Modern Medicine has shown us that in trauma it can work miracles. Every healing system has its strengths and weaknesses. There is no healing method that monopolises the medicinal world which is why complimentary medicine should be embraced as it works together with modern medicine, in a common goal to relieve human suffering, working well with diseases that are not trauma related.

Deep tissue massage focuses on the different layers of tissue (muscle, tendons and fascia), working to relax, lengthen, and release strain patterns within them so that the body’s posture can realign itself.
