Patty Harris-Herdener, L.M.T. is our massage therapist. Patty provides massage therapy to increase the health of the body’s cells. The individual cells of the body are dependent on an abundant supply of blood and lymph because these fluids supply nutrients and oxygen and carry away wastes and toxins. Massage is known to increase the circulation of blood and flow of lymph. The direct mechanical effect of rhythmically applied manual pressure, the stimulation of nerve receptors, and the movement used in massage can dramatically increase the rate of blood flow, increasing circulation and thereby promoting health.
