How did you get started in the industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I've been in the health and wellness field for 13 years. I knew the benefits of therapeutic massage for all of the athletes and patients that I worked with in sports medicine/the physical-therapy field. I felt it was time to branch off and open my own business addressing those needs.
Armstrong Massage Rehab doesn't offer typical day-spa massages. Instead, Justin Armstrong specializes in using massage therapy to complement muscular-rehabilitation efforts and help his clients overcome the chronic aches and pains caused by injury. Justin's massages do provide a sense of calm and relaxation as they alleviate tension throughout the body. However, the ultimate goal is to facilitate holistic health and well-being without resorting to medications. To ensure that he can address a wide range of potential concerns, Justin can employ specialized massage modalities depending on his clients' needs. Traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques target knots and areas of withheld tension, myofascial release addresses the trauma caused by acute injuries, and trigge- point therapy restores healthy muscular function while reducing inflammation in the surrounding connective tissues. Utilizing these modalities, along with several others, allows Justin to help clients manage the pains caused by anything from sciatica to car accidents.
