Relieve Chronic Foot Pain with Massage Therapy

Walnut Creek Sports MassageI am constantly amazed by the results and accomplishments our clients make. From triathlons and other athletic achievements to just gaining a little more range of motion after being in pain for years.

Pushing our bodies past their current comfort zone with exercise, massage, or stretching is never easy. It challenges us emotionally, physically, and mentally. I am privileged to be in a profession that allows me to be part of each clients story of accomplishment that arrives at my table. Here is one of our recent
successes.

Kelly Barry was referred to Loosen up Bodywork for pain and tension from running and cycling. During his intake he mentioned he had been experiencing foot pain for over 10 years which he assumed was never going to go away and he had just learned to live with. He was open to trying anything that may give him some relief so I suggested a reflexology treatment. After just one session, Kelly reported complete relief from his stubborn foot pain.

That initial session was almost a year ago now and Kelly has maintained his running and cycling pain free ever since. He continues to schedule maintenance treatments monthly to make sure that it never gets to that point again. He and his wife keep up an above average exercise routine including marathons and bike races with confidence that they won’t ever have to guess about their pains again.
