What is treatment like at Peaceful Strength Massage?
Your first session begins with a complete history gathering. We will do a head to toe assessment, as many problems are not isolated to the area where pain is felt. All first sessions include actual treatment, so you will get the chance to experience what makes clinical massage at Peaceful Strength unique.
When you come in for pain relief we focus on your areas of concern before moving onto a whole body approach. Our goal is for you to find a reduction in pain and an increase in mobility first.
Traditional massage therapy uses oils and lotions with slide and glide or finger tips pressing and rubbing on ”tight” areas. Integrated manual therapy at Peaceful Strength is very different, we focus on assessing and treating the area of pain with the correct modality before moving on to the next, all while encouraging the client to participate in their own treatment. We see pain often caused by excessive tightness within the body, creating pressure on pain sensitive structures (nerve, muscle, soft tissue). The goal of our treatment is to reduce or eliminate this tightness (feeling of discomfort), allowing you to move freely, without pain.
For your appointment we request that you bring appropriate clothing. Women are asked to bring a sports bar, sports top, or loose fitting tank or t-shirt and exercise shorts. Men; a loose fitting pair of workout shorts.
