Massage at CoreYoga
Maintaining a healthy body is about balance. Emotional, mental, physical and spiritual balance.
At CoreYoga we have two amazing massage therapists. We have great pleasure in introducing Elke Chappell and Julian Smith who bring an extensive amount of knowledge and experience in the field of massage.
Tension and pain of any sort is the bodies way of alerting us to a growing inbalance; which if not addressed becomes more deeply ingrained and harder to correct, often developing into disease. Deep tissue remedial massage is an effective method of addressing these imbalances.
Pain is something you should not get used to!
