During deep-tissue massages, they use a tracing method that stalks pain to its source and triggers relief by pushing into lower-level musculature.

Shiatsu and relaxation massages each tackle stress and fatigue with long, soothing strokes, and myofascial therapy and acupressure pinpoint problem areas to realign troublesome tissues and balance energy pathways.
