Chris, Massage Therapist

Book a massage with me and let me introduce you my unique style known as Compassionate Deep Tissue and Triggerpoint Therapy. I focus on addressing soft tissue injury and triggerpoints in a slow ethodic fashion that proves to be less painful than traditional deep tissue and triggerpoint work. By approaching treatment in this manner, clients gain healthier soft tissues and relief from the mental and emotional stress of being in pain. Compassionate Deep Tissue and Triggerpoint Therapy is designed to be therapeutic on all levels.
