Massage - Ada Friend, LMT
Ada has had a passion for massage for years, so she decided to make it her career hoping to make a difference in the medical field for others. By introducing alternative medicine, she hopes to show that healing can be done through massage therapy and that there are other options that may eliminate the dependency upon medications alone.
In this art of therapy, Ada really enjoys finding the best individualized treatment to help someone not only relax, but to ease pain by listening to the muscles and watching the response. She also enjoys the act of stretching either done actively by helping the person or allowing them to passively be stretched. Ada is looking forward to meeting many new people and helping where she can.
