“My Mission is to help people feel more comfortable in their bodies so they can do the things they love.”

As long as we are going to be on this earth it is important for us to take care of our body. So often I see clients who think that what is going on with their body is something they have to live with. The issue with just “living with the problem” is that it frequently gets worse and then we start moving differently to compensate for the issue. What started out as a small problem is now many problems one layered on top of the other because we no longer move the way that is ideal. Better to address a small pain sooner rather than many issues later.

The focus of the therapeutic massage or medical/orthopedic massage is to determine the exact cause of a client’s pain or discomfort. The goal is to work on the structures that are implicated and heal those areas so that a client can get back to the activities they love. Therapeutic massage or medical/orthopedic massage is designed to address pain, discomfort or dysfunction. It is also great in relieving muscle soreness due to a rigorous workout routine.

Through the healing process I teach clients self care so that they can continue the healing outside our sessions. This is done through educating the client on what is happening in their body, what my protocol is and how that will facilitate their healing. With this knowledge they will better understand how the self care techniques will expedite their healing. I believe in a gentle approach. The body should be convinced/cajoled into changing and not strong armed into the change.

Testimonials

Marybeth is much more than a massage therapist. She is more comparable to a "body whisperer". Her hands read the complex connections, muscles, tendons, etc of our body and soothe them into relaxation. Marybeth's extensive knowledge of the muscular and skeletal systems and their functions are unique. Many years of experience have added to her knowledge and compassionate being! Jackie,
