One hour massage
I will give you a one hour therapeutic relaxation, deep tissue, or pain relief\clinical massage.
Therapeutic Relaxation Massage - This is a light to medium pressure full body massage that relieves stress, melts away tension, and revitalizes good energy.

About Stephen Shortnacy
I'm a professionally licensed massage therapist and wellness instructor in Austin, Texas who specializes in deep tissue, pain relief and postural improvement massages. My clients are those who are st...riving for life changes to minimize and\or rid themselves of life's pains. I started dancing almost 20 years. Originally a social ballroom dancer, I transitioned to tango and then became a dance teacher in 2007. As a student who has transitioned from one dance form to tango, I understands the difficulties and challenges that students of other dances may face when learning tango. Even though tango is my primary dance, I also enjoy dancing salsa, bachata, and several other dances on occasion. I'm looking for a cat whisper/vet tech to pet sit on the rare occasion when I travel. I have an older and active kitty that requires daily medication. She had been abused in the past and will require someone with experience. * Would love to collaborate with creative (photography, videography, dance) individuals as my time permits. * Fitness and wellness trades are welcome as well. * Trade to strengthen my business will be nice as well.show moreOpen to other proposals
