Through the art of massage therapy, Wayne took us on a journey on how massage therapy can be a tool to aid in the healing of the mind, body, and spirit.   Wayne was clear in his message that massage therapy is not a replacement for curative care, yet a viable avenue to help reduce stress while being an aid in healing.
