We could all use a bit less stress in our lives. Regular massage is one way to help facilitate this. Benefits of massage therapy include:
Massage therapy is very often an effective adjunction to other treatments.
Hectic schedules can make it difficult to find time to reconnect with your partner in a relaxing atmosphere. A couples massage can be a wonderful treat for you and your significant other.
With both in studio, in-office and at-home massage options available, Bodytrace makes it easy for you to book some downtime with your partner.
Whether you are a “weekend warrior” or training for a triathlon, athletes can achieve significant health and performance benefits from regular sports massage therapy.
Sports massage therapy is unique in that it targets specific muscle-related injuries while promoting a speedier recovery so that you can return to your normal training routine. It typically utilizes more vigorous forms of massage to facilitate muscle healing and relaxation.

Fascia is connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, separates and surrounds your bones, muscles, organs, nerves and blood vessels. It is everywhere in your body!
Fascial stretch therapy is a slow, hands-on, pain free way to stretch out this connective tissue. It can be used to help treat chronic pain and increase your range of motion. It can help to reduce the risk of injury, improve your posture, and improve your athletic performance.
FST can be used for general upkeep or before a big event: for example, bodybuilders and triathletes often seek FST before they compete!
Tracey is a Level 1 Certified Fascial Stretch Therapist.
