improve as noticed by the customer, as well as ones noticed by the masseuse
for body, foot or even face.
When I experienced it, my feet were of fatigued and the masseuse noticed
it too and performed a small massage of my body, tired shoulders and back
that had been seriously damaged. I was surprised at all pain areas they
pointed so I selected a massage plan based on the masseuse's advice.

It is often thought that massages require an endurance of pain, but that's
a huge misunderstanding, and we would encourage you to point out any feeling
of pain, as the masseuse can moderate the power.
