PARTNER 2 PARTNER MASSAGE
Have you ever come home sore and stiff after a long day of work in need of a shoulder or foot rub? Your partner lovingly and generously obliges, only to give what feels like aliens poking at your aching knots? You try to correct them, but don't have the words to explain exactly what you are needing. The whole situation plays out in both of you feeling frustrated and disappointed.

Or you need support in how to create more time for self-care as a couple.
