Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Very skilled and professional. Very good massage with attention to detail

    Really good massage....

  • Found the exact spot I needed to have worked on.

    Wonderful massage.

  • Laura diagnosed my muscle issues quickly and addressed them well during my session. I plan to signup for more.

    The massage itself was amazing. Laura did a phenomenal job working on all of my right places. It's not her fault; there wasn't much thought put into the facility itself, but the slamming of the door to the rec center was jarring and I wish that the door to the treatment room didn't open directly to the main hallway.

  • Laura did an amazing job! There was outside noise from fellow gym members but the massage was amazing and gave me more range of motion afterwards.

    Not always as warm, but nothing Laura can do to control HVAC!

  • Great massage! Will be back!

    Very good Massage and Laura was very pleasant! Massage was just as I requested, not real deep but some pressure!

Laura is very thoughtful in her approach and immediately puts you at ease. She will take the time to truly learn where any discomfort exists and will work with you to help resolve it.

Laura is very knowledgeable and skilled at massage therapy. She gets to know her clients and tailors the treatment to their needs. She is friendly and professional, and her demeanor puts a new client at ease immediately. It would be nice if the treatment room were located in a quieter area of the Center, but that will not deter me from scheduling more appointments with Laura.

The place need to be fix. It is so noisy Cold and the oils that she is using are really cheap She is not strong enough

Business response:

I apologize for the room, since it is located in the fitness center it is very basic and there are issues controlling noise and temp. After the pool season, the noise is considerably less. I only use Biotone Pure Touch Organics massage cream and Sacred Earth Botanicals organic massage lotion, never oil (cheap or otherwise) to prevent staining. I'm sorry you did not enjoy your massage, if you let me know more of what you are looking for I can refer you to a great LMT.

I had a good, relaxing, massage from Ms Garza. The massage was great. Only downside was the activity outside the massage room, though this was no fault of Ms Garza.

Did not care for the location of the massage. Very limited parking. Too noisy and busy with being near the pool and fitness center.

Laura is excellent. But the room is too cold. The facility should consider the comfort of a massage room ... I tense up if I am too cold.

Laura is very good and skilled in her profession. She has the credentials and certifications that made me feel very comfortable from my first visit. I intend to return regularly as her warm personality matches her therapeutic massage skills. It is great to have her available Kingstowne.

Laura is amazing. I had her come to my home so ambiance was on me. However, even then she brought music and provided aromatherapy with no extra cost. I recommend her highly!

I am dependent on massage therapy for pain management. Laura takes the time before and after the session to inquire about my needs and her massage techniques are effective. I rated the ambiance a little low due to the water stains on the ceiling that have been there for some time. I also think that dimming the light a bit during the session would be nice, especially when lying on the back.

Laura did a great job for the time that was allotted. Will consider going for either a longer session or focused area next time.
