John Estabrooks, RMT

At the end of the day, John's goal is to get people back to being active and living a fulfilled, pain-free life.

John works with everyone - pro athletes, olympians, weekend OCR warriors, moms and their kids. He believes in a healthy balanced lifestyle and as such offers a wide variety of massage types. Here they are, in John's words:

Pre/Re-Hab

Consider massage an investment in your future—fewer injuries and shorter recovery times. Self-care is probably the most overlooked but most valuable service anyone can do. As most active people know, it is only a matter of time until your body wears down and needs to recover. In some instances, it takes an injury to slow down.

Everyone has a dominant training method, and within this discipline, some certain joints and muscles take the strain. I work specifically on the trouble areas BEFORE an injury occurs. i.e., baseball pitchers use an unnatural motion that puts tremendous pressure on their shoulder and elbow—exactly how it sounds.

If you are recovering from or working through an injury, your muscles are preserving the body. I will set a roadmap of treatments and work to help the body repair the damage while ensuring all muscles are firing along the right path.

Stamina

Just like taking your car to the mechanic, you need to take your body to a mechanic. You have hundreds of moving pieces firing at different times and speeds to accomplish what the brain triggers.

These movements and strains exponentially grow when you add physical activity and training—preparing for the big race, recovering for a race, busting through a plateau, or just a weekend warrior, with maintenance muscle recover much faster and reducing the risk of injury.

Therapeutic Deep Tissue

Everyone needs a little downtime. We will work to move stale blood out of muscles to stimulate healing. We will also work to make sure all muscles are firing in the proper coordination for movement.

Injury / MVA

A reality that we all know, at one end of the spectrum or the other, is that we get injured. Whether it is a fall, a sport injury or a motor vehicle accident (MVA), no one case is the same. To reduce downtime and increase recovery, everyone can agree that you must do something—even if that means slowing down once in a while.

I won't make any magical claims that I can fix you on the spot, but I can work with you on a treatment plan that helps release tension points and ultimately reminds your muscles how to fire, not protect the injury, but function properly.
