Thomas Divis is a graduate of Bellevue Massage School. Thomas’ style blends flowing petrissage with deep pressure and joint movements in order to provide a relaxing, satisfying and therapeutic massage. Thomas believes massage can be a keystone to stimulate healing and to optimize health. Beyond the direct effect to the musculoskeletal system, therapeutic massage helps balance our autonomic nervous system. This balancing brings a cascade of beneficial effects upon other systems: circulatory, digestive, lymphatic, endocrine. Massage can free range of motion and alleviate discomfort as well, allowing other paths to healing such as stretch and strengthening to also feel comfortable, holistic and restorative.
