It’s appropriate that licensed massage therapist Shelly Fox decorates her office with elements that evoke the ocean. After all, her smooth, methodical strokes are reminiscent of waves lapping against the shore, and her deep-tissue techniques are designed to break up the sturdiest of sailor's knots. Among her specialty modalities, Shelly’s relaxation massage enhances circulation and stimulates the release of endorphins. Her therapeutic sessions target especially troublesome muscles, employing firmer pressures to alleviate aches. Aside from these more-traditional techniques, Shelly’s foot reflexology and cranial-sacral therapy rely on gentle pressure to relieve stress and stimulate the fluid surrounding the head and spinal cord.
