Listening to your needs, being present and skillfully not forcefully release tension that allows your body mind and spirit to heal on the deepest level.
“The notion of "Via Medens" Therapeutic Massage began with the concept of well-being as a path and a process rather than a destination. Translated from the Latin as "The Way of Healing", it my hope that Via Medens will be able to represent a pathway leading to restoration for my clients.
