Richard Fesler Licensed Massage Therapist

I offer a wide range of massage modalities combined with my own unique, and personal style designed to restore body symmetry. Your session will always be customized for your individual needs and recommendations may be given to include stretches, posture tips, lifestyle modifications or follow-up care with other modalities or practitioners.

Injury Rehabilitation & Medical Massage
This treatment-oriented work focuses on specific areas to help you recover from pain or an injury. I combine neuromuscular, myofascial, trigger point therapy, and acupressure, as well as passive and active techniques to reduce your symptoms, and restore symmetry to the body. A session may also include information on specific stretches, exercises and helpful advice to prevent future injuries.

Therapeutic Massage (Deep Tissue)
This massage style can be a full-body session or can focus on specific areas like the back, neck, hips or legs. This work is designed to release your deeper muscle layers and provide relief from acute or chronic pain patterns while assessing the cause of your discomfort. As a result, muscle tension and toxins are released allowing blood and oxygen to circulate properly. I will help you understand your body to assist in realigning your posture, while creating a maintenance program to unwind your patterns of restriction and restore body symmetry.

Relaxation Massage
Need Stress Relief? From a focused upper-body massage to a full-body massage, these sessions offer blissful, nurturing experiences which relax, rejuvenate, and help you leave your stress behind. I combine Swedish and myofascial techniques with a lighter touch designed to relax and sooth both mind and body leaving you feeling “grounded” with a full-body connection.

Sports/Athletic Massage
Sports massage helps improve athletic performance & recovery time and prevents injuries. This style of work combines neuromuscular, myofascial, Swedish, and Russian techniques and is an effective component of any training program. These treatments are specific to your individual needs and beneficial for your on-going maintenance, before or after an event/race.
