Bodywork session in Tucson

30


30 per hour

I've been doing bodywork since i was a kid. And have been lucky enough to trade with and learn from multiple housemates who were well known certified massage teachers in different parts of the country.

Touch helps us rest and activates your parasympathetic nervous system. It helps us de-stress, produces oxytocin and shifts our neurotransmitter cascades in a healthy relaxing direction. This improves cognition later in the day, reduces tension & anxiety, generates feelings of well being. It may help relieve anxiety or headaches. It's also just plain fun & enjoyable.

I'm happy to focus on particular areas if you have been feeling particularly tight somewhere. Deeper work may help break up the fascia that hold your muscles in tense positions maladaptively.

Take some time for yourself and get away from your hectic life. It's a little mini vacation for free.

I like to have a quick phone call prior to the session to get to know each other

I met with Marty for a massage, and was instantly reassured from nervousness when I arrived. When Marty answered the door, he wanted to have a good am...ount of “getting to know you” talk, go over what is ailing me, and he is very knowledgeable about several possible homeopathic solutions to a variety of ailments. When it came time for the massage, everything was alright. It felt a little rushed, but who can complain about a Simbi-powered massage? I would love to see additional options from Marty like 30 mins head and shoulders or 30 mins feet or lower back... just a thought ;) Overall, I was pleased with the experience, and there was nothing weird or uncomfortable. I would go back to see Marty again. Thank you for offering massage of Simbi Marty!!show more

I am the worst. Marty was there ready. He sent me materials and was communicative from the first message when I proposed a deal. I lost track of time ...at work and missed our appointment. I hope he will give me another chance and I’m completing this deal because he did it was my fault that I didn’t show up. Sorry about that! show more
