2nd Ave Massage Therapy Clinic


Beliefs and Ambitions

Everyone should be able to have massage therapy treatments as a option for better health! Massage therapy can be expensive and those who made benefit from it most may not have it as an option, MSP covers a fraction of the cost for massage therapy if their are multiple health concerns, medications, disability, massage may not be available. Please contact me for a form discussing your situtation and need for massage therapy treatment. I will provide RMT services to 1 individual for 10 weeks of 30 minute treatments. This is a value of $450 which is designed to aid the community, and expand my understanding of how massage therapy can help a broader population. I will offer this program 3 times a year. Please contact me to see if you are an applicant.
