Please note: This is not your typical massage therapy session as our massage therapists will be using manual therapy for the purpose of movement. This may mean getting you up throughout the session to focus on movement. If you’re looking for a massage therapist that will get you results, this is the place. Please wear shorts and sports bra/tank top (as applicable). We can't wait to work with you!
