For Unparalleled Pain Relief
Therapeutic Bodywork to Support Body, Mind and Spirit
Each session is as unique as you are and makes use of our vast tools based on your needs on that day. As is now commonly understood, the work is non-sexual therapeutic massage and is offered as an addition to traditional medical and psycho-emotional therapies. We do not diagnose illness or prescribe medical treatment, and we always recommend that our clients continue to seek the input and support of other healthcare professionals. For session-specific information please see Your Session.

Trigger Point / Neuromuscular Therapy
This is the primary modality we use to achieve pain relief, restore motion, and meet other clinical needs. The technique utilizes neurological de-facilitation to reduce the severity of pain syndromes created by restrictions and knotted tensions within the muscle.
Conditions that may be helped by this work include migraines, back pain, frozen shoulder, (false) sciatica, thoracic outlet syndrome, shin splints, and whiplash to name a few. Pain relieving results are often achieved with proper office treatment and home self-care.
This very slow, deep modality works with the natural process of thixotropy—the process by which the hard gel-like connective tissue, or fascia, within the body slowly softens/liquefies. This connective tissue surrounds every muscle, organ, and tissue in the body, and as such, restrictions in this stabilizing and supporting network of tissue can cause pain, postural deviation, muscle dysfunction, and limitation of mobility.
Softening the fascia from its hardened state can release adhesions between fascial planes and muscle sheaths, support the beneficial exchange of oxygen and nutrients, and create the opportunity for fascial reorganization into greater equilibrium within the field of gravity.
Our practice offers Orthopedic Massage —a medical treatment that focuses on soft-tissue injuries and complicated pain issues common among the general population. This modality uses specifically targeted neuromuscular techniques like trigger point therapy and deep frictioning combined with deep tissue sculpting, hot and cold therapies and careful stretching techniques to restore proper function, eliminate pain and speed the body’s natural healing process.
Through dedicated collaboration with a local herbalist, Jonathan has channeled thousands of hours of clinical experience into creating 12 medicinal oil blends that he has custom-crafted to help you get even more results. These potent bodywork facilitating medicines are built for you to get the highest results available anywhere, are available to you at no cost, and will enhance your session in many ways, including:
- Getting deep tissue work done with less pain and less soreness
- Breaking down scar tissue
- Reducing joint inflammation
- Turning-on ligament repair
- Restoring damaged nerves
- Inhibiting muscle spasms
- Balancing and tonifying the nervous system
- Clearing trauma
We also utilize liniments from Chinese medicine to support tissue health and recovery, particularly during deep clinical work. Dit a Jow, Chinese Muscle Oil, Posumon, White Flower, and Arnica gel all help to get deep work done with fast healing and lasting results. Deep trigger point work is often “packed,” meaning Dit a Jow is used prior to the work and Chinese Muscle Oil after the work. In this way, lymphatic flow, blood flow, and tissue repair are increased, while preventing excessive inflammation. These liniments are for sale and are extremely restorative.
