Wheaton Medical Center, a family health clinic that specializes in preventive medicine, helps patients manage stress and chronic pain with custom therapeutic massages. During each 55-minute knead-a-thon, a licensed massage therapist tailors Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue strokes to each client’s needs after measuring their inseams and conducting a pre-massage chat.
Swedish massage blankets the top layer of muscle tissue with gentle taps and long, flowing strokes, and deep-tissue techniques unravel knots in subdermal strata of sinew. The massage therapist can focus on specific concerns, such as stiff backs or sore shoulders, through neuromuscular re-education designed to retrain nerves that inhibit muscles from moving freely during everyday activities. In addition to calming tissue tantrums, the newly remodeled office accommodates clients’ cars and shipwrecked houseboats in free parking spaces located near the building.
Wheaton Medical Center
Helmed by a trio of doctors—Dr. Greenspan, Dr. Haeffele, and Dr. Laima—Wheaton Medical Center keeps a well-trained eye on patient health with services that range from vaccines and physicals to minor surgical procedures and blood tests. The center's staff of massage therapists draw on their medical training in neuromuscular re-education to tailor each massage to target clients' specific problem areas and sore spots with a combination of Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu techniques. Designed to help heal soft-tissue injuries, neuromuscular re-education helps reteach proper balance and range of motion to muscles led astray by chronically truant fascia.
