Ruth Cummings

God, Family, Balance, Simplicity & Love

These are my compass. Massage is a part of each. I believe that hope is a big piece in relieving chronic pain. 

The human body is an amazing system & I am honored to work with each & every client.  

Sports Massage is my specialty, especially runners, fighters, golfers & tennis players. My favorite problems to solve are in the neck, shoulder, forearm & hand, diaphragm, low back, hips, knees & feet.  That's a long list, but I find that they all work together to create and solve problems.

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.

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.

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.

Switch this with the first review. Ruth's office is on the smallish side, but she makes it work. The rest room is always clean, the atmosphere is relaxing, the floor is clean. The wall needs to be finished painted

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.
