Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Annie is the best hands down. I look forward to my appointment each month!

    Everything was wonderful, a very peaceful and relaxing setting, very skilled therapist that helps relax overworked muscles, she is very good at finding the "troubled" spots and making them go away. Visits to Annie will become a regular occurance. This is coming from a Plumber, someone who is constantly moving and lifting heavy objects, getting in awkward spots and positions . Doing many things my aging body shouldn't do anymore.

  • Outstanding, easily the best massage I've ever received. Will be visiting regularly.

    Annie always makes my experience specific to my needs that day and how my body feels.

  • Annie seems to know exactly how to find my tightest knots. Other therapists I've had seem to need guidance, but Annie's hands just intuitively find the best areas to work. I think she's magical.

    Very, very pleased with every aspect. Appreciated Annie's focus on my specific problems, and I am going back in a week to enjoy her expertise and work again on my physical issues.

  • This was such an amazing experience. I plan to go to Annie on a regular schedule from now on. She was so kind, helpful, and very knowledgeable! I am so happy that we made the decision to start going to Annie!

    I appreciate the care and talking me through everything, thank you very much

  • Awesome, consistently provides excellent service!

    She always knows how to read what my muscles need

Annie always makes sure to ask each time if there is anything new happening that needs to be worked on. She is very concerned about using the right pressure which is important to me. I’ve had massage most of my life. Really good massages are not that easy to find. She is wonderful!

I love Annie! She listens to my needs and pairs that with her knowledge of the body to make each massage personalized. She asks questions and keeps open communication during the massage to make sure pressure and problems areas are addressed in a way I'm comfortable. I also like that she works on deep tissue, facia , and stretching. I would recommend everyone to see her.

Absolutely wonderful knowledgeable massage therapist. I can’t say enough good things about Annie. With my last massage and as they always are my experience was amazing. Every session she’s interested in knowing what I feel needs to be worked on & will focus on those spots. Yet still thorough enough that she always finds things I wasn’t aware needed worked on. When she does this she’s flexible in her plan & still touches on those spots too. Wonderful set up & I really enjoy the music that she plays!

Annie was very intentional and it’s the location and pressure. She communicated with me so we both had an idea of what the goals were. I made my next apppointment before I left!

Went in to target a hip irritation need and upper back and shoulder mobility side affects from herniated cervical disks. My hip immediately felt better and still does a week later ! The muscular back tightness and shoulder mobility were improved following the appointment. This is the 2nd time I've seen Annie and would highly recommend her for her professionalism and outcomes I've experienced from my 2 appointments.

I highly recommend Annie if you are seeking a massage therapist! I recieved a 90 minute massage from Annie that was everything I hoped it to be and more. Annie listened to my words before we started and made sure she addressed all of the areas I spoke of and even found problematic areas I didn't even realize were there...but they were. The massage room is beautiful, warm and comforting. The use of warm heating pads and towels at different times added a special care to my treatment. The entire massage facility is calming and beautiful. Easy location to find with both metered parking directly in front of business and free parking just a half block away. Give yourself a 60 or 90 minute massage with Annie...you'll thank yourself that you did.

My most recent trip to see Ms. Pelka was absolutely stellar. I would say she has magical hands, but that would not do her justice. So instead, I will say that her extensive knowledge of how the body works, the muscular system, and how to treat the whole person was impressive. She addressed my specific issue expertly and I will not hesitate to use her again. I give her my full recommendation!

I can hardly say enough good about Annie. She is incredibly easy to work with, accommodating and friendly but most importantly she is a fantastic massage therapist. Most therapists have a set routine they do each massage, maybe just focusing on a problem spot a few extra minutes. Annie will do whatever is most needed on a given day. I'm sure she would do a great whole body massage but she is amazing at focusing on problem areas, which is what she does for me. She seems to be the most educated and engaged therapist I've ever worked with. I can't recommend her highly enough.

It was a wonderful experience!! Annie not only helped me feel more relaxed that night, she also gave me some tips and stretches to help prevent some of my shoulder tension in the future. Definitely going to recommend this place!
