                 Essential Kneads Therapeutic Massage Center, INC. would like to introduce ourselves as adjunct health care professionals who can offer manual therapies that can greatly benefit your healthy lifestyle. We specialize in therapeutic massage with knowledgeable assessment abilities and experienced hands on skills that have dealt with a wide variety of clinical conditions including: headache and migraine, neck, shoulder, and back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, TMJ syndrome, athletic or repetitive motion injuries, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, anxiety and depression, sleep disturbances, frozen shoulder, scar tissue and reduced joint or tissue range of motion.

         We create a personal approach for each client by spending time talking with the individuals about their specific conditions and therapeutic goals. We then adjust our pressure and intention according to their comfort level and specific need for each session.  The time that you schedule is the amount of hands on time given!
