What if you discovered that every massage you ever received was wrong? Each and every type. Deep tissue massage, sports massage, all of it.
Now humor me for a moment and think. Imagine if every type of massage therapy you’d ever received was just ineffective and never had a chance to get you to a pain-free goal.
How would you feel?
What if those countless massage therapy commutes for months or years at a time just weren’t necessary?
What if you found no amount of sports massage would improve your pain or performance and wasn’t capable of organizing your body’s musculoskeletal and tissue systems?
What if you learned that no deep tissue massage compare to the results you’d feel after only one session of the Rolf Method of Structural Integration, guaranteed?
What if you learned that there was a greater more permanent solution to any massage you could ever find in Culver City, ever?
In other words, what if you learned to eliminate the sources of your pain (not just the symptoms), and maximized the potential to feel your very best again so you could live more simply, without pain and get back to enjoying your daily activities in a way that you haven’t felt in so it’d be hard to believe?
Imagine finally understanding how your body really works so you wouldn’t have to fall for any more empty promises from unproven massage therapy techniques or over-priced supplements with unlisted “proprietary” ingredients. All proprietary means in the supplement game is (we don’t want to share our little secrets with you).
Forget the games, gurus, and gimmicks and let’s start talking about what’s better than even the very best Culver City Massage you’ve ever received, shall we?
Great. Then I’ve got good news.
You see, once you finally understand how your body works and the importance of organizing its various tissue systems you’ll also begin to understand why you’ve been experiencing pain as well as how to alleviate it — for good.
You’re probably still a bit skeptical and that’s good.
You’ve had too many poor or short term fixes when you’re been promised a greater solution, so it makes sense. You should be skeptical.
There are some critical reasons I’ve been able to help so many people get out of the pain spiral they’ve been in for so long.
Maybe you’re still making some of all of the mistakes I see most of my new clients making every time we meet for the first time.
For starters, they believe the pain will subside with general massage therapy.
You know the old saying, pain is temporary, but glory is forever?
Let’s just say pain is temporary when treated exclusively with massage therapy. But it will keep coming back each time you stop whatever deep tissue or sports massage you’re getting regularly unless you attach the cause of your body’s breakdown and not focus on treating the area of discomfort exclusively.
That’s what we do here at Matsuno Wellness in Culver City. We tailor your treatment solutions based on what is best for your body, and that’s a glorious thing.
Look, we get it.
Nothing is more disappointing than working with some internet “guru” who claims to provide massage therapy only to find out that everyone you know who gets treatment there is getting the same cookie cutter massage regardless of everyone’s independent causes of pain and symptoms.
Surprised? We’re not. After all, a sale’s a sale, right? Wrong… That’s how we hear a lot of practices operate.
We treat our clients differently. As people. Because to us, that’s exactly who you are. You’re not your diagnosis, you’re not your symptoms and most importantly — you’re not alone.
I want to back track for just a moment to introduce myself and let you know, I feel your pain. Literally. I’ve been in your shoes and I’ve walked the same path and it took me forever to finally find permanent relief so I’d like to share exactly how I did it.
Hi, I’m Bruce Matsuno, Founder of Matsuno Wellness.
Many years ago, I was injured while serving our nation’s military. I explored every service and technique possible. Massage therapy, sports massage therapy, deep tissue massage therapy, everything. Nothing helped… until I found Structural Integration.
Rolf Structural Integration is a unique massage therapy technique that treats well beyond the site of your pain, it gets right to the source by organizing all of your body’s tissue systems.
In other words, each segment of our body represents a chain of function, when one area breaks down, others compensate.
What can we say? We as humans are highly adaptive. At the same time, however, that may be part of the long term problem.
You see, compensations result in recruitment of inefficient motor patterns and also cause conflict in our body’s mobility and stability patterns in ways that can’t be treated well with any general massage has to provide.
Your body may try to make mobile joints stable or stable joints mobile in an attempt to maintain the best functional pattern overall so you can continue to do the things that got you into that place of dysfunction (which isn’t ideal), but again our bodies are resilient and work to adapt to their environments.
More importantly, however, this example shows the importance of understanding all the body’s interworking systems and layers of tissues so they can be organized to not only be functional but work in concert as they were intended to.
The ordering of these tissues can’t be accomplished with general massage therapy but using structural integration we can achieve all of these objectives for lasting sustainable long term health.
But here’s the most important takeaway, you don’t have to live in pain.
And it’s likely you’ve been told this and have pursued a variety of Culver City massage treatments and therapies, so I completely understand if you’re still a bit hesitant to explore the benefits of Structural Integration.
That’s fair, so let me share a few things with you.
Unlike a lot of other self-proclaimed internet “gurus” and practitioner’s claims — I am not claiming to have some disrupting new massage therapy technique.
The fact is, structural integration massage therapy has been in practice all over the world for quite some time now.
Next, I’m not looking to treat your pain or symptoms (yes, you read that right).
I’m looking to take care of your body’s systems to ensure they’re working together as they should, in harmony — all of your bodies tissue systems, organized for optimal pain-free performance from your head to your toes. I want to get to the source of your issues so we can achieve firm and permanent results.
In fact, I might not even glance at your immediate source of pain during a session because I’m seeking the origin for the breakdowns in your body’s structured systems.
Often times, I will relieve issues up or down stream from your discomfort and the result is you walk out of my office feeling immediate and noticeable relief.
With me, you won’t find invalidated treatment modalities or general massage therapy. My practice and treatment is all rooted in science and is focused on enhancing your body as a single integrated unit.
I’m not interested in serving quickly repeated massage therapy for temporary treatment. I want to help you get back to living a full life on your terms without being limited by any more pain or discomfort.
My promise to you is that you’ll leave your first session feeling relief. And, you’ll leave with a better understanding of your body and how it came to be in a pained state.
I’m not sharing that to brag, I say it because I want you to understand how you arrived at your pain so we can avoid it moving forward.
I also share that so you can learn the difference between the various types of massage therapy practitioners out there. Sure, many can execute massage therapy treatments and techniques, but do they know why they’re doing it?
If not, they’re just guessing. And you’ll be back in recurrent temporary pain relief treatment that isn’t getting you closer to your goal of a full pain-free resolution.
These are the types of results I achieved for myself. So I understand.
I get the pain and frustration and feeling of a constant and endless battle to have someone finally deliver the massage therapy relief they promise.
Come and see me so you can take your first steps to finally feeling better, to finally understanding more about your body and how to keep feeling your very best for years to come.
But again, don’t take my word for it. Just hear what my clients have to say.
