* Pain is always real even when the contributors to pain are not.
* Pain and tissue damage are poorly related.

who is it for
You just got injured
Surfing; rock climbing; car accident; 4 hours spring cleaning; moving a house; picking up your 2 year old after a sleepless night...what ever the scenario is, your body immediately is starting the inflammatory process to put you back on the road to recovery. Receiving manual therapy at this stage is highly effective and beneficial in assisting the body in the repair process and calming down the central nerve system.
you just got injured, again
You rolled your ankle; twisted the knee again; that hip pain is back after it was gone for a few months, the thumb in numb; the shoulder is feeling weird. There is an underlying story, perhaps it's in your habits? perhaps it is something else. Receiving manual therapy will address the issue in the tissue as well as calm down the central nerve system. ‘Explain pain’ is a powerful tool of knowledge and self empowerment. We will also take a look at the verity of movements in your life and the consequences of a rich movement environment.
It's chronic man
It has been there for ever, you can't even remember when it started, now it is getting worse. Now, you can't reach out for that parking ticket in the garage, you can't put on a shirt, you can't tie your shoes, you can't cross the street fast enough, you need inserts; a cane; a knee brace; you modify your movements to accommodate the pain. Chronic pain is a massive issue in the western world, not only in dollar amount but also in personal and social cost, depression, loss of productivity etc.
Understanding pain reduces the pain experience and is a powerful treatment as in of itself, it allows you to be in charge and use your understanding to change the things you say, think and do.
Inbar is quite simply THE BEST massage therapist I have found, and trust me when I say I have been looking for some time. I am the owner of an exercise studio -- so I am very in tune with my body and often asked for massage referrals. Inbar's deep knowledge of the body, uncanny intuitiveness (finding issues I didn't know existed and knowing just the right pressure), and lovingly calm demeanor never fail to result in effusive thank-you's from my clients. The only potential issue is competing with her big fan-base for a time!"
Heather - Co-Owner at The Bar Method Downtown SF
I came to Inbar with osteo-arthritis of the hip that was beginning to put severe limits on my choices of daily activities. Within even one session she had ascertained my most severe mobility issues and had worked to relieve the limits, tension and associated compensations I was developing. I walked out of my time with her, changed and grateful. Inbar has an intuitive sense of the body, often detecting restrictions, contractions and tightness before I mention it. I had been told that there was little that I could do to improve my pain, mobility or expectations but since working with Inbar I now know that not to be true. Inbar has given me back much of my previous mobility and activity, and I will continue to work with her to maintain my active lifestyle and the freedom from pain.
Erica - Consultant
I have been seeing Inbar for over 5 years and she has been able to do what Physical Therapy and Chiropractic treatments have not--relieve the almost constant pain in my neck. She treats not only with her exceptional massage skills but with her wonderful presence-a truly extraordinary combination. When I sent my massage savvy friend to Inbar for her birthday she claimed it was the best massage she'd ever gotten. I would recommend to anyone without reservation.
