Resources

As a professional in the wellness field, I know that people will need to reach out and trust me for reliable information on health and wellness lifestyle and pain management. I’ve compiled a list of resources with reliable information to help guide diverse groups and populations towards health. My career is in massage therapy, so I have shared many websites and articles in this area. I also want to share relevant information (organizations, books, articles etc that you can refer to) about fitness, nutrition, and stress management as all of these are complementary to massage therapy, and helping you achieve optimum wellness.
