and surrounding areas
Tom & Cheryl Williams are a married couple whom are both graduates of Birmingham School of Massage and Licensed Massage Therapist. Tom is a retired Deputy Sheriff and Cheryl spent around 20 years working with the elderly in different roles such as a CNA, Activities Director and Licensed Administrator.
Tom & Cheryl’s Mission is to provide a therapeutic massage tailored to meet the needs & expectations of their clients in a relaxing, safe environment.
Tom is certified in Therapeutic Massage and in Neuromuscular Therapy. He also holds a level 3 certification in Synergetic Myofascial Therapy under Magnus Ecklund. This is a deep tissue form of myofascial release which is very effective in loosening fascial restrictions. It is performed with little or no lotion and on top of the sheets.
The client wears shorts, sports bra, tube top, etc. It is not a relaxation massage but is very effective as it involves different positions (sidelying), active involvement by the client, and stretching. It is similar to structural integration and is more effective in returning the body to its natural balanced state than regular massage. Tom also is proficient in sports massage, stretching. The particular type of stretching he does is called Active Isolated Stretching. It was developed by Aaron Mattes who is known as the guru of stretching and is the most effective type of stretching program. Clients wear gym clothing to receive this. Athletes and people who love to work out benefit greatly from both Synergetic Myofascial Therapy and Active Isolated Stretching.
