Orthopedic Bodywork is used to treat and alleviate pain from orthopedic conditions such as low back pain, text neck, sciatica, tennis elbow, TMJ disorder, etc. Your therapist will draw from a variety of modalities, techniques, and even retraining exercises to address your specific problem. Techniques from every service that is offered at West Wellness may be used, (for example, Craniosacral, Thai Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, and more) within your comfort level. Orthopedic Bodywork is very specific and will deal with your problem areas, but that does not guarantee that it will be a painful experience, so please do not let that deter you. But, in the same vein, do expect to put some effort forward to reach your goals. Your therapist will coach your breathing and guide you through the moves, but know that you will need to remain present and communicative. This isn’t the massage for just zoning out. This is bodywork for making real progress and tangible change in your body.
When booking Orthopedic Bodywork, please take the time to be as thorough as possible in your intake form so that your therapist can prepare for you. We recommend wearing clothes like what you would wear to a yoga class: Allowing for modesty, flexibility, and comfort during freedom of movement. This also allows your therapist to more easily do a full body assessment. Please remove all watches and jewelry before the session starts. We generally recommend coming in for bodywork every 4 weeks for everyone. Your specific situation may be different, so talk with your therapist about a good treatment plan for you.
You may feel a little sore after a day or two. We recommend drinking an additional liter of high quality water to help reduce soreness. Also, avoid any foods that are high in sodium, as this can be dehydrating. Fruits are an excellent way to eat your water and they help get your lymphatic system flowing to flush out all the gunk released from this deep work.
