Massage Therapy for Surfers

My SPECIALTY is “On the Edge” Deep Tissue Massage. I work on a scale of 1 – 10, where 7 is on the edge and 10 is very excruciating pain. Some discomfort is necessary when receiving deep tissue massage to get results.   A lot of my clients handle the deep tissue pain or even like the deep tissue pain in order to get the quickest results for their body type.
