Whether the goal of massage is relaxation, stress relief, structural balance, acute and chronic pain relief or increased range of motion and flexibility, each session is guided by the client's needs.
As we live, work and play muscles and joints are put under stress. Our bodies adapt and adjust to the stress and strain we demand of them until pain becomes an indication that we are doing damage.
