Hi, my name is Celise Saxton and I have been doing massage for 6 years now. I went to Myotherapy School of Massage, in Salt Lake City, where I gained a great love for massage. I truly believe that the body can heal itself if given the proper tools. I believe massage is one of those tools. Massage helps our bodies run more efficiently by helping relax tired, sore muscles so that we can be pain free and get us back to doing what we love to do. My technique is very therapeutic. I incorporate Swedish, lymph drainage, and even some energy work to help you get back to doing what you love to do.

Swedish massage is now known as "traditional" massage. Swedish massage includes long flowing strokes, gentle kneading, and friction. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and wellbeing.
The main purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity. Sports massage incorporates unique stretching and pressure. Where minor injuries occur due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. The massage will help prepare the athlete for peak performance, drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and prevent injuries. Sports massage can help prevent those nagging injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether a person is an athlete or a once a week jogger.
Deep Tissue Massage is designed to reach the deep portions of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibers. Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, its purpose is to un-stick the fibers of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.
