Bodywork can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen, regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management.) In addition to physical benefits, the emotional balance that bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable.

The benefits of massage increase ten-fold with frequent visits; this is the beauty of bodywork. Receiving massage as part of your regularly scheduled self-care routine can truly encourage a healthy mind, body, spirit and help you remain youthful with each passing year.

Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your Fousheé practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
