Morgan believes there is a difference in Relaxation massage and Therapeutic massage, although Therapeutic massage does bring about increased relaxation, Morgan believes the true meaning of a Therapeutic massage is that both the client and therapist have a shared goal of achieving structural changes within the body. A therapeutic massage means you present to the therapist with a specific complaint, and then the therapist performs massage that is specific to your complaint. Therapeutic massages are used to heal, through reducing pain and working on specific problem areas in your body. Morgan wants to help you become a better you.
