Welcome to the website for
Tom Pettengill Massage!!!!
What I do during a therapeutic massage session:
1) 1st of all, you will be wearing your clothes - so you can feel relaxed and comfortable as I work through your clothing.
2) I do therapeutic massage that helps to correct physical imbalances, relieve pain, and realign muscles so they perform better. This is all done thru a muscular re-education technique that is fascinatingly effective!
3) I can educate you about your own body regarding correct posture and movement suggestions, and we can look at anatomy books for visual learning. Your education about your own body is the best way for you to get better and for you to heal yourself in the long term!!
I practice a therapeutic style massage that evaluates pain and dysfunction of soft tissue in the body. This method can help restore fluid movement while reducing pain. An important part of my work is YOUR INVOLVEMENT. The more you can be aware and tuned into your body during each session we have, the better your results will be!! I can help you to relax but then you have to help yourself to release. During all our sessions, you will be fully clothed. For your best results, it is important that you stay aware of your body during our session and, afterwards, be actively involved in your own healing process. After all, you are your best healer!
