- How can I find a Hendrickson Method Practitioner?
Sessions are done with patients fully clothed and without the use of oil. We prefer patients wear loose, natural-fiber clothing to their sessions.
Hendrickson Method practitioners are trained to work within a patient’s comfort zone. They work to treat areas of injury and pain slowly and gently, so that patients can relax into the pressure. They also appreciate patient feedback regarding appropriate levels of pressure. Effective treatments can be accomplished with light pressure and no pain.
Hendrickson Method therapists effectively treat chronic and acutely painful conditions in a way that is profoundly relaxing. While spa massages can be very relaxing, spa therapists are typically not trained to assess and treat painful, injured areas or chronic problems in muscles and joints.
