The licensed stress soothers at Gratitude Massage Therapy pamper muscles with carefully targeted kneading modalities to ease aches, release tension, and address chronic pain or injuries. Upon request, heating pads at each table can turn on to deepen relaxation and warm bodies until they’re as cozy as a bunny in a silk bathrobe. During Swedish massages, a sheet drapes over the client, covering everything but the area of focus, to which the muscle mender applies oil and then kneads with long, smooth movements that improve circulation and release stress. Alternatively, a deep-tissue or sports massage concentrates on chronic muscle tension or injury with slow strokes and pressure on specific areas. The therapist employs an artillery of fingertips, knuckles, palms, and elbows to work on tense areas, untying knots and fostering healthy ligaments.
