Mandy has become an integral part of my healthcare team. As someone with several chronic pain & health conditions she has made life bearable and helped me to come off pain medications. Her soft touch massage, experience & knowledge of R.E.S.T has been invaluable in moving forward with natural therapies in my journey.
