The benefits of therapeutic massage have been known for thousands of years. They include increased circulation, flexibility, relief of pain, and relaxation. At Health From Within we offer Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release and Cranio-sacral Therapy.
At Health From Within, we have two Massage Therapist that schedule out of our office to help with patients needs. While therapeutic massage is often relaxing, the end goal of the session or series of sessions is not relaxation. Therapeutic goals can vary considerably between patients and even massages on the same patient. The massage at our Dublin clinic may be performed as part of a larger treatment plan. For example, someone seeking therapy for an injury might have regular therapeutic massage to:
Improve muscle tone
Stabilize the chiropractic adjustment
People may also use therapeutic massage as a standalone treatment. Some people receive massage regularly to keep themselves in good physical condition. Massage may also be used as part of a general wellness program. Those who work at a desk may use massage for general stress relief and to ward off neck, back, and arm pain. Those who have jobs that are strenuous on the body may want to keep their muscles loose, strong, and flexible.
People of all ages can benefit from therapeutic massage when it is performed by a competent and fully qualified practitioner. Massage is also suitable for people with disabilities, expecting mothers, and people in treatment for medical conditions. Special precautions may need to be taken to protect the health of the patient. As always, you can consult your medical care providers to learn if there are any contraindications to receiving a massage.

John Wise: 614-395-9369
John Wise PT, MAT, LMT is a physical therapist and licensed massage therapist working in a cash-based private practice here at Health From Within. He specializes in John F Barnes Myofascial Release and Cranio-Sacral techniques. These gentle, full body manual techniques are designed to address restrictions in the soft tissue or 'fascia', which could be contributing to pain and restricted motion.
Fascia is a densely woven covering which interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. It is one structure that exists from head to foot without interruption.
When we experience trauma, scarring, or inflammation, the fascia loses its flexibility and can exert excessive pressure producing pain or restriction of motion. Because of its continuous nature in our bodies, a fascial restriction in the low back could be the root cause of headaches for example. The John F. Barnes approach is unique in that it looks at the entire body. We search out fascial restrictions, and treat with a number of techniques designed to cause permanent changes at the cellular level. These techniques include structural release, myofascial unwinding (somato-emotional release) and rebounding (gentle jiggling technique).
Sessions are approximately 1 hour long and a receipt will be provided for the client to submit to their insurance or flexible spending account. Cash, check or credit card will be accepted at time of service.
Please feel free to contact John directly at 614-395-9369 to schedule an appointment.
