Services are designed to relieve pain and stress related to day-to-day living, as well as assist in the rehabilitation of physical injuries. Andrea uses a comprehensive approach to treat clients by assessing muscular imbalances and restoring proper functional relationships in the client’s neuromuscular system. More than simply a therapeutic technique, Andrea’s approach is more of a holistic way of thinking and applying clinical reasoning in soft tissue therapy that focuses on how to get to the most likely source of pain and discomfort as efficiently as possible. Andrea’s treatments are always deductive and based on individual desired outcomes. In addition to carefully tailored massage therapy treatments, you will also receive valuable information about stretching and strengthening exercises for home care. The knowledge that you will gain will not only improve your well-being and help you manage pain in your life, but it will also allow you to get the most out of each massage therapy treatment.
