Neurokinetic Therapy®, or NKT®, is a fairly new method of massage originated by David Weinstock. It is effective because it identifies dysfunctional movement patterns. Muscles are tested to discover which ones are compensating for other muscles suffering from fatigue, pain, and inflammation. The massage therapist uses manipulation instead of force to retrain the muscles that have stopped working properly. The therapy is designed to work along with physical therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic treatment. Instead of pain management, the goal is pain relief or elimination.

Medical Massage

Mend - Human Repair Shop & Massage is more than a massage and therapy clinic. The combined experience of our practitioners provides our patients with rejuvenation, relaxation, and recovery for the body. The purpose of medical massage is to alleviate aches and pains brought on by a number of chronic conditions and injuries. We are proud of our role as part of the overall wellness and healing program for your injuries as prescribed by your primary doctor or medical specialist.


Sports Massage

Professional, amateur, and casual athletes are often surprised at the impact sports massage therapy makes on their particular activity and warm-up routines. Like Swedish massage, it involves kneading, vibration, long strokes, and circular movements designed to energize and relax the body. Its main purpose is to treat and prevent injuries caused by participation in sporting events.


Trigger Point Massage Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy (TPT) requires a thorough understanding of how your muscles affect each other and the part they play in how they body works. A trigger point massage concentrates on areas of tight muscle fibers that form in muscles due to overuse or injury.


Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is one of the most common massage techniques because of the many benefits it provides to tense and stiff muscles. Our practitioners at Mend – Human Repair Shop & Massage are licensed and qualified to loosen muscles in your shoulders, neck, & lower back and realign the layers of tissues and muscles far beneath the skin’s surface.
