Tim Tynan said his new location on Naubuc Avenue has netted him more clients. (Steve Smith / Courant Community) Tim Tynan, owner of Whole Body Solutions, said his niche in the field of massage therapy is that he gets to the root of any issues his client is having.
Tynan began his business last August, working out of an office in South Glastonbury, but moved on Jan. 1 to 122A Naubuc Ave. (Suite 104), and said the change has been beneficial.
“It’s more convenient, being right off the highway. The place we had before was phenomenal, but things blew up faster than I expected,” he said.
Tynan and his wife currently live in Rocky Hill, but previously lived in Glastonbury. He has been a massage therapist for five years, and previously worked on the relaxation side of the business, but working in a chiropractor’s office lead him to feel that rehabilitation was simply something he enjoyed more.
“I got to work on all different types of conditions,” he said. “My clients were getting better, but I felt like something was missing. I started looking for more specialized type work.”
“I still remember getting off the table the first time. I never felt so balanced. I could feel the energy in my body flowing down,” he said. “That’s when I found what I do now.”
Structural Energetic Therapy includes more techniques than a typical massage. Conditions treated with this therapy include degenerative disks, pinched nerves, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, migraines, post-concussion syndrome, and more.
“Most of your chronic pain-like symptoms can be stemmed back to some sort of structural imbalance on some level,” he said. “Even more cognitive things like Alzheimer’s, dementia, and vertigo.”
Conditions like sciatica, for example, can be treated with a more-typical massage, but more effectively with a rehabilitative specialist.
“There are some things we can treat just as well as other things, like chiropractors and physical therapy,” he said. “We’re also addressing soft tissue. Things like chiropractic are mostly just addressing structure. We’re addressing structure, soft tissue, emotional holding – as well as energetic holding – all at the same time."
“Clients are feeling great, so that’s why things are happening. Most of my clients are referrals from other clients,” Tynan said. “It’s just about giving clients another option. Most of my clients find me because there’s nothing left. They’ve gone to everything, they’ve looked at surgery, and they think nothing else is out there, then they find my office.”
For now, as one of only three specialists in the state, Tynan said he refers to only one other therapist locally, but hopes more massage therapists learn specialties. Someday, he said, if demand calls, he may expand his practice.
