Massage Therapists in Monrovia

Jonathan Whittle-Utter, Massage Therapist  in Monrovia
“As a massage therapist I believe in the healing power of touch. Knowledge of anatomy and advanced massage techniques are important, but only the beginning. Great bodywork should directly engage the whole person, helping you release unhealthy patterns and engage with a deeper awareness of your body and how it works. That is where the real healing comes from. I'll work with your injuries, tensions, and stress, and I'll also work with you as a whole human being - body, heart and mind - to offer you the care and positive regard that you deserve.
