This approach stimulates the regeneration of cells, while relaxing the body, ”she said.

However, after trying massage, I found it quite safe and really comfortable. It is like an electric current passing through the body. Before, I used to ache all over my body. After a period of therapy, my hips and lower back were better than before, “said one guest.
