PHILOSOPHY

Carlos headshot.jpg

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."

- Lao Tzu 

I am Carlos Messerschmidt founder and lead therapist at the Myo Pain Center OC. My career began in 1996 at the Myofascial Pain Treatment Center in San Francisco. I started out as a massage therapist and in 1999 became a Board Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist. My exposure to patients who suffer from all kinds of pain sparked an interest in other hands-on methods; among them are the Rosen Method Bodywork and Movement, Massage Cupping Therapy and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy. 

I believe that my unique training background is what enables me to help patients and clients to get their lives back. Because pain is a complex experience it requires not only knowledge and skills, but intuition, guidance, and the ability to listen to the patient.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Myofascial trigger point therapy is a non invasive and comprehensive program for the release and control of acute and chronic pain. It is based on research and treatment protocol of Janet G. Travell, MD (1901-1997)

ROSEN METHOD

Rosen Method is distinguished by its gentle, direct touch. Using hands that listen rather than manipulate, the practitioner focuses on chronic muscle tension. As the breath deepens, unconscious feelings, may emerge.

MASSAGE THERAPY & CUPPING
LYMPH DRAINAGE

Massage Cupping is a modified version of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice of cupping therapy.  Using suction (vacuum) to lift tissue as the cup moves or is placed over an area of the body.

The lymphatic system (aka the sewer system) is an important component of your immune system and plays a vital role in the body by regulating the immune system, which protects your body against infection.

ROSEN METHOD
MOVEMENT CLASSES

Rosen Method Movement Classes are held in a group setting with people gathered in a circle. This circle provides an opportunity for people to engage face-to-face with each other creating a sense of support, community, and have fun together. Set to music, these unhurried and gentle movements improve alignment, flexibility, balance, and create strength throughout the body.

Rosen Movement is comprised of physical therapy movements that increase range of motion, ease of breathing, and keep the body moving smoothly.

This movement is deeply restoring because it cultivates body awareness and reconnects us with our inner-self, with those around us, and with our environments.

Come and rediscover your inner wiggle
