I agree with Daniel. I prefer to massage this group over the general public. I get more satisfaction that my profession means something. I go to 8 group homes in Maryland and Pennsylvania. I am licensed in both states. I plan on doing more homes and doing it full time.

As with the general population many modalities are applied as needed. But I find this group to require greater presence, patience, and respect.

Exactly what is comfort touch? Never heard of it before.
