Philosophy of massage and acupuncture:

A conversation takes place prior to the treatment relating to the clients needs.  A comprehensive treatment plan is created by the therapist with the client's agreement.  The goal being relief, healing, satisfaction and well-being.


Why we do what we do:

Ed has received massage therapy for 22 years and has realized the benefits of massage for relaxation and therapeutic reasons.  He wants to  pass that benefit on to people who are in need.

Donna has always had a nurturing side, and has been a caregiver for elderly patients for over 20 years.

Amy is relatively new to the business, but also has a compassionate nature and has been helping others for several years.

Susan discovered acupuncture when she went for treatment herself and was convinced of its benefits and became a practitioner
