"The massage therapists listen, but also advise on stretches or ways to alleviate pain or stress. Since coming for massage therapy, I have noticed stress levels decreased, aches and pains are not so bad, coping with a hectic schedule is not as overwhelming. I highly recommend craniosacral massage as it helps you get your focus back."
