Massage therapy can reduce muscular & joint pain

Massage uses systemised 


manual manipulations 


of soft tissue 


to relieve or 


heal a disorder



Every massage is tailored to your needs. Using therapeutic massage in combination with a 1-2 minute mindfulness focusing on your body, you become aware of the area requiring massage and can reach a deep state of relaxation before even getting on the massage table. See client 'Testimonials' for detail. The benefits of massage reach well beyond the Integumentary system and the most superficial layer of tissue, our skin. Massage therapy is beneficial to numerous body systems including the Circulatory, Nervous, Musculoskeletal, Digestive and Respiratory body systems.
