Ep 406 - Low-Back Pain: Our Event Horizon: “The Rebel MT” with Allison Denney

A woman holding her lower back in pain.

The low back has, oh, so many parts and, oh, so many possibilities for both function and dysfunction. For this episode of The Rebel MT, Allison compares the low back to silly putty, a flower, a puppet master, and deep space. In any instance, getting to know this event horizon of our anatomy is the key to helping clients whose low back has morphed into a black hole.

Rebel Massage Therapist:

My name is Allison. And I am not your typical massage therapist. After 20 years of experience and thousands of clients, I have learned that massage therapy is SO MUCH more than a relaxing experience at a spa. I see soft tissue as more than merely a physical element but a deeply complex, neurologically driven part of who you are. I use this knowledge to work WITH you—not ON you—to create change that works. This is the basis of my approach. As a massage therapist, I have worked in almost every capacity, including massage clinics, physical therapy clinics, chiropractor offices, spas, private practice, and teaching. I have learned incredible techniques and strategies from each of my experiences. In my 20 years as a massage therapist, I have never stopped growing. I currently have a private practice based out of Long Beach, California, where I also teach continuing education classes and occasionally work on my kids. If they’re good.
