Jon Mandell, Patient
After being in a back brace for 3 months, I found that my hip had compensated for the immobility of my back. It had
become as painful as my back. I attended six weeks of physical therapy with not much progress being made on my hip
I attended weekly treatments of medical massage with Arrika for about eight weeks.
She was very good about listening to my concerns regarding my pain and addressing them. She used different
techniques to stretch and release my hip joint. At physical therapy, they attempted to stretch and strengthen the area but
the hip still felt so tight and painful. Arrika was able, through her various techniques, to relax the area enough to then
effectively stretch it and reduce my pain.
Not sure what would’ve happened if I had not found Arrika when I did. I appreciate all the help that she gave me.
