Biography

Orion finds value and enjoys helping people who are in need of relief. Having experienced firsthand how much a back injury or a neck pain can interfere with one’s quality of life; he pays particular attention to what’s going on in your body and finds the best way to bring you relief.

Orion received his certification in massage therapy at the Cortiva Institute in Watertown and has advanced training in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage and Myofascial Release. Having had the unique opportunity of growing up within a household of holistically-minded parents including a mother and father who are skilled bodyworkers & massage therapists, Orion experienced first-hand the healing benefits. This early exposure left a lasting impression on him, which has led to a continual exploration of how the body heals through massage, yoga, and meditation.

Orion is also a certified Yoga teacher and a life long practitioner of martial arts. In his free time he enjoys the outdoors, running, watching a movie, or a quiet meditation.

Services Offered

Services Offered:

Deep Tissue Massage

Quite different from “a Therapeutic Massage with Extra Pressure,” our Deep Tissue Massage focuses on releasing muscle restrictions (adhesions) and re-balancing structural tension (holding patterns) running through the several layers of soft tissue (muscle). Deep Tissue Massage requires a much slower pace than our Therapeutic Massage and more than one session is usually necessary for better results and/or resolution. Very effective if you have strained a muscle resulting in limited (and possibly painful) movement.

IMPORTANT: While it is not unusual for some people to experience bruising and pain for several days following treatment it does not happen to everyone. Soon the pain will decrease and you will begin to experience a range of movement you haven’t had for a very long while. Eventually, that every-day pain thing will be just a distant memory.

PLEASE NOTE: 30-MINUTES WILL ONLY ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO WORK ON ONE REGION OF THE BODY (muscles of your thigh, calf, forearms or hands, etc.). One hour is highly recommended for your first session.

Integrative Bodywork

AN ACUTE INJURY USUALLY OCCURS WHEN WE’VE PUSHED OUR MUSCLES BEYOND THEIR NORMAL RANGE-OF-MOTION OFTEN RESULTING IN PAIN.

Integrative Bodywork combines several healing bodywork modalities with therapeutic massage. Some of those modalities might include: CranioSacral therapy, Trigger Point therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Positional Release, Neuromuscular Facilitation, Reiki, and acupressure. Very effective in treating some chronic pain issues such as sciatica, acute injuries such as whiplash, sports-related injuries, carpal tunnel and other repetitive stress injuries (RSIs), plus physical traumas such as accidents involving falling-down, bicycling, and automobiles.

1-hour usually gives the therapist enough time to focus on those areas of the body associated with the pain or injury. Several treatments are often necessary to understand and resolve the issue(s).

This is one of our most appreciated massages. Our 1-hour Prenatal Massage can help you sleep better and even boost your energy. Change, even a welcome change, is stressful. A soothing massage which helps your muscles adapt to the changes your body is undergoing, and can help you more easily adjust to the many physical and emotional changes happening to your body during pregnancy.

Pregnancy creates a multitude of changes in the body, mind and spirit. Let us help you adjust to them gracefully with reduced pain and discomfort.  Prenatal Massage can help you sleep better and boost your energy. Your therapist will communicate with you about where you are in your pregnancy and will make adjustments to your session accordingly. Depending upon your need for comfort, prenatal massage can be done in a side-lying position, bolstered with pillows and blankets. Your health & comfort is our first priority.

If you are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, please be aware that massage can be contraindicated in certain situations. It that’s the case, we must ask that you please be prepared with a written note from your doctor stating that massage is not contraindicated for you at this time.

Sports Massage

If you’re a runner, we are going to concentrate on your legs; if you’re a swimmer, we will spend more time on your upper body and hips; a cyclist, your hip flexors, quads, ITB, calves and upper trapezius will likely be targeted.

A sports massage therapist may use their forearm or the palm of their hand to bear down on the muscles in your legs and back to separate and relax them and their fingers to put direct pressure on a muscle in spasm, which can be painful but will reduce your pain later. Along with massage we’ll combine deep tissue massage and stretching when necessary to help maximize your muscles’ potential.

PLEASE NOTE: A 1-hour session is recommended for your initial session/evaluation.

Stress-reduction Massage

This is the kind you’re most likely to encounter at a spa. Stress-reduction massage can also induce a state of mind called the Relaxation Response, which has been shown to minimize the effects of stress and boost your immune system. Everyone knows that a stressful day will cause the muscles in your shoulders and neck to tighten. For some, symptoms can even include a tense jaw, back ache, fatigue and headaches. When you’re feeling overwhelmed and even simple movement is stiff, our Stress-reduction Massage is likely to bring you immediate relief.

For more severe or chronic pain you should consider our Therapeutic Massage.

Therapeutic Massage

OUR SIGNATURE MASSAGE. Blends a general Swedish-based massage with muscular therapy techniques to reduce significant tension due to either muscle strain or excessive stress. Some discomfort may result during treatment but a renewed sense of ease and feeling relaxed should last for several days. All sessions are customized for individual needs.

With that in mind, we ask that you please communicate with your therapist about the technique and pressure to be used. You may need to upgrade to one of our Advanced Bodywork modalities (see Integrative Bodywork or Deep Tissue Massage) if your pain involves several muscles or fascial lines. But if your wish is to feel relaxed and still have some of your pain & tension reduced our Therapeutic Massage is probably right for you.

PLEASE NOTE: 1-hour is recommended when it’s your initial session.

At MTW we strongly feel that because you have a tension pattern that is unique to you, your session should be customized to meet your individual needs/issues. Our therapists are skilled in many healing modalities which they combine to provide you with a truly therapeutic experience for your mind, body and spirit. Our hope is to educate and encourage you to be an active participant in your own health and wellness.

Testimonials

Orion is very professional and incredibly sincere when it comes to offering advice on how to deal with nagging injuries and discomfort. He seems to have an innate ability to focus on the areas that are most in need of attention. I highly recommend Orion. Pure magic.—Christian S. (Somerville)

Orion does a masterful job of working all the knots out of my back and shoulders. And unlike other massage sessions I’ve had in the past, where the effects only lasted a day (or less!), Orion’s massage seems to have really unlocked something in my back such that I’m feeling as limber and good on Day 2 as I did walking out of the room.—Jarasa K.

I had an incredible therapeutic massage with Orion. I had been suffering from complications from Lyme Disease and, by the time I went to him, was in severe pain from arthritis and attendant muscle spasm. I hadn’t slept in two days due to the pain and could barely walk from my car to the elevator. I didn’t think I’d be able to lie still for the massage. However, once Orion began to work on my back and hips, my muscles immediately began to relax. He listened very carefully to what I communicated to him, and checked in with me throughout the massage. I felt a great deal of compassion and kindness from him.—D. F.

I have had plenty of massages before in my entire life and I feel so lucky I landed in his hands. Orion is definitely one the best massage therapist I’ve ever had. I was originally looking for a relaxation massage when I booked the appointment. Them, I met him and he asked about any current injuries. I had actually twisted my ankle while running a couple of weeks earlier. He spent about half of the time concentrated in my ankle, foot, and leg and it felt unbelievably GOOD right after. He was amazingly professional and found the problem right away. He listened to me every minute while exploring the problem area, then treated it and made me feel a lot better than I expected when I got there. He is an incredible therapist. After we finished the massage, he brought me an anatomy book and not only showed me the exact muscle I had injured but also thought me how to properly stretch to continue working on my problem areas. He is a wonderful therapist and I will definitely continue seen him as often as I can. I strongly recommend you try him!—Daniela D. (Medford)

Orion is amazing – he is great to talk to (if you want to talk), remembers your preferences for focusing on certain parts of the body, and is good at explaining why you feel pain/tension in certain places (and stretches that can relieve said pain!)—Suzanne L. (Somerville)
