Massage is not a luxury. It should be a regular part of every normal, healthy lifestyle.


Massage improves quality of life, reduces blood pressure, reduces stress and anxiety, and helps to control pain.  Touch has a powerful effect on mood and well-being; massage has been shown to be as effective as psychotherapy for anxiety and depression.

Recipients of massage can be anyone, from professional and Olympic athletes to cancer patients, from infants in the NICU through palliative care. Massage is available to everyone from the ultra-rich in swanky spas to the folk healers found in the poorest places in the world.


Valence is proud to be an independent, locally owned and operated business serving people in Southwest Missouri since 2012.
