Many people in today’s world experiences issues surrounding both quantity and quality of sleep. These disturbances include difficulty falling asleep, midnight waking, nightmares or tiring dreams, tossing and turning, waking early in the morning, or waking unrested. Sleep difficulties can have negative physical and mental effects on both your short- and long-term health. Poor sleep is often associated with accompanying symptoms such as fatigue, poor memory or concentration, mood swings, and more.

- Remedial massage can address injuries, pain or stress that interfere with sleep. It can help encourage a relaxed, restful state of the body and mind.
