Bay Area Restorative Massage Therapy
The healing hands of Bay Area Restorative Massage Therapy facilitate a wellness philosophy that strives to maintain optimal health through customized pain relief sessions. Combining Eastern and Western techniques, various massage modalities aid clients in padding flexibility, circulation, and tranquility levels according to their needs and Myers-Briggs typology.
Applied with light to medium pressure, Swedish massage stimulates nerve endings and boosts circulation with broad strokes in a gentle session that's well-suited to first-time massage recipients. Aching kernels of connective tissue unravel under an hour of intensive pressure during deep-tissue massage honed by turning terra-cotta statues into malleable mounds of play-doh. A gentle dry brushing begins the hot-stone massage's muscle and vertebrae therapy before warm oil and polished rocks plucked from the sun's cobblestone streets radiate healing heat waves into their blissful target.
