Ramon Mascarenas is a member of National Assocation of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist (NAMTPT) whose primary training is focused on identification and treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. If you experience chronic pain which other types of treatment or medications have not resolved then myofascial trigger points are a likely cause of your pain.

The word myofascial means muscle tissue (myo) and the connective tissue in and around it (fascia). Myofascial pain often results from muscle injury or repetitive strain. When stressed or injured, muscles often form trigger points, like contracted knots, that cause pain and tightness.

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy can help with these conditions:

• Back pain
• Headaches
• Neck pain
• Whiplash
• Rotator cuff (shoulder) pain
• Jaw pain (TMJD)
• Tennis elbow
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Hand and arm pain
• Repetitive Strain Injuries
• Pelvic pain
• Hip pain
• “Sciatic” pain (buttock and leg pain)
• Leg and knee pain
• Plantar fascitis (foot) pain
• Tendinitis/tendinopathy
• Burstitis
• Arthritis
• Disc pain (bulge/rupture/herniation) and radiculopathy
• Frozen shoulder
• Fibromyalgia

The PalmLeaf Massage Style combines Lomi Lomi style with guided meditation and is integrated with Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy and specific techniques which are customized to your needs. Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian style massage with energy work to heal through relaxation. This may include Hot Stone Massage, Cupping Therapy, Hydrotherapy (Hot and Cold) Treatment, and Breathing exercises.

About Lomi Lomi

It is a Hawaiian style of massage that supports the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. All of our services are inspired with Lomi Lomi.

“Lomilomi means the loving touch, a connection between heart, hand and soul with the Source of all life. The purpose is to revive the body, to move blood and lymph, to open spasms and remove waste materials from muscles and connective tissue.”

“… If your hands are gentle and loving, your patient will feel the sincerity of your heart and the Lord’s healing will flow through you both.”
