Licensed massage therapist Carl Ocken heals people with his hands. He uses his knowledge of muscles and tendons to target his kneads, soothing strokes, and pressure to help alleviate pain and stress in his clients. Though Ocken specializes in deep-tissue massage, during which he uses firm pressure to unwind knots that can cause chronic pain, he is well versed in a number of modalities that include neck and shoulder massage. Regardless of the massage they receive, clients can kick back and relax in Ocken's professional massage chair. Aside from working out of a doctor's office, the therapist also packs up his practice to help reduce tension in clients' homes, offices, or submarines.
