A: Muscular therapy is the specific form of training that I was certified in when I attended the Muscular Therapy Institute. MT can be divided into four parts:
1. Deep Massage
2. Tension-Release Exercise
3. Body-Care techniques
4. Postural Realignment
Developed by Dr. Ben E. Benjamin (view his Bio with this link http://www.benbenjamin.com/ben.html), Muscular Therapy is a comprehensive manual approach for coping with everyday tension and alleviating muscular pain through body re-education.
A: This really will depend on what your expectations of the treatment are. When you are experiencing chronic pain and are looking to get to the root of the problem, Muscular Therapy would be my recommendation.
Muscular Therapy is a well rounded treatment that really includes all of the above in addition to instruction on self care and tension release exercises. When you arrive to your appointment, discuss in detail, your current level of pain so that I can custom tailor your treatment for you. Because of my experience and advanced training, I am able to integrate a multitude of modalities in order to optimize your massage treatment.
A: If you’ve had a sudden or “acute” injury, it would be best to allow between 48-72 hours before coming in for treatment. Remember in these instances that “Ice is Nice” and that applying heat can have just the opposite effect when applied to acute injuries.
If you have any acute contagious infections such as cellulitis with MRSA or ringworm for example. Once you have completed a course of antibiotics or the rash has cleared you can resume massage.
If you are sick you should rest and reschedule, especially if you suspect you may have a fever. Having a massage in this condition may rapidly worsen your symptoms and could possibly spike your fever! Also, now with Covid 19, you must complete an additional screening intake form prior to your session.
Important Note: If you arrive to your appointment and it is clear you should not be having massage because of a medically-related condition, your appointment will be rescheduled. Please call me in advance if you are unsure of whether to keep your appointment or reschedule it. Always better to be safe and cautious, especially with the current state of public health we are experiencing.
Q: Where is Muscular Therapy Solutions located?
A: The address is 33 Putnam Street, Milford NH. Here is a google maps link to put into your GPS: https://goo.gl/maps/aLANoE4awqeiP1tM7
The building is located right off the Milford Oval, directly across the street from the Olde Kilkenny Pub on 30 Middle Street. Signage on building is in the process of being changed(was formerly “Woodward Hynosis and Psychotherapy” building). Entrance to the space is the left door. Parking is free in the side lot.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: At this time, I do not accept insurance. If you have been in a motor vehicle accident or are receiving massage for a workmans compensation accident, I can work with you to provide the necessary documentation for reimbursement. However, bear in mind that is will initially be an out-of-pocket expense. I am in the process of setting up an arrangement with a payment company that allows you to pay by installments in order to make regular treatment more budget friendly.
Q: What is your cancellation policy? 24 hours advance notice. No shows and appointments cancelled within 24 hours will be charged the full amount of the massage(unless it’s snow related, or some type of family emergency) and must be paid for prior to booking subsequent appointments.
