Relax. Restore. Rejuvenate.

Larry Witzleben, L.M.T., C.P.T.

Orthopedic Massage

Orthopedic Massage restores you to the full, pain-free movement you were designed to enjoy. As close as we can come to the freedom of a child at play! It returns your muscles to their length and state of rest and you have freedom of movement through your joints again.

Orthopedic Massage is a medical massage, as deeply relaxing as it is deeply therapeutic. Orthopedic Massage engages your muscles’ innate desire to relax and let go. It is a targeted, thorough technique. and accesses and influences the muscles deeply without the physical force. Orthopedic Massage uses gentle isometrics, myofascial massage, and deep breathing to restore a healthy nerve pattern in the muscles.

Orthopedic Massage connects the dots of how your stresses cause muscles to tighten, then how tension spreads to other muscles in widening circles and logical sequence, like dominoes that fall. We simply turn that around, roll the tension back and return your muscles to their original length and state of rest. Your body wants always to return to its natural state of wholeness and health. We just support that.

Orthopedic Massage Testimonials

Larry, I have just completed a 3,400-mile driving vacation with no back problems! Before I started seeing you, I would not have even considered a drive of that duration.

That was a GREAT session! I feel so much looser all the way up my hamstrings.  Actually, my calves and Achilles feel so much better, too, and my foot has no pain whatsoever. It articulates with great ease. Everything you did, including that last little bit of specific foot work put it all together.  Thank you!

Larry, thank you so much for that wonderful massage.  I felt more alert and energetic afterward than I’ve felt for a month. I also appreciated your suggestion to walk as slowly as I had to, to walk as though I was fine, and let the speed come back naturally. I was surprised that I could do that! I’ve evidently not walked normally for a while, as there are some muscles protesting against the new program. Thank you for your deep understanding of the body and the care through which you deliver it.

Being a Type-A person who finds it difficult to sit back and relax, I have come to look forward to my appointments with you, to slow things down and take a time-out just for me. I have come to see you for pinched nerves, tendinitis, and all manner of sore muscles. I have also come in just to relax. You accomplish it all with a skill that is remarkable. But this last massage that you ended with Polarity Therapy! This is the most relaxing technique I have ever experienced. It slowed down my breathing and my whole body, and when the massage was over, I just wanted to lie there in the quiet and comfort.

I have been a client of Larry Witzleben for about three years. I originally came to him for massage therapy. He introduced me to Polarity Therapy about two years ago. At first I was skeptical. I thought of Polarity as more of a “New Age” type therapy that did not really do anything. However, because of Larry’s level of care and his belief in Polarity Therapy, I gave it a try.  I was very surprised by its effectiveness. During the session, I could actually feel a realignment of my internal organs. My relaxation was greater and lasted longer than from massage alone. Currently, I use a combination of massage and Polarity Therapy in my sessions.

Polarity Therapy

Your body has an energy field, that animates everything in your body, beginning with your nervous system. It is your energy's free flow that gives rise to your health. It is disruption in the energy that brings the start of health's breakdown, first as subtle unease. Polarity Therapy is a hands-on, whole-body treatment that clears disruption in the energy and restores it to its flow, and your body to the natural ease it was made to enjoy.

Polarity Therapy consists of moments of quiet, still holding, gentle rocking, and connecting areas and points of the body at various depths. These touches are designed to release obstructions to the free flow of energy through the body, to support your return to health. Dr. Randolph Stone, DC, DO, ND, originator of Polarity Therapy in the mid-1900's, theorized that all natural healing techniques are effective because they support the individual's innate capacity for health by stimulating the free and balanced flow of life energy.1 For Polarity Therapy, all you'll take off are your shoes.

Polarity Therapy Testimonials

For me, your Polarity Therapy releases not just muscle tension, but the emotional stress that causes my muscles to lock up in the first place.  Larry, your work reached emotional stressors that no other professional could get to. Thank you for what you do!

Relax isn’t in my vocabulary. I’m productive and intentional all the time, and I love it. But I didn’t do a thing the entire Thanksgiving weekend – all four days! And as soon I as I realized this the day after Thanksgiving and started to think, “Wait a minute, this isn’t like me,”  I didn’t even finish the thought in my head before I said to myself, “Wait a minute, this feels right, this IS me! I should do this more often!”

Tad, a young man, mid-20’s, was a colleague in one of my networking groups. He was an engaging young man, very successful in telecommunications sales, but you could also hear in how he spoke and see in his body language that he was wound tight for success in a highly competitive industry. His speech was quick, his words clipped and running over one another, and you knew that even at his young age, his nervous system  was starting to fray.

He’d heard me speak of Polarity Therapy and decided to give it a try, scheduled a 30-minute treatment for the end of a day. When he arrived at my office for his appointment, he looked harried like a man who’d been in a hectic day of outside sales and in rush-hour traffic all day.  When he walked out of the room little more than a half-hour later, he glided slowly in his own bubble of calm.  Out the door … home he went!

Two days later he called me. “Larry, what did you do to me?” he asked. “Are you okay?” I asked in return.  “Am I okay??? I am SO okay!” he exclaimed. “ My whole body feels lose!” He went on. “When I got to your office the other day, the chatter of the whole day was still in my head, like loud, banging, heavy-metal music.  But yesterday it was like mellow Frank Sinatra!” More even than that, I knew what was important and what was not.”

A Whole-Body Reset!™

Larry created A Whole-Body Reset!™ when seeing cell phones -- dominating our lives, running our every waking moment, and pushing our moments of being "on" to earlier and earlier and later. We virtually live our lives through our phones, and our phones now run our lives. And that is our undoing. As surely as we brush our teeth every day, we need as regularly to unplug from our phones and our technology. We live on alert for the ding!; we live in fight-or-flight mode; and our nervous systems are fraying. As go our nervous systems, so go, we. The health and effectiveness of everything in our bodies and in our lives -- everything! -- rides on the health of our nervous systems. Larry gives us that.

Although we know we need to cut back on the use of our phones and technology, we also know we most likely won't. Because we won't! We're addicted. The ding! has won. So, Larry said, "No problem, I'll do it for you! I'll unplug you from your life for a few precious moments that will alter your day. Take off your shoes -- that's all -- and lie down. You'll be back in your car in under an hour."

Larry put together protocols of Polarity Therapy, that treat the aspects of the energy field that create and animate your nervous system. It's a hands-on, whole-body treatment. When you come into Larry's treatment room, you'll leave your world behind. You'll lie down on his massage table, face up, and he will begin by cradling your head. You'll relax out of fight-or-flight all together and come to deep calm. In that calm, your nervous system and whole body will reset to their natural, original quiet. That quiet will go with you and be the start of a new norm. What stressed you out and ran you only yesterday, in time no longer will.

A Whole-Body Reset!™ is designed to be received like a periodic tune-up, to keep you at your relaxed and most effective best. The benefit is cumulative and deepens each time. The Reset changes your relationship with stress all together, and you live in fight-or-flight no more. You're happier for no reason.

I had perfect posture with no effort. My shoulders lay back on their own. I felt so open!

I experienced what turned out to be my first asthma attack when I was 15, after a cross-country meet. That was twenty years ago, and since then, inhalers and nebulizer treatments have been routine parts of my life. Over these 20 years, I’ve had to take two puffs on my inhaler before any exercise, including mowing the lawn. 

In May [2015] I had to see my doctor for a nebulizer refill, because I had a bad chest cold that was dragging out and triggering my asthma.  For two weeks I’d had the constant feeling of an elephant sitting on my chest, causing me constant shortness of breath. I was miserable.

In July, I met Larry and heard about the Polarity sessions he offers. During my first session, I felt a great calm and happiness wash over me, and this feeling lasted for almost a week and a half. More than that, I also felt the pressure that had been causing my asthma, disperse completely. I had a second treatment four weeks to the day later. As I write this, it has been almost two months, and I have been free of any and all asthma symptoms and have not needed my inhalers nor nebulizer. Not once!

I woke up the next morning and didn’t feel any immediate difference from how I usually felt  when I woke up. But by the end of the day, I couldn’t believe how fast time had flown, how much I got accomplished, and the fact that I never once felt rushed and overwhelmed. The feeling of peace lasted all week, and I noticed time and again that I simply was taking care of things at work and chores at home, that normally stressed me or put me in a bad mood.

The night following my first session, my husband and I had one of our spirited fights. But after he’d excitedly, angrily argued his position for the longest moments, I just said, “Honey, you’re right, I’m sorry!”  He was stunned, that was so not like me.  But I was different after my session. Had a new calm. Being right just wasn’t that important.

I’m less dramatic now in how I react. I tend to react very emotionally, and I realize that I now pause to think before I react. I’m more intentional.

The treatment was more relaxing than if I’d had a massage. I could feel the stress and worry rising up and out of my head.  Immediately afterwards,  I felt very relaxed, and my shoulders were not up by my ears. I was able to sit up naturally with my shoulders back and with perfect posture which is not at all normal as I’m a constant sloucher. But my back felt strong, and sitting up straight felt normal.

This should be part of leadership training.  I see situations better and more clearly. I know what’s important, decide better.

My mother had been staying at my house for a couple of months.  Stress city!  But after the session I found I was much more patient with her than usual, and the house was much less tense than it usually is with an extra person there. We were able to joke and laugh and enjoy our time together since I wasn’t rushing around to get things done, return phone calls, etc.

It was a very busy week, prepping for the birth of our second child.  So I was running hard but didn’t feel overwhelmed as I typically do. I get very anxious in hospitals, but I didn’t feel anxious as I typically do. Throughout this past weekend I was at the hospital for nearly 60 hours, going through delivery and all that that involves, but I felt calm.

Matt C.

The calm lasted about ten days, and things were less of a struggle.  The only thing that was really strange was that that evening after my session, I received an email that made me irate.  Immediately I began my usual obsessing, planning how I was going to tell off the person who’d sent it. But then before long, I simply stopped obsessing, and the matter had evaporated.

When I arrived for my session, an issue with my son [2 years old] was weighing on me.  In the course of the session, I saw the issue clearly and went home knowing how I wanted to handle it.

I had just left my session with Larry. Felt relaxed and calm. Unusually so. I wasn’t even out of his driveway, when my cell phone rang. It was my son [23], in panic and tears. He’d been in a bad car accident, was pinned in his car and needed me to get there. In that moment when everything seized up in me, it didn’t.  I felt a warm calm wrap itself around me like a blanket, and fill me. It wasn’t shock but a total calm. I was present on the phone with my son, reassured him, talked him back from panic, then calmly was on my way to him. Had it not been for my session with Larry, I’d have been a total basket case, sped away in panic, and not been as effectively available for my son.
