  • Reflexology massage

  • Swedish massage

When you come in for a massage therapy consultation at APMI Wellness Center, our therapists spend time talking to you so they can fully understand your health needs and wellness goals.

Based on the information gathered during your consultation, your massage therapist talks to you about the types of massage therapy techniques best suited for you. You may even benefit from more than one technique.

Many people also benefit from more than one session to get the best results.
