It was a great joy to provide a therapeutic "time-out" to the women who dedicated the afternoon of May 19th at the Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting to themselves. So many hard working & selfless women graced our massage chairs and allowed us to ease their stress, even if just for a few glorious minutes. To allow a complete stranger into your energy space and hope they can ease stress is a huge deal for many who have not yet experienced the wonders of massage therapy, or have had bad experiences in the past. We're grateful we were able to provide positive, therapeutic experiences that day!!
Myself & Ariel Monroe were honored to be part of this event, and we look forward to doing it again on Saturday, September 23rd!
