My name is Peedy Raskovsky, a Licensed Massage Therapist and owner of Essence Massage and Bodywork. I have more than 20 years of experience, and over that time have incorporated an array of modalities including Tai Chi, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reiki, Ashiatsu, FasciAshi and Sarga Bodywork into my practice. My approach is a collaboration of a gentle yet powerful massage, addressing deep tissue through finesse instead of force. My method and movements are rooted in the belief that chronic pain and muscle strain deserves individual attention. I encourage open communication and listen carefully to ensure that I have a comprehensive understanding of your needs in order to create a customized experience that supports the advancement of your individual goals.
Hello, I'm Rachel Pierce. My approach to massage is technical and highly intuitive, with the intention of finding the balance between corrective and relaxing bodywork. I do so by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, the body’s state of rest and rejuvenation. Using slow rhythmic strokes and my knowledge of anatomy, trigger points, and the facial network to elevate areas of chronic tension, especially in the neck, shoulders, low back, and hips. I'm able to satisfy pressure needs from light to very deep while still listening to the body’s needs and encouraging the mind-body connection.
