Swedish massage aims to stimulate circulation, break up localized adhesions, and eliminate waste through an arsenal of five soothing strokes. A meditative approach to massage, zen shiatsu draws on traditional Chinese medicinal principles and employs techniques that trace energy pathways in the body in an effort to realign them and remove blockages.
Lake Merritt Massage
Before Aaron Harris ever rescued a sore back with massage, he dashed to the aid of others as a paramedic. Today, he applies his knowledge of kinesiology and physiology with a backdrop of soothing sounds rather than sirens to help his clients recover from injuries and battle chronic pain. To ensure top-notch treatments, he staffs his office with current students and alumni of the National Holistic Institute who also studied kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology. These trained therapists are skilled in massage modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, zen shiatsu, and Thai. And when they aren't kneading sinews, they perform holistic techniques such as energy work, aromatherapy, crystal healing, and reiki. They can also leave their office to mend muscles and mobilize joints on-location at events, such as a tin-man convention.
