Here are some “tools” that I have used to take care of my body over the years. Some are pretty basic and some are a little more “industrial grade”. Feel free to ask me about any of them or even stop by my massage practice sometime if you want to try one of them out.

This is one of those tools that has to be tried to be appreciated, kind of like my massage..but ah, I digress 🙂 More Information
