Osteo-Myo Massage

Located in Portland, Oregon – Brandon Ellis, LMT #12645 is offering Osteo-Myo Massage!

Osteo-Myo Massage is the blending of two incredible healing modalities – Musculo-Skeletal Manipulation and Massage.

Musculo-Skeletal Manipulation is a practice that emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function of the body and recognizes the body’s ability to heal itself; and it is the role of the practitioner to facilitate that process.  It involves very advanced strengthening and stretching techniques to balance a previously unbalanced structure. It includes assessment of the body, to find the imbalances, and advanced techniques, to put those imbalances back into balance. When a body finds its way back into balance, either by manipulation of on its own, dysfunctions and chronic aches/pains drastically alleviate.

Massage, according to Wikipedia, is “is the working of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massage).

Blended together, it’s called “Osteo-Myo Massage”.

“Osteo” means “bone” and “Myo” means “Muscle”.  The combination of Osteo-Myo Massage allows the therapist to work on the whole body, from fascia to bones to muscles to the nervous system.  It affects the circulatory and lymphatic system in a very positive way.  It balances all the systems of the body to provide improved health, increased mobility, and overall well being.

I offer 60 minute and 90 minute Osteo-Myo Massage sessions. The 90 minute session  is recommended.  It includes:

  • Assessing the client’s complaints, aches, and pains
  • Assessing the client’s body in order to find the source of the issue
  • Educating the client as to what, why, and how the ‘out of balance’ is occurring in their body
  • Using Osteo-Myo Massage techniques, such as Musculo-Skeletal Manipulation (Stretching, Strengthening, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Muscle Energy Techniques and Breath Work), Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Swedish Massage, to alleviate or eliminate the issue
  • Re-assessing to see if balance of the body is achieved
  • Educating the client on how to “stay” in balance
  • Recognizing that the body has an amazing ability to heal itself and that the main role of the therapist is to facilitate the process
