Dan is very knowledgeable, and always explains what he is doing and more so, why it works...Dan is always professional, and I would highly recommend him to others. SM
Wow!! I just wish I hadn't waited so long. I had been having leg pain for about six months before I even considered seeing Mr. Pigeon. After consultation, it turned out to be sciatic nerve . On the first visit, I was amazed at how well my leg felt. Then I was asking myself "why did I wait so long, as much pain as I was in"? Mr. Pigeon is very respectful, explains about your muscles and why you are having muscle pain and how he can fix it. He also tells you as he goes what he is doing so there are no surprises. I was skeptical at first but I am so glad I have been going. I have no pain with my leg and I actually feel like doing something when I get home from work. \Thank you Mr. Pigeon for all you have done for me and my pain. TB
Daniel has done great work for me! I had been struggling with pain in my arm because of throwing a baseball with my son. The pain has lasted over a year and a half! It hurt to put on a shirt, it hurt to wash my hair. After only one treatment I had more pain-free movement in my arm than I've had in over a year and half! I can now put on a shirt without pain, can wash my hair without pain. I am completely pleased! TK
Prior to the beginning of treatment, I had suffered a knee injury to my left knee that dealt a blow to training for my second marathon...the treatment successfully isolated my knee injury and helped it recover more quickly...I am very excited to return to racing. FH
Dan's methods of treating muscle pain have helped me where physical therapy and osteopathic methods have failed. I am very thankful that I was able to be treated by Dan and will return for therapy and recommend him to others. JO
Daniel has been a great support with reducing the tension, discomfort, and pain my seven year old daughter had in her neck. This discomfort would prevent her from getting the rest she needed and at times would increase anxiety and compulsive movement that she struggled with. During the past month these movements decreased and she has not complained of any further pain or discomfort. Daniel really worked his magic and we appreciate him! JC
People of all ages can develop muscle pain and tightness. EVEN BABIES!!! Our therapy has helped thousands of clients with:
Daniel Received his Bachelors of Nursing and RN license in North Carolina. He worked in many Intensive care units in major hospitals including Duke University Hospital and The Regional Medical Center Of Memphis. He received his Massage therapy license in 2012. Has focused on his continuing education on medical massage for all ages.
I often get questions from clients about activities they can do to help decrease their pain and increase their own range of motion. Please remember, You should always get permission from your doctor before starting new activities or therapy. Each person has unique circumstances, not all activities are good for them.
ALL of my clients will tell you that drinking water is the first activity we discuss. The suggested daily minimum of water is half your body weight in ounces. Example: 150lb person would drink 75 ounces of water (roughly 4[-20 oz bottles). My clients will also tell you that I do not count tea or soda in that daily minimum. In fact, they count against that amount because most have caffeine which makes you pee.
I will share some techniques that have proven to give the best results. Anyone that has been to see me knows that their body heals itself much quicker with a daily schedule of healthy activities and stretches. Here are some techniques that my clients have shared with me.
Lower Back and Hips
Mom wrote " Ok, so I just had an amazing experience and I don't know where else to share it. My daughter, baby E, has had extremely bad colic since she was born. She has horrible reflux and cries at least 6 hours a day. She's been to different Drs and specialists and all they've done is give her extremely high doses of Zantac and Levisin drops. Recently I decided that I had had enough, and decided to take a more holistic approach. I found this AMAZING man in Gray, TN, Daniel Pigeon. He's a massage and muscle expert that works on infants through adults. I was skeptical. Y'all, I took her. And she cried at first and then something happened. She stopped crying. She's no longer tense, and she didn't need her medicine this evening because she wasn't in any pain.
Here is the amazing part. I went there expecting a 30 minute massage and to pay $30 because that's what I read on his website. I get there, and he does the massage, she fusses and he finds her problems. Apparently above her shoulders and spots near her tailbone were so tense that she couldn't even bend her knees to her chest. I had no idea. She's been that way since birth. He ended up working on her for over an hour. He told me how he loves babies because when he looks in their eyes he can see God. He said this is the first thing he's done in his life that isn't about the money and gives him peace to do. I had the most amazing vibe from him anyways. He then refused to accept any money and told me to bring her back at the end of the week to check on her shoulder blades and lower back. I plan to pay him anyways because he's brought her peace that no Dr or drug could give her. I can actually see the relief on my baby's face. I just had to share this with someone. If you have a baby who struggles with colic and stuff, Daniel Pigeon can help. I just can't believe it still. My baby E is a whole new baby.
Update: It's now three days later and I've taken both my children back. You can definitely tell that baby E feels better! She has not hardly cried at all outside of being tired/ wet/ hungry. She hasn't needed any of her medicines. I definitely recommend visit to Daniel Pigeon if your baby is suffering from reflux and colic. This has most definitely saved my sanity."
There are several schools of thought as to how babies develop tight muscles. The two best reasons:
A. The baby gets "stuck" a compromised position in the womb during the last trimester due to limited space.
B. The muscles are stretched or compressed during labor/delivery.
Newborn Burping Techniques
"So very thankful to Daniel for helping my son Baby H, who has reflux. We were at our wits end with Baby H's large amount of spit up all day every day and the medicine that his pediatrician put him on was not working. On the first treatment we saw immediate results. Baby H ,went from massive amounts of spit up to occasionally spitting up. Baby H wasn’t able to lay on his belly because he would spit up too much and now baby H, can lay on his belly for 20 minutes or more without a single drop of spit up. Daniel was gentle with baby H, and talked us through what he was doing. I would refer Daniel to anyone before I would recommend putting a child on any medicine."
Baby J was treated two days after delivery. While in no outward signs of pain, he required almost constant breast feeding to keep him from crying. After the first 30 min treatment, he slept for 5 hours that night.
Baby C presented with very frequent vomiting and a diagnosis of failure to thrive. after his first 30 minute treatment, his mom noted his vomiting frequency had decreased. After second treatment, Baby C had started gaining weight.
"Baby S had constipation issues. He slept or 3 hours after treatment and pooped shortly after waking up"
