Massage Supports Pain Relief and Prevention!

Home/Massage Supports Pain Relief and Prevention!

Do you work at a computer 10-12 hours per day; so much so that your neck and shoulders are in constant pain?

Are you a “Weekend Warrior” suffering when you get back to your day job?

Does your lower back pain prevent living the active lifestyle you want?

Does shallow breathing prevent activities like Sailing, Running, Tennis or golf?

Does muscle tension in your upper back or leg cramps in the middle of the night cause disrupted sleep?

Do you walk past a mirror and notice slouched shoulders and head leaning forward?

Do you get headaches consistently causing you to cancel appointments or dates?

Do you feel the tight band around your head from migraines more often than not?

Regular massage treatments are guaranteed to help alleviate all of the above symptoms. Even better, regular massage treatments increase your overall sense of well-being, build resilience to stress, and improve physical functioning on many levels. Rather than treating only the area of pain, our holistic approach works with your body over time to re-align and re-balance the underlying causes of the pain, decreasing the likelihood and severity of its recurrence.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Constant pain in our bodies creates a ‘new normal’ for you which includes the expectation that you will always have that pain. Massage provides relief in  the moment, but with continued treatment it can alleviate pain and prevent it forever. If you are committed to getting help with physical issues be prepared that one treatment will not fix anything permanently. You get into your condition with continually doing an action that causes repercussions over the long term. If you are dedicated to helping your body heal, then you need to allow for long term care and treatments to reverse the habits and damage that have been done over time.  To support you in healing and enhancing your well-being, we offer a variety of packages that will fit your unique needs and budget.

Testimonials

I’ve been going to various massage therapists for the last few years for my arms and back because of RSI from the work I do. For the last couple of months I’ve gone to Susan for treatment and she’s an amazing Massage Therapist. My condition feels like it’s now improving after nearly a decade and I can be without pain much of the time. Susan seems to be able to make much more progress during the treatment time than other massage therapists I’ve gone to in the past. Highly recommended!

I am writing this testimonial in one of the most relaxed states I have been in since I can’t remember. I have had issues with muscle tension for a long time and tried numerous therapies to remedy the stress with little to no success. After my last Hot Stone Treatment with you, the muscle tension in my upper back is non-existent. The cramps I would get in the middle of the night and during the exercise have subsided since I started seeing you. I can’t believe we have only had 4 appointments and the results are fantastic. You are a fantastic massage therapist to work with as your knowledge of the human body goes above and beyond expectations for therapist of your qualification. The amount you care about your patients speaks wonders to your character and charisma. It is truly a highlight of my day when I get to see you. If you ever need a reference for quality of service, please do not hesitate to give out my number, and I would be happy to re-iterate this over the phone.

I have used her services in the past but last week I was suffering from a migraine when I went to see her. I was mobile, but not functional in any capacity. During the treatment my body felt more sensitive than usual but Susan intuitively adjusted the pressure of her strokes and used her knowledge of anatomy and healing to implement specific hot/cold strategies to alleviate my pain. I could feel the tight band around my head lifting. By the end the pain had subsided significantly and then disappeared completely. I am confident that had I not received the treatment, I would have suffered countless hours in bed and not been able to function again until the next day

Oceana Massage provides healing that is deeper, more complete than any I have experienced before. I have tried other therapists and none have compared to the care I have experienced from Susan.

I have a slipped disc in my lower back and at 30 weeks pregnant started to feel extreme discomfort and pain. Upon my OB’s recommendation I researched prenatal massage and decided to book a session with Susan Polano. It was the best decision I made and worth every penny.I’m now at 38.5 weeks and very much mobile and comfortable. I have booked weekly sessions with Susan and while some might consider this a luxury, it was absolutely necessary and beneficial. Seeing Susan every week has allowed me to continue to work and increased my mobility which is so important with labor on the horizon.If you’re researching prenatal massage therapists I would highly recommend Susan.

I would like to specifically thank Susan for my most recent treatment. I have used her services in the past for muscle tension and stress relief but last week I was suffering from a migraine headache when I went to see her. Although I was mobile, I was not functional in any capacity because of the migraine. I can be very sensitive to scents and was weary of using any essential oils but trusted her suggestion of using a diluted peppermint blend. During the treatment my body felt more sensitive than usual but Susan intuitively adjusted the pressure of her strokes and used her knowledge of anatomy and healing to implement specific hot/cold strategies to alleviate the migraine. As time went on, I could feel the tight band around my head lifting and was able to relax my neck and shoulders which also tighten from the pain of the migraine. By the end of the treatment, the pain had subsided significantly and within a few hours after the treatment, it had disappeared completely. I am confident that had I not received the treatment, I would have suffered countless hours in bed and not been able to function again until the next day.

I’ve had back problems for years and once I had a massage with Oceana Massage, all others paled in comparison. Susan Polano got to know my issues and has the most healing hands and warm and friendly personality. The entire experience has always been one of comfort and relief from pain and stress. She is very skilled and uses different techniques to alleviate pain and stress. I always walk out straighter and much more relaxed than when I walk into my appointments. I highly recommend Susan Polano and Oceana Massage to anyone.
Ingrid de Jong Joffe
Susan from Oceana Massage has been my massage therapist for 5 years. Thanks to her expertise, I have relief from pain in my back and legs, as well as a much reduced stress level. I would recommend Susan to anyone who is looking for a very knowledgeable, professional and caring massage therapist. Some of the things that are most impressive about her are her ability to provide relief for whatever aches and pains you may have. She even knows which muscles are sore before I tell her! Susan provides a relaxing, calm and warm atmosphere in her studio. She’s the best!

Her ability to… make you feel comfortable while experiencing a truly decadent & rejeuvenating massage in the comfort of my own home. Good thing too … since I was so relaxed that there was no hope of my being alert & & highly recommend Susan.
