Alright, I know you might be getting sick of me harping on the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy. BUT I just had to make another post because I realized my last one was entirely focused on athletes.

While I was attending Utah College of Massage therapy out in the Provo Orem area, I had the chance to receive a deep tissue massage from some highly skilled therapists. Leslie from Diamond Massage Therapy gave me the best massage in Provo of all time! And trust me when I say that I do not take giving out such high praise very lightly.
During my long days in school, my neck often cramped up. I tried doing some stretching and yoga but it never seemed to really make much of a difference. However, as soon as the deep tissues started, I immediately experienced more energy and relaxation in my day to day life.
