REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Registered Massage Therapist
Scarlet’s technique is slow, rhythmic, and gradual as she thoroughly treats areas of soft tissue dysfunction. She works by the principle that calming the nervous system invites muscles to soften and treatment to be most effective. Therefore, though she uses deep tissue, active release, PNF stretching, and trigger point release techniques when appropriate, the overall experience is deeply relaxing.
