Licensed massage therapist Marci Graham prides herself on giving clients exactly the kind of massage they need. Whether her mission is to assuage chronic pain or simply aid in relaxation, Graham begins each session the same way—with an in-depth consultation about her client’s health history, treatment goals, and ability to lick his or her elbows. Once she has determined which of her six modalities will work best, Graham can further customize the session with options such as hot stones or Thai bodywork. As if this weren’t enough, she augments each session with tips and techniques gleaned from the ongoing-education courses she frequently attends.
