What are some of your favourite ways to unwind?
Relaxing in the bath with a good book is the ultimate way to unwind. As long as you don’t mind all your pages starting to curl!
Things that you must always have on hand in your kitchen?
My fiancé, haha! I’m not allowed in the kitchen anymore, I’d burn water if I could.
Preferred exercise style and why?
Honestly, taking my dog for long walks. I’m much more of an outdoorsy exercise girl. The constant change of scenery, the fresh air, with the added perk of giving my Puggle a good workout!
3 words that come to mind when you think of massage therapy?
Tranquility, Good-pain (I’m counting that as one!), Preventative
A favourite quote?
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
Thanks for sharing! Give us a call of have a look online for Tess’ next availability.
