The massage session generally uses firm but gentle pressure with kneading, compression, scented oils/lotions, and long, gliding strokes.

The massage uses a deeper pressure and will target problem areas, tight muscles, or trigger points. This type of massage is ideal for when the body is feeling tight, sore, and run down.

POSTURAL BALANCING THERAPY
