ADRIAN  BUTUC   Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage & Body work


                     I have  been doing therapeutic massages for over 25 years and I am still surprised of its  benefits. I have found that the power of touch is one of the most  effective healing forces.  I graduated from National Academy of Physical  Education, Romania , 1991. As a student, I learned  about the culture of athletic training from my Eastern European professors  and coaches, whose athletes had dominated the world's sports for decades. They all agreed that human performance comes not only from the physical  training itself, but from physiological and psychological recovery as well. Besides hard work, rest and good nutrition , the body needs certain therapeutic modalities that can bond them all. The  concept brought together  4 main procedures: massage  which is the stimulation of blood flow by  passively rubbing and stroking the skin, joint mobilization which uses passive bone movement to  treat joint dysfunction, electrophysical  agents  to  transfer heat and energy  to the tissue, and therapeutic  exercise , that uses the active movement of the musculoskeletal system to improve its range . 

 

 IRENE MERCIONES   Licensed Massage Therapist 


     Irene came from Mexico  where she worked  as a nurse and she is  specialized in  reflexology, infertility massage and cupping, a form of alternative medicine in which a  local suction is created on the skin, thus drastically mobilizing blood flow, and  promoting tissue healing. Today, a lot of Olympic athletes are using cupping  therapy as a form of recovery .
