During massage sessions, therapists adapt their kneading strokes to their client, applying the intense pressure common to deep-tissue massage to work out muscular knots, and easing tension through relaxing effleurage.

Shea Atkin knew from a very early age that she had a soothing touch. After high school, she followed a common path to college but soon realized that she wanted to develop her gift. So she immersed herself in the art of massage at Core Institute School of Massage Therapy & Structural Bodywork, where her partner in healing, Matthew Hourigan, also developed his talent for allaying pain and stress. The two have each been practicing massage for more than a decade now, and Hourigan’s stints at chiropractic clinics have buttressed his therapeutic techniques. Today, the pair works together, presiding over Somatic Massage's white-shuttered brick home, where a private room sets the stage for relaxation. Using intense pressure akin to deep-tissue massage, coupled with tension-soothing effleurage strokes, they ease the back pain that results from long office days and long tumbles down the stairs while trying to impersonate a slinky.
