In my early 20’s I had a severe accident that required lots of rehab. This was when I experienced massage therapy for the first time. Massage therapy was what had helped me recover the most. As a result, I have always seen massage therapy as a necessary form of treatment to improve one’s health.
What is one of the most common complaints you hear from patients, and what is the cause?
Many clients complain of back and neck aches, but the most common complaint I hear is of sudden swelling in their legs, face. Bloating is quite common too. The usual cause of these symptoms is a congested and slow lymphatic system, poor circulation, and inadequate mobility throughout the day.
