Santa Cruz Spine and Sport Chiropractic welcome on board our newest Certified Massage Therapist, Marshall Payne. He practices a variety of modalities ranging from Deep Tissue/Clinical, Therapeutic Swedish, Prenatal/Postpartum, to Hot Stone Therapy and more. His specialty modality is Thai Massage. Within a Thai massage session, the client is guided through a series of assisted stretches and rotation of joints, while using rhythmic broad and pointed compression. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body session that relieves tension in deep muscles, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically. Thai massage is performed on a Thai mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing for ease of movement and flexibility.
