Massage Therapy

Robert Kochka, NC Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist

I’ve been practicing massage therapy since I graduated from the Florida School of Massage Therapy in Gainesville, Florida in 2004, and I love it! I enjoy using massage therapy to treat people with complicated chronic muscular issues, postural imbalances, injury recovery, sudden pain, stress, depression, pregnancy discomforts, and can adapt all sessions to most complaints. I use a range of techniques including Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Connective Tissue Therapy, Deep tissue, Swedish, Sports Massage, Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy and Polarity Therapy, tailored to fit your needs. Let me know how I can help you!

Edward Cortright, NC Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist

Edward pursued a massage bodywork license in order to begin practicing Integrated Manual Therapy (IMT), a holistic approach to addressing physical pain and restrictions. Edward was introduced to IMT when he began to get migraines in the late 1990’s. This subtle therapy helped stop the recurrence of his migraines and initiated his fascination about how this therapy worked. Today he offers IMT and traditional massage therapy to his clients depending on the client’s preferences. Massage offers a deep connection to the muscles, improved circulation, and relief from muscular aches and pain. IMT offers a subtle hands-on approach to persistent and chronic dysfunctions.
