therapy is safe, gentle and subtle bodywork. This technique
is a model of simplicity - it provides maximum results
with minimum of intervention. The work consists of a series
of precise moves on specific points of the body, which
can be done over loose clothing. The relaxation response
that occurs is the ideal situation for healing.
Benefits are usually apparent with one to three sessions,
even for chronic complaints. Results are rapid and long
