I have been seeing Blanche with Muscles in Knead for a year now for severe nerve pain and muscle spasms due to a car accident.
She has helped me tremendously with her services of hot stone therapy and lymphatic drainage massage. This enables me to move freely with minimal pain.
The great thing about Blanche is that she really listens to what you need. I have had others in the past that continue to do what they want, even when you tell them what you need and that was frustrating!!
Blanche is willing to try whatever it takes to relieve your pain or discomfort. She is a warm and caring person and awsome with her hands!!! I am blessed to have found such a great massage therapist…

What is Massage?
Massage is the application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body and is thought to be the oldest healing arts. Dating as far back as 2,700 B.C., ancient Eastern Chinese records document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.
Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. An accepted part of many physical rehabilitation and alternative medicine programs, massage therapy also has been recognized as playing an important role in treating many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. In addition, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living aiding in overall health and general wellness.
