Massage Therapy and wholistic modalities go hand in hand.
Massage is a great base modality to which other practices can be added either by the therapist or by seeing a regular number of professions.
An example would be using Massage Therapy and, Chiropractors, Nutritional Consultants, Naturopathic Doctors, Acupuncturists, Aromatherpists and other body work professions such as Bowen, Trager, Rolfing and or energy work such as Polarity or Reiki. They offer a more natural and drug free alternative and when used together treat the mind, body and spirit.
