Slight of Hand Massage
Though all licensed massage therapists work to ease their clients' everyday stress, Christine Sortwell also seeks out the medical issues that cause pain. She holds certifications in illness-focused modalities such as arthrossage, which treats arthritis pain, and oncology massage, which seeks to ease cancer pain. She is also skilled in medical massage and rotator-cuff-release technique. Christine customizes each of these medically focused massages to her clients' needs and rubs away muscle pain using individualized blends of lymphatic drainage, Swedish, therapeutic, and chair massage techniques. During each session, she asks the patron for constant feedback on the massage's pressure and enhances the benefits with touches such as a heated massage table, locally produced BC Essentials aromatherapy blends, and an audiobook dispelling most legends about hook-handed asylum escapees.
