Massage therapists relieve people of the burden of massaging their own backs, a practice that often leads to distended elbows and slip 'n' slides full of massage oil.

Muscular Therapy Clinic owner and American Massage Therapy Association member Mark Reed specializes in relieving chronic pain with neuromuscular massage, which manipulates very deep tissue in order to lasso discomfort and wrangle it out of the body. He also administers Swedish massage, which, like body painting, is designed to banish stress using long strokes. The hot-stone massage applies heat to help unblock the energy meridians described in traditional Chinese medicine; athletes stretch their muscles during the sports massage. In addition to neuromuscular massage, Reed specializes in myofascial release and deep tissue massage, helping muscles unclench from around loved ones and favorite accessories.
