Meet Shannon Strong
Shannon is a graduate of the National Personal Training Institute in Norwalk, CT and the CT Center for Massage Therapy in Newington CT. Her specialty is orthopedic massage with a focus on neck and back pain. She is a former competitive lumberjill and now enjoys training high school level timber sports.
Small Group training consists of beginner to advanced levels. ATAC means As many Times As you Can! No one gets left behind because Shannon meets you where you are at in your setting. She may modify an exercise 3, 4 or even 5 different ways. You may start from a wall or chair and advance to the floor with strength gains. The progression is gentle yet amazing!
For those not quite ready for group training, Shannon recommends personal training. For some individuals who may need more one on one attention to build the strength and confidence and work up to small group sessions. A block of 5 sessions is enough to gain that confidence to move forward. Shannon is trained to meet your goals one step at a time.
At the wellness studio, Shannon offers modalities from Swedish massage to deep tissue. She offers therapists on site and her specialty of orthopedic and deep tissue. No matter what type of massage you are looking for, she will team you with the best therapist with the client as her first priority. What are your goals?

Shannon loves working on necks. Her training under COMT (Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy with Joe Muscolino DC), David Graston and FATKR has taught her fundamentals to increase range of motion and decrease pain in as little as 1-3 sessions. Some clients that are chronic may receive up to 4-6 sessions as every case is different.
- Do you suffer with headaches?
- Are you unable to turn your head to one side making it difficult to drive?
- Unable to sleep at night?
When Shannon has a cervical or neck case, she works on all muscles affected with SASTM (sound assisted soft tissue mobilization) and/or FAKTR (functional and kinetic treatment with rehabilitation). She is able to use a combination of tools. She uses all types of stretching, including static & PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) to increase function. Add in grade lV joint mobilization. Chiropractors uses grade V which includes thrust. Shannon's work is much preferred by her clients because it feels good and may be just as effective, yet gentler than a chiropractic thrust.
If you have neck pain or you cannot sleep at night due to any type of pain, you might want to book a session with her, her clients tell her she is Amazing!
