Medical Massage Therapy & Clinical Massage Therapy

  Anyone who experiences chronic pain understands how exhausting, frustrating and at times despairing, it is to be trapped in affliction unable to find relief. Medical massage therapy and Clinical Massage Therapy differ from the traditional spa treatment and swedish massage as it’s main goal is to heal injury and chronic pain while using western sciences such as advanced understanding in anatomy, kinesiology, biology, neurology, and physiology. The collaboration between therapist and those seeking wellness is a major key to recovery, and for this reason clients are educated and given tools which they can use to heal themselves both during and after treatment.

Chronic Pain Relief through specialized knowledge and experience

 With nearly 20 years of experience from practicing as a Licensed Massage Therapist, James Ruff uses advanced study in anatomy and physiology, structural and bio-mechanical kinesiology, neurology, the reflex systems of the tendons and ligaments and postural analysis combined with specialized stretching techniques (P.N.F./ M.A.T./ A.R.T.), trigger point therapy, acupressure, and myofascial release. In addition, having studied craniosacral, working with osteopathy, and rolfing (structural integration therapy), alongside studying Eastern modalities such as accupresure, which uses the acupuncture meridians without needles, Tui-na, Shiatsu and Reiki. Converging these sciences with the Eastern Healing Arts while following intuition that can only be developed with time and dedication to the craft, James Ruff has created a highly effective means of therapeutic work in his tenure as a clinically trained Licensed Massage Therapist.
