The second speaker today was Dottie Johnson our massage therapist in Golden, Colorado Dottie was introduced to the age-old practice of Massage Therapy by a dear friend that gave her a gift certificate for a massage. Although it took her a year to use it, but when she finally did, Dottie realized that it helped her mentally, physically, and emotionally to handle everything in her life better.  It brought less stress, moving easily, and the reduction of muscle tension seemed to make her feel and do better in every aspect of her life.

So, at the ripe old age of 44 Dottie signed up for Massage School. In that Dottie found the love of body work and all that it involves took hold of her and that’s what she’s studied and practiced ever since.  It has added more meaning to her life.

Dottie took the rest of her time today to discuss the very important issue of Stability and Mobility in our lives.
The alternating pattern of mobility and stability is the baseline of mechanical function for the joints and a pivotal shift in how we view injury, pain, and dysfunction presentation. One of the most chronic issues we face in much of the western population is low-back pain. Where a large majority of us sit at desk all day, then race to the gym to pay the penance for a weekend filled bad food and drink choices, only to drive home and collapse in front of the TV.
Importance of Range of Motion brings to mind the chronically flexed hips or osteoarthritis in the hips. This creates cascading problems both above and below the hips and that most often presents as low back pain and eventually as knee pain.
Movement Education is very important to understand as the lumbar spine takes over movement patterns to compensate for the limited hip strength, the more immobile the hips become, then as the quadriceps try to support and stabilize the hips, knee pain results.  Massage keeps the muscles functioning properly, reducing pain and strain and creating mobility in the hips.  By keeping the stabilizing joints functional.  The shoulder is the MOST mobile joint in the body, if the trunk is stiff and immobile (thoracic spine) the shoulder will eventually suffer a painful overuse injury or tendon/ligament pathology.

Helping people understand the important of movement and flexibility is one of the most meaningful parts of my role as a Massage Therapist.  The overall reduction of stress is the healthiest way to live and what Dottie works to achieve with her clients. If you are looking for a Massage Therapist to reduce stress and help with the overall mobility of your body give Dottie Johnson a call!
