Charli Tremain

Massage Therapist

Charli and her talented hands joined our team in Spring 2016. She has performed over 1000 massage sessions in similar clinical settings prior to joining Hands On Health. She graduated as a certified massage therapist from Bellus Academy of Manhattan in Kansas in 2013, an 800 hour education program. In 2012 she graduated as a certified nursing assistant from Southeast Community College in Nebraska.

Charli loves helping others feel better, whether it is through massage or in everyday life.
She’d be the first to jump up and assist the elderly with groceries or that special person who notices when someone needs help keeping their chin up.

“I enjoy performing my own mixture of massage that I refer to as Deep Muscle With Relaxation. I aim to give my client focused work on problem areas and yet at the same time help them maintain a feeling of being at ease. When you see me, I’ll want to find out from you exactly what a ‘best massage ever’ feels like to you and we’ll work together to achieve that goal each and every time.”

 

This conversation is a good example of how we work with our clients on issues relating to their health and musculoskeletal or nerve impingement conditions. Aaron was in need of a combination of physical therapy and massage therapy to enhance his recovery from this painful condition. He took a break from massage for a while and has since returned after being released from PT and we work to keep him from regressing back to a flair-up in his neck/shoulder and work to prevent secondary muscle conditions from flairing to the point of needing rest or PT. Other people with similar conditions receive massage while they are in PT and that decision depends on a lot of factors we discuss during the first few visits, such as cost, time, and the PT’s professional judgment.

I had been dealing with pain in my neck and left shoulder for several weeks when I scheduled an appointment with Charli at Hands on Health. I had consistent pain in the area around my left shoulder blade including a burning nerve pain in my shoulder just above the scapula. Sometimes I would feel a numbness in the outside edge of my left upper arm and forearm that seemed related. I had been to my chiropractor and had been doing some self-massage based on information from a trigger point work book, but I had made very little progress. I scheduled a one hour appointment with Charli and she worked primarily on that area for the entire hour. There were a lot of tender points and trigger points. She reduced a lot of them and I left feeling more freedom of movement in my shoulder. I had reduced pain for the next 48 hours and scheduled a follow up 30 minute appointment for the third day. Charli reduced the remaining trigger points even more and I left that session feeling even better. If you have been dealing with chronic nerve pain, it is likely caused by a combination of factors. Trigger points – or other soft tissue problems – are going to be one of the factors. In order to get relief and to heal as quickly as possible, you will need to attack the problem from various directions. I can wholeheartedly recommend Charli when it comes to working on the muscle tissue factors that might be part of your problem. She is very skilled in her technique and communicates with her client to make sure she is giving the best treatment possible. I plan to make treatment by Charli part of my regular efforts to stay healthy going forward.
