Swedish massage employs light-to-medium pressure to induce relaxation, and myofascial release uses sustained pressure to loosen connective tissues, ease pain, and restore motion. Deep-tissue techniques use focused pressure to alleviate chronic tension, while fast-paced sport massage is geared toward athletes, helping to warm up the muscles and stimulate blood flow. Prenatal massage eases aches and back pain unique to expectant mothers. For the three-massage option, massages must be scheduled by the same person at two-week intervals.
Dryad Bodywork and Massage
Certified therapists Hernan Goldstein and Siannan Gall named their joint practice Dryad after the mythological spirits of oak trees, which are also symbols of healing and longevity in many cultures. Hernan graduated from the National Holistic Institute, where he studied Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and shiatsu massage. He also pursued advanced training in pregnancy and prenatal bodywork and myofascial therapy. Before joining forces with Siannan, he worked in spas and with chiropractors and cared for his own clients. In keeping with his American Massage Therapy Association membership, Hernan aims to foster both physical healing and self-awareness.
Raised by a family of dancers, massage therapists, and medical professionals, Siannan was primed early on for a healing career path. She graduated from the Institute of Conscious BodyWork, where she studied deep-tissue, sports, and prenatal massage and myofascial release. Despite being finished with school, she continues to study the human body through anatomy and physiology courses while adding new massage techniques to her repertoire. Siannan also never relinquished her love of dancing, which she fuels by performing, competing, and doing jigs on street corners whenever someone says the word "pancake."
