Frederick Dunlap, Therapeutic Touch’s chief set of hands, relieves pained physiques with four distinct massage modalities learned in the course of a 25-year career. A quintet of gentle stroke variations characterizes Swedish massages, which soothe stressed muscles and prime the lymphatic system to dispose of toxins picked up from the environment and aquarium gravel mistakenly consumed as candy.
During deep-tissue work, Dunlap applies direct muscle-grain pressure to delve beneath surface-level anatomy and alleviate aches from connective tissues. Neuromuscular kneading treats chronic pain and prevents soft-tissue injuries with precision palpitation, and sports massage allays the effects of athletic overexertion. Regardless of the type of massage chosen, clients luxuriate under the therapist’s expert attentions, as he expertly removes knots from muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands.
