Meet Your Therapist – Roy Cohen

Q:  How do you feel about massaging women? A:  Most of my clients are women. I feel that I’m able to give a good, therapeutic, intuitive massage.

A:  In my experience, men who ask for a male therapist usually want deeper tissue massage, which is great for me because that’s what I…

T TIME: BREAST HEALTH – POST MASTECTOMY MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

Pain and tightness suffered post mastectomy/ lumpectomy can limit one’s life drastically. Myofascial Release can help create vast changes by softening dense scars and fibrosed fascia that remain unchanged with traditional therapy and stretching.   Traumatized tissue can have a cascading effect on the body.  Locally, tightened and fibrous fascia can restrict blood flow and lymphatic flow resulting in lymphedema.  Auxiliary cording can also occur, causing a significant loss of range of motion in the shoulder, leading to a loss of function.  Pain and weakness…

Context starts to creep in: wow, I really need a pedicure.  How long have I been in this pose? Sounds like that baby…

MMMM: ARE YOU A DESK POTATO??

Mel's Meandering Massage Mind: Are you a....Desk Potato?? Often, we go from sitting at work all day to sitting on a couch all evening. Desk potato to couch potato.  I haven't worked in an office setting in a long time, but I can remember the endless hours at my desk, followed by the long seated car ride home, followed by the ‘down time’ in front of the computer or TV at night. I was sore…

TREATMENT TO GET?

So you've gone and hurt yourself, huh?  You’re a gung-ho weekend warrior with a twinge in your back and aren't sure what to do about it.  This isn’t unusual.

“T” TIME: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BRAS!

Ladies ladies ladies! Let's talk about bras and how they support us, or don't.  They are meant to aid a beautiful part of our body!  However, I have been seeing a running theme in my practice lately and even out and about on the street.  Ladies, why are you wearing ill-fitting bras with absolutely no support? I hear all the excuses...”oh this is just my lazy day”, or “this is my bad bra”, or “my other…
