What the Different Types of Massage Therapy in a Spa Mean

Spa clients are simple people. Walking into the spa, they are not thinking about the type they want to receive.  Their only concern is to relax, get rid of the tension in muscles or the knot on their backs. It is up to the therapist to ask questions and determine what to offer. That is great but, it would be more fun to know what function each type serves. More about Centerville, OH can be seen here.
