Natural Touch Massage
Licensed massage therapist Joanie McCulloch combats chronic pain and dispels tension with five styles of massage and bodywork. Before sessions, Joanie encourages her clients to discuss specific aches, muscle knots, and phobias about clowns they'd like her to soothe. She translates each client's health history into a custom session that might utilize acupressure and Swedish massage, which usher in waves of relaxation through localized pressure and flowing strokes. Most of her techniques boost the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid to help flush toxins, and may result in renewed energy and stress relief.
