At A Kneaded Massage, licensed massage therapist Patsy Ann Dugger eases the stresses and strains of weary muscles with her personalized care, expert execution, and hands. In the one-hour sinew-soothing session, Dugger exercises her specialty of alleviating headaches and lower-back pain, transforming taught, prickly puffer fish into sea-swimmers made of jelly. Clients may choose to manipulate muscles into good health with a pre-natal, therapeutic, relaxation, or stress-reduction massage, or choose to keep jealous skeletons from jumping ship with an orthopedic massage.
The therapists at Body Kneads Therapeutic Massage draw on five different modalities as they soothe tension and ease injuries. While traditional Swedish massage unravels tension with gliding kneads, deep-tissue massage targets specific regions of pain. Hot-stone therapy employs warm, smooth stones?and sometimes cold stones?to loosen knots and release endorphins. Sports massage helps active muscles prepare for and unwind from exertion. In addition to nurturing pinched shoulders back to health, rotator-cuff therapy makes it possible for clients to move arms more easily without injury.
