Benefits of Massage

If you haven’t had a Therapeutic Massage yet, please promise yourself you will do it soon! I’ve had older clients exclaim after their first massage ‘I wish I had known about this YEARS ago, I would have had such a better life!’ Don’t let this happen to you! 🙂

I’ve broken this up into physical and mental benefits.
