I will be the first to admit that I am a bit of a massage junkie. There are knots in my back, neck, and shoulders that I got while pregnant and have had ever since. They are four years old now (both the knots and my kids.)
So I jumped at the chance to review Modoma Massage & Wellness’s brand new Plano location at Park & Midway!
Modoma is not your typical day spa. They practice MedMassage, which “encompasses manual therapy, deep tissue work, active-release techniques, stretching and other modalities to release pinched nerves and built-up tension as well as providing a proactive approach to overall health.”
What this means is that the experience is a little bit different than a traditional massage place. When you enter, you’re greeted by the receptionist at a calming check-in desk and are then shown to a “tranquility room” type waiting area. But instead of being taken into a locker room, you are led into what looks like a typical doctor’s office. There is a table with a paper cover, a sharps disposal container, and a nurse who takes your blood pressure before the physician enters.
My Modoma doctor went over my medical history with me and then talked to me about my problem areas (those knots which have settled down and had their own baby knots,) and the treatment plan she would recommend for me.
She also told me about some of their other services. Modoma believes the beginning stages build the foundation for optimal health, which is why they focus on combining relaxation therapy with total body wellness. Their mission is to reduce stress, increase function, and ultimately improve the patient’s quality of life.
In addition to medical and traditional massage, Modoma may prescribe natural trigger point injections with sarapin, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, nutrition counseling, foot orthotics, and can even do complete labs and bloodwork.
The physician said I would be a good candidate for the trigger point injections and described the procedure. During this treatment, the doctor uses a small needle to inject a solution that helps release the knots directly into the affected area. Then the massage therapist works it through the muscle. Take that knots!
Honestly, if I lived closer (I am about 40 minutes from Plano) I would have signed up right then and there. But for now, between the drive and finding someone to watch my littles, a once a week massage is a bit optimistic for me. At least now I know where to go when I throw my back out in my sleep and can’t walk (true story, I am so old I get sleep-injured!)
