The Massage Therapist
Patricia Perdomo, NMT
As patients at Somers Chiropractic and Wellness
know, massage therapy is essential to injury recovery, improvement in
circulation and flexibility, and overall health and vitality, and when patients
need massage therapy treatments, Dr. Somers turns to his trusted and talented
massage therapist, Patricia Perdomo. Patricia,
a native of Colombia, is fluent in Spanish, and has over seven years experience
as a massage therapist, treating patients with a wide range of health issues
from the mild to the severe. Patricia received
her Certification from the highly accredited Academy of Somatic Healing Arts
with specializations in Neuromuscular, Kinesiology, and Pregnancy Massage
Therapies. Like Dr. Somers, Patricia is committed to providing patients with
the most comprehensive care to achieve the best total body results.
Patricia Perdomo, known as
Patty to her patients, is no stranger to what it takes to recover from an
injury. Though it may be hard to believe
when seeing Patty smiling and laughing with others, and even more difficult to
imagine when experiencing one of her incredible massages, shortly after Patty
had her first child, she was stricken with the dangerous illness
meningitis. As a result of the illness,
Patty suffered a stroke, and over the course of 2 years had to relearn basic
tasks as walking and talking.
Several years after
recovering from this deadly illness, Patty and her family moved to Georgia, where Patty had the opportunity to begin studying
at one of the most respected massage therapy schools in Georgia, Academy of Somatic Healing Arts (ASHA), and it
was while she was attending ASHA that Patty experienced a second severe injury.
After losing her balance,
Patty experienced a painful fall leaving her barely able to move. Immediately, Patty called one of her ASHA
professors and explained what had happened. The professor, a chiropractor, asked Patty to come by his office. In extreme pain, Patty managed to drive to
her professor's office, but when she arrived, she was in such severe pain that
the professor had to assist her in getting out of the car and into the office.
The professor preformed a
chiropractic adjustment on Patty, and within 15 minutes, she was able to walk
again and had drastically less pain. After
experiencing the amazing affects of Chiropractic she knew she wanted to work
with a Chiropractor to help people recover from injuries, as she had, as well
as helping those without serious injury to maintain their overall health.
Patty knows first hand
that the path to recovery can be difficult, but with the commitment and care of
medical professionals that strive to provide their patients with the highest
quality of treatment and results, recovery is not only possible but well within
reach, and Patty, like Dr. Somers, has made a personal commitment to providing
this kind of care.
