My blend of styles comes from my 13+ years of working with all different types of bodies and a constant striving to create the best experience possible for my guests. I want every massage that I do to be the best one I've ever done. This is a collaborative effort from both me and my client. I am a careful and sensitive communicator, I take great effort to understand your needs and preferences prior to the session and tailor the experience to meet your expectations. In the treatment room, I am meditative and quiet. I try to let you absorb the experience and keep conversation limited to soliciting feedback as needed.
My style is a blend of trigger point, myofascial, and lomi lomi techniques. I'm interested in working with people who work at a desk or work a lot with their hands. I especially love helping people with upper back and neck pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome. I also enjoy working with those suffering from chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.
I love using trigger point techniques because the results are so tangible and immediate. Myofascial techniques allow me to greatly decrease tension for my clients in a gentle and non-invasive way, working with the body to encourage unwinding of tight connective tissue. Lomi lomi techniques allow me to keep a very meditative flow to my massage while blending in the other more targeted styles.
While I primarily work with clients suffering from chronic pain, I also love creating pampering spa experiences and immersing my guests in total relaxation. I recently created our Spa Journeys as an expression of that side of myself. I am a licensed esthetician who specializes in clean and natural beauty. I formulate and hand-make most of the products that are used in our treatments. For those products we use that I don't make myself, I choose brands that are committed to the same values. I am committed to using products in our spa that have as little environmental impact as possible, and ingredients that are safe for your body to absorb - plant-based, no preservatives, parabens, or mineral oils. I believe in the power and scientific research surrounding aromatherapy, which is why it is included in every service at The Deep Tissue Spa.

Amazing results even after one visit!! Definitely coming back!! Great deep tissue technique and a great relaxing masseuse also!! Thanks Carly
I went to Carly when I was in town visiting. Out of probably the hundreds of massages I’ve had (yeah...I’m a massage junkie) this was the best! Carly was attentive and informative. She asked a lot of questions before the massage started so she could fully understand my needs. Then she explained in detail how she would treat me so that I would fully understand what was happening. The massage itself was spot on and I walked away wishing I lived closer so I could regularly see her! From start to finish, Carly is really the best!
Carly was so concerned about my experience and satisfaction. She went above and beyond to ensure that my needs were met. She tailored her technique to address specific tension and muscle soreness. She is also kind and professional.
Carly was super accommodating and really worked hard to ensure I had a great experience. She melted away the tension I had in my neck, shoulders, and back. I highly recommend giving her a visit!
Carly is a true Godsend and St. Patrick’s Day is my new birthday! While taking a break from our daily walk on the beach, my husband and I first met Carly at a local event. I was hesitant at first. Not having the best track record with our current healthcare system and ultimately being left to advocate for myself had hardened me. However, after speaking with Corey and Carly for a few brief minutes that sunny day back in February… I decided to take advantage of the free five minute deep tissue massage. At this point, I literally had nothing left to lose but could never in a million lifetimes imagine how much I truly had to gain. Living with chronic pain for over three and a half years, I finally had a glimmer of hope. Painfully making my way through numerous specialists coupled with a myriad of medical tests and procedures (poking and prodding) I was dismissed. For the first time in years I was not only being heard but reassured that help was available. Wait. What? How is this even possible? Two words: MAGIC HANDS! Within minutes of Carly’s initial massage I had tears of joy and relief rolling down my face. She is by far one of my greatest blessings to date. Her knowledge of the human anatomy and willingness to share said knowledge is extraordinary and rare. Carly has an unparalleled gift. She is both talented and compassionate. Her spa is welcoming and inviting. She uses a number of additions (such as cupping, aromatherapy, hot towels, and sound) that take the deep tissue massage to the next level. She has helped me more in four months than all of my doctors combined have managed to do in four years. Carly is genuinely caring and concerned. Two qualities that are hard to come by. She has bettered not only my quality of life but my loved ones as well. She helps to manage my pain while gently reminding me that SELF CARE IS NOT SELFISH! Carly continuously encourages and guides me (in her super sweet, relentless, and highly effective way) to dig deeper, never quit, find that inner peace through resolve, and live life to the fullest! If you’re still reading this review then you are probably in pain. Do yourself a favor and try The Deep Tissue Spa. It really is one of the Space Coast’s finest hidden gems.
