Colby Bryant is a licensed neuromuscular-massage therapist who specializes in soft-tissue ailments such TMJ disorder, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and whiplash. By identifying sources of tension, Colby hopes to isolate treatment and accelerate the healing process. A typical session may consist of Swedish strokes to promote circulation or firmer deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer aches.
Though she began practicing massage therapy full-time in 1990, registered massage therapist Carrie Steffens has always been interested in helping others. She was raised by parents who emphasized the importance of holistic health and an eco-friendly lifestyle, growing their own produce in an organic garden and incorporating meditation and energy work into their everyday lives.
At Alchemy Massage & MPS Therapy, Steffens continues their tradition of physical and mental healing with a variety of specialized treatments. She performs deep-tissue, prenatal, and neuromuscular massage therapy, but she is also experienced in structural integration bodywork and is a master teacher of reiki-energy techniques. Dexterous at the art of pain management, Steffens can alleviate discomfort resulting from whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, or extended eye contact with two clowns smushing their faces together.
The massage therapists at A Healing Touch provide full-body massages, customizing each one so that they can focus on their clients’ specific areas of stress and pain. Whether they’re doling out Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massages, they pay attention to problem areas and apply careful pressure that soothes tense muscles and creates relaxing experiences.
For more than 30 years, patients have come to Green Mountain Chiropractic and Massage for pain relief and a boost in their overall health. But before offering any treatments, Dr. Mark Wolff, D.C. or his team of specialists work with clients to understand their concerns and create a customized treatment plan that targets their needs. They then realign spines with traditional adjustments and perform advanced treatments such as computer-controlled spinal decompression and deep-tissue laser therapy, which stimulates healing on a cellular level.
Dr. Wolff, D.C. also specializes in holistic healing methods. As a certified acupuncturist, he has performed thousands of treatments over the years, using traditional fine-tipped needles or, alternatively, laser beams to relieve bodies of a variety of aliments. Additionally, registered massage therapists relieve clients’ stress and tension by loosening muscles, ligaments, and impossibly stuck jar tops with soothing strokes and targeted pressure.
