Mary P. Lund, CNMT, LMT
Whether you have a recent injury or a chronic ache — massage can help.
Untreated injuries and stress can lead to long-term chronic pain. If you, your family, or friends live with chronic pain, then you know it can lead to a decrease in earnings, social and family activities, and the joy of living.
Studies show that therapeutic massage from an experienced massage therapist can enhance healing and overall energy levels while relieving pain, stress, and tension.
Mary graduated June 1996 from the Utah College of Massage Therapy (UCMT). She was recognized for
Outstanding Academic Achievement. The 712 hours of required UCMT study exceeds the minimum 500 hours provided by many massage schools in this area. UCMT works closely with the University of Utah’s Anatomy Department, requiring several hours of cadaver study so that UCMT graduates fully understand the workings and movement of the body’s musculature and structure.
What do these letters mean? They mean that Mary is licensed by the Washington Dept of Professional Licensing. And that she has met or exceeded the minimum requirements regarding the ethical and lawful practice of massage. She also takes continuing educations classes yearly as required by the licensing office.
Mary is certified in Paul St. John’s method of neuromuscular therapy (NMT). This is an intensive course of study requiring post-graduate classroom study, practical and theory exams, and additional portfolio information supporting a complete knowledge of this treatment program.
Many say they took the classes, but few get certified.
NMT’s focus is to balance the central nervous system with the structure and form of each person’s body. Using an analysis of your health/injury history, posture and movement testing, and palpation, Mary determines which muscles need to be worked. What this means is – even though your main complaint is burning pain between your shoulder blades, you may actually need work done on the muscles of your chest and ribs.
