Author of the weekly Anatomy Nerd column in the Daily Press and now celebrating 16 years of Massage Therapy, pain relief specialist Gina McCafferty has a client-goal-oriented integrative style of massage and bodywork. It is important to Gina to help her clients discover ways to have less pain and a healthier life overall.
Gina graduated from the Cincinnati School of Medical Massage in 2005 and since then has focused on trigger points and postural considerations to relieve muscle pain. Since then she has helped many hundreds of people with back pain, sports injuries, work injuries, neck and shoulder pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, old injuries, and more. Her style ranges from medium to deep pressure, targeting "knots" where indicated.
With a long personal history of fitness and nutrition, Gina also enjoys coaching people so they may gain ease and efficiency of movement as well as a deep yet simplified inspiration for improved eating, hydration, breathing and sleep.
Gina has worked professionally with NFL players from the Cincinnati Bengals, College athletes from University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football and Basketball, Masters swimmers from the Cincinnati Marlins, Xavier University triathletes, and more.
She uses advanced soft-tissue strategies such as neuromuscular therapy to help people have less pain, better flexibility, and improved quality of life from the troubles that are caused by chronic, recurring and nagging pain. She often gets results where conventional methods have been tried but the pain keeps coming back.
Her favorite kind of massage is "fasci-ashi" or myofascial ashiatsu, which is a comfortable, effective barefoot massage for people who want the absolute best in deep tissue with results that last and last. Using her smart and gravity-assisted feet, she can still find and work on knots and stretch you out. Got muscle pain? Gina can "HEEL" that.
She loves working with people who want results from their massage yet still desire that exquisite massage "feel"-- people who have pain and limited range of motion, as well as people whose muscles are "tight" and enjoy the feel of deep pressure just as much as they like the work on targeted trigger points. Of course every session can be customized for your needs. You can visit Gina's personal website at www.ginamccafferty.massagetherapy.com
