Local area Therapist develops a twenty first century Medical Massage model

Did you know that 80% of chronic low back pain, migraine headaches, menstrual pain, panic attacks, constipation and symptoms of diverticulitis are all initiated by a specific area of pelvic lesions? Carpel tunnel symptoms in the right hand are generated from a distortion in the left hip. TMJ symptoms are generated from hip distortions. These and many chronic pain issues that eventuate into pain management medications and even surgery may be addressed through structural integration techniques and Osteopathic pain relief techniques that are easily self administered.

Art Bailey is a German born immigrant. He developed The Pneuma system of martial arts in 1980. He has taught anatomy, physiology, psychology and kinesiology as a police tactics Instructor, patented a hand therapy device and the trampoline safety enclosure for his daughters’ stroke rehabilitation and developed the Neuro Massage therapy curriculum.

Art Bailey founded the Neuro Massage Therapy Institute in 2000 to take massage therapy into a higher quality of health care for the massage therapist wishing to enter the realm of medical massage therapy.

Art stated: "Massage therapists are not licensed to address a specific pain area, therefore we address the under lying cause of most pain issues through structural integration of the connective tissue distortions throughout the entire body system. Since a massage therapist cannot make a diagnosis or prognosis we have to know neurology, anatomy, physiology and Orthopedic assessment better than most just to insure we know what may be wrong so as not to work outside our license. The study is very exhaustive and not for everyone but for those willing to put in the effort the reward of giving people back a guanine quality of life is really gratifying. The Institute offers six continuing education courses for Louisiana license renewal of massage therapy and private class instruction in Neuro Massage Therapy to small groups and individual massage therapist as well as other health care professionals. Clinic treatments are available to the general public at the clinic located at 33336 Duff Rd. Walker, Monday through Saturday 8:30 am -7:30pm. 225-665-7982.We do not accept insurance but rather guarantee if we don’t help you we don’t charge you."
