Thank you for visiting my site,
In my approach to massage , I have chosen to focus on client or patients who are suffering with chronic pain and experiencing major life changes caused by auto accidents and impact injuries.
I specialized in relieving back pain, neck pain, headaches and any muscular related pain dysfunction due to muscle spasms & tightness that caused from accidents injuries, to help return the muscles to the naturally resting length, enhances the functioning of the circulation system to drive out toxins and increase the flow of oxygen-rich blood to muscle tissue, And lastly, helping you, or patients to enhance the healing recovery.
My services also offers outcalls or patients home visits, meaning I go to your home or patients home rather than patient comes to me. This is perfect service for client who don't want the stress of driving to and from their massage appointments for relieving pain and, or for clients who can't because of physical limitations after the accident injury.
I am accustomed to the needs of auto accidents injuries with chronic pain patients with Physician's Referral, (PIP) car insurance billing documentation, SOAP Notes and documentation requirements to participate on the health care team. Treatments may use a variety of goal-oriented modalities or procedures during the treatment, but will focus that treatment only on the areas of the body related to your doctor's diagnosis on prescription to be part of rehabilitative team.
I will accept Automobile Insurance such as:
* State Farm Insurance * All State * Farmers Insurance * (PIP) Personal Injuries Protection Claims * Other Major Medical Insurance (PIP) claims & file upon approval of the insurance company.
BACK PAIN - Back pain can originate from a variety of sources like trauma and car accidents, work related injuries and other medical condition. Pain is experienced when spinal muscles are injured. When injuries don't heal in the normal time frame, there is often underlying muscle distress, resulting in a cycle of chronic pain. If left untreated, serious back problems may lead to lost productivity at work and overall decrease in one's daily activities. Always seek advice of your doctor if you have pain & symptoms that affect your health after auto injury.
NECK PAIN- Neck pain after a car accident is commonly called to as "whiplash". Whiplash can cause damage to the minute fibers of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the neck and back. It often results in congestion and tension in the sub-occipital and sublingual / throat muscles. Non treatment of the neck injury may result in permanent loss of range of motion and persistent pain and headaches. Always seek the advice of medical professional if you have pain & symptoms that affect your health & for pain relief.
HEADACHES- Trauma to the head, neck, or spine
may result in headaches. Headaches are very common after a car
accident. Head and neck may be thrown back, forward or to the side

Headaches pain will usually subside with treatments. Always seek
advice with your doctor if you have persistent pain or symptoms
that affect your health after auto injury.
TREATING THE CAUSE OF PAIN - Some ways to get
rid of the pain is to work on the muscle imbalances by addressing
the cause of pain thru specific application of soft-tissue
HOW CAN MASSAGE TREAT MY INJURY- Whether you
have an acute muscle injury or chronic pain, aching injury massage
can help. Your therapist will be using different techniques to stop
spasming muscles, stretch and realign muscle fibers and fascia,
break up scar tissue, release old trigger points, and remove waste
and debris from injured muscles. This will allow new blood to
circulate; bringing in fresh oxygen to cells and tissue. All of
this speeds the healing of the damaged muscle while relieving pain
and discomfort. In addition, your massage will enhance circulation,
relax the nervous system, improve lymphatic flow and give you a
sense of well-being.
