Patrons at Elements Therapeutic Massage pair up with the therapist best qualified to address specific personal issues and concerns. Therapists then spend time with clients, gathering information about their conditions before customizing massages. During the massage, the therapists intuitively blend a variety of modalities, such as deep tissue, Swedish, and trigger-point therapy.
Throughout the process, the therapist keeps communication going. The team uses a system by which clients can communicate the desired level of pressure; level 1 corresponds to long, light strokes over superficial muscles, and level 4 uses some force to root out embedded knots. Through this system, the therapist can get at all depths of tension while remaining well within the client’s comfort zone.
