Licensed massage therapist Garrett Blanton relieves soreness in muscles with one of five modalities: relaxation, deep-tissue, myofascial, sports, or MLD massage. The latter is a specialized form of bodywork that incorporates gentle, rhythmic pressures and hand movements. The process can potentially help with pain as well as swelling and inflammation from injury, recent surgery, or lymphedema.

Though Garrett Blanton, LMT, CLT's expertise includes modalities such as deep-tissue and relaxation massage, he specializes in myofascial therapy, which treats the connective tissue that ties together all bodily systems. He likens the human body to a sausage: "Things can't move around right if the casing's too tight," he says, not to mention the fact that it bursts when held over a campfire. Garrett’s clients stretch out on a biomat, whose amethyst crystals work to draw out toxins and relieve pain as his nimble fingers work. Placing hot or cold packs on sore spots as needed, he assuages muscles with raw and organic shea or cocoa butter, eschewing perfumes that might lead to allergic reactions or bees attempting to pollenate your bellybutton.
