Your safety is always our first priority in any massage treatment, yet we are particularly careful to create a safe environment for you. You are likely to be in distress not only because of your injuries, but also because you may be unable to fulfill your normal work, family, and community obligations. “Normal life” has probably gone by the wayside as you deal with doctors and other health care providers, insurance companies, personal injury attorneys, auto body shops, and other people you never wanted to meet. The last thing you need is more stress, so we create a welcoming space, listen to you attentively, and communicate clearly throughout your massage treatments.
