“I believe that our body always wants to be in balance. If we listen to what our body is saying, when there is either re-occuring tightness in the muscles or pain, by loosening those muscles with massage, we could possibly avoid surgical intervention. We are always given medication as the answer to all our troubles (with severe side effects) when we should be going back to natural homeopathic remedies. I am continually learning new techniques to best help my clients, as their well-being is her main goal.” - Rose Raftery-Doyle
