A different massage therapist runs the show at each of Keep in Touch Massage’s four locations, tending to clients with personalization and more than 15 modalities. Alongside common techniques such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, more advanced approaches serve more specialized goals. Lymphatic drainage, for instance, uses rhythmic movements to help boost the immune system and remove excess fluid from the muscles, whereas cross-fiber friction employs deep, sloping strokes along the grain of the muscle to relieve tension and push out toxins. Throughout each session, cushioned and sometimes heated tables cradle guests as therapists work and periodically pause to explain the techniques they’re using. Each modality may bring its own benefits with it, from cleansing the body of impurities to rubbing off permanent-marker graffiti.
