Deep Tissue Massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Deep tissue massage is ideal for chronic aches and pains, contracted areas in the neck and upper back, leg muscle tightness, and aching shoulders.

The pressure for deep tissue massage is deeper than that of traditional massage therapy and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

Patient Testimonials

“I loved the individualized attention. The exercises are performed under close supervision with the rehab techs. I knew I was performing all the exercises correctly thanks to the one on one approach. They were patient with me in explaining the proper form and worked at my pace. The entire staff is very efficient. The wait time is short and prompt. It was very easy to set up appointments. The atmosphere is welcoming and the space is tidy.”

I think Dr. Graham and Michelle are both amazing practitioners and very accessible. I can reach them via email or even a phone call and they will get back to me as soon as they can. Both of them are very invested in me as a person as well as my success with treatment. Where other doctors would give up on me for not showing progress, they keep trying. They will not quit until I get better.
