A Powerful Ally
The experts estimate that about 90% of disease is stress related.  Perhaps, nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress.  While eliminating anxiety and stress altogether in this world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.  This translates into:
