This is what sets Bruce apart and makes the Matsuno Wellness center your last solution to your bodywork needs.We specialize in helping to Correct Posture and Scoliosis.  Your body is an advanced pully and leverage system, that is surrounded and connected with fascia (connective tissue).  Its is constantly changing to adapt to the demands that we place on our bodies.  Over time our body adaptation becomes our form, and now our form becomes our movement patterns.  Those patterns of strain and loads creates stresses on our joints, disk, vertebral spine and creates wear and tear and structural changes.

We specialize in analyzing your body, your posture, and relate them to how we can put together a full body approach treatment plan that is specific to your needs. The rolf method of structural integration is a full body manual soft tissue and movement approach that works specifically with your fascial tissue, by performing manual soft tissue manipulation, with active participation of the client.  In this work your connective tissue is being freed from restriction, so it can allow restricted muscles to slide over one another.  Length is brought back where the body was locked short.  Your shoulders are a prime example.  You work on a computer all day long.  You may have an ergonomic chair, but over time as your head neck and shoulder move forward causing strains in your head, neck, shoulder, and upper back.  Your connective tissue overtime forms to hold the demands that you put on it.  Now there is a saying “if you have cracks in the walls of your house, does it makes sense to feel the cracks? or does it make better sense to fix th foundation”  Back to your upper back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, we help by organizing your bodies structure to helps to eliminate the strains and loads on your body that is causing you chronic pain.Unlike, some of the massage and bodywork chains that offer massage and bodywork, they usually are trained to do a complete massage therapy routine that they perform person after person.  Most of them are fairly new to the field and most clients don’t get the results they are looking for.  Bruce is a graduate of 4 separate massage and bodywork schools and many continual education classes over the last 17 years.

Bruce specializes in Orthopedic and Medical massage.  Orthopedic/medical massage is outcome based.  It treatment is performed after you been evaluated by license medical practitioner and prescribed a diagnosis.  From here, orthopedic/medical massage treatments are administered with Myofascial release, specific manual soft tissue manipulation, cross friction fiber, deep tissue/trigger point therapy for an outcome based treatments.

Here at the Matsuno Wellness Center we work with auto accident Personal Injury Protection (PIP) cases.  With PIP auto accident cases we will refer you to our team of medical doctors that we trust for evaluation/diagnosis and a prescription for your massage and bodywork therapy for your rehabilitation treatment or you may get a referral from your own medical practitioner that your trust as well.  This is also considered orthopedic/medical and outcome base massage.  We have helped hundreds of people with their rehabilitation process and return back to their normal everyday life.

We bring relief to Hip pain and low back pain.  We work with your balance with your pelvis. chronic hip pain can come from degeneration of the hip, but we have found success in helping hip pain sufferers by working with your soft tissue imbalances that may be more align with root causes.  Again, fascial imbalances create stresses on your joints.  Aligning, lengthening, and organizing your facia can bring balance and take those stresses that maybe the cause or part of the cause to your pain.  We also will look at your movement impairment.  Your central nervous system  controls how your muscles are activated.

The CNS role is to properly hold your multifidus muscle around your spinal column and your global muscles for good posture and through proper movement.   When there is instability or weakness, your CNS the tells your muscles to alter the way it would normally activate and alter its movement pattern.  We work with your CNS in your hips by creating stability in your hips/pelvis in a weight bearing position.  From here we have you produce the movement that cause your pain, till we can fine tune the stability,where you can preform the movement without pain.  From here we introduce a corrective isometric exercise and retrain the CNS to memorize the proper muscle activations during that movement.  Results??? Better flexibility, 50 to 80 percent less pain, with a 80% success rate after the first treatment.

Are you a professional athlete or a weekend warrior athlete that wants to enhance their game, by playing pain free. We like to call it prehab therapy. Why wait to just fix an injury? A good analogy would be if you had a fine tuned race car and take it out of the garage to race. After the race, would it make sense to park it back in the garage for the next race? Or, would it make more sense to make sure the alignment was good to prevent wear and tear on the tires and engine, oil change, engine tune up etc……??? Which scenario would you be able to perform at your most optimal level? Which would have less risk of breaking down? If you agree too that taking time and effort for maintenance, then your going to be able to race longer and win the race. Your body is no difference, except, we really cant change our parts, or really want to get to the level that you have too.
