About Palpation Massage Therapy

Palpation Massage Therapy is a neuromuscular massage therapy clinic
specializing in pain relief and trigger point therapy.

What is Neuromuscular Therapy?

Neuromuscular Therapy is a highly-specialized form of manual therapy that corrects pain and dysfunction by treating trigger points, muscle adhesions, and fascial (connective tissue) patterns. These trigger points, adhesions and fascial patterns can form due to a specific trauma, postural pattern, or series of repetitive movements. Neuromuscular Therapy sessions utilize precise treatment protocols to correct these patterns by releasing tight fascia, palpating and decreasing trigger points in tight bands of muscle and releasing areas of stuck muscle in an effective and efficient manner. The muscular areas of pain, and the surrounding muscles that are affected due to biomechanics and compensation for the primary pain are treated using these protocols. Pressure used during the treatment is based on the client’s pain threshold – “no pain, no gain” is NOT the motto. I ask the client to provide feedback on the sensitivity of trigger points and tissue; if the client’s pain reaches 8 on their 1-10 pain scale, the treatment is too intense. After 7 on the scale, the tissue starts to tighten up in response to the pain which is counterproductive, and inappropriate for achieving the client’s goals. Neuromuscular treatments are rarely full-body; the work is concentrated on the primary and secondary areas of the body that are causing the pain you are experiencing, and limiting range of motion. In order to specialize in Neuromuscular Therapy, a therapist must receive additional training beyond traditional massage therapy education

– I love human anatomy, and thrive on helping the community.

Using my hands as well as my heart, I help my clients relax and bring them back to a world where life is manageable. I challenge myself to actively keep learning and currently offer a variety of techniques tailored to meet each individual’s needs. 

I specialize in working with clients who experience pain in their necks or backs. Often the culprit is a muscular imbalance brought on by an injury, poor posture, or too much time sitting.

I help relax tired, overstressed muscles that are pulling bones out of alignment and bring them back to a more natural, healthy and flexible state.
