Any time is a good time to get a massage. You don’t need to wait until you’re stressed or injured. Too often clients wait until they reach this state to see me. Massage works wonders as preventive care for a person’s body and mind. Instead of waiting until your back hurts from overwork or s tress, or the headaches that start at the back of your skull begin to pound, or the stress of every day life makes you develop serious road rage, get a massage before these things happen. A regular massage is a wonderful way to cope with stress, both physical and emotional, and to keep if from causing discomfort or harm to your body.
