STUART, FL. – Debbbie Roberts, L.M.T. and owner of Massage & Fitness Professionals of the Treasure Coast, recently returned from New Freedom, Pennsylvania, to tape a commercial for Oakworks, a massage-and-spa-table company. Roberts accepted this honor in order to become a part of the company’s educational series. Massage therapists will be able to go to www.Oakworks.com and click on different educators for quick tips.
Roberts, a personal trainer and group exercise leader for more than 27 years, created a three-part signature system to help LMTs with assessment, multiple treatment modalities and muscle stabilization. Roberts helps therapists learn how to assess soft-tissue involvement for shoulder impingement, bursitis, tendonitis and partial tears of the rotator cuff. This systematic approach helps massage therapists have a more measurable outcome to their clinical massage.
The commercial contained quick tips on quadratus lumborum, IT Band Syndrome, piriformis and lateral hip rotators and stretching the upper pecs using the Proluxe System and Side Lying Positioning System.
