Customizing a massage requires blending various modalities. When certified massage therapist Amaris Amezquita incorporates another modality into the mix, the shift occurs so seamlessly, many clients never notice the change. As her hands deliver long, rolling Swedish strokes, they may chance upon knotted muscles and petrified tendons, which require the firm cross-grained strokes of deep-tissue techniques. Rather than breaking the spell by starting over or pausing for an intermission, Amaris smoothly transitions to the new modality. Amaris makes massages easy not only with smooth delivery and transitions. She also saves clients the trouble of commuting by traveling to their homes.
