Seeking Professional Help – Have You Been Compliant?

In addition to your other treatments – medications, physical therapy and/or chiropractic treatments, ice and heat, salves, patches and creams – have you tried stopping the behaviors that lead you to the state of dysfunction which includes persistent pain and discomfort? This assumes the conditions are not auto-immune based or a random injury such as a fall or car accident. Although recovery from these and similar conditions still includes the patient’s compliance and efforts.

By changing injurious behaviors we could include:


I cannot tell you the number of people I have talked with in the past 10 years in my career as an “Assisted Healer” or a Soft Tissue Specialist and expert in natural pain relief. I can tell you that I get my business cards printed in 500 and 1000 card batches. I pass out about 300-500 cards a year and have that many or more conversations about my work annually.

Those are a lot of conversations with people from all walks of life about pain and dysfunction.

I feel it is accurate to say that a large percentage of my professional time is spent educating the public about the benefits of my work. Educating the public that a remedy or solution exists for their particular malady or personal health goal.

but we have the answer.

Thai Massage Training – The Art of Therapy


International Instructor Gabriel Azoulay & Roberto Paredes


Thai Massage – one of the fastest growing Massage modalities in the field today – a practice that fosters movement, joint mobilization and enhanced body postures.

Scheduled curriculum includes:


If you or anyone you know are playing golf or participating in a health regimen that involves workouts and diet control, then Soft Tissue Work is an essential component.

Stretching and Soft Tissue Work:

  • Lengthen Myofasciae in muscles and joints to increase Range of Motion (ROM) and athletes’ ability to create power.
  • Increase local and regional circulation of blood and lymph, thereby increasing metabolism to speed recovery.
  • Improve balance and flexibility of the athlete’s body in relation to gravity.

Anytime you run, lift weights, do pylometrics, yoga or compete in your sport, you are attempting to create change. You improve flexibility, muscle tone, tendon and ligament strength. You are also increasing your body’s Active Intelligence Quotient.


With thousands of spectators and vendors swarming the Waste Management Open, Golf Pain Free AZ was uber fortunate to have the pizazz of the Phoenix New Times street team in its corner.

The spirited New Times street team handed out hundreds and hundreds of Golf Pain Free AZ flyers…

but we know that some of you may have missed them in the midst of all the excitement.

So if you’ve been bummed that you lost yours in the mosh pit at the Bird’s Nest, don’t worry.

You can still mention it for a discount on your next training or treatment session!

Improve more than just your golf swing!

Soft Tissue Success Where Traditional PT and Chiro Care Alone Struggles

People often wonder how Soft Tissue specialists (LMT’s or Rolf Method practitioners) have been successful in rehabilitating patients with severe injuries, post surgery complications or chronic pain where others were not.

The condition of a person’s soft tissue – muscles and connective tissue (think of: tendons, ligaments and joint capsules of knees and spine, etc.) after or before a major event are often shortened and tough. This lack of movement in those layers reduces circulation (or is “ischemic”) of blood and lymph fluid at the injury site and the surrounding area so it will not respond to standard stretch and strengthen techniques offered at other offices.
