"My favorite massage experience is when a client comes to see me and they aren’t quite sure what type of massage they want/need. The client explains their various symptoms to me, I present them with some of my technique options, and together we choreograph their massage. Once their massage is complete, as they walk out of the room with an ear to ear smile, the only thing that comes out of their mouth is, “amazing”."
