THE MASSAGE GREENPOINT DIFFERENCE
We are Pain Relief Specialists. Our sessions are tailored to your needs, and designed to treat areas of tension and discomfort.
- We Pay Attention to the details that matter most to you: There's no extra charge for advanced massage techniques like Deep Tissue or Trigger Point Therapy.
- We Don't Skimp on Time: Licensed Massage Therapists offer full 60 or 90 minute sessions, so you can relax into a full hour of hands-on time.
- There are break times in between sessions, so therapists are energized, focused, and ready to work on you.
- We do a thorough health intake with our clients, working hard to understand and address your needs. Tell us what areas are bothering you, so we can focus on helping you feel better!
- LMT's create and set their own schedules, so they are never working on you when they would rather be doing something else.
- Therapists are warm, friendly and knowledgeable, and always happy to take the time to demonstrate stretches and techniques that you can take home with you, so you’ll get the most out of your session.
"I love this job! I get to be the best part of my clients day, every day!"
