Wellness massage for stress management & relaxation
Calm the mind naturally, from within.
Wellness massage is an excellent way to calm the nervous system and increase the circulation. Relaxation massage is not aimed at solving any specific areas of pain or dysfunction but is aimed at balancing the whole body, calming the nervous system, increasing the blood flow to help cleanse the whole body. By relaxing the system your body can heal itself and often it will help the client to have improved sleep.

- Reduce muscle soreness
