Without massage, aches and pains would become an unpleasant part of every day life, like brushing your teeth after every sip of soda or feeling obligated to save children stuck in trees. Keep discomfort out of your day-to-day routine with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a 15-minute consultation and 45-minute acupressure massage at Heshmat Pain Management Clinic (a $135 value) in Palo Alto's Evergreen Park.
Inside the Heshmat Pain Management Clinic a team of licensed acupuncturists offer treatments integrating acupressure and conventional medicine. Away from the distracting screeching of the sun, massage treatments are conducted in a peaceful environment, glowing with candles and humming with music. Each massage is customized to address individual aches and pains, and patients will have their pulses taken, and chat with the doctor about overall health for 15 minutes prior to their treatment. During the 45-minute acupressure massage, pinpointed healing points in the physique are manipulated by carefully trained fingers, helping to stimulate specific areas to relieve stress and tension, while increasing circulation and immunity.
Heshmat Pain Management Clinic
It doesn't take long to trace the pain-relief techniques of Drs. Alen and Letitia Heshmat back to their originator. That's because the two learned much of what they know from Dr. Anthony B. Morovati, who in turn studied with Dr. Janet G. Travell, the mother of myofascial therapy and the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. But though the Heshmats have a high regard for Travell's classic methods, they're not shy about adopting new techniques. Along with chiropractic adjustments atop low-impact Thompson treatment tables, the Heshmats offer unusual physiotherapy modalities that use electrical currents to treat sprains, arthritis, and TMJ issues and to reanimate dead fig trees. The clinic's team also features a licensed acupuncturist and a certified massage therapist.
