Complements for Health
Real Therapy…Real Results
At Complements for Health, we believe that optimal health care weaves together the art and science of traditional and alternative medicine. Traditional and alternative methods can complement each other perfectly, and achieve results that neither could alone. This integrative approach can provide comprehensive mind/body health care which is successful in treating complex health issues such as chronic pain.
Our mission is to facilitate the health and well-being of others by: 1) providing online access to a variety of information and product resources for every area of your life and 2) offering massage therapy, PT services, and clinical nutrition at our location at 193 Kinsley Street (Lower Level) in Nashua, NH 03060.
Andrea Paduchak, owner of Complements for Health, is a licensed physical therapist (PT) and licensed massage therapist (LMT). Her unique background includes extensive training in anatomy and physiology, injury assessment & treatment, and over 20 years experience in manual therapy. This provides her clients/patients with a higher level of individualized care and successful achievement of their goals – from stress reduction to injury rehabilitation.
She delivers “Real Therapy for Real Results”.
Along with blending the art and science of hands-on modalities, Andrea also focuses heavily on educating clients about proper self-care that they should do at home or office to complement the bodywork they receive. This added benefit may include recommendations of specific exercises and stretches, postural correction and ergonomics, use of heat/ice, etc. No cookie-cutter treatments here!! In this way, the care provided extends way beyond the treatment time. By gaining an understanding of their muscles, clients are empowered to better help themselves during daily life.
Get More For Your Massage Dollar! Why go to a massage chain at the mall if you need more than just relaxation for the ‘issues in your tissues’? Likewise, why go to a ‘fly-by-night’ therapist who might be open one day and gone the next – or who does massage ‘on the side’?
For over 20 years, Andrea has been a full-time owner of Complements For Health and is committed to helping everyone who comes through the door get the results they are looking for. See for yourself the difference state-of-the-art equipment and skills make! For example, an ADA-compliant electric treatment table ensures client/patient safety, comfort, and ease of getting on/off.
The massage therapy offered at Complements For Health includes a wide variety of styles such as: Myofascial Release, Ashiatsu (barefoot Oriental Bar massage), Prenatal/Postnatal, Hot Stone, Lymph Drainage, Classic Swedish and, of course, Andrea’s signature specialties – Clinical Massage and the Ultra Deep Tissue/Sports massage for individuals who want to be pain-free and achieve peak performance in everything they do. You can learn more about these massage services by viewing Types of Massage on the link above.
Have you ever been dissatisfied with the outcome of your Physical Therapy rehabilitation after injury or surgery (i.e. discharged without being 100%)? For common musculoskeletal conditions such as sprains/strains and tendinitis, manual therapy including Joint Mobilization and Massage can become the necessary “post-rehab” rehabilitation. Traditional PT Modalities such as Ultrasound and Electrical Stimulation, Kinesiology Taping, as well as Exercise Prescription are also available as appropriate to the patient.
Would you like to understand how to help yourself progress to a full recovery? Andrea can offer a lot of feedback after each session and a lot of tools and resources are offered right here on our Website. We now carry whole food supplements from Standard Process and MediHerb for all your nutritional supplement needs – please see Andrea for a nutritional consult.
