What you can expect:

Depending on your needs, I will use traditional massage techniques like sports massage or deep tissue massage as well as manipulations to help your body recover from or prevent injury or long-standing conditions. This is designed to improve blood flow in your muscles and tissues, the relationship between your nervous system and your muscles, as well as the fascia – the passive fabric that holds your body together and gives it its shape.
