In Touch Medical Massage owner Kreig Peterson has been in business in Los Alamos for five years.
“I opened my practice here to be near family and because Los Alamos is a diverse community of healthy aging clients as well as athletes who need focused massage using multiple techniques and modalities to meet their needs,” Peterson said. “I work extremely hard to give my clients the best massage they have ever had.”
Peterson works in multiple massage modalities that promote relaxation and pain relief, plus, he is the only certified medical massage therapist in town. Medical massage is focused on three main pillars: Client education, analysis/treatment and instruction to correct and maintain balance in the body.
“I am a board certified medical massage therapist and am qualified to understand and treat many causes of pain. Many people go through life experiencing muscle pain needlessly,” he said. “Medical massage is specifically designed to provide powerful pain relief for suffering clients. I also train clients how to stay out of pain or greatly reduce their pain to give them a better quality of life.”
Peterson added that he put together the best treatment team of colleagues in the business to create optimal outcomes for the client.
New modalities offered – Hawk grips – Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). IASTM uses precision made tools to break up painful adhesions in the body that form from overuse or injury. IASTM is comfortable and provides great range of motion in injured tissues. IASTM is perfect for post surgical scar management, Plantar fascitis and chronically tight necks, arms, shoulders and legs, Peterson said.
Potential benefits of massage:
- Massage, by offering a sustained, intentional, caring form of tactile stimulation, is one of the best ways to impart emotional reassurance.
- Massage helps restore calm and balance.
- Massage can relieve painful muscle tension that can sap your energy.
- Massage improves circulation and rids the body of metabolic waste products that can make you feel tired and sore.
- Massage improves appearance and increases healthy functioning of your skin.
- Movement, muscular contraction and massage therapy are the ways lymph fluid is most effectively moved throughout the body because the lymph system has no pump of its own.
- Massage can help you get back “in touch” with your body. This is especially true after a surgery or other traumatic body/mind experience.
- Massage aids in recovery from work out or muscle soreness.
- Massage feels good!
