Hello, my name is Mindy Nagel. I'm a Certified Massage Therapist trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Myofascial Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Tense and Release,(PNF Stretch) Shiatsu Massage.
I attended National Holistic Institute of Massage in Redding, Ca My previous training and experience consists of being a certified Equine Body Worker from Equinology in 2000 and then I went on to be trained in Massage Therapy in 2004 After taking a short sabbatical to raise children, I decided to go back to school and further my education in a field that I have great passion for.
As a therapist, there is no greater personal satisfaction for me than to help my clients become pain-free & less stressed. In massage and bodywork I specialize in neck, shoulder, back & hip pain. Whether you have had an accident, injury, chronic pain, or lifestyle, I am able to help bring your body back to a balanced, pain-free state.
Randy Ganoung is a graduate of Chico Therapy and Wellness Center in Chico Ca. Randy is Certified by the State of California and is member of ABMP Massage association. Randy’s massage styles range from stress reduction relaxation massage to sports massage. Randy specializes in Myofascial Release, The John F. Barnes approach, which consists of holding sustained pressure into the body/connective tissue for periods of time for up to 7 min. This time element allows for deep releases in the body creating space and healing results that last. Randy enjoys working with people, and he is particularly excited to help you achieve your health goals.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
