The human body has been compared to many things—a machine, a temple, a work of art—but to licensed massage therapist Amanda Heintskill, it will forever be like an onion. The owner of Phoenix Rising Massage Therapy LLC likens her massage technique, which she refers to on her website as “the onion approach,” to peeling an onion. She begins with a very light touch and then gradually increases her pressure, working on or “peeling away" one layer of tension at a time. In this way, she gradually releases tension without causing her clients unnecessary discomfort that then has to be counteracted with comic relief from the funny bone. First off this is the feedback I got from this merchant "I have to commend the editorial team - please pass on my sincere thanks for putting in about the "onion approach" philosophy! That is the big thing that I try and explain to individuals - so they don't come in and expect deep tissue work right away :) So - please pass on my thanks!"
