CLINICAL MASSAGE

Each session involve clinical reasoning to hone in on the “what” and “why” of your soft tissue pain/injury and then application of the appropriate techniques to reduce your pain and allow you to move with ease.

  • First, I do an assessment (initial session includes an in-depth assessment, follow-up sessions generally include an abbreviated assessment), that can include the following:

    • A postural analysis to see if postural misalignment is feeding into your tension and pain;

    • Testing to see if I treat the muscle strain or other tissue sprain;
  • Next, I apply the best massage techniques to help reduce the restriction and pain for easier and painless movement;

  • Then, when appropriate, I send you home with self care movement and stretching techniques to ensure your treatment outcomes are long lasting.

MORE MOTION, LESS PAIN

This integrative session works on your specific issues (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, migraines). This can be a long-term condition or a recent issue (e.g., strain, stress).

This is how it works:

  • As part of the assessment, I do functional muscle testing to see if tight or hyperactive muscles are compensating for other weak or injured muscles
  • Then I apply the best massage techniques to help reduce the restriction and pain for easier and painless movement.
  • Then, when appropriate, I send you home with self-care movement and stretching techniques to ensure your treatment outcomes are long lasting.

LASER FOCUSED – HEAD, NECK AND SHOULDER SESSION

Spending hours at a desk or on the computer, we tend to hold our head and shoulders forward, which means our neck muscles and upper and middle shoulders have to work extra hard to keep us upright. No wonder they often feel tight and strained at the end of the day! This special massage treatment focuses on the upper back, neck, shoulders, and chest to tonify the muscles that have become weak from being overstretched, as well as lengthen and relax the muscles that have been shortened and cramped. It alleviates neck and shoulder pain and helps improve posture and balance as you become more aligned.

***My clients tell me that I am especially excellent in this area!***

Here’s how it works:

  • First, I’ll look at any postural misalignment which might be feeding into your tension and pain.
  • I’ll do functional muscle testing to see if the tight or hyperactive muscles are compensating for other weak or injured muscles.
  • Then I apply the most appropriate techniques to help reduce tension in your head, neck, shoulders and upper back.
  • Finally, when appropriate, I send you home with self care movement and stretching techniques to ensure your treatment outcomes are long lasting.

PRICE POINT-
Initial Session – Consultation & Hands on Time – about 1.5 hours – $128.00

NEURAL RESET™ OF THE UPPER BODY

This is a process of sending various stimuli to the central nervous system to release muscle tension and pain within seconds.  NRT is a totally new approach to get the brain to send the proper message to the muscles to tell it to not be tight.  NRT quickly releases muscle tension and pain within seconds.  Great for those who do not want a massage, who want to remain clothed and in and out in less than 1 hour.  Click here for more information on Neural Reset Therapy.
  • You’ll be clothed on the massage table, and no lubricants are used.
  • NRT is a hands on process, but it is not massage because there is no manual manipulation of the muscles.  But it is an effective method to reduce muscular pain and tension.
  • I apply one or several methods of NRT to optimally reduce the tension and pain in the muscles.
  • Then, when appropriate, I send you home with self-care movement and stretching techniques to ensure your treatment outcomes are long lasting.

PRICE POINT-
Upper Body Reset Only- 30 to 45 minutes – $65.00

My Satisfaction Guarantee:

If within the 1st half hour of your treatment session, you’re not happy, you can end the session and owe nothing.

(Talk about “try before you buy!” Don’t worry, I’ll make sure you’re more than happy with your massage!)

What’s included in each and every massage:

Knowledge. I love being able to put on my thinking cap to assess why someone has their particular pain or injury and deciding how best to help them get over this problem. I am constantly adding more tools and skills to my arsenal to quickly and effectively provide pain relief for each of you.

Personal Guidance.I am your guide on this journey, and you’ll be comforted by the consistency of working with the same caring, knowledgeable practitioner every time you come in, instead of being bounced around to a different provider like you are in larger offices.

(And even better, there’s no need to wait for a doctor’s referral to be seen!)

Transformation. While I am intuitively good at what I do, it’s not just about the techniques I offer, but how I use my clinical reasoning skills to evaluate and come up with the appropriate treatments that actually helps you reach your goals.

Here’s how this works:

  • You’ll start by calling me at (210) 705-0644 schedule your appointment. Telephone scheduling allows you to tell me what your needs are so I can figure out if we’re a good fit.
  • If we’re a good fit, we’ll schedule our first massage session during the call.
  • After our call, you’ll get an email with the intake form for you to fill out prior to our first massage session.
  • You can either bring your intake form with you to your first session, or email it to me in advance.
  • Then, we’ll have our initial consultation and massage session, and your journey to pain freedom will begin! 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What will my first massage with you be like, Vikki?

During the initial session, we’ll run through your health history, and I’ll interview you to determine your needs. It’s important for me to understand if you’re here to treat a musculoskeletal condition or if this is a wellness massage.

Then I’ll do your assessment, including the health history questions, observations, palpation (light touch on keys joints and structures) and orthopedic testing.

This assessment helps me design a session that will both help you with your musculoskeletal problem and enhance your current level of wellness.

After the session, I accept payment and suggest post-treatment self care for a happier and healthier you!

Q: Are these massage sessions like a pampering “self care” treatment without a personalized approach?

Good question! I know you’re coming to me for real results, not just my relaxing atmosphere and soothing music. While not located in a clinic, my treatments are results-oriented and highly technical. This isn’t just your average massage. This is the real deal, and so are my client’s results.

Q: I’m not sure if I can afford massage on a regular basis, do you offer any discounts or packages?

I can’t put a price tag on your healthier, pain-free body, but I do want you to feel totally confident in the investment you’re making with me to improve your health!

When you buy a package of 4 hands-on 1 hour treatments, you save $5 on each session price.

Q:  Where is your office located, and where should I park?

My massage practice is located in a residential San Antonio neighborhood, with plenty of street and driveway parking. After you park, you’ll walk up the flagstone path, and once you step inside you can help yourself to a snack in my waiting area if I’m still in session with another client. You’ll enjoy the quiet, bright space to read if you arrive early and I am still in session.

“I should tell you … by the time I left I was much better and not really in pain. I am doing good now … Thank you so much for your expertise!” -Marguerite B.

I’d love to work with you if:

  • You’ve decided it’s finally time to care for yourself and your health, and you’re ready to commit the time to yourself and this process.
  • You’re willing to work through a difficult workout to see results, so it’s nothing new to you when a more specialized session with me produces amazing results for your mobility AND reduces your pain.
  • You want natural options for pain relief, but you want someone to back up the treatment approach with the research as well.

We won’t be a good fit if:

  • You’re looking for a quick-fix or a pill that will take your pain away without investing in the process.
  • You believe that only the deepest and heaviest amount of pressure means you’re getting a good massage.
  • You are not accustomed to ( or willing to potentially) experience some post massage soreness.

Ready to finally finally break out of the “good enough” mindset and find real pain relief?

I’ll be here, ready to partner with you in creating a life you’ll live and a body that loves you back.

Are you wondering what happens if you click that red button right up there and schedule a massage with me?

I’m so glad you asked! We’ll hash out all the details of what you’re looking for over the phone first to make sure we’re a good fit, and then you’ll come in for your first session with me!

(To ensure mutual respect and trust, an initial interview by phone will be conducted with all prospective clients. I provide non-sexual, non-sensual massage therapy and bodywork.)
