Eliminate Your Pain With Neuromuscular Therapy
and Myoskeletal Alignment

Certified Neuromuscular, Myoskeletal Alignment
and Medical Massage Therapy

I've been involved in the healing profession for 28 years. I graduated from University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. I also worked in Physical Therapy for 2 years in an outpatient orthopedic clinic. Furthermore, I decided to advance my training and career with a Master's program in Neuromuscular Therapy. With these specializations I opened a practice in Redondo Beach, California where I concentrate on Neuromuscular, Myoskeletal Alignment and Medical Massage Therapy.

Neuromuscular Therapy is a program of soft tissue manipulation techniques that balance the central nervous system with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system. Neuromuscular Therapy can help individuals experiencing structural distortion, biomechanics dysfunction and pain. Physical traumas, strains and emotional stress can create imbalances in the body which lead to physiological dysfunction. These imbalances eventually if left untreated will manifest as pain. This type of therapy locates and releases spasms or hyper contraction in the tissues. It also rebuilds injured tissues restoring strength and flexibility, improving venous and lymphatic flow.

Myoskeletal alignment techniques are an integration of osteopathic principles with structural integrative work.  These joint stretches help to find and to alleviate chronic postural pain patterns.  You have to fix joint dysfunction so the receptors in the joint will pacify and muscle guarding will subside.  This restores balance and symmetry to the body.

At the initial visit, I will evaluate for postural and biomechanical dysfunction. This analysis determines the cause and effect relationship to pain. Soft tissue manipulation with manual therapy helps to determine if there is ischemia, trigger points, nerve entrapment or compression. When the body in in alignment homeostasis occurs which is balance to all the body's systems. From this analysis, I devise a treatment plan based on individual needs.

In addition, I'm also certified to perform Medical Massage through insurance reimbursed through Medpay but only if an automobile accident has occurred. Medical Massage therapy is an insurance based business in which massage techniques are chosen to address a specific dysfunction or pathology. Treatment requires a Physician's prescription, specific diagnosis and CPT code. I translate diagnosis codes into meaningful clinical pathologies or treatable problems under the supervision of a Physician.

Lastly, I worked with the San Diego Chargers during their training camp for two seasons.  I specialized in injury prevention through soft tissue manipulation and manual therapy.  This treatment insured the athletes could maintain a high performance schedule.

"I am so grateful for the way i feel, that i must share just how great it is to be able to function in my life without physical distress. After years of high intensity physical activity such as cycling and running,I began suffering lower back, hip and leg discomfort. I had lost flexibility in hips due to a lack of any form of stretching. Desperate for relief I visited Doctors and physical therapists which resulted in little or no relief. A good friend told me about a treatment which involved structural aligning. After a few visits to Michelle Hadley, the tightness and discomfort I had lived with for some years began to ease. Michelle began the education process and taught me the importance of muscular and skeletal therapy on the body. With her recommendation to enroll in yoga and visit her monthly,we began the healing process. With her years of training and experience in structural integration, I can say her treatments will work for you too. She stays current with new therapy techniques and applies them to her patients regularly. Thank you Michelle, you helped me back to living and enjoying a physical life to its fullest without pain."

"My daughter is a 17 year old soccer player. She plays for So Cal Blues and for Palos Verdes High School. She has also been fortunate enough to play for ODP at the state, regional and national level. Next year she will attend one of the top soccer division 1 universities.

Last year, she began having calf issues. Her calves would fill with "pressure" as she described it, her feet would go numb, and the pain was so bad that she was unable to play in several games. We took her to a doctor and they diagnosed her with Compartment Syndrome and they said she would need surgery to release the pressure in the calf. Not only did she fear going under the knife and the recovery time that it would take, but a positive result from the surgery was not a guarantee. We starting looking for an alternative and were recommended to Michelle Hadley. The results were immediate: after months of suffering and being sidelined. Michelle was able to help Haley within a month and she has not missed another game due to her calves. We are very thankful to have found her."

"After working as a court reporter for 21 years, I woke one morning and realized I couldn't move my arm. I went to my physician who diagnosed me with Cervical Radiculopathy and said i needed to stop working in order to heal myself. I took a week off work yet still had very little movement in my arm. In addition, I was unable to walk as that triggered spasms and extreme pain in my neck.

I underwent Physical Therapy through an Orthopedic Surgeon which consisted of heat packs along with electrical stimulation. I also took Celebrex for the pain. After three months of treatment,I noticed very little improvement. I decided to visit Michelle Hadley who came very highly recommended through a long time friend. After my first visit with Michelle, i knew she would improve my condition. Soon after, I was able to return to work, and i realize that had i not sought outside treatment with Michelle, surgery would have been necessary."
