Services Provided: Apple Valley Massage is a full-service therapeutic massage practice, blending massage techniques with stretching and behavioral modification to ensure the benefits of your massage last as long as possible. I am trained in a wide variety of techniques and customize each session to meet the needs of a client on a particular day.
Almost every day I am asked, “What kind of massage do you do?”
My clients are athletes, moms, dads, military men and women, lawyers, artists, students, regular people who get a massage because they know it is a great way to optimize their health.
I believe in using as much pressure as you need to experience relief, but with few exceptions, I DON’T believe that massage should hurt.
In a world where there is a pill for most every ailment, one can be assured that there is a time-tested, all natural, drug-free alternative that can help you to feel better, relieve stress, ease sore muscles and recharge. As most therapies, massage on a regular basis yields the best results and Apple Valley Massage offers a reasonably priced monthly wellness membership to help you maintain your health and achieve your wellness goals.
