ANGIE MILLER KARR, OWNER, LMT, BCTMB
"Derby City Massage was born from one small dream: to help people live happier, healthier, pain free lives. Our main goal is to facilitate pain relief through the use of clinically proven manual therapy techniques. Our dedication, passion, and drive to help our clients succeed keeps us striving to always do our best work."
Angie's specialty therapy lies in pain-free deep tissue modalities such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, orthopedic massage, sports massage, cupping therapy, and dynamic stretching. The amount of pressure and technique used is adjusted during every massage in order to accommodate each individual's preference and need. Other non-deep tissue therapeutic modalities performed include Swedish and hot stone massage.
Angie is motivated and inspired by working with people who are recovering from over-use and repetitive motion injuries, surgeries, traumatic injuries, degenerative conditions, athletes, and those with chronic (long-term) pain. As a former member of the University of Kentucky Athletics Department Massage Team, she has witnessed many athletes rebound quickly from acute muscle, joint, and ligament injuries solely through regular massage therapy.
By identifying muscular imbalances and compensation patterns, Angie is able to help restore muscle function, increase range of motion, alleviate pain, and improve overall musculoskeletal function. Depending on the severity of the issue and length of time before seeking initial treatment, these results can be very long-lasting and are easily maintained by performing case-specific corrective exercises and adhering to a consistent massage therapy regimen.
It is important to note that not all cases can be successfully or effectively treated with massage therapy, and some medical conditions are contraindicated against receiving massage therapy. If you question whether massage therapy is a good option for you due to underlying health concerns, please consult your physician.
