Evidence-Based Pain Management at Moyer Total Wellness

Moyer Total Wellness specializes in treating pain. Dr. Moyer used evidence-based treatment guidelines published by the American Medical Association to create a 4-Step Protocol for treating musculoskeletal pain.


The Moyer Total Wellness 4-Step Protocol

  1. Remove the Knots
  2. Lengthen the Short Tissues
  3. Mobilize the Effected Joints
  4. Strengthen the Weak Muscles

Our massage therapists pass a series of tests to become Moyer Certified. These tests train therapists to analyze a persons’ musculoskeletal system to determine which muscles have become short and which muscles have become weak. These muscular imbalances lead to abnormal wear and tear on joint structures and the creation of painful knots.

The therapists are experienced at treating painful knots, lengthening muscles that have become short, and mobilizing effected joints. Home exercises are used to continue the process of lengthening shortened tissues, and strengthening weakened muscles. Our clients that commit to the exercises get the longest lasting results.

Our clients typically start with a New Patient Exam with Randy Moyer, DC. During this 45-minute appointment, your musculoskeletal will be evaluated, including muscle length assessments, to determine the cause of your pain. Typical treatments involve joint manipulation, myofascial release, physiotherapy, dry needling and home exercise prescription. Follow up appointments can either be with Dr. Moyer, a massage therapist, acupuncturist, Rolfer, or Yoga therapist.


Our Signature Massage

Our Signature Massage is a customized blend of the therapists’ skillset in order to effectively remove knots from the affected area, lengthen the tissues that have become shortened, mobilize joints that are out of alignment. In addition, as part of any regular service at MTW, we will always give at least two exercises: one to lengthen the tight tissues and one to strengthen the weak tissues.

Whether you are seeing a Massage Therapist, Acupuncturist, Rolfer®, or Doctor of Chiropractic at MTW, we will start with a consultation to determine why you are here (90% of new clients first come to MTW because they have pain). We will use our 4-Step Evidence-Based Approach during your service, and you will leave with a better understanding of what is causing your pain, and what you can do outside of our office to continue effectively treating the condition.

*Very Important: At the time of booking, please discuss the type of massage or other service you are expecting when you schedule your appointment. This will ensure we match you with the most appropriate staff member for your needs.

We require a Credit Card on file to schedule any appointment at MTW. If you need to reschedule, please notify the office at least 24 hours prior to your appointment start time to avoid the Late Cancellation Fee.

Gratuity is never expected but always appreciated. When possible, our massage therapists prefer to receive cash tips or tips through Venmo. We can also help you with gratuity on a card at the front desk.
