Massage Livingston gift certificates benefit service dogs for vets

Massage Livingston is donating 20 percent of its gift certificate sales this holiday season to the Veterans Service Dogs organization.

Owner and massage therapist Rachel O’Connor is the wife of a veteran, and she says she can relate to the stress vets experience. The organization’s mission is to provide service animals to US Military Veterans, and train both the service animal and the veteran. The training of each dog is tailored to the veteran in need. The dogs assist with disabilities like PTSD, panic disorders, physical disabilities, bipolar disorder, seizures, and many more.

Massage Livingston is the only massage studio offering Ashiatsu massage, also known as barefoot massage. O’Connor says it’s a unique and effective massage in which she can apply a deep and even pressure, which helps to create a painless but deep massage experience.

Massage Livingston is located at 815 E. Grand River Ave., Suite B, in Howell. For more information, call (517) 862-6147.
