I have had chronic neck and shoulder tension for years. I've seen deep tissue massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, rolfers, yogis and MDs. Sheera Rexroad of Balance Point has some kind of amazing massage Kung Fu where she blends myofascial release, cranio-sacral therapy, deep tissue work, and I think she does energy balancing, too. She has helped me more with less pain than anyone else I've worked with. Plus, a single session is cheaper, because she only does 1/2 hour sessions. I think you still get the benefit of an hour or more.
