Myofascial Therapy: A Valuable Tool In The Fight Against Pain

Janet Travell, M.D. (Staff Physician to President John F. Kennedy) was an early pioneer in the application of myofascial therapies. Today, physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists all advocate for the use of these methods to reduce pain and dysfunction.

"Massage therapy is a complementary therapy, not alternative anymore. It's of tremendous benefit."

- Brad Stuart, M.D., Hospice Medical Director for the Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice of Northern California

Soft tissue therapies are increasingly being prescribed by physicians to complement traditional medical treatments as a growing body of research documents their efficacy. 


When a muscle is strained, chemicals are released that irritate nearby nerve endings. Fluid collects, compressing those same nerves. This cascade leads to a pain experience. Over time, flexibility becomes impaired, perpetuating that experience. Massage activates neurologic pathways that reduce pain while moving these chemicals into your lymphatic system and improving circulation.

End result: you feel better, you move better!


Massage doesn't just feel good

Massage can lower heart rate and blood pressure, increase circulation, relax muscles, improve range of motion and increase serotonin and endorphins, enhancing your sense of well-being.

Health insurance companies, realizing the cost savings from myofascial therapies, frequently cover them as an aspect of your care.

Our therapists personalize their approach to improve your function and reduce pain.
