Massage TherapyOur massage therapists at Weaving Hands Sanctuary for Healing are trained to listen to your body and focus on areas that need attention.
In addition to a deep state of relaxation and overall sense of well-being, the benefit of regular massage is to facilitate healing through the physical manipulation of muscle and joint tissue as well as the release of waste from the body.Using a combination of techniques, we do whatever your body is asking for.
We use all natural massage and aromatherapy products during your session. Massage sessions are typically 60 or 90 minutes, but new clients receive an assesment which may take longer. Our therapists do everything necessary to make you feel comfortable and relaxed in one of our private treatment rooms. Once we get started you will be on your way to total-body wellness.
