Sharon made me feel comfortable and at ease, the massage was amazing and very relaxing. She was gentle but firm and it felt so good I was in heaven and when finished my body felt rejuvenated. Mary A
Massage is a therapy that is commonly used to relax, stimulate and relieve pain. Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments to improve muscle tone.
Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.

Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage uses firm pressure focusing on releasing deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue that are tight and may be causing pain. It is particularly helpful for chronic aches and pains.
I had been meaning to get a back massage for ages and a friend recommended Sharon. I am so glad I made the time it felt so good. Trouble is I want one every day now! Jackie F
