Absolutely. It is healing for my own body to massage someone and to give the gift of healing to another person.

Yes. I have lots of repeat clients.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I am gracious and grateful to every client regardless of who they are or where they come from. I believe in Asian hospitality and politeness. I have also been known to tie someone's shoelaces because well, that's what we do in Asia!

Totally rejuvenated and relaxed, and ready for whatever the world throws at him!

Running, lifting weights, reading, cooking, writing, travel, kayaking, and all new adventures.

He was an extremely gracious gentleman and in turn, said I offered him an outstanding massage!

Yes, the more training, the more likely you will be successful. But long experience, through trial and error, is also necessary to perfect one's craft and intuitive sense.

That they are on top of the world, ready to meet all challenges.
