  • Our massages were exceptional

    I received my first massage from Marilou Richard at a Health Festival. I was so impressed that I recently booked appointments for me and my husband. We both think that our massages were exceptional, the best that we've ever had! We plan to schedule massages at Healthier State on a regular basis.

    The best ever massage I have ever had. I normally have big problems with my back and neck when sitting for many hours in the plane. After this session, I travelled to china for 14 hours, no pain, no problem.
