Award Winning Newport Beach Therapeutic Massage

Hi, My name is Cheryl Campbell-Lane and I operate a Rolfing Newport Beach therapeutic massage clinic.
In the mid 70’s, I married a medical doctor from Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, Ca. The terms therapeutic massage and alternative medicine was just beginning to emerge in the medical field as something different from the traditional medical model of prescribed drugs and surgery. The term hypnosis was introduced to me , but only doctors had the privilege of learning that technique. I was intrigued by its claim to help people heal but I was not a doctor so I thought I’d never be able to learn how to use it. How times have changed in 40 years in the medical field. Since those days, I have been trained in hypnosis, therapeutic massage, and many other alternative healing techniques. The medical model has exploded in the prescribed drugs and over using the need for surgery. Now, we see in our country over use of prescribed drugs and often needless surgeries. In 2014, I was told by an Orthopedic surgeon that I need both shoulders replaced and that it was serious. I had the usual X-rays and MRI and physical therapy and prescribed medicine to help with the pain. I chose physical therapy in water after I had tried the typical approach with weights and stretching. I did not care for the attitude of the physical therapist, a kind of holier than thou person so I went to a place that offers healing in the water. Since I was a former surfer, trained scuba diver and water lover of all sorts, this was a great way for me to work out the pain. After a few months of water therapy, I cancelled the shoulder surgery. Another thing I had to do was start eliminating clients that were difficult for me to work on and that included mostly big men and some women who were difficult. It helped me to start looking at what I needed rather than taking on so many negative people. It’s important to have an environment that you love to work in and makes you feel good about what you’re doing. It’s important to be true to yourself.

Newport Alternative Healing and Silva PractitionerIn the early 70’s, I was trained in a technique called Silva Mind Control which is still taught today. I learned a lot about using my mind to rewire the subconscious, release negative programming, and many other uses. This training ultimately led me to Hawaii where I continued learning healing techniques and I was introduced to the Hawaiian way of healing which is still a big part of my Newport Beach therapeutic massage practice. One approach was hands on called Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and the other was the spiritual way of healing called Huna. I studied from Hawaiian healers called Kahunas. The Hawaiians were very respectful of their land and their ancestors and proud of their healing ways that were passed down from many generations. I was honored and blessed to learn from them and learning reverence for life. This was their philosophy and I adopted this approach as I traversed through my life’s purpose and my journey over the last 40 years as this has become my life’s work.

Deep Tissue Massage Newport Beach

Newport Beach therapeutic massageWhile I lived in Hawaii, I was introduced to a man called Dr. Milton Trager who taught me the Trager Approach to healing. Here was a medical doctor that believed in hands on healing and I learned this technique from him. I was also working for an Orthopedic doctor for about 10 years where I researched what techniques worked the best on patients who had been in accidents. Most people preferred deep muscle work which I happen to be very strong and that worked well for me too. Trager Approach is known for a gentle rocking approach and that works well for people who don’t want the deep work and that’s fine too. I generally find that incorporating these techniques at my Newport Beach therapeutic massage clinic helps people to relax and makes their therapeutic massage session even more effective. Through these and other techniques I provide the kind of effective deep tissue massage Newport Beach active people appreciate in order to stay healthy and injury free.

Rolfing Newport Beach

Eventually, I was introduced to Rolfing and the lady who told me about it said it was the best technique in the world. I knew nothing about this and was curious about what was the best technique because I had to have the best training since I was so dedicated to this as being my life’s purpose. After 10 years of training with the Hawaiians and a medical doctor, I moved back to the mainland to study Rolfing in Colorado and that was in 1989. At that time, not much was known about Rolfing; Newport Beach was much smaller after all, I was given the opportunity of renting an office from a Marriage and Family counselor in Fashion Island, Newport Beach about two blocks from where my former husband had his medical office. I have been at this Newport Beach therapeutic massage practice for almost 30 years. If you are looking for ancient healing practices or just great deep tissue massage Newport Beach has it all!

As I look through the years of being an alternative healer, I feel the Reverence for Life that the Hawaiians taught me has been my guiding light.I have great respect for the body/mind and spirit and I have studied these approaches over 40 years.One thing I learned is that one approach doesn’t work for everyone and there are many ways of alternative healing other than the medical model which has its place too. Don’t get me wrong on this, doctors have saved my life on a couple of emergency room visits to the hospital but there is more to healing than medical doctors. Not one person has it all but everyone can work together. In the earlier days of my journey, I used to think I had to be the one to heal the person but over the years, I’ve learned that it takes a team of dedicated health professionals on many levels, to work together to heal just one person. At my Newport Beach therapeutic massage practice you will find the type of comprehensive, integrative care that you need.

deep tissue massage Newport BeachOver the almost 40 years since I’ve been involved in Rolfing at my Newport Beach therapeutic massage clinic and around the world, I have probably worked on about half a million people from all over the world and I love my work today as much as I did when I first started in the early 70’s. I am so grateful to my clients and friends who have taught me to deepen my understanding about the human condition and to love unconditionally. For this, I am grateful and humbly ask God to continue to use me to help people heal. What I’d like to share with you, is that it is important to listen to your heart and follow your dreams. There is always a guiding light to show you the way, you just have to open your heart and listen.

Thank you for allowing me to share my life’s work with you. I hope this is what your asking for, and I look forward to seeing you at my Newport Beach therapeutic massage clinic very soon!.

 

Warmly,
Cheryl
