GOALS AND FOCUS
As someone eloquently said, “Massage Therapist… Creating Peace on Earth, one massage at a time.” – Sommercards.com
I listen through touch. Feeling for tight and stubborn muscles and tissues that need to be unstuck and released. These are additional skillful arts I use towards your healing.
