Therapeutic Essentials began in March 2017 with a desire to help others maintain a healthy lifestyle by improving functionality of the human body, positively influencing the cardiovascular, respiratory, and lymphatic systems, and enhancing the mind’s natural “feel good state” for an overall improved quality of life.
Every massage is tailored to fit the needs of each person in our care, using a blend of various techniques and modalities including Precision Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofasical Release, Trigger Point and Cupping Therapy along with the flow of Swedish Massage. Keeping the appropriate pressure in mind, from light to deep, our focus is to help restore balance to the body. All massages, if appropriate, are enhanced with Magnesium for a boost in muscle recovery and comes complimentary with Aromatherapy.
