Though many massage therapists brag about the way they blend techniques to build a perfect personalized treatment, Johnathon Anderson has the credentials to back it up. The nationally certified therapist holds certificates in 18 different massage modalities, which he weaves together following physical and verbal cues from his customers. As clients unwind on the massage table, Johnathon edits their the frenzy in their minds into a slow highlight reel of serene images with classic Swedish massage, diminishes chronic pain with deep-tissue work, and uses prenatal massage to help expectant mothers overcome added joint pressure and tension brought on by complicated crib-assembly instructions.
Ryan McDonald's background in personal fitness informs much of his massage-therapy practice, which specializes in sports- and repetitive-motion-related complaints. Trained in several massage disciplines, including integrated structural therapy, Ryan applies a wide variety of techniques to address the causes, not just the symptoms, of his clients' discomfort. After a thorough evaluation, he may incorporate methods such as strain/counter-strain or myofascial release into his sessions, which take place within the soothing confines of Anew Massage and Wellness.
