What do you do when the pain lingers after your bodywork session?
Sure, you are a superstar and book your weekly/bi-weekly/monthly/quarterly appointments and you feel amazing after you leave, and continue to do so for a few days after, or maybe even longer, but then, things seem to revert back to how they were. It may not be as intense, but you can see (and feel that the pain it is still there.
It’s not uncommon, actually. As I discussed in a previous post, when the body has been in a certain state for an extended period of time (pain, dysfunction, fatigue, etc) it is going to take time for the neuromuscular system and those pathways to the brain to get the message that it’s time for things to chill out and get back to what is actually normal. And no, having migraines every week for months on end or having a dull ache in your hip when you sit longer than 30 minutes is NOT normal!
Luckily, we have a solution for you….introducing our Pain Relief Pro Package!
Now, this is going to require some work on your part as well as ours, because what good is a massage and corrective bodywork when you just revert back to your old habits and posture? We are now excited to offer the following:
- (2) 30 minute bodywork sessions twice a week for 4 weeks (8 sessions total)
- 2 complimentary mobility classes
- A complimentary set of Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls (because yes, there will be homework)
Who is the Pain Relief Pro Package for?
If you have chronic pain, or an acute injury, this package is for you.
If you live/work in a high stress environment and are unable to carve out time for self care, this package is for you.
If you want to take charge of your health and be your own advocate because more ‘medical’ treatments (chiropractic, physical therapy, medications, injections, etc) are not producing the results that you are expecting, this package is for you.
If you are trying to avoid surgery, this package is for you.
I created this plan because most of my client base is repeat clients, and even when they book regularly, they are still coming in with the same issues in their tissues session after session and I want to have more time to treat the problems with less time between sessions.
I cannot promise you that we will completely eliminate the problem, but I can promise you that if you do the work along with me, you will walk away with a better understanding of how your body works and you will be armed with an arsenal of self care techniques so after your package is completed, you will be able to stop drop and roll or mobilize at a moments notice for those times in between your bodywork sessions.
And a reminder-we are now offering a superbill so you may potentially get reimbursed from your health insurance company and we accept HSA cards as well.
One final note: this is going to require commitment on your part as well. At your first appointment we will be booking all of your session appointments for the next 4 weeks. We do this for two reasons. 1) We have a schedule that books up quickly and we want to make sure you get your days/times on there. 2) It holds you accountable. It’s 30 minutes out of your day twice a week. Take a shorter lunch so you can leave work earlier, or take a late lunch so you can come in for your session. You owe it to your body to get it to its optimal potential.
In good hands,
