Outstanding Hal is an outstanding masseuse. He is highly skilled and knowledgeable about physiology, and gives a great therapeutic massage. I went for chronic back pain and Hal accommodated me the same day. That made a huge difference, as I felt so much better afterwards. Hal goes beyond simply providing a massage. He takes time to explain what and why he is working on certain areas of your body, and gave me stretch exercises to do at home. Thanks Hal, I feel so much better!

Lowell B.

Massage and stretch Hal is outstanding! He got my problem areas and areas I didn’t know I had issues with. He gives a great therapeutic massage and the next day I felt so much better! He takes the time to explain. Highly recommend Hal.

Stretch My doctor suggested that I get stretched and Hal took care of the concerns. I am very pleased with everything. This is better than so call Physical Therapy centers..

Still not convinced?

AIS also affects superficial and deep fascial layers by realigning collagen fibers and breaking up adhesions and scar tissue.  Since AIS is an active stretching work-out of major muscle groups, it does not require a warm-up phase and can be used to prepare for any exercise.

What can it help?

Well it’s ideal if you’re experiencing back, shoulder, neck, or sciatic pain. We all know how debilitating pain in either of these areas can be. 

So what are your waiting for?

Don’t delay, purchase your session today!

Clients may experience a 30 minute AIS session at no charge with the purchase of a regular price massage if they have not received AIS from HMM/ HST. They may book a 30 minute AIS session as a stand-alone service.
