A new business opened its doors on September 10 in Verona. Hannah Orser has opened a Registered Massage Therapy Clinic on Main St (right next door to Local Family Farms). Massage therapy involves a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body. Hannah told me that the benefits include decreased pain, increased relaxation and improved overall well being. Massage therapy can be used in the treatment of both acute and chronic stages of conditions. You can make an appointment with Hannah by calling 343-363-5746 (this is a local number).
