Very calming environment; beautiful, clean, space. Elya is extremely professional, always asking if her technique is working for the client. She also offers advise re: health issues, if one asks. Her messages have had a positive effect on my well-being.

I was shaken by that auto accident and I had a bad cold. After the massage, I could breathe better, My body had let go of the stress of the accident and I felt better. The following day when I woke, my cold was resolving itself. I was a bit under the weather from the auto caused trauma as well as my now resolving viral infection. Sunday was a brighter new day. Thank you Elya. Kathy

I really enjoy the whole experience. I have had many massages around the USA. I always leave AMA feeling great and a "lost bit of time" that seemed a lot shorter than the time I was there. I would highly recommend this for anyone, if only to reduce stress or as a gift to yourself. :)

This was an outstanding massage treatment. My massage felt uniquely attentive to my body and its vulnerabilities. It conveyed caring, clear and excellently pressured attention - and felt in depth and wonderfully supportive to my muscular uncertainties, discomforts - and my spirit! The ambiance is relaxing and kind and beautiful, and the practitioner highly skilled, incorporating excellent reflexology into the overall treatment. I am really pleased to have been directed to this practice.

The space is quiet, comfortable and cozy. There is lovely music, fish tank that bubbles soothingly (for fish too I hope) , candles burning, etc. Also, there is a water cooler, Kleenex, and other necessary items within arms reach. There is a clean bathroom adjacent to the massage room. There is ample parking. Karen allows plenty of time for your appointment, and you never feel rushed. She is extremely knowledgeable about massage and the body in general.

I highly recommend Karen. She is a caring soul that wants to heal your body and not just provide a service. I have never experienced a massage that was so therapeutic. Each time I leave, I have more flexibility, mobility and energy, as well as less anxiety. I now will make massage with Karen part of my health and wellness plan. Karen is a "healer"!

I have had back, hip, knee etc. pain for many years and have been to massage to help manage this pain. In the past, massage felt good and reduced some pain but the effect was brief. Karen works miracles! She increased my range of motion and I can feel my body/ posture etc change after she works on me. She is truly amazing, and I highly recommend her, whether you experience chronic pain, as I do, or just want a massage with someone who is fully devoted to making YOU feel great! .
