rSpace is proud to welcome Katie Merrill, LMT to the rTribe Family. A graduate of the
University of Notre Dame and the New York Institute of Massage, Katie provides a
multi-faceted approach to massage therapy, steeped in the Swedish tradition,
infused with some innovative techniques (Therapeutic Cupping, Hot Stones, etc),
and always catered to the needs of each individual. Her previous experience as an
educator offers her a unique perspective—a well-trained ear for clients’ concerns,
and an eagerness to guide them along the path to lasting health.
THE STRAIGHT SIXTY/NEEDY NINETY:
An hour or hour and a half session of classic soft tissue manipulation, designed to relieve stress, alleviate pain, increase circulation, release muscular tension, improve mobility, and encourage more restful sleep. Addressed to the full body, but mindful that those trouble spots will need some extra attention.
THE SPOT CLEAN:
An abbreviated session (30 mins), treating the head, neck, and shoulders or an area of particular concern.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE:
Firmer pressure and more vigorous techniques, focused not the connective tissues, and employed to treat areas of chronic pain and dysfunction.
Soft silicone cups used to apply gentle suction, and worked over the skin. An alternative therapy, not ideal for every client, but proven to increase circulation, prevent inflammation, and draw toxins from the body.
Heated Basalt Stones positioned over large muscles (to diffuse warmth) and gently worked over the skin, to relax and loosen its underlying tissues.
(full hour, full body hot stone massage $75)
