This improves circulation, diminishes stress, and relieves muscle tension. Perfect for: first time massage sessions, stress-relief, deep relaxation, anxiety and depression, improved sleep, and lowering blood pressure.
Deep tissue massage builds on my signature treatment by releasing chronic muscle tension and increasing range of motion with deep pressure. This therapeutic treatment focuses on painful or stiff areas of the body and relieves patterns of physical stress. Perfect for: chronic pain, injury-based relief, athletes, chronic illness, and increased range of motion.
