The benefits of massage are diverse. No matter how great it feels, massage isn't just a luxury, it's a health necessity.

• High blood pressure patients demonstrate
lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and
• Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have

"Johannes is a gifted healer. He works with genuine kindness, a sincere interest in helping, and a true ability to effect change.
I live out of state but frequently make an appointment with him when I visit Vermont. He has often relieved significant, longstanding physical discomfort in a single bodywork session.
