Massage In The Park's licensed massage therapists employ injury- and stress-alleviating techniques to energize physiques in an intimate, two-treatment-room establishment. Enjoy the relaxing strokes of a Swedish massage as tension releases its pinion hold on tendons, and stress melts away like ice cream haphazardly scooped onto a pancake griddle. Insidiously docked pain can be soothed by the firmer touches of a deep-tissue massage, and a sports session is designed to rehab aches and pains obtained from blindfolded archery matches and other high-intensity physical activities. Massage In The Park also offers an array of specific massage techniques including pregnancy (pre- and postnatal), shiatsu, acupressure, and cupping.
When it comes to muscles, licensed massage therapist Chrisdin Dier rarely comes across a knot she can’t untie. Depending on her client’s needs, she may call upon Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage techniques to relieve tension and soothe sore muscle tissue. When her strokes are not enough by themselves, she enhances her sessions with aromatherapy and raindrop therapy, both of which bring non-tactile senses into the mix.
At Alternative Health Services Massage Therapy, massage therapists understand their clients' desires to escape life's daily doldrums and provide a relaxing space of total tranquility.

I Knead a Massage delivers restorative back rubs and relaxing muscle kneadings to New York’s tenderest residents. Go for a classic Swedish massage and enjoy tranquility-augmenting aromatherapy during the session, or come in comfy, stretchy clothes for the Thai option, which gently ushers joints and connective tissue out of their sheltered comfort zones. For clients carrying imminent miniature humans, a pregnancy massage alleviates some of the muscle cramps and tension associated with pregnancy, without bothering kick-happy unborn cops getting a head start on dramatic apartment entrances.
