HealthWise Therapeutic Massage LLC is a home based business run by Massage Therapist Gwen Sargent. I’ve been massaging since 2005 and started HealthWise Therapeutic Massage LLC in 2010. Helping people reduce if not eliminate pain in a drug free non-surgical way is the reason I became interested in Massage Therapy.
I partner with my clients to find their sources of pain (often more than one) and/or dysfunction in order to best manage the condition, if not free them of it when possible. This is done through the various massages techniques I have learned over the years, educating the client or giving home exercises such as stretches or range of motion exercises when necessary.
People with headaches at the base of the skull often have “trigger points” or “tight spots” in the lower portion of the trapezius. The trapezius is a beautiful muscle that starts around the base of the skull, drapes down and across the shoulders to end 2/3rds of the way down the back on either side of the spine. Doing compressions in the area around and just below mid-back when headaches occur can often reduce or get rid of this type of headache. Compressions can be done by using a tennis ball against a wall just don’t go over your spine when doing that.
My goal is to get the client back to their full range of motion pain-free; and assist with stress reduction as well as bring an all over sense of well-being.
