{ Advert: DEEP TISSUE REMEDIAL MASSAGE }

Not a luxury but essential for health!

Headaches? Migraines? Stress? Back pain?
Knee pain? Sore muscles? Stiffness? Chronic tiredness?

Deep tissue remedial massage can help!

* What is deep tissue remedial massage?

A deep tissue massage is exactly what it sounds like. The
massage therapist will first identify areas of the body in
which there is tension, and then using various techniques,
will first work to remove the tension in the surface areas
of the muscles. The therapist will then go deeper and deeper
into the muscle to isolate and remove the true source of the
tension.

* Who needs deep tissue massage?

Almost everyone carries tension somewhere in their bodies.
This massage can help anyone with problems, from stress
through simple niggles or injuries, to chronic muscle and
joint pain.

* How much will it cost?

This is a full body massage in which one should ideally
invest one-and-a-half hours. The normal cost is 70 but if
you cite this advertisement, I will offer you the massage
for 50.

For an appointment with Nikki Anderson,
please call 07793 047747 or email nixi71@yahoo.co.uk
