Align Therapeutic Bodywork
Molly Reuss LMT
Everybody knows that all emotions and experiences get stored in the body. Your body is the hard drive for everything that happens on a non physical plane of existence. Did you know that all pain experienced in the body for longer than 8 weeks is emotional? Chronic pain is the body’s forgotten language- its trying to tell you something.
When you come to Align Therapeutic Bodywork, you’ll realize massage isn't a luxury, and you're never just getting a massage. Professional relationships with experts in the medical field have helped guide expert bodywork to be your solution to pain. Not every one has the same problem, which is why there is never just one answer. Techniques developed from all corners of the earth, thousands of hours of experience, and superb intuition help create a space for your body to heal itself. The body is not the enemy, it was meant to heal itself- and its been trying to do it all along.
For centuries, we have forgotten how to speak the language of the body. My mission is not only to spark that mind body connection, but to help you heal a past of physical and emotional neglect that we have put our own bodies through.
Why Massage for Chronic Pain?
It can help with
The Body holds tension and stress from the mind. If you can release stress in the body, you release stress in the mind.
When your body feels good, your mind is free to think about things other than pain, and allows you to do the activities you love.
When your body feels safe to relax, it sends a signal to your brain that it is safe to 'turn off' and get true restorative rest.
Mind Body Connection
People just assume that trauma and stress get 'uploaded into the cloud' some where; but it actually gets downloaded into the body as a way of telling us 'something needs to be addressed'. When you address the body, your mental state becomes more clear to tackle the big things. When you clear the mental state, your body starts responding differently.

Once you understand how your body communicates with you, you can't unlearn the language. You will learn to understand what your body wants and what it needs.
First off, WOW! This isn’t your “normal” massage therapy session. Molly provides a total Therapeutic Body Assessment & Recovery for any physical and mental needs. I knew from the intake form this session would be different...Once Molly got a good idea of my needs, she educated me with some of the reasonings of those sore spots. Throughout the session she educated me on how massage, cupping, taping, and many various ways that can improve not only my physical health but my mental health as well. This was an immersive and customized session just for me! Tell the truth I’ve never had that happen in my past at other massage sessions. Molly made me feel special and gave me great tips for me to use at home and in the gym.
