Massage Therapist:

My practice is called Kuponya and the reason I came up with the name is because I believe massage therapist have the ability to heal with their hands. In Kuponya the most important quality is compassion and individualized care and treatment.  No one gets cookie cutter treatment.  Massage therapy is intuitive in that you use different modalities or tools without thinking knowing that what you are doing is correct for this particular client.

My practice is called Kuponya and the reason I came up with the name is because I believe massage therapist have the ability to heal with their hands. In Kuponya the most important quality is compassion and individualized care and treatment.  No one gets cookie cutter treatment.  Massage therapy is intuitive in that you use different modalities or tools without thinking knowing that what you are doing is correct for this particular client. 

After working in different massage practices I decided to open my own practice. The inspiration to run Kuponya was to bring relief from pain from all people.  During my training in Orthopedic Massage I learned that people go through years of endless constant persistent pain that does not go away and they learn to accept the pain feeling that this is what I must accept.  When Orthopedic Massage is performed and trigger points therapy, myofascial release, neuromuscular, cupping and other massage modalities are used to reduce or eliminate pain in fascia, muscles, ligaments, and tendon years of pain are slowly swept away leaving the client close to a point of living and movement prior to the injury.

What I love most about massage therapy is I have chosen a career that I love to the point that when you wake up in the morning ready and eager to go to work. Each client is a new and unique being that graces my massage table with their presence and at the end of each session I learn something new about history, science or their life that I did not know before. What I love most about my job is the same thing that I love when I perform relaxation as well as Orthopedic Massage is after the stress, reduction and elimination of pain that client falls asleep on my massage table.  Their sleep is not a light sleep but a deep contented sleep that only comes when all the stress and pain is gone and the body just melts and you loathe as a massage therapist to have to wake the client and have them turn over.  Shhh…. Sometimes I let them sleep and work other areas again.  To be honest this is the best feedback I can receive from a client is have them get on my table in pain and fall asleep when their pain is decreased or eliminated.  No words are necessary just the light to loud snores is the best feedback for me.

Vivian is an independent operator so don’t expect a reception/waiting area. Go a few minutes before and ignore the space and focus on her work.

I believe that a customer should be honored and listened to and receive the service (s)he paid for. This was supposed to be a relaxing Swedish massage; however, when Vivian found out I was having a muscle problem, she proceeded to do (what felt like) a very deep tissue massage. I told her she was hurting me, but she said that she needed to get to the root of the pain in order to help it. Well, it did not...it made it quite worse and even my doctor, with whom I had an appointment the next day, said I was badly SWOLLEN and TENDER to the touch. This was an excruciating experience that I hope I can prevent others from having. Vivian is a nice lady and I think she means well, but she needs to LISTEN to what her clients want and give them what they paid for. Sorry, but I have to be honest about my experience. I also noticed, by the way, that ANY reference to reviews about this business is non-existent and the website is as well. This "tells" me something.

She is amazing. Best massage I have had in ages. I am a little sore, but for me it is a sign that she got down deep into the tissues and got my knots out.
