Just the Right Touch’s licensed massage therapist, Darryl Griffith, quashes aches and pains with a variety of massage and wellness services. During Swedish massage sessions, gentle hands dilute stress and tension with gliding strokes, kneading motions, and untranslatable gestures before using deep-reaching circular movements to increase blood flow and bust up scar tissue. For moms-to-be, Griffith breaks out specially designed massage pillows and employs relaxing techniques to reduce arm and leg swelling, relieve joint pain, and ease antepartum aches. Alternatively, 60-minute orthopedic/sports-injury rehab massage targets chronic pain caused by athletic injuries with a variety of approaches that promote flexibility and prevent future injuries from ever making entrances in the present.
Just The Right Touch
A 13-year military veteran who then became a police officer and, after that, retail and corporate security, Darryl Griffith should be entitled to a lifetime of massages. But instead of lying on the table and reaping his reward, he took up the craft and began treating others. For the last fifteen years, Just the Right Touch's master massage therapist has been doling out Swedish, deep-tissue, and oncology massages with the same commitment to serving others that he upheld in his previous careers. Darryl's mission is to help improve the quality of his clients' lives by administering massages accompanied by Aromaplex oils, which guide his trained hands as he soothes tense muscles and helps bring relief to those suffering from sickness or injury. As a massage educator, he also teaches the craft to aspiring bodyworkers, and further fosters healthy living by offering wellness consultations.
