“Jody is literally not only the best in town, but the best in the business! I was the head athletic trainer at Bradley [University] for the last 2 years and the only massage therapist that I would use for our athletes is Jody. She is flexible and really talented with a wonderful personality. She will make you feel comfortable and you will feel amazing after the session.” Chris W. (from Yelp)
Treating Sports Injuries
Injuries and pain happen. Clinical treatment of soft tissues using neuromuscular/trigger point release therapy to quickly get the body functioning without pain is Jody’s specialty. If you are undergoing rehabilitation from a sports injury, such as IT band injuries, hamstring pulls, goin pulls, low back pain, etc., then you can benefit from massage.
Benefits of massage for injuries include:
- Remove cellular waste
- Bring blood flow to the area, which helps to heal the tissue
- Reduce trigger points
- Make muscles more pliable, which increases flexibility
