Healing Touch Wellness Center
Unlike a student sleeping in class, when someone falls asleep at Healing Touch Wellness Center, the therapists know they are doing their job right. The popular relaxation massage welcomes clients to drift off into a slumber as therapists gently glide their hands across backs, calves, and arms. Tiny knots break apart at the therapists’ touch, releasing tension in the body. Clients can also opt for a more rigorous kneading session, where therapists use deep-tissue techniques that work the deeper muscle layers known to horde lost coins and cause chronic pain.
