I am a strong believer in science. My work is grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology, not “healing” or “energy balancing”. There are some massage myths that get rehashed by complementary therapists, for example, that it detoxes you or that you need to drink lots of water after a massage. Neither of these are necessarily true. I am working on a project to try to debunk some of the bad science and educate people about how their bodies work. If you are a professional in the healthcare field and would like to be involved or want more information, please contact me.
