A Phenomenal Touch Massage
By Cedar Johnson
The difference between an ordinarily good massage and a phenomenal one has little to do with the strokes used or the pressure given. It has much more to do with the quality of touch; the capacity to give pressure with body weight versus strength; the stance, flow and smoothness of transitions; and the willingness to embrace the body three dimensionally, use gravity to your advantage, meet the person where they are, move their body as if it were fluid.
Described by some as having qualities of Watsu (water massage), Trager and Thai massage combined with Deep Tissue Work, Phenomenal Touch is truly unique, exceptional and deeply rewarding to those who receive this three-dimensional dance. There is nothing else like it and nothing else as satisfying. It is the ultimate evolution of masterful massage.

Andrew Jones Art
Wanderer Awake, Stretched canvas print, 36 x 38 inches.
Andrew Jones, or Android Jones as he is sometimes known, is a concept artist and an early adopter of digital art tools. He has worked for ILM, Black Isle Studios, Retro Studios and is currently art director for Massive Black. He was integral to the concepts for well known games like Nintendo’s Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Interestingly, his concept art of the Varia Suit and Space Pirate for the first Prime game are extremely reminiscent of the Echoes variants, rather than the ones actually used in Prime. It is likely that these designs were looked at during the production of Echoes, influencing the final designs of the suit and Pirates.
Jones did a 1,000 self-portrait series of himself and later claimed that “my portraits are quite a departure from my metroid concept work, but I think you would be surprised that there are a few of the portraits that were the inspiration behind the final bosses in prime 1 and two.
