At Lifetime Massage Therapy, founder Grace Oswald takes great pride in making sure that when you walk in the door there is someone to take good care of you. In business for over 25 years, Lifetime Massage Therapy opened in 1992, with Katie Underwood joining the team in 2001. Together, they and Lifetime’s four additional therapists offer clients years of experience and amazing healing qualities.

Among the services offered, Lifetime’s massage therapy services provide clients with high quality, personalized treatment for their unique needs. The professional, courteous and efficient staff is available seven days a week to answer all of your questions and ensure that you are 100 percent satisfied.

Treatments include:

  • Massage Therapy – Specializing in deep tissue and injury treatment, massage is a proven course of therapy to repair soft tissue injury, increase circulation and improve muscle flexibility and function.
  • Bowen Massage Technique – The Bowen Technique is a remedial, hands-on therapy that is applied using very gentle pressure. The practitioner uses thumbs and fingers on precise points of the body to perform Bowen’s unique sets of rolling-type moves which stimulate the muscles and soft tissue of the body. The experience of a treatment is gentle, subtle and relaxing. It is believed that the Bowen Technique prompts the body to reset, repair and balance itself. Lifetime’s massage clients report the experience of pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy. “We have clients re-booking for Bowen therapy because they can’t believe the difference,” Oswald said.
  • Hyperbaric Chamber – Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a well-established detoxifying treatment for a wide range of conditions. It involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized tube in which the air pressure is increased up to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible by breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body, helping fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. “You can lie in there and sleep, text or read,” Oswald said. Lifetime Massage Therapy charges a minimal fee for this treatment.
  • Kangen Alkaline Water – For anti-oxidizing, detoxifying and hydrating, Kangen water has long been a top treatment. It can be used for drinking, preparing teas and other healthy drinks, and for cooking. At Lifetime Massage Therapy clients can take it home by the gallon, which is a perfect way to maintain an advanced state of health everyday.

Lifetime Massage has two convenient Tacoma locations – at 5213 Pacific Ave. and in a three-story medical facility at 1310 Union St., which Lifetime Massage Therapy shares with Dr. Wang and Dr. Ho. All insurance plans are accepted. “We are proud to also announce that we will be part of the medical/massage team for the Chambers Bay U.S. Open,” Oswald said.
