Frehner will be working at Roots Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and fills up the rest of his week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, at a salon in Hurricane, Utah. He said hed like to make Roots a full time gig, five or six days a week. Im licensed in both Nevada and Utah and I am one of the rare independent contractors of message therapy, Frehner said.

O.C. massage therapist accused of sexually assaulting clients

Many studies are insufficient to conclusively support or refute benefits of massage specific to sport (mostly due to lack of quality research), however there are still many noted benefits to massage therapy. The most obvious would be treatment of various conditions that may inhibit a runner/walker’s ability to participate, such as, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, ili-otibial band syndrome (ITBS), and shin splints. Specific to the day of their event, runners/ walkers often report feeling more supple and flexible, stimulating or “waking up” the targeted muscle groups, as well as an increased range of motion (ROM). Benefits may also include a psychological effect (ie. feeling better psychologically may result in better performance). Massage has been shown to have the most benefit especially when performed in combination with proper warm-up and stretching. Q: When is the best time to get a massage? (How close to my run/walk) A: Massage therapy can be provided both pre-event (ie. before your run/walk) and post-event, depending on your specific needs and goals. For example, pre-event massage may be used immediately before an event to stimulate targeted areas and assist ROM. Post-event massage may be used to reduce muscle soreness associated with DOMS (delayed onset muscles soreness) and feeling of fatigue. Some studies suggest the best effect is when the massage is given within two hours after the activity.

Everett chiropractors Dr. Mike and Lisa Ilyankoff announced that a new licensed massage therapist has joined their practice, Cornerstone Chiropractic. Lisa has over eight years of experience providing deep tissue massage therapy to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches and car accident injuries, including whiplash. Deep tissue massage therapy is also effective for managing pain associated with chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and sciatica. “We are excited to welcome our newest massage therapist to Cornerstone Chiropractic,” said Dr. Lisa Ilyankoff. “Massage therapy is a natural complement to chiropractic adjustments, providing enhanced pain relief by releasing tension trapped deep within the muscles and the body’s connective tissues. Massaging sore and tight muscles is essential to relieving pain and speeding the injury rehabilitation process.” Massage improves circulation, delivering fresh, oxygen-rich blood to the muscles. This flushes out toxins and lactic acid from the muscles, which helps the body heal faster after injury.
