MANASSAS, Va. – Virginia Senator Charles Colgan joined business owner Brian Cooper, CMT, LMT, Mr. Cooper’s staff, members of the Board of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce, and community citizens to commemorate the opening of Mr. Cooper’s Healing Hands Medical Massage business on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.

The celebration took place at Medical Massage Specialties’ new location at 10600A Crestwood Drive in Manassas.  In addition to remarks by Senator Colgan and Mr. Cooper, the festive afternoon included a formal ribbon cutting, a lunch buffet, and tours of the facility, along with information tables featuring other health and wellness exhibit partners.  The new facility contains four beautifully designed and decorated treatment rooms in a tranquil spa atmosphere that includes a reception area, calming fountain, and quiet lounge.

The event attracted a significant crowd of business supporters.  Senator Colgan noted in his remarks that there have not been many grand openings of small businesses lately and small business openings and expansions are good for both business and the community.

Brian Cooper is nationally certified and licensed by the Board of Nursing to practice therapeutic massage in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  He hopes to become part of his client’s overall wellness program to help them better deal with the stress that is so much a part of today’s lifestyles.  Mr. Cooper notes that his D.C. Metro area clients often suffer from “commuting and computing” – two leading causes of stress, stiffness and soreness.  His goal is to alleviate these symptoms.  Medical Massage Specialties is a goal-oriented massage therapy practice that provides a variety of modalities, including, Deep Tissue/Sports Massage, Muscular Fascia Work, Prenatal Massage and Hot Stone Therapy.  These therapies may help clients ease chronic pain, muscle stiffness, and stress.

At Medical Massage Therapies, a 60 minute massage lasts the entire 60 minutes, unlike many providers that spend only 50 minutes.  The team uses only the highest quality organic jojoba and pure essential oils and their linens are always laundered in free and clear detergents.

Working with Mr. Cooper’s team are 3 additional therapists:  Fiona Jansen, a certified holistic health practitioner, who is a Usui Reiki Practitioner;  Jennifer Rader, a certified massage therapist,  who focuses on helping athletes and others who need to improve muscular health and function; and April Barker, a certified massage therapist who loves working with clients’ individual  needs to decrease chronic pain, increase range of motion and create an overall better quality of life.
