Robert integrates any of several bodywork modalities for a unique treatment that is individualized to each client's needs:
With this innovative method, I work on you using my feet instead of the Western method of hands, forearm, and elbow. Ashiatsu Oriental 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!
Pronounced "ah- she- hot- sue", Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is also known as Deepfeet Bar Therapy.
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 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.
It is perfectly acceptable for you to wear clothing during your massage treatment, if you perfer to not be nude. You are also invited to wear your underpants for any style of treatment.
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.

Deepfeet Bar Therapy is also known as Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. Pronounced "ah- she- hot- sue".
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.
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.
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.
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 (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.
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.
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.
First-time Client Special:
$65 - One hour - Any treatment (Limited Time Offer)
$100 - 90 minutes - Any treatment/combination
$80 - 60 minutes - Any treatment/combination
$60 - 60 minutes - Energy work only (CranioSacral and/or Reiki)
Many establishments advertise an hour, or an hour and a half, but do not actually deliver that. For example, instead of an hour, you really only receive 50 minutes of hands on therapy. Not with me. An hour treatment means an hour of hands on time. As well, an hour and a half treatment means an hour and a half of hands on time. Additionally, no tip is required, nor is one expected. The rates are my price.

Robert Byrnes was voted the best Massage Therapist in Phoenix.
"That was the best massage I've ever had!" is the most common response I hear from my clients at the end of their session.
My name is Robert Byrnes and I am a Nationally Certified, Licensed Massage Therapist practicing in Phoenix, Arizona since 1994. I have worked very hard to establish my massage practice and my professional standing. I have built my reputation as a safe, trustworthy, and caring individual. I create a safe and nurturing environment where clients can relax, heal, and rejuvenate themselves.
I graduated from the 1500 hour Massage Therapy and Myopractics program at the Institute for Natural Therapeutics in Mesa, Arizona and I am certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. (NCBTMB)
I continually improve my skills every year through on-going studies and advanced training. In 2013, I studied Oriental Medicine at Phoenix Institute for Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture. In the fall of 2012, I received training in Ashiatsu, or Deepfeet Bar Therapy. In the fall of 2010, the spring of 2012, and the fall of 2014, I attended Erik Dalton's Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques seminars, with Erik and Paul Kelly. I was blown away by their understanding of the body and the effectiveness of their methods. This work fits in beautifully with my corrective massage therapy techniques. In the summer of 2008, I studied Traditional Thai Massage in Thailand for 30 days. Between 1998 and 2005, I completed 168 hours of advanced massage training at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.
I am strong and I can work deeply. I am sensitive and I can work subtlety. Most importantly, I strive to create a unique treatment that is individualized to each client's needs. I don't simply go through the motions of applying a standard massage routine. I purposefully employ techniques that are specific to the client's condition in that moment. And this certainly varies with every body! Generally, I will work on a problem area until I feel some kind of release, such as a softening or lengthening in the area, or an increase in the range of motion. The client, of course, experiences relief.
The most important aspect of my work is the quality of my touch. For example, in deep tissue massage I am focused on inducing change in the body. But I don't just hack at the body mechanically with brute force. I can work with great strength and power in a relaxed and flowing manner because I know the body and I know how to engage it with full consciousness. This allows me to take the client to a deeper level of connection, relaxation, and transformation.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of service today.
May my hands be guided for the Highest Good
as we receive God's blessings
and channel the healing energy of Love.
