A licensed massage therapist performs your choice of three massage modalities at a peaceful clinic inside Spunk Fitness. Freestyle massages soothe the whole body with customizable strokes pulled from a number of various modalities, including Swedish, Esalen, and Balinese. During the deep-tissue massage, the therapist uses medium to heavy pressure to reach deep into the muscle tissue, loosening adhesions and realigning the connective tissue. The therapist can also place heated stones on especially tense muscles, then massage the soft tissue with the stones and his or her hands.
With 13 years of experience, Robert Pumphrey knows a thing or two about chilling out. As a licensed massage therapist, he uses soothing strokes to help clients release stress. At Haptic Bodywork, his massage and bodywork clinic, he draws upon more than a half dozen massage modalities to target aches and anxiety. Services range from reflexology sessions, which can improve posture and reduce foot-based tension, to Hawaiian lomi-lomi massage, a series of gentle, rhythmic strokes that mimic the Pacific Ocean's waves, in that they feel great after you roam aimlessly through the desert for six weeks.
