Hugh Pennock LMT #18587

Having personal experience with injury and illness, I am passionate about the power and potential of massage therapy. I believe that massage can help us connect with and heal, not just our physical bodies but our mind and spirit as well.

I am an AOS degree graduate of the Boulder College of Massage Therapy (BCMT) Boulder, Colorado, internationally renowned as the leading College in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. I have completed over 1400 hours of training, including Integrative, Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques, with a focus on Sports and Orthopedic massage. I have been practicing privately, on and off,  since 2009.

My work with professional and amateur dancers, athletes and musicians as well as stroke survivors and Hospice clients, combined with my world-class training, has given me the skills necessary to tailor your massage session to your individual needs.

I look forward to hearing from you, answering any questions you may have and hopefully being a part of your journey as you reach your health and fitness goals.

Massage, Movement and Quality of Life

Everyday, we move our bodies in countless ways and at different levels. From the large movements, that give us motion to the smaller movements that keep our bodies functioning.

When our ability to move is compromised, because of injury, stress and overuse, our quality of life suffers.

Massage helps to restore that quality of life, by helping our bodies recover from injury, deal with stress in a positive manner and move in a way that promotes well-being.

Massage has also been shown to increase athletic performance and aid in post-event recovery. So if you are working towards a personal best or looking for that edge against the competition, massage is for you.

Styles and Techniques

You are one of a kind and your massage session should be also. All of my sessions are a blend of styles and techniques, based on your individual goals and needs for that session.
The styles and techniques that I pull from include Swedish, Integrative, Deep Tissue, Sports, Orthopedic and Neuromuscular with influences from other training and personal experiences.


Sports Massage

Sports Massage Aids the body to achieve maximum physical performance. Administered before physical activity, it can help protect against pain and injuries, while boosting performance. Following exercise, it helps remove lactic acid and restore normal muscle tone and range of motion. It helps the serious athlete as well as the casual athlete perform at peak efficiency.

Orthopedic Massage

Orthopedic Massage
An approach to pain management and injury assessment utilizing a combination of massage techniques. Relief is achieved by a sequence of functional assessment, myofascial release, neuromuscular (trigger point) therapy, cross fiber frictioning, muscle energy techniques ( PNF-Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, RI-reciprocal inhibition & PRI-Post Isometric Isolation), strain-counter-strain and home care. The combination of these techniques obtains immediate and permanent results in even the most challenging and complicated cases.

Wellness and Relaxation

Wellness & Relaxation Massage Therapy is used primarily for individuals who desire to maintain optimal health & wellness.  A combination of techniques will be integrated to fit your individual needs.  Always remember to communicate with your therapist about your desired pressure and goal.

Swedish

Swedish massage is also known as “classic massage” and refers to a style of massage based on five strokes: gliding (effleurage), kneading (petrissage), friction, tapping (tapotement), and vibration or shaking. Though these five strokes have many variations and can be used with light or deep pressure, gently or vigorously, the term has come to most often refer to a general, gentle, relaxing type of massage. Even during sessions based on other styles, I use Swedish techniques as a warm-up and cool-down before and after deeper techniques.

Integrative

Integrative massage focuses on increasing the mind, body and spirit connection.  This modality is very client centered and often includes breath work, verbal interaction, visualization, and sinking into and reflecting on the layers of physical sensation.  This can be very effective in helping clients to move past holding patterns and increasing a deeper awareness of their own body, breath and sensation.

Deep Tissue

The phrase “Deep Tissue” means different things to different people. To some people, it simply refers to the amount of pressure used, regardless of the techniques or goals. Other people use the term to talk about any type of work that specifically addresses deeper structures. This is where it is important for you to communicate with me about your goals and expectations for the session – whether you simply prefer deeper pressure to relax or you have pain, discomfort, or dysfunction you’d like address with specific work.

Sports

Sports massage aids the body to achieve maximum physical performance. Administered before physical activity, it can help protect against pain and injuries, while boosting performance. Following exercise, it helps remove lactic acid and restore normal muscle tone and range of motion. It helps the serious athlete as well as the casual athlete perform at peak efficiency.

Orthopedic

Orthopedic massage uses a variety of massage techniques to address specific chronic pain patterns. The key to this type of massage is the critical thinking involved – determining where the pain comes from, not just what hurts. A key component in this work is some form of assessment. This may take place off the table before the massage starts, or may be integrated into the session itself. For example, discomfort between the shoulder blades is a common situation in which it feels good to work the area that hurts, but the actual problem might be coming from tightness (which you probably aren’t even aware of) in the chest muscles, so I look at posture and range of motion in the chest muscles and if appropriate, address those as well.

Neuromuscular

Neuromuscular massage refers to a variety of techniques that are based on the interaction between the brain and the muscles. Tightness is not a problem isolated to the physical piece of muscle itself – the brain controls muscle tone, length and contraction. Neuromuscular techniques such as trigger point therapy (TPT) and muscle energy techniques (METs) work specifically with the brain-muscle connection to change the signals the muscle is receiving from or sending to the brain. TPT involves finding a hypersensitive nodule in the muscle that may be causing a variety of problems (localized pain, reduction in function, susceptibility to injury, and/or pain that is felt in another part of the body) and applying compression at progressive depths. This can be an intense portion of the session. METs are performed by guided muscle contractions combined with stretches. These techniques, variations of them, and others are considered “neuromuscular techniques” and are used throughout a session when appropriate.

What to expect during your session

Your session will start with a short intake interview so that we may discuss your medical history as well as your goals for the session. You will then be given privacy to undress to your comfort level and get on the massage table, under the top sheet and blanket. During your massage, only the areas being worked on will be undraped. I will check in with you during the session in regards to pressure and depth of touch. Your participation and communication is encouraged so that you can get the most out of your session. If at anytime during your session you feel uncomfortable or are experiencing pain, please let me know so that the proper adjustments can be made.


Policies

 

Confidentiality

Your privacy is very important to me. All records including verbal and written communication between therapist and client will remain confidential and protected. The only exceptions will be if you have given written consent for your records to be released or your records are subpoenaed in accordance with state and federal law.

Privacy and Draping

You will have complete privacy while you undress before your massage as well as while you dress after your massage. For your massage, you may undress completely or wear as much clothing as you feel comfortable with. During your massage, only the areas being worked on will be undraped.

Hygiene

Massage inherently takes place in a close environment. Because of this, you can expect me to be clean and free of odor and strong cologne; please do the same for me. Fresh sheets will always be used for each session. Some of the oils and lotions that I use have a slight scent. If you have any sensitivity to scent or any allergies that I need to know about, please inform me in advance.

Cancellations & Lateness

If needed, I will be happy to change the time of your scheduled appointment. If you need to change an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged in full for that appointment. Reciprocally, if I must reschedule with less than 24 hours notice, your rescheduled session will be at no charge. If you are late for a session, I will do my best to work within the remaining time. You will still be charged for the full session.

Inappropriate Behavior 

Massage therapy is therapeutic in nature and in no way sexual. If a client makes any sexual advances or requests, the session will end immediately and full payment will be expected.


Service To Community

I am very passionate about the power of massage therapy and feel strongly that it should be accessible to everyone, regardless of income.

It is also very important for me to give back to the community that I grew up in and that now supports me in my massage practice.

If you know of an individual or organization that would benefit from massage therapy but is unable to afford it, please contact me so that we may discuss your proposal.

I set aside a portion of the revenue from every paid massage I give, to support in this effort.  I also donate my time when I can.  By supporting my business, you are not only taking care of yourself, you are paying it forward in our community.

As my practice grows, so will my ability to give back.  If you are interested in learning about how your support is helping our community, please sign up to receive my newsletter.
