Whiplash is weird.

I was slowing down on the interstate approaching an accident, looking at the flames leaping from the car off on the left shoulder, wondering if the person was ok. When I looked forward to stop behind the person in front of me, a movement caught my eye in the rearview mirror. Headlights. Coming too fast. They weren’t going to stop in time. I braced myself for the inevitable.

Let’s talk about carpal tunnel syndrome, and what, if anything, massage therapy can do for it.

What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?

The main symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are pain, numbness, burning, tingling, weakness and/or clumsiness in the hand or fingers, not including the pinky finger.  Symptoms often come on at night, and may radiate sensation up to the shoulder.

The benefits of lymphatic drainage

By Claire Schoen

Light and rhythmic, lymphatic massage (also known as lymph massage, manual lymphatic drainage, or “MLD”) helps people feel a deep sense of relaxation and calm. This specialty style of massage is, perhaps, one of the most relaxing forms of massage – using such gentle pressure that the body can fully let down its guard in the hands of the practitioner. Anyone who wants to achieve peaceful calm should try lymphatic massage, especially those who don’t prefer firm pressure massage.

Your Scalp Massage Check Up From The Neck Up.

There’s a lot going on in that head of yours — including many muscles and structures that could benefit from a scalp massage and face massage. People often ask us what we’re working on when we massage the head so we will explore the cranium vis a vis therapeutic massage. From sinuses, to stress, to migraines, healing touch can help us keep our heads in the game.

Trauma Survivors Can Be Aided By Massage.

The team at Nimbus Massage recently hired Hannah Bohn, MSW, a local mental wellness professional, to teach the staff a clinically-oriented class on PTSD and Trauma. By expanding our knowledge base, we can better attune our sessions to our clients who have experienced either of these. The root of helping people with their massage goals comes from understanding what people experience. We believe that massage can help survivors of trauma and people who live with Post Traumatic Stress.


We help people get back to the business of living their lives a little bit better through targeted therapeutic massage sessions and programs.
