Connecting with and serving our community

We encourage you to participate in any of these Annual Events. For more information, contact: Cheryl Hockett-Prelle 360-733-2368

As we continue supporting our communities, more people will consider massage when they want to improve their health. Involvement in our community is a rewarding experience for each of us and supports us, our businesses, and our profession. Is there an event that you support that should be added to this list? Let us know!
