How I found this work
I have been looking for my mission in life, since I was a young person. I hadn't found it in two degrees from the University. In the late 1980’s, I found myself on a healing track.

clinic, and health club.
I founded Ariel Massotherapy in July, 1995.

Hebrew, that it was one of seven names for the city of
