Do you ever feel like you have too much? It can be an embarrassingly unique problem in our land of plenty in the United States, and yet so many of us live in a spirit of excess.

John L. Pantera Oct 18, 2017 Massage Therapy

You’ve got a sprinkler guy, an electrician, and a plumber you’d trust with your life.

What Should I Wear When I Get a Massage?

John L. Pantera Sep 27, 2017 Massage Therapy

In our studio, we get a ton of questions surrounding massage etiquette. And we understand the concern. After all – there’s something about being in a room with a complete stranger while he or she massages your muscles that tends to make one hyper-sensitive about being proper and considerate. One of the most common questions is “how much should I tip?”...
