In SE, the practitioner facilitates client in greater awareness of internal processes (body and mind), find new choices so that client will feel and live healthier and happier.
Therapeutic Massage Relieving muscle tension, increased mobility, greater awareness of your own body, relaxing, taking a break from daily pressures–these are some of the benefits with this service. It can be provided separately from SETM; but often it is a part of SETM.
