About Us

I had always thought of massage as a luxury, a way of pampering myself...which in my busy life never managed to be a priority. My first massage with Howard changed all that. Through his masterful touch and wealth of information, I now realize how important therapeutic, full body massage is to eliminating toxic waste buildup, supporting my endocrine system and maintaining my overall health throughout my senior years. It's now my top priority!
