Going to Great Pains

For those who suffer from persistent aches or chronic pain, the search for relief can be an exhausting and “painful” experience.

  • Did your session at a massage spa alleviate your discomfort temporarily?
  • Have you visited a Chiropractic Clinic in search of pain relief but felt you needed to see them again the next day?
  • After receiving Physical Therapy, were you unable to achieve the pain recovery you hoped for?
  • Does it seem like the only solution your Physician offers is more pain medication?

The staff at Hands On Healing has over 25 years of combined experience and are fully capable of providing “traditional” massage therapy.

But for the treatment of chronic pain, did you know there are alternative, more effective treatments?

Treating Pain Symptoms vs. Causes

There is always a cause to pain.

Those who suffer from pain and discomfort are often confused about the difference between treating the symptoms of pain and treating its underlying causes.

When healthcare providers treat pain symptoms, relief is often evasive, partially effective at best, and short lived.

At Hands On Healing, our therapists are specially trained and certified in the area of pain management. Our approach to providing pain relief focuses on treating the causes, not only the symptoms.

Our philosophy and therapeutic approach is to make the greatest impact on your body.

Permanent Solutions for Pain

Hands On Healing offers a variety of modalities consisting of physical manipulation and assessment tools designed to provide the greatest impact on your body.

Our goal is to make you feel better AND stay better by providing long lasting relief.

Our approach to managing pain is NOT “protocol driven” (or cookie-cutter). We custom tailor our therapeutic sessions for each client’s individual needs.
