Lauren is amazing! Hands down the best massage I’ve ever gotten. I think she’s really going to be able to help get my migraines under control. Highly recommend!

Amazing experience.

Lauren is an exceptional massage therapist. I refuse to go anywhere else. She knows the right pressure to use to remove all the knots in my back. I always walk out very relaxed. Look no further if you need a deep tissue massage.

Great massage! Loved Lauren, she seemed very skilled and knowledgeable. Will be coming back.

The entire visit exceeded expectations. I went to my appointment for a muscle strain to be taken care of, but left with all my muscles and my posture improved. I’m always seeking a massage therapist with firm pressure and it usually ends up with the wind knocked out of me during sessions, but not this time. Can’t wait to go again for another session!

Phenomenal deep tissue. If you're looking for a great deep tissue teetering on the edge of pain, Lauren is the right masseuse. Great communication, pressure, and ambiance.

I love Lauren, she's good at what she does. She's helped me so much with my lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. She's so kind, always happy and welcoming. Lauren is the only message therapist i trust.
