Medical Massage By Michelle
My Name is Michelle Barlow.
I received my license from the Ohio State Medical Board for Massage Therapy in January 2012. My education background includes 750 credit hours at the Dayton School of Medical Massage, as well as extra education in Rapid- Neurofascial Reset (deep fascia work)
Voila (Structual Joint Balancing), Primal Reflex Release Techniques (PRRT), NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) & Myoskeletal alignment. My training allows me to help customers with chronic pain and problems that other doctors or chiropractors have not been able to help relieve. Low back pain, shoulder pain, scoliosis, sciatica, as well as chronic neck pain, can many times be relieved using Rapid, Voila and breathing techniques along with NKT muscles testing. The other techniques I offer include deep tissue massage, relaxation massage, and side lying massage (pregnancy) techniques.
In April 2015 I had the privlage of training with Joel Crandall from Los Angeles in learning his crainal technique that has an amazing ability to eliminate pain in a few minutes instead of a few sessions. This modality has changed the way I approach my treatment plans for each client. It's an assesment and treatment plan like no other I have ever learned before. This work is painless and effective. Please see the tab for VOILA" and visit Joel Crandall's( http://www.physiocarecenter.com/) web page for more info.
In March and September of 2013 I had the opportunity to attend classes in NeuroKinetic Therapy. I am currently Level 2 certified. Also in 2014 I have had the privilege of assisting Dr. Kathy Dooley from New York in teaching 3 neurokinetic classes. The information and knowledge I have gained from working with this talented chiropractor and anatomist has completely changed the way I approach helping clients become pain free. The NKT style of massage and muscle re-connection allows me to test muscles and help those who have chronic pain and acute pain. It seems like magic- though it really is just reminding the brain to send the signals to the correct muscles so that the pain just disappears. I love being able to alleviate, or at least lessen, my clients' pain before they leave my office.
My company is based on the belief that my customers' needs are of the utmost importance. I continually expand my education yearly with only the best classes that allow me to offer more information and the latest techniques to my clients. I am not just a lotion application therapist. My education keeps my office busy and clients loyal. I am committed to meeting the needs of my clients, while offering education and techniques you won't find in other offices in town. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.
I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and provide you the best massage in the industry, tailored just for you. I thank God every day that I get to share my passion and education for therapeutic body work with each client. I truly do appreciate my clients, and I hope it shows in the work I provide.
