REFLECTIONS

The turning of the year is a good time to take the opportunity to look back and reflect – the highs and lows, the challenges and the bright sparks.

It’s All in the Head!

Indian Head Massage was the first massage I learned many years ago and it is still up there as one of the most requested massages. I think most people have at least heard of it or maybe have a friend that has tried it and so it has slipped into mainstream massage territory. Part […]
