Why Your Low Back Pain Could Be Coming From Your Butt

Why Your Low Back Pain Could Be Coming From Your Butt

Dana Tavares 4/19/2018 One of the first things I was taught in massage school was not to simply focus on where our patients felt their pain as it could very well be originating from another area altogether. And if we were to focus just where they felt their pain we would likely only provide temporary relief instead of completely resolving their issue. Though this is a very broad and complex subject however I will attempt to keep this simple and show why this is important for you, as well as your therapist, to know. Most people come to me...

Do You Need Vitamins and Supplements Part 1

Do you need vitamins and nutritional supplements? Ideally no, however the short answer to this question is, for most people I believe yes. We would not need vitamins and nutritional supplements if the following conditions are consistently met: you have access to, and regularly eat, a balanced whole foods diet that includes a full range of nutrients(preferably organic) in balanced quantities, daily, year round that includes a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats & oils specific to your own unique genetic metabolic requirements. you...

New Energy Snack Available At TLC

Introducing Battenkill Brittle & Crumble High Energy Snack and Breakfast   I’ve often wanted a healthy snack option for my clients after their massage therapy session. Many people can relate to feeling a bit ungrounded after their massage, and rightfully so. During a massage treatment we move a lot of energy around, get oxygen, blood, and circulation moving, loosen tight muscle groups that actually shift posture and balance (for the better of course). Why wouldn’t someone feel a bit ungrounded. Then you need to drive home, make dinner,...

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Posted by on June 11, 2016 in Massage | 0 comments

As many of you know, I’ve worked along with chiropractic doctors for over a decade. I can’t tell you how many patients I’ve worked with, in combination with chiropractic care, that had already gone the gamut of pain medications, muscle relaxers, anti inflammatory drugs, even surgery, and still had chronic pain with restricted mobility, and did not see significant results until beginning chiropractic and massage therapies. Often times drugs and surgery add further layers of pain and secondary health issues such as gut...

What Can I Do For You Today?

    Very broadly speaking, I provide 4 categories/levels of care; General Wellness Care, Acute Care, Corrective/Restorative Care, and Maintenance Care. Each person is unique and requires a unique approach. And even as such, each individual may have different needs at each new session. Thus, I start each encounter with “What Can I Do For You Today”? I want to know what has brought you in today. If it is an ongoing issue, I want to know what has worked and what has not worked with everything you have done and tried, with  your last...
