Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue is a modality of massage that works applying more pressure and reaching deep layers of muscles. Many clients ask for Deep Tissue, but they don't support too much pressure and others ask for more and more pressure, because they have the wrong and oldest concept : " No pain, no gain". Deep Tissue is used for chroniques pain, tightness and helps break up scar tissues. I would like clarify that Deep Tissue is much more than forearms and elbows pushing hard. There are much more techniques to be used, inclusive Myofascial Release (see my description) that can reach deep layers. I worked for 5 years doind Deep Tissue massages and with my Continuing Education and my practic I created my Deep Tissue style. If you expect that I push hard like I will break your bones, don't book a Deep Tissue massage with me.

Neuromuscular

Neuromuscular Therapy or Trigger Point Therapy is a effective and specific technique that alleviates severe pain and chronic muscular pain. It is a combination of soft tissue treatment with stretches and trigger points treatment to eliminate pain. Trigger Points cause ischemia (less blood supply on the area) and pain sometimes where the Trigger Point is located and sometimes refer pain.Also they can cause numbness, tingling, stiffness. People who have a computer job or a profession that overuse muscles as a hairstylist, a baseball player and don't do stretches regularly suffer pain and have Trigger Points on neck and shoulders areas, but TP can found on all body. I have a ample experience working with Trigger Point, see my education also.

Swedish

Swedish Massage is the most relaxation modalitie, using a light to medium pressure and long and nerve strokes. It improves circulation, immune system and activate the parasympathetic nervous system. Simgle sessions are very effective, but I like use Swedish Massage techniques mixed with others modalities.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a technique that applies gentle sustained pressure on the connective tissue called fascia. This tissue, fascia, envolves muscles, organs, ligaments and is a viscuous tissue. We have this tissue covering our body from head to toes and traumas, surgeries and inflamatory responses produces tensile pressure decreasing flexibility and ROM. This technique is applied directly to skin without lotion or oil and I like use it before a Deep Tissue Massage or when I can't pull the skin. After the session the client feel like " untied" and can experiment a difference and his posture and ROM.

Great technique applied to get to the root of and alleviate any discomfort.

Alice is very professional and conscientious. Every time I go to her I always feel so much better afterwards. She is really good at her job and making you feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable in her craft. The ambiance is always calming and inviting and her demeanor is caring and pleasant. She always prefaces the massage with questions to determine where you think you need the most work/help but then always knows about other spots that need work that you may not have realized. I am so glad I found her.

Alice provides the best massage!!
by Aillen on Dec 13
Alice is a highly skilled and talented therapist with a heart of gold. I’ve had three sessions so far and always leave feeling more relaxed and wanting more. I have many painful areas/trigger points/ adhesions throughout my body and she is designing a treatment plan to reduce my pain and stress, trying different modalities and techniques. The best part is that I feel very comfortable with her and know she wants to help me. I’ve had many different treatments along my journey with chronic pain and am happy to have found her. She is intelligent, compassionate and full of positive energy.
