What is Orthopedic Massage?

Hendrickson Method™ Orthopedic Massage is an advanced form of orthopedic therapy that integrates a number of dynamic techniques, including massage, manual therapy, joint and soft tissue mobilization, and neuromuscular re-education.  HM sessions are designed to be deep yet relaxing; while non-invasive and gentle, they are therapeutically effective, offering clients’ pain relief and functional rehabilitation.  Everyone can benefit from these profound sessions, whether you suffer from common orthopedic conditions (either acute or chronic), or are looking for relaxation, health maintenance or optimal athletic performance.

One of the hallmarks of Hendrickson Method Orthopedic massage is a signature massage stroke developed by Dr. Hendrickson called wave mobilization™.   This unique stroke includes a gentle oscillating rhythm that mimics ocean waves.  HM strokes are performed in movements developed out of a Tai Chi tradition; Sarah is able to conserve and direct healing energy in a relaxed and comfortable way, which translates to her clients. Her sessions are powerful and effective, maximizing results.
