Massage Caring for ourselves totally.

Each one of us is a multi-faceted being: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Awareness of who we are in all these dimensions helps us achieve the wholeness of an integrated person. Caring for ourselves totally, including the body, allows for healthier and deeper relationships with ourselves and others. Massage simply means to touch, handle, or press softly. Swedish Massage is the manual manipulation of soft body tissue through strokes, kneading, pressing, and tapping for therapeutic purposes.
