Want to know what THIS massage therapist “doesn’t want you to know”?

I don’t want you to know that I accidentally had onions on my sandwich at lunch and then had to chew four Altoids to get rid of the dragon breath.

I don’t want y...

"We're all in this together."

"In these uncertain times..."

We've heard all of this so often they're starting to lose their meaning.

At Patient Relaxation LLC, we're putting our effort into actions, not words.

I've been a massage therapist/massage student for over 7 years, and before that, I've been a flutist and piano player since I was about 8 years old.

Have LOTS of them!

“Ugh. My posture is terrible.”
