Massage or

Lymphatic Drainage

Massage is an enjoyable experience and therapeutic at the same time. Many therapies to relieve pain, such as chiropractic or acupuncture actually cause more pain and inflammation and stress actually involve pain, causing you to tense-up (guarding) during treatment.

 

 

Massage is about relaxing and letting go of pain

 

Massage is beneficial in many ways, bringing change in a variety of ways for different people. The holistic nature of massage to improve general health and well-being with regular massage sessions cannot be understated.
