Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that's mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Myoskeletal Alignment

Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques (MAT) is a unique blend of myofascial release, osteopathic techniques, Golgi tendon work, articular stretching technique, and muscle energy techniques. Bones and joints are held together by soft tissue, which includes myofascia (muscle and fascia), ligaments and tendons.

Cupping Methods

Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction may facilitate healing with blood flow.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

MLD is a light, skin stretching massage that helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid out of the swollen limb. It should not be confused with a traditional massage you may receive at a spa. MLD is specifically focused on the lymph vessels to help the flow of lymphatic fluid.

Sports Manual Therapy

Sports massage is manual manipulation of the muscles geared specifically toward helping people who have physically demanding lifestyles and/or hobbies. This kind of therapeutic massage considers the impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups.

Functional Movement Screening

A Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a series of standardized tests used to assess a worker's functional and fundamental movement patterns. This type of functional assessment can be used to highlight an individual's potential risk of sustaining a musculoskeletal disorder.

Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping is one specific mode of treatment that your physical therapist may use. It involves placing strips of special tape on your body in specific directions to help improve your mobility and support your joints, muscles, and tendons.

SFMA screening

The Selective Functional Movement Assessmnet (SFMA) was developed by Gray Cook and colleagues, the same group who developed the Functional Movement Systems. The SFMA is meant to be used in a diagnostic capacity for musculoskeletal assessment when pain is present. The SFMA is a clinical model used to assist diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders by identifying dysfunctions in movement patterns.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Truly perfect.
by Sophia on Mar 21
Jay took the time to help me understand how to help myself. He always made sure the pressure was good. He was in tune with the pain points in my body. It was the most amazing massage of my life.
by Nichole on Mar 03
He did an assessment to determine and discuss problem areas so we could decide together what the plan of care would be, then followed up after the session with more tips and suggestions
by Christina on Feb 20
The therapist seemed professional, knowledgeable, and was a great listener.

Super professional and efficient.

Jay was phenomenal. I have been getting regular massages for 20 years but just recently moved to this area. I am SO glad this is where I picked for my first massage in this area. I have never had a massage this good. Not just a "feel-good" massage but one that addressed MY issues. Complete with a pre-massage assessment to know what areas needed work. So many vertebra came unstuck and so many joints loosened up during the massage. It was like have the best chiropractor you've ever had give you the best therapeutic massage you've ever had. I decided I must have a membership.

Life seems to have that knowledgeable touch. After talking with him on my aches and pain, he surveys what's not working and he goes to work.

Jay always goes over any problems that his clients are having and targets those issues. It is so important to him that you are not experiencing pain, but he is able to really get to the root of the problem and provide relief.

I had a great experience with Life Rx - we had an open dialogue about what was bothering me and I felt very listened to, with almost a diagnostic approach to where the pain may come from, what I could improve in posture and/or strengthening that could help, and how everything is connected. The massage was at times very targeted, which I appreciated a lot, and I learned a lot about my body and alignment that I didn't know. Will absolutely be returning for additional sessions.
