Shadow Harrison, December’s Featured Therapist Deep Tissue Registered Massage Therapist

shadowShadow crossed our doorsteps here at Healing Connections 5years ago.    She works every Wednesday late pm and  into the evening and every other thursday  pm and evening.  Every clinic loves having a therapist that when a client calls and ask for a deep tissue massage , they are able to say ” Yes” we have a great therapist who does deep tissue.

They inevitably ask for assurance that the therapist actually does deep tissue and we are able to absolutely reassure them that yes… Shadow does deep tissue and is able to lighten up her touch if the client calls for that.   Shadow brings professionalism, skill and integrity to our clinic.   We are a better soup of therapists with her contribution and her presence.     With no further adieu… Let us introduce Shadow to you.

Warmly,

Jane Lightbody
