Sole2Soul Bodywork’s skilled massage therapist, Mike Greenfield, uses practiced palms to dispense blissful treatments, carrying away tension with Swedish massages. Draws on his education from the First Institute School of Massage, Mike employs flowing, firm strokes in an attempt to soothe aches, help to improve circulation, and rub away Sharpie tattoos. Groupon customers can upgrade for an extra charge to a 60- or 90-minute deep-tissue massage, which mines out subterranean knots with deep pressure to help relax tense tendons and increase flexibility. Patrons can also lessen the stress of driving without massaging the dashboard thanks to Sole2Soul Bodywork’s ample parking areas.
Sole2Soul Bodywork's licensed massage therapist, Mike Greenfield, knows that it's harder to fix an injured body than it is to develop a healthy one. He learned that while working for more than five years in a health-and-fitness center and through his own certification in personal training. Mike sees his massage work as integral to his clients' overall health and well-being, whether he is helping to prevent injuries with a postgame sports massage or detoxify the body with lymphatic-drainage techniques. In addition to these and several other modalities, Mike also administers doctor-prescribed medical massages, which can help alleviate soft-tissue injuries as an alternative to medication or wearing a suit made entirely of Icy Hot.
