Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I liked how Ruth gave me knowledge about my body and the exercises she gave me to do on my own. Very helpful

    My son is a 15 year old basketball player and Ruth is the best. She truly knows her stuff and we will be continuing with her.

  • Ruth takes time to get to know you and your body so she can treat you holistically. She's knowledgeable and kind, and she's helped me sort out some long-standing patterns of stress and tension. She's guided me to new levels of awareness that go beyond the time I spend in sessions with her. Highly recommend!

    Ruth knew exactly what to work on and to start releasing the tension that was creating the problems.

  • Ruth has a lot of experience with sports-related injuries which I found really helpful.

    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!

  • Working on some real solutions to issues. Only wish I'd done this sooner than a week prior to my marathon!

    I especially like her "gentleness" both in touch and spirit.

  • The best in town.

    Ruth is very open to discussion about working on certain parts of your bofy. She's also helpful with suggestions on how to work on it outside of her care.

Top Class Sports Therapist. Very friendly and extremely knowlagable. Has an overview of most sports and as a former athlete Ruth can relate to your injury. I went there as a marathon runner.

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.

I had a great experience at Athletic Touch! I have had a couple of injuries in which Ruth has identified the root cause and taken the extra time to work with me and go through some rehabilitating exercises and stretches. I feel confident that I will return to 100% thanks to Ruth!

I dislike the fact that I have to have a knee replacement and that I have to do workouts to get stronger. But I know it will be a whole lot better if I get stronger and Ruth is helping me do that!
