Subtle But Deep








Robert Byrnes has been a bodyworker for over 25 years. He integrates several modalities to provide a unique treatment that is customized to each client’s needs. He mindfully and purposefully employs techniques that are specific to the individual’s condition. His strength allows him to work deeply, yet his sensitivity allows him to work subtlety. Clients experience relief because he works on problem areas until there is resolution.

Robert has a deep understanding of anatomy, and the relationship between structure and function. However, the most important aspect of his work is the quality of his touch. He is able to work with strength and power in a relaxed and flowing manner because of his knowledge of the body and his ability to engage it mindfully. This allows the client to experience a deeper level of connection, relaxation, and transformation.

Robert has trained in Deep Tissue Sports massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, Myopractics, Traditional Thai massage, Ashiatsu Oriental Deepfeet Bar Therapy, Chinese Cupping, CranioSacral Therapy, Pregnancy massage, Reiki, Reflexology, and Esalen relaxation massage. Robert has also studied Oriental Medicine and acupuncture.

Ashiatsu Oriental Deepfeet Bar Therapy

since 2012
With this innovative method, I work on you using my feet instead of the Western method of hands, forearm, and elbow. Ashiatsu Oriental Deepfeet Bar Therapy is incredibly effective with profound results. I encourage everyone to experience this type of deep tissue massage. You will be completely amazed at how effective it is. And you won’t even be able to tell that you’re being worked on with my feet!

Chinese Cupping

since 2006
See Video Demonstration
Cupping is a safe, and wonderful treatment that I use primarily on the muscles of the back and shoulders. In my method of cupping, I use glass cups that look like miniature gold fish bowls. A burning alcohol swab is used to burn off the air inside the cup just before the cup is placed on the body. The pressure differential between the inside of the cup and the outside atmosphere causes the skin and muscle tissue to be drawn into the cup. This suction causes stagnant blood and fluid to be drawn to the surface where the body can more easily remove it. We can adjust the intensity of the experience by increasing or decreasing the amount of suction into the cup. However, the over-all experience is very relaxing.

CranioSacral Therapy

since 1997
CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch treatment that accesses core membranes in the body with profound results. The craniosacral rhythm is the most basic, yet, the most subtle motion in the body. When this rhythm is in disharmony, the entire body is adversely affected.

I use the Upledger CranioSacral ten-step protocol as the format for my treatment. You wear clothes for this treatment.

Deep Tissue Massage

since 1994
The deep tissue massage therapy I perform allows your body to literally transform during and after the treatment session. The therapy releases restricted body patterns and removes the physical blocks to vibrant health. Harmony and balance are integrated back into the body structure as techniques appropriate to one’s condition are applied.

Gua Sha

since 1996
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese medicine technique that utilizes a tool for scraping a painful or problematic area of the body in order to pull stagnant intercellular fluid to the surface, remove metabolic waste, and infuse the area with freshly oxygenated, nutrient rich fluid and blood. This in turn accelerates regeneration and revitalizes that particular region of the body.


since 1996
Myopractics is a gentle form of dynamic manipulation and soft tissue techniques. Myopractics restores the body’s normal range of movement and flexibility, and eliminates tension and pain. You generally wear clothes for this treatment.

Pregnancy Massage Maternity Massage

since 1994
Pregnancy is one of the most important periods in which to receive caring and supportive, therapeutic touch. I invite you to nurture your body with prenatal massage therapy during this time of dramatic transformation. My approach is gentle and non-invasive. I ensure that the mother and baby are comfortable and well supported on the table. I use a special full body support system known as the bodyCushionTM that allows the mother to comfortably lay face down while on her belly.


since 1997
Reiki is “energy” work and operates on the energetic field of your body. This is not a massage, and you are clothed. My hands are placed lightly on your body. I tune into your “energy body” and “channel” the healing Reiki energy where it is needed.

I have received the Reiki Levels I and II attunement and have access to three symbols by which the healing energy is transmitted. The power of these symbols can only be used for good, and will work for no other purpose.


since 1994
Reflexology is more than just a good foot rub. It is a method for activating the healing powers of the body. Reflexology was founded on the principle that there are energy zones that run throughout the body, and reflex areas in the feet that correspond to all the major organs, glands, and body parts. Working on the feet is an ancient art, as is evident from historical artifacts, texts, and illustrations, and its therapeutic effects have been well recognized in many cultures.

Relaxation Massage

since 1994
Relaxation massage (aka: Swedish massage) starts with a meditative approach that promotes deep relaxation. This method emphasizes the use of a slower rhythm with a longer, sustained flowing touch that relieves stress, and integrates the entire body system, bringing it into balance.

Table Thai Massage

since 2001
You are fully clothed in a yoga style outfit, or loose-fitting, comfortable clothing, and no oil or lotion is normally applied. Thai massage is traditionally performed on a mat on the floor, however, I now only offer this treatment on my stationary table. The Table Thai massage treatment consists of passive, yoga-like stretches, with rhythmic compression and precise pressure point work along the energy lines and muscles in the body. Table Thai Massage can be a very relaxing treatment, or it’s effects can be therapeutically corrective when more pressure is applied.

Trigger Point Therapy

since 2001
Myofascial trigger points (TPs) are extremely common and become a distressing part of nearly everyone’s life at one time or another. Latent TPs, which may cause some stiffness and restricted range of motion, are far more common than active TPs. A myofascial TP is a hyperirritable locus within a taut band of skeletal muscle, located in the muscular tissue and/or its associated fascia. The spot is painful on compression and can evoke characteristic referred pain and autonomic phenomena. A myofascial TP is to be distinguished from a TP in other tissues, such as skin, ligament, and periosteum
