About Tennee Gay:

I am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and a Ayurvedic Health Practitioner. I have spent the past 17 years working with others in the realm of health and healing and am currently focused on using the tools of holistic nutrition, FDN and Ayurveda to support those that are interested in troubleshooting health imbalances in order to optimize their health and live a vibrant existence! My own life experiences have taught me that health and happiness go hand in hand. In order to advance to a higher level of productivity in life its important to put in place a supportive framework to help you thrive and stay on track. I draw from a framework that utilizes healing foods, lifestyle modifications, herbs and supportive tools to help you eliminate hidden stressors and restore the brilliance that is you!

About Surya Anderson:

My journey on the healing path began unintentionally when I was in my early 20s. As a young man full of health and vigor, I had decided to travel to India and Nepal to backpack and study the origins of Vipassana meditation. During my time sitting vipassana, I sustained a crippling low back injury that turned my health upside down. This injury, coupled with dysentary left me physically broken. Soon after, I found myself in a state of chronic pain, and thus began the quest to regain my health.

Throughout the next month while traveling through central Europe I saw a number of physicians and received a CT scan. The results showed a partial herniation of the L4-L5 disc. The doctor, with whom I received this diagnosis, recommended that if I lay down for couple of weeks on the floor icing my back I would see signs of improvement. This of course was not the case. Eventually I made my way back to the states and I was referred to my fathers chiropractor. Dr. Khalsa wore a white turban, a long beard and had an exotic practise he called Kundalini yoga. He sent me home with a handful of core strengthening exercises and psoas releasing stretches and so began my study of yoga. This introduction into yoga took another 10 years to solidify and make its way fully into my life. However, I am now a certified yoga instructor through the “Yoga Alliance certified school of Yoga for All” and I am committed to sharing and providing resources to help others reclaim their own health and vitality.

Medical Massage or Orthopedic Massage

Medical and orthopedic massage is designed to produce immediate, and long-term, results for people with specific injuries, symptoms, or any type of myofascial restrictions.
These forms of massage often provide immediate and long-term relief from pain, and both help promote full body alignment and healing.

Medical and orthopedic massages can successfully treat a variety of medical conditions including:

  • Tight and sore muscles that can lead to poor blood flow, improper alignment and pain
  • Limited or poor range of motion throughout the body
  • Poor posture and lack of balance and coordination
  • Stress and other nervous system ailments
  • Muscle knots (Myofascial trigger-points) and pain
  • Nerve compression and muscle spasms
  • Digestive issues

These issues and others can all be addressed through medical or orthopedic massage treatment.

Because medical and orthopedic massage are designed to identify and treat medical issues, these treatments require a doctor’s prescription. Advanced Spine & Sport Chiropractic accepts medical referrals from other doctors, but our own doctors can authorize medical and orthopedic massages if we determine that treatment can improve your health.

Medical and Orthopedic Massage Facts:

  • Injuries and surgeries, whether minor or acute, can impact one’s quality of life; medical and orthopedic massage can address those impacts through cost-effective, drug and surgery-free, and non-invasive treatment.
  • In many cases, medical and orthopedic massage serves as a preventative health solution allowing for long-term health, flexibility, and vitality.
  • Medical and orthopedic massage is a treatment that promotes full-body health and wellness.
  • You can use your health savings account (HSA) or health reimbursement account (HRA) for medical and orthopedic massage, and some insurances cover medical and orthopedic massage treatment.
