We would like to introduce ourselves as adjunct health care professionals who can offer manual therapies that can greatly benefit your healthy lifestyle. We specialize in therapeutic massage with knowledgeable assessment abilities and experienced hands-on skills. We have dealt with a wide variety of clinical conditions including: headache and migraine, neck, shoulder, and back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, TMJ syndrome, athletic or repetitive motion injuries, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, anxiety and depression, sleep disturbances, frozen shoulder, scar tissue, and reduced joint or tissue range of motion.
We create a personal approach for each client by spending time talking with the individuals about their specific conditions and therapeutic goals. We then adjust our pressure and intention according to their comfort level and specific need for each session. The time that you schedule is the amount of hands-on time you will receive!
Some of the modalities our therapists are trained in include: Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Hot Stone, CranioSacral, Sports, Massage Cupping, Reflexology, Myofascial Release, Infant Massage, Acupressure, Kinesio Taping, 4 Hand Massage, Swedish, Seated Chair, and Embodyment™
We’re easily accessed from the Concord, Harrisburg, Kannapolis, and Charlotte areas. Let Essential Kneads transport you to a place where muscles relax, tensions fade, skin is glowing, and your internal energy is revitalized!
Conditions we have worked on that massage can directly effect: spasm, hypertonicity, stress, trigger point activity, scars and other restrictions, restricted range of joint or tissue motion, headache, back and neck pain, chronic pain, energy levels, sleep disturbances, plantar fasciitis, repetitive motion issues, sports injuries, soft tissue injuries (vehicle or other), carpal tunnel, and postural disturbances.
Conditions that people have come in with that we did not work directly with, but are clinical diagnoses that do not deter us: cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure and heart disease, asthma, allergies, post-surgical issues, knee and hip replacements, frozen shoulder and rotator cuff issues, GERD or reflux, Parkinsons, fibromyalgia, disc issues, Crohn’s disease, immune deficiencies, hormonal issues, and anxiety and depression.
We have worked with athletes of all ages and levels: from minor league baseball players to high school and college level volleyball and soccer players, competitive weight lifters, yoga professionals, dancers, swimmers, runners, and even mechanics. We’ve also worked with musicians, such as French horn players, pianists, and guitarists.
