Testimonials From Massage Clients

Here are just a few testimonials from clients who are benefitting from the massage skills of Steph Bedaw:

"I can't tell you guys how much Steph has helped me. Not only does she help treat injuries but she also understands the anatomy to explain to you why the injury occurred in the first place. She is a great listener and truly loves doing what she does. She has helped me recover from my injury and has helped me feel better than I felt before I got hurt. She also has a great deal of knowledge regarding stretches you can do on your own as well as icing and heating methods you can do at home. I wouldn't see anyone else! Thanks for all of your help Steph and to anyone who has aches or pains that won't go away please book an appointment with Steph!"

— Justin W.

"Hey guys, Steph has been a huge help with my sciatic nerve issue rehab. She does great work for injuries. I had a debilitating whip lash issue and had her work on me for an hour, the next day I was so much better. She does great work and is fun to talk to during the rehab. She has always been awesomely fair with me money wise, so go get work done!"

— Timo S.

"Steph is very professional and is great at listening to issues/injuries and helping heal them. She really gets in there without making it hurt too bad. Highly recommend!"

— Eric / CrossFit Nashua

"I had recurring pain in my right shoulder from hurricane surf in Rhode Island. Steph worked on it with me and now the pain is gone." 


 "As an older athlete, low back pain always limited my gains. Steph's rehab work helped to relieve the pain and now I am working at full capacity."

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a type of Swedish massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids. Some sports massage movements use trigger point therapy to break down adhesions (knots in the muscles) and increase range of motion. 

There are four types of sports massages:

  • Pre-event sports massage — a short, stimulating massage 15 - 45 minutes before the event. It is directed toward the parts of the body that will be involved in the exertion.
  • Post-event sports massage — given within an hour or two of the event, to normalize the body's tissues.
  • Restorative sports massage — given during training to allow the athlete to train harder and with less injury.
  • Rehabilitative sports massage — aimed at alleviating pain due to injury and returning the body to health.

When Should I Get A Sports Massage?

A sports massage is a good choice if you have a specific problem — a tender knee from running, for instance. It is also be a good idea to see a movement therapist, who can help you identify and correct the movement pattern that might be causing your injury in the first place.

The therapist generally focuses in on the problem area — a frozen shoulder or pulled hamstring, for instance — rather than giving you a full-body massage.

Sometimes men who are new to the spa are more comfortable getting a sports massage because it sounds more masculine. That's fine, even if they don't have an injury. 
No matter what type of massage you choose, the therapist should check in with you about what your needs and expectations are for the massage.

Trigger Point Release

Trigger Point Therapy was pioneered and developed in this country by Dr. Janet Travell, President John F. Kennedy's personal physician during his years of persistent back pain. Today it is commonly referred to as Neuromuscular Therapy.

A trigger point is a hyperirritable tender spot in an abused muscle that refers pain ("triggers" pain) to other muscles. This is why the pain in your head may be coming from a neck muscle and the pain in your neck from a shoulder muscle and the pain in your low back from a hip muscle.

If the trigger points are not treated, they can be the culprits in lingering pain even after an injury has healed, and the reason why the headache, neckache, and backache keep returning year after year. Some of the causes of trigger point activity in your muscles are stress, excessive chilling, injury, overuse, strain, as well as chemical, drugs, alcohol, and environmental pollutants.

Active trigger points keep the muscles tight, restricting blood flow and compressing nerves perpetuating a vicious pain-spasm cycle in the muscles. The effect of decreased flexibility limits movement encouraging postural patterns which may sustain the cycle for years. Trigger Point Release Therapy is a valuable component of preventive as well as rehabilitative care.

The various neuromuscular techniques to release trigger points and restore movement are being studied today by many health care professionals.
