Clinical Massage and Movement Therapy
Are you wondering what sets Trista apart from other therapists? Not all therapists are created equal. Just like any other profession. Sometimes you don't know what your going to get. With me you will get my natural talent, 5 plus years of experience and training. I get alot of hands or feet on training. Not all therapists do. Video training seems to be popular in the massage therapy profession. Certain topics are just fine for online learning, like ethics, sanitation, pathology to name a few. Learning a new technique or modality should not be. Many will watch a video and then claim they are certified in it. Or they will get basic training in school and claim they can do that technique but are really not doing it correctly. I see this often times with myofascial release.
What happens when you see Trista? You will fill out an intake form and go over history. Get orthopedic assessments, range of motion testing and so on. If your therapist cant explain the treatment to you, run. When you go see someone else you might fill out a form. Then they will have you get ready. The difference is noticeable.
Did you walk out of your massage and feel like you didn't even get a massage, sore instantly, or worse bruised? I cant count on my fingers and toes how often thats happened to myself or Ive been told by someone this has happened to them. Im honestly not sure why this is acceptable in our profession. I truly believe that many therapists are completing school which are basic skills at best. Then are not getting more education, which I believe they need to be the best they can be.
