“In all my years of being a massage therapist I’ve come to realize that a client books a massage looking for one of two things. Either results or a relaxing experience. I try to give them both.
I like to use a combination of deep muscle and tension release techniques along with relaxation and stress-relieving strokes, giving my client the best of both worlds. I like to leave my client with the lasting impression of relaxation and a caring, healing touch. I feel we can never have enough of that in our lives”. ~Kelly Marie, LMT
