Massage therapist Chrisdin Dier at Soothing Touch Massage eases away muscle tension and mental stress with services designed to help clients relax and rebalance. The technician references Lakota wisdom during raindrop therapy for approximately 70 minutes, drizzling aromatic essential oils in a specific sequence while performing kneading motions. The touch and scent combination helps to hush anxiety, and the liquid's antimicrobial properties also aid in killing off viruses, reducing inflammation, and exterminating any lingering fears of Y2K or B2K.
Healing hands perform one-hour Swedish massages, using long connective strokes to bring peace to achy joints as brains venture off to a calm peninsula. Hot-stone therapy builds on the basic method, incorporating heated basalt rocks to melt knots and untangle complicated feelings and emotions.
Soothing Touch Massage
When it comes to muscles, licensed massage therapist Chrisdin Dier rarely comes across a knot she can’t untie. Depending on her client’s needs, she may call upon Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage techniques to relieve tension and soothe sore muscle tissue. When her strokes are not enough by themselves, she enhances her sessions with aromatherapy and raindrop therapy, both of which bring non-tactile senses into the mix.
