Adam Fisher

massage-adamAdam is a graduate of The Cleveland Institute of Medical Massage and received his license to practice massage in July of 2011. Achieving his Ohio license was a rigorous program that included anatomy, physiology, ethics, business law, CPR certification, and many hours of supervised, hands-on, clinical practice. He plans on continuing his massage therapy education and expanding his profession into other massage modalities, including myofascial release (a form of soft tissue therapy), craniosacral, neuromuscular, and trigger point therapy.

Adam says, “Although my techniques are firmly grounded in my clinical education, my intuitive abilities for finding trigger points have been praised by many practitioners.” He is skilled in adapting levels of pressure during a massage and can seamlessly adjust from very deep tissue work to gentle, calming techniques. He firmly believes that massage therapy has a unique ability and power for healing and has a very significant calming effect that is centering for both the client and the therapist.

 

Jessica Reddick

Since then she has received a second certification in Thai massage and is a Reiki practitioner. Prior to that her education and employment were in the human services field. Jessica also has a strong interest in traditional medicine.

Thai Massage is a style of bodywork that involves acupressure, joint mobilization, and yoga-like stretches which helps to improve range of motion, as well as circulation. This form of bodywork is typically performed on a mat on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used in Thai massage. It is known in Thailand as “nuat phaen boran”, literally, the ancient-manner massage. Thai massage can help to:

  • Reduce stress and relieve anxiety
  • Improve energy flow throughout the body
  • Increase blood circulation
  • General relaxation
  • Increase flexibility in your muscles
  • Increase mobility
  • Improve posture and balance
  • Ease arthritis and back pain
