pain and an increase in his range of motion. Following a series of regular treatments over the course of a few weeks he was 100% pain free with unimpeded range of motion and was able to resume his more intense exercise routine. He continues to receive massage on a regular basis to help manage his stress and keep his body in peak condition.”
