Therapeutic Orthopedic Deep Tissue Massage (T.O.M.) is an advanced style of bodywork that involves functional assessment tests that determine most orthopedic conditions and outline a treatment plan using multiple modalities, combining massage strokes, Shiatsu, joints & soft tissue mobilization and manual resistive techniques. This type of therapeutic massage can release chronic tension and restore balance and wellness. Some of the more common issues that treated with T.O.M. are chronic low back, neck, and shoulder pain, nerve entrapments, repetitive strain injuries, ligament sprains, and acute injuries resulting from sports or auto accidents. While T.O.M. addresses specific issues and sessions typically focus on specific problem areas, many clients enjoy this type of massage for relaxation and health maintenance.
