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. Massage can be a way of assisting the body to heal
itself from results of physical or emotional stress. A
