Steve Maschmeyer is internationally recognized as a soft-tissue pain management therapist. In 2014, together with colleague and business partner Dakun Maschmeyer (CMTPT, LMT), founded Indy Myopain Relief Center. Our mission is to provide myofascial trigger point treatment for hospital medical practices, pain-focused physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, dentists, pharmacists, yoga and palate instructors, physical trainers, physical therapists and high school, collegiate coaches.
Together, Dakun Maschmeyer and I have built the expertise and reputation of Indy Myopain relief Center as the only practice in the greater Indianapolis area exclusively focused on the rehabilitation of soft-tissue dysfunction associated with medically diagnose injury and myofascial pain syndrome.
In 1970, I earned a BS degree in biology and also completed my master’s work in 1974 at Butler University. I worked 11 years at Methodist Hospital’s pathology department as a clinical chemist. In February 2014, I graduated MYO Seminar’s Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy seminar. In 8-7-14, I became the third in Indiana to nationally certify as a CMTPT. Also in 2014, I received additional Trigger Point Training by Internationally renowned Trigger Point and Neuromuscular Therapists: Stew Wild and Katie Plummer Adams wile attending Dr's. Jan Dammerholt's and Robert Gerwin's Myopain Seminar. July 19, 2016 I received The Diploma of Medical & Sports Massage from the Indiana College of Sports & Medical Massage with honors. I am a member of the ABMP, National Association of Trigger Point Therapists, and the International Myopain Society. In 2015, I received training in Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy.
I get my biggest kick when my client tells me they are 30%, 60%, 80% 100% better! What a thrill! I have a passion to help people become totally pain free!
