NEw York, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Matthew Mandel, a Licensed Massage Therapist and Full Body Certified Active Release Techniques provider (ART), has joined Living Well Medical. This downtown Manhattan-based practice is the home of many specialists who work together under one roof to provide patients with unparalleled results. Living Well Medical is known for going above and beyond to keep their patients out of pain for the long term by addressing the root of the problem, whether it is an impinged nerve, a herniated disc, or a torn muscle.
Integrated practices focus on treating their patients in an environment similar to what a professional athlete would experience if they were trying to make a comeback from an injury. A team of specialists work in-house and across disciplines to help ensure that the problems which are troubling the patient are not allowed to become chronic or to reverse those that are, and to make sure that the underlying triggers of pain and discomfort are dealt with properly. Not only does this result in fast and effective pain relief, it also saves on health care costs over the long-term and ensures that the patient is able to achieve a full return to their daily activities and continue to enjoy the same quality of life they did before an injury or accident.
Matthew Mandel is somewhat of a rarity in the massage therapist discipline. He has an intricate approach to treatment and employs his vast knowledge of soft-tissue manual therapies along with his ability to administer Active Release Technique (ART) on the full body. ART is a powerful and sophisticated technique which assures that highly effective and targeted treatment can be applied to the exact parts of the soft-tissue that require it. When asked about his thoughts on an integrated approach to treating patients, he replied: "The soft-tissue systems of the body, which include the musculoskeletal, fascial, visceral, neural, craniosacral, and lymphatic, all have differing needs regarding what techniques will aid them most. My own extensive and varied training in manual therapies specific to every soft-tissue system of the body enables me to aid clients on their path to wellness by utilizing the most appropriate and effective system-specific techniques."
Along with ART, Matthew Mandel also utilizes RockTape: Fascial Movement Taping, Advanced Kinesio-Taping, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy and other highly specialized soft-tissue treatment protocols. "I see a lot of people with issues stemming from the chronic buildup of scar tissue and problems related to hypo-mobility. These dysfunctions result in compensations which create faulty movement patterns and compound the issue," says Mandel. And he goes on to add, "I suffered from sports-related injuries and it was manual therapy that brought me back to wellness. My personal experience of the great value of expertly delivered manual therapy inspires me to deliver the same to clientele."
Matthew Mandel will be adding his skills as a massage therapist and working as a part of a team which consists of a doctor of Osteopathy, doctors of Chiropractic, and a physical therapist. They will all practice under the same roof to ensure that they all have a direct line of communication between themselves and the patient, ensuring that the best course of treatment is available for every patient. Mandel is still a practicing athlete, currently holding a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
