One hour massage

69


69 simbi per hour

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.

Deep Tissue Massage - When a relaxation massage is just not enough to release your tight, tired muscles, a Deep Tissue massages may be booked either as a whole body massage with deeper pressure, or a focused massage on specific areas that needs the most attention.

Clinical \ Pain Relief - focuses on improving posture and relieving chronic or acute pain using a variety of advanced soft tissue manipulation techniques including trigger point therapy and myofascial release.

Training & Qualifications


Stephen Shortnacy has been a licensed massage therapist since 2007 and he has specialized in pain relief modalities to give his clients life changing results.

Stephen was great. He worked muscles I didn't even know I had, then took time to explain what he did. He communicated everything extremely well before..., during, and after the massage. I will definitely be back. show more

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 more
