They do this by offering services, education programs and products that enhance health and wellbeing. Developing this mission inspired them to name their business Designing Health.
All of the Designing Health services offer the opportunity to calm the nervous system, since many of us live in fight or flight mode, and take some time to reset. Services offered are diverse and there seems to be something for everyone. Clients can use one service or combine services for a more synergistic effect. One example is using the sauna before massage as it warms the muscles, putting them in prime condition for deeper stretching and tension relief. Designing Health offers synergy packages that encourage you to use multiple services and/or have many sessions to enjoy a cumulative effect.
