I found Pennington Massage by Groupon Now. My arms were sore from doing a bunch of yard work and so I just wanted someone, anyone to massage them for a bit. When I walked in the door and met Todd he took one look at me and said your neck is bothering you, isnt it? My neck has hurt for years and I have had countless of massages and chiropractic treatments getting pretty good relief. Well, Todd runs the business with his wife who is a massage therapist and her speciality is lymph drainage~ great for anyone who has cancer, especially mastectomies! But I have not used her.
Anyways, Todd has this technique called Controlled Muscle Massage. It is not a feel good type of massage. It is the kind that gets to the problem area and loosens up the knots and fascia so the spine can realign itself. It is the best massage I have ever gotten as it has taken care of my chronic tight, out of whack neck. It hurt to have it done at times but I needed it and I feel so much better for it. Todd is a talker so it is not a relaxing kind of massage but what he does is get feedback from you and he wants you to feel the difference when your body responds so he has you moving your head or getting off the table to feel the difference.
My Mom and my best friend have gone to him multiple times and love what he is able to do for your very tight muscles. So go to him if you are athletic and need a sport massage or just need to have your tight muscles loosen up a bit. Know that this is NOT a spa experience but more like a medical massage. I only wished I had found him sooner! One good thing is you can have your doctor order and insurance can pay for this. I am so glad I found him by accident on Groupon! Thanks Todd!
