Massage and Mechanical Therapies

To really connect with the physical person, and to fully understand how their body is functioning and responding to our work, mechanical therapies are an essential component. I have spent countless hours learning anatomies and biomechanics and obtained my license as a Massage Therapist and my certification in Neurokinetic Therapy. As important as physical activity is to the body, developing a connection with musculature and nerve function is an equally critical component in achieving goals. My clients regularly benefit from orthopedic massage and deep tissue manipulation.

“ After my car accident
in which I broke my left fibula, fractured my pelvis, and fractured my C–5 vertebra, I had some limitations. Brandon LaVack was able to design a program that was able to get me to gain muscle, lose weight, and tone up. I am now, because of Brandon’s expertise and knowledge of the human body, able to lift weights with those muscles, pain free and without restrictions.”

My Services

Neurokinetic Therapy

An assessment tool that looks at how the body responds to compensation. The method is used to determine the compensation patterns that the body goes through in order to keep the person moving. The goal of NKT is to change the Motor Control Center of the brain by reprogramming more effective muscular engagement.

Kinesiology Taping

This method is used to provide assistance in correcting muscular dysfunctions by providing feedback to the body by targeting the largest muscle group in the body, the skin. One of the many tools used to help with non-traumatic pain issues.

Sports Massage

is aimed at delivering soft tissue therapy with the intent of assisting the body in recovering, relaxing, and decreasing stress and muscle tension. This type of therapy is often used for athletes who are looking to recover following competition or intense bouts of training or need to “fine tune” their muscle tone prior to competition.


Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation. Very beneficial in helping to reduce the tone of the tissue, especially at a superficial level, which is harder to accomplish by hands, as we create a quicker change in activating mechanoreceptors in the soft tissue and the skin.

Myofascial Therapy

Sometimes the hardest road we travel together is the road back from an injury or surgery. It can be slow, frustrating and wrought with setbacks. Having come back from injuries, I understand the path and have deep experience taking the role of a trusted partner in this process.
