I speak for John and myself when I say Patricia is the best massage therapist we have found…and we’ve been looking and trying other therapists for years! She is strong and knowledgeable and caring and versatile. Each treatment is personalized based on our needs of the day. We give her a 10 out of 10!

Patricia is simply one of the most talented and able bodyworkers I have ever met. Her attention to detail and ability to cross multiple modalities and techniques with precision is really remarkable. Working with Patricia in conjunction with Donavan has refocussed our approach in the gym and in recovery. She is professional, enthusiastic and funny. Patricia is a pleasure to work with.

What Is Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms
What is Neuromuscular Therapy used to treat?
Neuromuscular therapy is used to treat many different soft tissue problems. The following list is a small example of issues that may be helped by neuromuscular therapy:
Lower back pain, upper back pain, carpal tunnel like symptoms, sciatica like symptoms, hip pain, headaches, plantar fasciitis, calf cramps, tendonitis, knee pain, iliotibial band friction syndrome, jaw pain, tempomandibular joint pain (TMJ disorders).
Who gets neuromuscular therapy?
Anyone with muscular pain! Soft tissue pain that feels like 'knots' in the muscle are very common, but can be treated by neuromuscular therapy. We all feel muscular pain in some shape or form and now we have something to do about it.
