Licensed therapist Michael Snell dedicated himself to therapeutic massage after undergoing regular bodywork sessions to help restore range of motion limited by a shoulder injury. Snell tailors each massage to meet his clients’ unique needs by incorporating specific modalities, such as neuromuscular therapy to soothe mental sources of pain or trigger-point treatments to relieve jammed trigger fingers. Patients might opt for a gentle Swedish massage that aims to boost circulation and eliminate muscular toxins with a series of smooth, flowing motions. Deep-tissue treatments harness more intense pressure to assuage chronic aches and increase mobility. Additional sessions help clients achieve personal wellness objectives, such as improved health, stress relief, or the ability to bend their arm into an isosceles triangle.
Following a surgery for a rotator cuff injury, Michael Snell received some troubling news from his doctor. Even with physical therapy and rehab, he would only regain 75% to 85% of his range of motion back. Unwilling to accept this, he turned to massage therapy to help further his recovery. The results pleased Michael so much that he earned his own massage therapist license so he could pay it forward.
At Integrity Bodyworks, Michael aims to ease pain using his expertise in trigger-point and neuromuscular therapies, as well as imbue a sense of relaxation with the long, gliding strokes of Swedish massage. He integrates hot stones for an additional fee to help melt tension and another set of hands to untie double-knotted muscles during massages.
