Darin Stumme, LMP

In my philosophy: Massage shouldn't hurt. Period. When your body is craving pain-reduction, it’s counter-productive to inflict pain in the name of health. By forcing tissues to stretch or move before they're ready to move, a person can actually create new injuries or invoke systemic or local traumatic stress response — the exact things I strive to help my clients heal.

Instead, I listen to my client’s body and allow it to direct my attention. This allows me to address a wide variety of physical issues and complaints -- acute injuries, chronic pains, stored traumas and anxieties held throughout the body. Whether you're extremely athletic or just somewhat, large or small, young or old: my treatment is gentle, powerful, and extremely effective.

I graduated from Discoverypoint School of Massage in 2013, although I've been training in bodywork since 2009, and I've completed several in-depth continuing education programs since graduating. I assist and teach up at Discoverypoint, and I'm very committed to ongoing learning and improvement as a practitioner.

Darin practices: Myofascial & structural decompression, Intra-oral / TMJD treatment, Lymphatic facilitation & injury treatment, Neuromuscular & Muscle Energy treatment, Craniosacral therapy, Visceral manipulation, Swedish and Sports massage.
