Your body works hard.. Be nice to it..

I always had a sense that human touch could be healing.  My interest in massage dates back to over a decade when I discovered the benefits as an avid runner.  The help it provided  with my sore and tense muscles opened my eyes to not only a new world of healing but of opportunity to help others as well. When I would receive a massage, I always walked away rejuvenated and often times even encouraged by my therapist. I thought that it would be a great thing if I could provide this for others.  ...

I always had a sense that human touch could be healing.  My interest in massage dates back to over a decade when I discovered the benefits as an avid runner.  The help it provided  with my sore and tense muscles opened my eyes to not only a new world of healing but of opportunity to help others as well. When I would receive a massage, I always walked away rejuvenated and often times even encouraged by my therapist. I thought that it would be a great thing if I could provide this for others.  After some research, I began to discover the world of massage therapy and its countless benefits.  In school. I quickly fell in love with the learning and thought of blessings others.   
    When my beautiful wife Christine was diagnosed with breast cancer, I knew this journey would be a challenge for her, but I also knew she would not walk it alone.  I wanted to help her through this any way I could.  One thing I felt could aide in her comfort and relaxation was massage.  There were techniques and strategies that needed to be employed not only to bring her comfort, but help her on her path of healing as well. It was a difficult season for her, myself and our 8 children but together we got through it.  She is now cancer free and we consider ourselves blessed.  Massage is so much more than just a feel good luxury.   yes, it is a way for a person to escape for a bit but it also is a way for a person to do something extremely beneficial for themselves that will aide in their overall health, well being and even their healing.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Yalissa on Sep 12
My provider John went above and beyond to accommodate us and meet my expectations fast response time very polite and courteous, and was one of the only massage places in the area that could fit us in for a couples massages on a short notice, I've personally never had a massage before I loved the overall experience would go again the environment was very welcoming, cozy, calm and tranquil enjoyed every minute of it. If you are in need of a massage I would highly recommend everyone to check out with healing hands, you won't be disappointed John certainly got it right when he named his place of business he truly does have healing hands.
