Chronic pain and tension are no match for licensed massage therapist Ray Sems. At her clinic, Milwaukee Family Massage, LLC, she alleviates both ailments by using myofascial massage, a technique that kneads the fascia instead of just the muscle. Other services that she offers include specialty bodywork treatments such as pregnancy, sports, pediatric, and foot massages.
At Newfitu, massage therapists Brie Groskreutz and Todd Harth call upon their respective specialties as they deal with tension-riddled clients. Todd pairs his work as both a massage therapist and personal trainer with Brie’s formal education and training in exercise science. And it’s this combined familiarity with the human body that informs wellness services for all manner of maladies, from sore backs to corsets that should have never been put in a dryer set to hot.
Newfitu’s massage styles include soothing hot-stone, deep-tissue, prenatal, oncology and sports modalities that can be tailored to any field-related injury. Massages can be scheduled to take place at the treatment center or in the comfort of a client’s home. For those seeking ongoing wellness, Newfitu also offers personal training and a core-stability program, during which clients work to strengthen their abs, lower back muscles, and understanding of oversize rubber balls.
