Valley Massage Clinic’s four licensed-and-certified therapists call upon an arsenal of gliding strokes and firm pressures to ease clients’ unique ailments. The therapists practice their craft within the tranquil confines of five private treatment rooms, each of which hosts a plush massage table. Having rehabilitated sore backs and shoulders for 14 years, the team draws on a wealth of experience and knowledge to customize massages. Each session may incorporate a combination of deep-tissue pressure, craniosacral therapy, and relaxation techniques designed to alleviate the stress of traffic jams and heal injuries incurred while hurling other cars off the freeway.
