Licensed massage therapist Marcy Lynne Allen understands clients face a daunting task in carving out free time, so she helps them out by scheduling most of her appointments for the evening and weekend. She tailors each session with differing modalities, drawing largely upon Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. With the long, gliding strokes of Swedish massage, Marcy applies light to medium pressure, relieving tension while also stimulating circulation and lymphatic movement. She then targets areas of chronic pain with deep-tissue work, excavating tension and valuable rubies buried in muscles' deepest layers.
