Expand your normal range of motion and comfort with orthopedic massage
Detailed work for sensitive and painful conditions.
Enhance your recovery, decrease pain and increase mobility following an acute injury or chronic condition by targeting the tissues and muscles surrounding your joints.
Orthopedic massage addresses many common conditions including:
Head off this disabling condition as soon as you can! Inflammation of the median nerve can be persistent. We will work together to reduce tension in arm flexors/extensors and hand muscles. Carpal tunnel treatment also includes a comprehensive approach from hands to shoulder and neck.
Don’t let elbow pain keep you from doing what you love. My targeted treatment of elbow, forearm and hand conditions addresses muscles of both sides of the forearm as well as the hand.
This unique condition requires a graded approach that does not challenge your pain. Working slowly and developing a mutual trust is key. With gentle orthopedic techniques, movement and communication, we will gradually address adhesed tissue and unlock movement.
Nerve pain in the front of your shoulder? Does it extend down your arm? You may be experiencing Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS). Address TOS immediately with an orthopedic massage that focuses on the three potential areas of nerve impingement: scalenes, clavicle or pec minor. Massage in combination with at-home stretches is an established and effective treatment for TOS, and will help alleviate this condition..
Pain in the Achilles area can be the result of a true tendinopathy (irritation of the sheath around the tendon) and can be exacerbated by tight calf muscles and plantar fascia. I provide a complete treatment of foot and calf tissue (and beyond if necessary), as well as a detailed treatment of the tendon itself to address tendon glide and any adhesions that may be present.
Pain in your heel keeping you off your feet? Recovery from true plantar fasciitis can be a long process. A targeted orthopedic treatment addressing connective tissue and muscles in the foot, along with calves, may help improve movement and get you back on your feet.
Sam is the real deal. He's a savior. He has a huge wealth of experience in solving stubborn sports-related issues. I have a recurring shoulder problem that causes me both limited mobility and pain. Sam is like a skilled mechanic, "tuning up" my shoulder so that I can move my right arm without pain. I feel comfortable referring friends to Sam.
Great communication, excellent massage therapist. I came to him with my back in so much pain I couldn't walk and left after one hour feeling completely fine. He's really great, highly recommend!
I started seeing Sam Farnsworth, he was recommended by a mutual friend, for a shoulder pain and after 4 sessions I have felt massive improvement!! He’s very nice and knowledgeable. Listens to your description of the tight spots / pain points and works the entire muscle groups. I have left every session feeling better and have found the relief lasting longer after each visit, he also gives great at home pointers and exercises you can do in order to keep making progress. Very responsive and a great communicator. Comfortable treatment space and COVID responsible.
