Orthopedic Massage is specifically designed to facilitate recovery from soft tissue injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscles and even fascia (connective tissue). This treatment includes the assessment of the injury through orthopedic testing and the frictioning of the injured site in order to break up adhesive scar tissue formation.

Following movement therapy is an integral part of the combined effort to promote healing in the presence of full range of motion.  Bernd has experienced this form of therapy first hand after an injury to his ankle and has made him a firm believer in this healing art.  If you suffer from acute or chronic pain, Orthopedic Massage may be an alternative holistic solution.
