BodyWorks w/ Mike Coffey LMT

Are you in pain?
If you are going to a therapist and keep going back for relief, it’s not working.

I've been working in this field since the 90s. I have trained in a wide variety of therapies including massage, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, deep tissue bodywork, reflexology and active isolated stretching, I have spent many years developing an integrated technique and unique philosophy of pain relief.
I can get you pain free, with more flexibility more stability and more balance in a very short amount of time, with long lasting relief.

I also work with an array of conditions including:

• Spinal pain and injuries (e.g. disc prolapse)
• Headaches
• Sports injuries (e.g. ligament tears)
• Fractures (e.g. broken arm)
• Musculoskeletal problems (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome)
• Post-surgical rehabilitation (e.g. following a knee replacement)
• Biomechanical problems (e.g. “flat feet”)
• Arthritic conditions (e.g. osteoarthritis)
• Neurological disorders and diseases (e.g. stroke)
• Cardiothoracic conditions (e.g. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders)
• Pediatric conditions (e.g. cerebral palsy)

This is just to name a few.

I am extensively trained in manual therapy which means I am “hands on” with my clients. This may include massage and joint mobilization and manipulation, as well as muscle stretching which we achieve using a wide variety of techniques. To complement manual skills, I sometimes make use of different modalities to reduce pain and inflammation including Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) Active Release Techniques (ART) Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) and trigger point therapy is also widely practiced. AIS practitioners are highly trained in exercise prescription and often give clients exercises to do at home to help resolve their conditions.

There are several other benefits that occur by using AIS.
Because your brain and nervous system are engaged in every movement, there is neuromuscular re-education occurring as the repetitions are done. Every time a new range of motion is achieved, new neural pathways are produced.

For athletes, Power= Strength + Flexibility + Time.
A muscle cannot be trained to its end range if maximum range of motion is not achieved. By using repetitions, great amounts of lymph are moved through your body. This is of great benefit in wound and injury healing, as well as detoxification of your body.

Additionally, the benefits of AIS can result in an enhanced immune system, as well as improved feeling of well-being because of increased flexibility.

There are many reasons to be, or become flexible. Your daily activities will be enhanced by having a more supple, movable body. Personally, I find it to be the most critical aspect of well-being. If you cannot move well, all activities, fitness endeavors, strength training, and general health can be compromised.

If you have any of the injuries or conditions listed above, a consultation with BodyWorks is a step in the right direction!
