This NEW installment of our Pain Management Series is for anyone who experiences pain. Our Professional Massage Team will be sharing techniques, exercises and movements to help you relieve/understand pain. Each month we will focus on a specific area in the body, provide the theory and physiology of pain and what you can incorporate into your lifestyle to find more ways to heal. If you understand why you experience pain, how to apply the right movements, exercises, stretching, classes, massage techniques and realize that pain is a way the body communicates to us, then we can move towards dealing and managing it.
