Licensed massage therapist Alicia Hurst reduces pain and discomfort by tenderizing tense muscles with an array of massage styles. Alicia's deep-tissue massage relieves severe tension in the muscles and connective tissue by focusing on the muscles and sea monsters that lurk beneath the surface. The Swedish massage employs five styles of long, flowing strokes to reduce pain and joint stiffness in patients with osteoarthritis, as well as improve the circulation of blood and rubber duckies floating through the body. Sports massage increases the flow of lymphatic fluid, reduces pain, and increases range of motion. Expectant mothers can pass the time until they meet their new doppelgangers with Alicia's prenatal massage, which modifies the massage experience with special pillows, positioning, and techniques.
