'A natural alternative to stress and pain'
When you experience pain or discomfort, your body is trying to tell you something. At South Hills Therapeutic, we listen to the story your body is trying to tell. Before your massage, we take the time to get to know you a bit to gain insight into your own unique background and lifestyle.
What sort of work do you do? Where are you hurting and for how long? How do you manage your stress and your pain? How active are you?
It's by investing this time and attention and actively listening to you and your needs that gives us the insight to tailor your treatment plan and address your specific symptoms.
