My exercise and work endurance was on the road to being back to normal just after the 2 sessions of your therapuetic massages. Boy am I glad my brother -in-law told me about you when I was visiting ABQ. Thank you Ruth for helping me! I hope to have more sessions as I visit NM. Being a nurse and feeling the release of tension has been an amazing process for me. Expecially being post 2 years suffering from a knee sprain. My GOD blessed your mind and hands while you work. We are all so grateful for you!

I loved the atmosphere of the space. Also, that the big black calm dog kept me company while I was getting ready for the session. The expertise of Ruth is extrodinary. She gets right to the problem and knows what to do to help.

Ruth is a caring and compassionate therapist who has the most unique method of massage I have ever encountered. She massages two areas of the body at once - understanding how they are related - and the effect is almost like having a four handed massage. It is also sweet to have her dog Fred in the room, as he soaks up and gives out good energy.

Ruth has great skill in reading a person's weakness and working on making it stronger. She is demanding in her workouts, but compassionate when it gets to be too much. When I just couldn't do anymore because my knee hurt to the point of tears, she stopped and thought about what I could do to strengthen my core without hurting the knee. She's very thoughtful in designing excercises for the individual. I don't like working out, but I look forward to working with Ruth. I know my knee replacement will go much better because of her help.
