This massage uses the combination of a true classic firm Swedish Massage, Deep Touch, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point Therapy. The movements are very slow and purposeful. I also use alot of holding and waiting so the fascia can release naturally on its own. I believe that it is not necessary to create pain in order for lasting benefits from bodywork. The work can sometimes be intense but with my guidance and your willingnes to use your breath and mentally and emotionally let go your results wil be profound and long lasting.
