Écarg Therapeutic Bodyworks' certified massage therapist Lorna Ellis-Harding sends search parties after spelunking stressors with her deep-tissue and Swedish massages, designed to reach the recesses of muscular discomfort. During the 60-minute deep-tissue session, Lorna kneads away chronic aches in anatomical trouble spots strewn liberally across necks, backs, and shoulders, helping to unknot cranky kinks with skilled strokes, strikes, and the help of an octane-powered rolling pin. Deep-tissue treatments can release long-lurking toxins responsible for mental and physical exhaustion, parting the pea soup with a moment of clarity that will live beyond visits to Écarg's confines.
The Swedish massage uses a combination of gliding, kneading, and rhythmic strokes to help soothe sore muscles, improve circulation, and decrease stress levels. Aerated individuals can use their newfound clearheadedness and rubberized state of being to achieve higher productivity, contagiously relax loved ones, or finally beat Galaga.
Thanks to the vigorous vetting of bodily interlopers, massage recipients may experience some residual soreness in the days following their therapeutic thrashing, especially after deep-tissue treatments. In order to facilitate the express expulsion of toxins and the opening of cellular swimming pools, Écarg's tension tamers recommend steady swallows of clear, crisp water.

About Ecarg Therapeutic Bodyworks
Though her ability to untie knots rivals that of a sailor, licensed massage therapist Lorna Ellis-Harding has been relieving aches and pains for long enough to understand the limitations of massage. Rather than rely solely on her Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques, she draws from other areas of traditional and alternative medicine to craft treatment plans for the whole body. Her acupressure massages, for example, incorporate the principles of Eastern acupuncture to apply healing pressure to specific points of energy across the body. When she isn’t balancing energy or coaxing out toxins with gentle lymphatic-drainage techniques, Lorna consults with other local businesses to help her clients manage their weight and make healthful lifestyle decisions, such as refraining from eating french fries while juggling chainsaws.
