This Site is managed by Focus Clinical Massage .  Their mission is to support employee health and wellness through massage therapy in the workplace We work with companies to create on-site experiences that help lower stress, reduce injury and increase employee satisfaction. We understand that every company has a unique culture and specific goals for their population -- we work with you to design a program that meets your needs and can be tailored over time. Foundational to our service is the way our staff is trained in the art of on-site treatments. They are professional and reliable, but above all, skilled in delivering, through clothes, effective massage therapy. The goal of each therapist is to rehabilitate and stimulate natural healing processes in connective tissues and organ systems using manual soft tissue massage, joint physics, elongation techniques, and manipulation of joint capsules. Our key skill is the ability to isolate and identify the exact site of soft tissue dysfunction. Draping is used to assure patient modesty. Therapists provide their own table/chair, linens, and sanitizing supplies. We work with you to design a suitable environment for treatments to take place, including privacy, sound/music and lighting. All of our therapists carry malpractice insurance and follow the Hippocratic oath. ​
