♥ Massage & Bodywork

For massage and bodywork appointments, simply choose "The Basic" style of bodywork you would like to receive and leave the rest up to us.  We will consult with you before each appointment to design an individual customized session for you, layering in any "Fusions" you care for or would best address any tension, disharmony, pain, or discomfort you are experiencing in your body.
