Something to Aspire To

“A great massage goes to the core of who we are. Not only does it feel good, but massage teaches us the art of being without doing– the secret of contentment. In the right hands, massage releases much more than our muscular tension. It allows us to relinquish our fears, let go of pent-up emotions, feel our untapped joy, work through grief, and surrender the old, conditioned responses and ideas that no longer serve us.”
