Shawn Bates began her Neuromuscular training in 1999. She continued through the series of Paul St. John Neuromuscular training seminars until she completed the 6 primary certifications covering the body and its extremities.
What is Neuromuscular Therapy? The Principles Involve Reducing Ischemia, Trigger Points, and Nerve Compression. and then working with the body systems to also reduce Postural Distortions and biomechanical Dysfunctions due to faulty movement patterns.
Trigger Point therapy is a principle method used in proper rehabilitation of injured soft tissues. Trigger point therapy can be applied to any specific muscle, that spasms on occasion or continuously. Pressure is applied to a small muscle fibre region, which may then reverberate to other areas of the muscle , causing pain. When a muscle spasms, blood flow is subsequently severely diminished in that area, and sometimes ceases altogether. Trigger point therapy helps eliminate spasms and hyper-contractions in muscle and soft tissue.
Neuromuscular therapy is generally performed so that the therapist and client are focusing on troubled or traumatized areas, and it is not the therapists intention to cover most or all of the body in one particular therapy session, as done is a Swedish Massage. The focus, and outcome are designed to help reduce chronic tension in muscles that spasm or are contracted tightly , on a regualar basis.
Shawn, and other therapists of Body Benefits trained in trigger point therapy, have gotten amazing results while helping those in need of this type of work. If you find yourself suffering from chronic pain in Tucson, AZ, don’t sit back and let it take over your life. Call Body Benefits Massage today and explore your treatment options through neuromuscular therapy.

The best massage in Tucson
I have used several other therapists in Tucson but Body Benefits is easily the best. Shawn is the therapist that I use and I am very impressed with not only her technique but also her knowledge of the human body. ( Muscle groups, nerves, tendons....etc) Always very relaxing and rejuvenating, I would recommend this company to anyone in need of a break from the daily stress.
House calls are important
I was first referred to Shawn Bates by my accountant nearly eight years ago, who was already using Shawn's massage therapy for her migraine headaches. Her referral was enthusiastic. For the last four years my wife and I have used Shawn's massage therapy on a regular basis. My wife, Nancy, and I have worked with her for several reasons, but the most important is that Shawn makes 'house calls'. The reason that 'house calls' are important to us is that Nancy is disabled from battling cancer, and from the aftermath of a stroke. Since it's hard for Nancy to get around, having someone come to us means a lot. There are important items I want to check off when I'm considering any service, including massage therapist: Good communication. Shawn is great at staying in touch. Timeliness. Shawn has always been on time. Sensitivity. Shawn asks about our needs, and can provide anything from deep tissue massage, to lymphatic massage. Experience. I can't recall exactly how long Shawn has been a massage therapist, but I believe it's over twenty years, and the experience shows. Competence. This is perhaps the most important point, in my opinion. I've had other massage therapists work on my 65-year-old muscles, and Shawn's expertise clearly stands out. There's no substitute for experience. Finally, we've learned to appreciate Shawn as a 'good person', and welcome her into our home each time as a trusted friend. I enthusiastically endorse her as a massage therapist, and as a friend. Best regards, Rob Buehler
Shawn has been massaging me for well over 10 years. My physical problems have always been structural and muscular and Shawn has been a life saver for which I am grateful. I live at a Spa that employs many, many massage therapists, so I think it says it all that I choose always to remain with Shawn of Body Benefits Massage. I give her the highest recommendation possible.
My favorite masseuse
Shawn's work is fabulous. I feel calmer, healthier and healed. I find her to be intuitive, experienced and respectful. A great combination! Maryann B.
