About Therapeutic Massage
Massage is an instinctive medicine. When, as a child, you had ‘tummy ache’ you rubbed your tummy and the pain began to disappear. When, as a child, you were playing and fell over - you got up and rubbed the part that hurt. No one had taught you to rub it, yet instinctively you did so and you felt better for it.
