Many people come in for Injury Rehabilitation, while others are seeking more of a relaxing and restorative form of BodyWork. Sessions can be with lotion on the bare skin, or can be performed with active-wear clothing on, depending on client preference. For those seeking regular weekly or bi-weekly treatment, Abhik will customize your sessions to be comfortable and nurturing, increasing overall well-being and vitality. However, many clients come in for brief therapy, when needed. Regular treatment sessions are advised one to four times per month, for most people who recognize the benefits of Abhik's careful and respectful style of Massage Therapy.
