Jeffrey Rich, LMT 656 is the creator of the Essential Five® Massage Therapy Techniques.

As a Certified Orthopedic Massage therapist I use medical massage techniques in my work, always, matching physiological effects of treatment to what is going on in your body at that moment.

Without my Essential Five® Massage Techniques, you are not receiving the best massage you can receive for your money.

During the past 17+ years that I have been in full-time massage therapy practice, I have developed a proprietary treatment method which combines several key therapies into a dynamite package that I now use with every client. Because it works. These therapies are the Essential Five® Massage Techniques for Pain Relief: Essential because each is necessary to work with the others in order to relieve pain fast and to keep you pain-free for longer than most massage therapy can manage, and Five because there are five key techniques that I weave together in my own special blend. 

Certainly other therapists know some of these techniques and can apply them individually. However, they don't know all of them, nor do they have the experience to apply them in the way that I do.

I combine Myofascial techniques, Deep Tissue massage, Neuromuscular Therapy (Trigger Point Massage), Acupressure, and Energy Clearing together in a unique way to give your body the relief it seeks, and to create conditions in which your body can both heal itself and give lasting hold for the amazing changes that you will feel in each of my sessions.

I'm not your run-of the mill massage therapist.

No other therapist does what I do.

No other therapist is trained in the way that I am. They don't have my experience or the problem-solving abilities that I bring to my sessions.

I tend to go off-road and create and synthesize new techniques and combinations that work. No matter what field I've been working in, I've always combined and coupled techniques into something new that is better than the sum of its parts. This is no exception; I'm a keen solver of problems, and the issues of pain management in the body are some of the trickiest I've encountered. The good news is that the critical-thinking skills that I picked up in Engineering School really set me apart from the rest.

If you want a great massage that not only feels great, but also gives results that last, give me a try and see what my Essential Five can do for you!
