Naoko's massage session is well tailored to fit your needs. You can choose your session to be based on the Swedish/deep-tissue massage or the fully-clothed Eastern modality, Shiatsu. If you have on-going issues of stress, injuries, pain, or tight and achy muscles, regular sessions, once a month or bi-weekly, are recommended. If you have an acute injury, it's best to address sooner before the tissue adhesions set in.
