“Your therapeutic massage has helped him tremendously”
Dear Jennie, I am very happy with the results from your massage treatment of my horse Tang. As you know, he suffered a severe foot injury at the beginning of last winter. He was off work for about 5 months. When we got back to work, he was very tight in his neck and shoulders. Your therapeutic massage has helped him tremendously. He is now working beautifully. Thank you very much for your help. I want to tell everyone about it!!!!. Thanks again.
