After passing by "Holistic Touch" several times, after researching therapeutic massage, after asking a colleague to come with me, I finally gathered the courage to make an appointment for therapy for Frozen Shoulder. Sam was out of the country then, so, my appointment was w Naomi who was wonderful ! Not knowing what to schedule (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Acupressure ..), Naomi did Guru (Customized), a good choice for a newbie. Days later, I dropped in to get additional information (Can therapist do myofascial release for tissues that feel stuck?), when I was met by Sam who gave me a shoulder and neck anatomy lecture, and what needed to be done.

Hence, therapy sessions started. At that time, I had 20-40% shoulder range of motion, hard stiff lump along my biceps, duct tape feeling on my biceps, pain in front and back of shoulders, my scapula felt stuck against my back, my shoulder ball joint felt glued into its socket, etc. Using criss-cross motion w thumbs, Sam teased out the fibers that were stuck together. Sam worked on releasing subscapular area, a very difficult area to get to. Sam used a combination of stretching, pulling, pushing, pressure, muscle energy, and about 2 sessions of basalt hot stones. I need to add that one should not be shy about requesting a break, as Energizer Bunny Sam just keeps on going. I also need to add that for those who need to work after a massage, let therapist know, or else, one can get so relaxed, lazy, and unproductive. I have had several sessions w Naomi whose style and techniques (subscapular release, pressure points...) differ from Sam's but nonetheless helpful and excellent. I continue to get therapy w Sam or Naomi (mostly with Sam), sometimes focused on shoulder /neck... sometimes Guru...sometimes 1/2 feet, 1/2 shoulder... as aches and pains might be different on day of appointment... or there may be no issue on day of appointment. I was hesitant about writing on Yelp, as 1). I have never done a Yelp review. 2). I was wondering about mentioning the tears and facial contortions that came. 3). Need to ask for break... But I hope this will help others in their decision. Therapies (along w physical therapy, active release therapy, home exercises) helped release tissues and muscles, decrease pain, improve function, and avoid surgery. Thank you.
