In the last two weeks, I've suffered from a dull back pain that made it uncomfortable to sit at my computer and work, and that is a lot of what I do, so I needed to get this taken care of. One of our clients is Shiloh Williamson, Certified Massage Therapist, so I made an appointment and went to see her last week. I wasn't sure what to expect and having been to a physical therapist once before and had a very bad experience, I was interested how or if this would be different.
It was very different. A couple of days after last weeks appointment, the pain began to subside, but one thing I noticed was that I had much more range of motion than before the appointment. She worked through relaxing my tensed up muscles so well, that I could move so much better. The second appointment brought even more relief.
All I can say is that it was a great experience and I feel much better and can move better and the pain is almost completely gone. If you have an issue like that or something similar, give Shiloh a try. Call her for a consultation or an appointment at 707-301-0440. Her website is http://www.shilohcmt.com/.
Below is a quote from the home page of her website:
"[I offer] certified medical massage therapy services. This is a type of massage that is defined as medically necessary massage, which is prescribed by a physician. Medical massage is practiced in relation to a specific goal focused on improving the health of my patients. It can be helpful to individuals who suffer from an assortment of health conditions, including repetitive motion injuries, muscle spasms, neuromuscular conditions, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, chronic headaches, whiplash, rotator cuff injuries, and soft-tissue injuries as well, to name a few. Overall, medical massage is a noninvasive therapy that produces beneficial health results to those experiencing numerous health-related illnesses and injuries.
I also focus on wellness massage. It is a gentle, non-invasive massage. I find and touch the pain -- I don't inflict the pain. By asking a few questions and looking at a patient's body, I find where the pain is hiding. Sometimes for a moment it could be uncomfortable but, once I release that pain my patients feel great relief. It is important to listen and understand the somatic of what a patient is experiencing. I work with my clients to help them understand what their bodies are saying in order to achieve the best results. My education and background is utilized not only with my patients that require medical massage, but also carries over to my patients that come to me for wellness massage, however, wellness massage is non-prescribed."
