Massage Therapy and Acupuncture
Manual Lymph Drainage: This is a very gentle technique that stimulates the flow of lymph fluid through your lymphatic system in order to
remove waste fluids and maintain a healthy immune system. It is very effective for reduction in post-operative
swelling, as well as immune system stimulation to assist in chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue
syndrome, and Lymes Disease. The light strokes are deeply relaxing and carry therapeutic benefits for everyone.
Medical Acupuncture: Trip holds a certification in medical acupuncture. Our sessions are performed together - you will receive both
acupuncture and massage. Our experience has shown that the combination of the two therapies create a better
outcome than either one alone.
A typical session begins with a conversation, both of us talking with you about your symptoms and expectations.
Trip will leave the room to plan his treatment, and once you are comfortably on the massage table, Pam will
massage the area of concern. Her comprehensive knowledge of anatomy assists Trip in finely tuning his treatment
plan. Pam uses a medical pen to mark areas of tension that will possibly be treated during the acupuncture session.
During the acupuncture treatment, Trip places very fine needles in the area and applies a small amount of electrical
stimulation. At the same time, Pam is at a different part of your body - typically head, shoulders, hands, and/or feet -
in order to provide distraction and relaxation. The calmer you feel, the better the treatment works. The stimulation
usually lasts for approximately 20 minutes, and the needles are removed. Pam will end the session with a brief
massage to the treated area.
The entire session lasts approximately 60-90 minutes.
Lymphedema Treatment: Pam is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and is able to provide treatment for all stages of lymphedema. This
treatment is aimed at improving lymphedema with manual lymphatic drainage, compression, and exercise.
Medical Massage Therapy: Medical Massage is result oriented and the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been
diagnosed and prescribed by a physician. Common conditions we treat are chronic knee pain, chronic back pain,
plantar fasciitis, headaches, and rotator cuff injuries, and target-specific soft tissue injury.
Massage Therapy: Therapeutic massage, tailored to your specific needs. Areas of tension will be addressed, and you will leave feeling both
refreshed and relaxed. Specific modalities include Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, and myofascial release.
Pain and Wellness Counseling: As part of each visit, we take time and effort to talk to you about your immediate needs, how your pain is
impacting the quality of your life, and help you create a path forward. We also provide education and self-
care techniques you can use at home between treatments. Although Trip is a medical doctor, he will not act
as a primary physician, but purely a medical acupuncturist.
Chair Massage: Offered by the hour with a 3 hour minimum. Perfect for the corporate setting to increase employee satisfaction and
productivity, and to promote wellness. While seated on a padded, ergonomically designed chair, the therapist applies
compression to the head, neck, shoulders, back, and arms. Each session lasts 10-15 minutes, and 4-5 people can be seen
