About Us

Touch Therapeutic Massage was created with the firm belief that "massage" is an important investment in your health...it is not an indulgence but a vital tool to help you stay healthy and balanced.

 

In this modern fast paced society we continuously burden our body, mind and spirit with phenomenal amounts of stress, pressure and toxins but fail to provide adequate means to cope. So why are we then surprised when our bodies weaken unable to deal with the challenges, resulting in common modern ailments presenting disease and dysfunction. At Touch Therapeutic massage it is my philosophy that massage is part of the solution...allow yourself the journey towards regaining better health. Massage can be incorporated into a preventative or maintenance plan, complimentary to modern medicine and treatment.
