Jessica Szymanski, L.M.T., M.T.I., M.M.P., Orthopedic/Manual Therapist
From a young age, Jessica has helped family and close friends with minor aches and pains in the neck and shoulders, and especially with headaches. Since 2015, where her massage therapy career began, she has been honing in on her skills in Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Hot Stone, and Myofascial Release. From the beginning she had a natural desire to help people with their pain. In 2018, as an educator at River City Massage School in San Antonio, Jessica taught on the topics of kinesiology, business, ethics, and basic massage techniques. She also began working at a chiropractic office, where she developed skills specific to neck, back, hip, and foot pain, frozen shoulder, and general conditions. In this time, she met TC through additional medical massage training and knew this was the route she wanted to go.
Jessica has a passion for assessing each client’s individual needs and working with other local professionals to create an integrated treatment plan that considers diet, activity level, and stress management. She works diligently to provide relief to cases of intense pain and stress. Her primary focus is easing into deeper and more intense work at the client’s pace.
Areas of expertise are as follows:
- Orthopedic/Medical Massage
- Deep Tissue
- PNF Stretching
- Myofascial Release Therapy
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage (X-tract)
- Trigger Point Release
CONTACT ADVANCED BODYWORK
"I always enjoy my visits and leave feeling better both physically and mentally. All of the therapists employ their own style of massage in order to make each session a unique, positive, healing experience. TC, Derrick, Matt, and Tonya have all provided me not only with excellent massages, but also knowledge on self-care in order to alleviate pain between visits."
"I have been receiving treatment from ABW for several years and for several months from Derrick to treat chronic neck and back pain that is aggravated by my job. Derrick has helped me maintain flexibility and reduced pain at work and has helped me through an acute period of back spasms by being sensitive to my needs, aware of my history, and using a variety of techniques to address my specific problems."
"I've been suffering for several months with no relief. After the first visit with Derrick, my pain was less and I felt so much better. Now I've had three visits and I can move without pain again."
"I rely on massage and manual therapy to give me relief from my spinal stenosis. The therapy I receive at ABW allows me to work and travel with minimal pain."
"I am extremely satisfied by the care I receive from Matt and Tonya. They provide excellent treatments that help me with my pain."
"I appreciate the time each therapist takes to explain things. The work feels tailored to my needs each time."
"The therapist worked on my shoulder and neck, eliminating the pain and tightness. The discomfort in my lower back that I thought was chronic has also gone away!"
"Matt is professional and attentive. I've seen him for many years now and he always helps me with aches and pains. He surprises me every time."
"I was adamantly opposed to massages, but T.C. has done a wonderful job of teaching me why they are needed. I highly recommend it."
"My sweet 82-year-old mom has had two sessions with Joël Romig. The results are nothing short of amazing. Mom has scoliosis and arthritis and was really bent over. This morning I noticed on our daily walk that Mom was standing almost completely straight--a noticeably significant difference! What a wonderful Mother's Day gift. Joël, you're the best! I've been singing your praises to everyone that will listen. Expect a lot of referrals. We are super impressed with you and Advanced Bodywork!"
"I have been receiving manual lymphatic drainage treatment from ABW for about a year now. I have seen constant improvement with every session. The therapy I have received from Tonya Cary has been remarkable and the explanation on the lymphatic system has given me knowledge on the treatment I am receiving. This has given me relief from chronic swelling and has allowed me to live a more comfortable life."
