Licensed massage therapist Dave Gucker works closely with clients to understand muscular ailments from a soft-tissue point of view that ensures fully customized treatments. Gucker can break down scar tissue with therapeutic kneading techniques used in injury massage, or use long, flowing arm strokes to improve range of motion in torsos, limbs, and malfunctioning boat propellers. Both the deep-tissue massage and sports massage hone in on connective tissues—or fascia—to relieve stress in underlying muscles, but sports rubdowns focus on relieving athletically-derived aches. Though Gucker gently coaxes away soft tissue woes, he also pursues more aggressive endeavors like breaking bricks and enforcing pajama dress code as a fifth degree black belt and head instructor at Murray’s Martial Arts Centers.
