Along with the school and license each therapist obtains and the continuous education required by the Louisiana Board of Massage Therapy, our Therapists undergo continuous education every three weeks. Our office brings in speakers from the most experienced Massage Therapists and Physical Therapists to Ph.D. Graduates and Chiropractic Doctors.
"Knowledge is knowing a fact. Wisdom is knowing what to do with that fact." - B.J. Palmer
Our Therapists are Licensed, Experienced Therapists that understand that each person requires specific and individual attention. Some people enjoy an occasional massage for relaxation, but our hope is that you will use this service to its fullest potential. Regular therapeutic work weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly is a benefit to overall health and can provide great relief to chronic discomforts.
