Styles of Massage at Body Focus

I am a firm believer that massage therapy can help almost anyone. Whether you are recovering from a sports injury or you carry stress in your neck from sitting at your desk all day, I believe massage therapy can help. It is important however, to realize that not all forms of massage therapy work for everyone. I work hard to ensure that I offer a range of techniques that can help the widest range of clients. From stiff stubborn muscles to a peaceful and relaxing time out from a busy life, Body Focus is here for you. During your first visit as part of the "Intake Process", I make it a point to understand what style of massage might be best for you and what part of your body needs the most attention. Below you will find a list of many of the styles of massage therapy that I offer at Body Focus Therapeutic Massage and I encourage you to ask questions.

Ashiatsu Massage

A form of back walking massage known as the “Deepest and most luxurious massage on the planet.” A deep compression massage where I use my body weight and administer pressure with my feet while using over head bars for balance. This style typically uses the heel arch and/or whole surface of foot, and offers large compression and tension with less pressure than an elbow. It is ideal for larger muscle groups, such as in thigh, or for long-duration upper back compressions. It’s a broad type of deep tissue massage that you will never forget.
Price: $75 per hour or $105 per 90 minute session

Deep Tissue Massage

These sessions are often quite intense as a result of the deliberate, focused work. A full-body session consists of sustained deep pressure and is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain who are involved in heavy physical activity, or patients who have sustained physical injury.
