Why Brain and Body Recess?


Our services are transformational up-to-the-minute real-time personalized wellness experiences; not cookie-cutter massage sessions. 


Unmatched Total body care

We use herbal infusions and teas to warm or cool the body depending on your body temperature. 


When under stress, the abdominal and diaphragmatic muscles tighten increasing gastric pain and can be the root cause of low back pain. We help relieve these common issues with an abdominal massage with every massage session that we do.


Each massage session also addresses the hands and feet through either healing salts, herbs, muds, or massage depending on the specific individual’s needs and preferences.

Very skilled in muscle stripping.
by Alexa on Dec 30
I will start this review with sharing that I was in a motorcycle accident 3 years ago, where I was ran over by a car. I have had muscle tightness in my back so bad, that I faint, get headaches, and lose strength in my hands. I have tried everything: pain medicine, physical therapy, creams, decompression machines....everything. And the pain always came back. Her muscle stripping protocol has been the only thing that has worked for me. I am finally starting to feel like a normal person in their 20's should. So happy I found you and this program

Parnisia is gifted with the ability to understand and work with the root causes of deeper imbalances in the body. I've never experienced Limbic Hacking before I met her, but I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to address – and heal – from a chronic illness or out-of-balance energetic pattern. She is extremely skilled and knowledgeable!

Parnisia is very personable and professional. I felt amazing after my appointment and look forward to seeing her again.

Parnisia is excellent. The treatment is rather painful to get deep into the muscle tissue but she is always so kind and knows exactly when you have reached your limit.

I absolutely loved my first experience with shoulder Muscle Stripping by Parnisia. I have had issues with my shoulders almost two years now, and could not fix it myself through stretching/ mobility/ exercise. So i started seeing Dr. Thomas at The Joint Chiropractic, and he recommended me to his wife. I am now two sessions down and have more to go, it’s so worth it, even if it can be painful. I’ve tried other massages for the pain and it could never get to the problem like her muscle stripping technique. This is what is going to fix my shoulders. No doubt

Parnisia is very knowledgeable, and explained the process clearly to me. It is very deep body work, which can be painful during sessions. But after three sessions I'm already seeing significantly increased range of motion and pain reduction. If you want to see real change and improvement, I recommend you give Muscle Stripping and Parnisia Thomas a try.

Absolutely do not enjoy enduring one of these sessions, but the resulting BENEFITS with pain reduction, flexibility improvement, general mentoring make them more than worthwhile. Parnisia's upbeat attitude, wit & professional knowledge & skills goes a long way with me continuing the sessions.

Business response:

Thank you. It really is no pain, no gain when it comes to Muscle Stripping. You know it's the extraordinary gains achieved with muscle stripping that keep athletes like you coming back for more. Our clients have a love-hate relationship with Muscle Stripping.
