Are you stressed? If you are not in pain and you store your stress and tension in your body and just want a massage to work on those knots, I can help you with that to. We all are used to stress and not all stress is bad.  However, too much stress can leave us feeling frazzled or overwhelmed.  Therapeutic massage is a perfect stress management tool that can help relieve you of that stress.  Let me work on those knots in your back, shoulders and neck, etc.

Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Myofascial Release

Studied the above massage techniques at the Body Therapy Center in Palo Alto, CA. Over the past 15 years I have refined these techniques in an effort to help my patients searching to gain relief from pain and stress. This range of techniques allows for a range of massage with strong pressure to the most gentle touch. It can be very calming or very energizing. Myofascial techniques for instance, work equally well with both very tender and sore muscles and joints, when a light touch is required, as well as with chronically tight and stiff muscles and joints, were a more firm and directed touch is more effective.

Orthopedic Massage

Trained by Thomas Hendricksen, DC,. Orthopedic Massage was designed to address many common and uncommon orthopedic and sports injuries using side lying massage during the rehabilitation phase. Because side lying massage is still uncommon in the field of massage I have developed a niche using this technique in addressing: sciatica pain, frozen shoulder, migraines, stiff neck with pain, low back and upper back pain, shoulder pain and many other medical issues.

Prenatal Massage

Expecting mothers benefit from massage during the prenatal and postal period. I have successfully worked with expecting moms throughout their full term pregnancy on many occasions. Prenatal Massage is a specialty designed to bring about relaxation and pain relief for expecting moms with an awareness of their specific circumstances. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.

I love our conversation and his continuing to help me relax and let him loosen my muscles. Then when needed it was quite and almost spiritual.

Enrico provided a great treatment and the purpose of his techniques. (I requested this info) I left feeling like my movement/ gait was much freer and I had more energy.

Enrico always takes the time to listen to what your needs are. Very kind, patient, and gives a deep and relaxing massage.

I loved the massage. You were so thorough in talking me through my pain and how I can manage it. And I felt so much better after the massage. The only feedback is that the bathroom was dirty when I used it. But that's something easily fixable. Thanks!

Enrico helps gets the kinks and aches out. He also recommended excersises I could do to help loosen tight spots in between visits. Best therapeutic massage ever.

I have had neck tension and pain for many many years. My work in the hospital is hard on the posture and stress adds more tension. I have tried many massage therapists. You can say that I am a connoisseur of massage. I have NEVER had someone as experienced as Enrico! It was the BEST therapeutic massage I have ever had! He knew exactly the locations of all the knots in the muscles, the perfect amount of pressure to use without me having to direct, and gave me hope as I was nearing despair that I will never find the relief I could only dream of.
