Philosophy: 
"I am continually amazed by the resiliency of our bodies. They roll us through those stressful times of overwhelm, lack of sleep, overtraining and computer posture. The signs of distress are there. I, personally, receive regular monthly massage and bi-monthly acupuncture. Proper supplements, in conjunction with functional exercise and somatics (postural muscle strengthening), make a huge difference in how I function. Massage plays an extraordinarily important role in our long-term health and wellbeing. Facilitated Wellness, as a business, came from this strongly held belief."
