My specialties include working with clients that suffer from Sciatica and several forms of Neck and Shoulder pain. These issues are most commonly produced from sleeping awkwardly or repetitious movements that strain the muscles in that area. I refer to it as "Shoulder Sciatica" because it acts in the same ways as Sciatica does down below.
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Michael Smith. I am a licensed Massage Therapist in the Las Vegas valley. Since I began my work in 2004, I have been acquiring skills as diverse as my clients. Yearly, I continue my education, keeping up on the latest techniques and trends. All this to hone my skills in order to use the best combination of approaches that will be the most beneficial for you.
Since Covid swept the globe I believe there is a need to re-evaluate Massage and it's role in Healthcare. My goal is to create awareness of the role massage can play in a variety of healthcare venues. From working with Chiropractors, Podiatrists and Orthopedists for specific muscle work to complement their current treatment or in combination with other recovery therapies. The most common form of Massage that most everyone identifies is Relaxation Therapy.
Another aspect of my approach is to educate the public. There is a great difference between "Deep Tissue", "A Firm Massage" and "Specific" massage. Clarity in communicating your needs with the therapist is VERY important in client satisfaction. This can be the difference between getting that relaxing, yet FIRM massage and focusing on a problem area which can cause you to feel sore the next day or two in order to fix a problem area.
