Complex joint recovery (CJR)
and how will it set you apart as a massage therapist?
CJR is a truly blissful and therapeutic massage modality developed by Nicolas Sorensen, LMT with nearly 20 years of experience.
1. The practitioner is trained in various techniques that utilize their arms, hands and fingers in unique holds and pressure points that affect joint tissue on multiple levels.
2. This technique weaves together several key modalities: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai, and Sports massage.
3. Lastly, it's about integrating mind, body, and spirit within your clients in a truly deep but gentle way--unlike any modality you've ever given or experienced.
CJR is a form of body work that prioritizes the health and well-being of both client and therapist in the following ways:
1. Providing deep tissue in a blissful and restorative way that doesn't cause pain, injury, or soreness with your clients, meaning they're getting long-lasting results without any pain!
2. Creates longevity in your career because you're protecting your posture, joints, and alignment. You'll be able to give back to back massages without burnout, tension, or aches and pains. You shouldn't have to wear yourself out in the process of helping others heal.
3. Enhance your toolbox for addressing the complex joints: neck, shoulders, and hips. All while blowing your clients' minds in how incredible they feel.

I trained in CJR in 2022. Nic has a unique and skilled way to work with the body. For this reason I’ve chosen to regularly receive and now practice (with my clientele) his technique. Nic blends supporting specific limbs or joints with movement to find where to precisely put the pressure to create the most amount of mobility and relaxation while gifting both comfort and precision As someone with Fibromyalgia, receiving Nic’s technique is invaluable because I need to apply pressure but I don’t want to hurt afterwards. As a massage therapist, I value gifting comfort and precision to my clients because I’ve seen it be more effective at pain relief and increasing mobility.
