Touch of Light Healing & Bodywork, Massage Therapist  in West Chester
“My main focus is Myofascial Release Therapy. MFR is simply the most effective modality of bodywork available. Using a long stretch, low impact approach, I am able to release stiffness and pain that could have been years in the making. Seeing the body as one whole system allows me to see where the true origin of your pains and stiffness truly are. This technique allows me to go deeper that traditional "Deep Tissue" massage without the damaging force and trauma that deep tissue massage often causes. Simply put, this work allows you to feel younger!
