The bodywork experts at Melt and Relax Massage know that a good kneading session sometimes requires more than the use of their hands. So they tackle knots and tension with their forearms, elbows, and even feet, if needed. This strategically applied pressure reduces stress in the muscles and improves circulation throughout the body, flushing toxins from their hiding spots and helping injuries heal more quickly than would be possible through the application of multiple layers of band-aids. Some of the modalities practiced here include traditional Swedish and deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, hot-stone therapy, and full-body stretching.
