We currently have one Licensed Massage Practitioner available offering treatment massage. Our therapist applies massage treatment techniques from multiple modalitites to help with a wide variety of conditions associated with desk jobs, sedentary lifestyle, and degenerative issues. They can work in a range of depth to match your tolerance and physical condition. While we can provide relaxation massage, our primary focus is to effect a long term change to improve our clients' quality of life. We have experience working with sciatica, thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel, TMJ pain, entrapment neuropathy, and sports injury recovery.
Rafael uses a combination of relaxation and deep tissue techniques to encourage his clients to a more balanced position in their own bodies. He works with his clients over multiple sessions to build on previous work and improve flexibility, balance, and space. Depth and pressure are modulated to fit the specific client and technique on any given day, working within and helping to expand the theraputic edge. Techniques used are drawn from a number of modalities, including Swedish, Structural Bodywork, Myofacial Release, Trigger and Tender point therapies, Neuromuscular Reeducation, Manual Lymphatic Drainage and others, building a toolbox of possibilities from which to work.
Massage can assist in relaxation and recovery, throughout the healing process, from shortly after an injury to years down the line. Whatever your needs, we will be happy to do a consultation and assessment and discus how massage can assist. Usually by the time someone seeks treatment massage their issue has become chronic. This generally means that it will take multiple sessions to resolve and we will likely have recommendations for things you can do to help this healing process along.
We are happy to work together with other health care professionals in your pursuit of wellness. We feel great satisfaction when we can participate in creating positive change in someone's life by using massage to do such things as reduce pain and increase mobility.~ Back to Services ~
