Our Philosophy

We believe that massage and bodywork is most effective when it is experienced with regularity... that massage should be a personal practice created to help ease the stresses of everyday life and developed to provide the body with the proper tools needed to heal from physical and emotional trauma and injury. As well as creating a harmonious balance of mind and body, we believe massage and bodywork should be a ritual of self.
