"I love the smiles I receive when I arrive, as well as the glass of water. I really appreciate the attention to detail in my visit, and I have experienced a very professional and personal response from them when something unexpected has happened on their end that results in me having to change my appointment in some way. Management and therapists alike have provided a keen attention to my care that is rare to find these days and I am very grateful. Bottom line is, I feel better when I leave as I have found therapists that listen to my needs and know how to take care of them. I have continued my membership for quite some time and I don't intend to cancel it any time soon."
Carissa Specializes in Level 2
Carissa has been practicing massage since 2014. She focuses on relaxation and Swedish massage techniques, while adding in fascial and structural work to help address specific problem areas. Carissa relaxes superficial tissue before working into deeper layers, resulting in a thorough yet calming session.
"My ideal client is someone who is willing to be patient as we work an area of concern, and what could be affecting it, thoroughly before moving on. I don't believe in digging right in with an elbow, but rather relaxing you and your muscles, working deeper as they allow to promote maximum progress, minimal pain, and lasting results."
