Debbie Pierce, has been a licensed massage therapist since 2017 and is a graduate of the highly regarded Alexandar School of Natural Therapeutics in Tacoma, Washington. The health and wellbeing of Debbie’s clients are her first priority. Her goal is to create a sacred healing space for her clients to let go and unwind from the stresses of everyday life.
Currently Debbie practices a combination of techniques including Swedish massage, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy.
After carefully listening to clients’ needs and requests, she intuitively listens to the body and chooses techniques throughout the massage that would most benefit the client needs.
Most clients ask for a combination of relaxation massage while also focusing on certain areas for pain relief and deeper work.
What makes Larson Medical Aesthetics different from other facilities is we treat out patients like family. We strive to have a family-oriented clinic, with positivity and relaxation. When our patients leave our clinic the will leave relaxed and with the feeling of trust referring their family and friends to experience the healing Debbie’s massages can give.
Swedish Massage includes long gliding strokes that help promote relaxation and circulation. It
also warms and relaxes superficial tissue so we can go deeper into underlying soft tissue.
Swedish massage has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and muscle tension, ease
symptoms of depression, lower cortisol levels (stress hormone), and so much more!!
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on re-aligning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort. The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
While during a massage Debbie likes to use soothing relaxing music. in the beginning of her
massages Debbie likes incorporate the use hot towels or a heating pack which helps warm
and loosen up any tight muscles to prepare. Depending on the patient she will use Scared
Earth massage lotion mixed with certain essential oils for her patients. with a combination of
these things the patient will have the ultimate massage experience here at Larson Medical
