ABOUT THE HENDRICKSON METHOD®

The Hendrickson Method® is a unique and precise method of massage and manual therapy that was developed by Dr. Tom Hendrickson, Berkeley CA in 1982. The method combines wave mobilization® with joint mobilization and muscle energy technique. Not only is it relaxing, it’s an efficient and effective way to treat acute and chronic pain while promoting optimum health.

TREATING ROOT CAUSES, NOT JUST SYMPTOMS

A “regular” SPA massage generally focuses only on muscles (soft tissue). The Hendrickson Method treats joints, the nervous system and soft tissue, which resets the body to its optimal state and provides long lasting healing.

At the heart of it is wave mobilization, which Dr. Hendrickson created and has refined over the course of fourty years plus years of clinical practice. Based on essential Tai Chi principles of energy healing, these strokes are performed in gentle, rhythmic movements that mimic the energetic flow of ocean waves.

 

The Hendrickson Method® is suitable for everyone, from infants to the elderly. The method is performed while clients are fully clothed and without the use of oil.
