Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Tranquil & comforting environment.

    I feel disappointed with my experience.

  • Beautiful facility!

    I felt wonderful afterwards because my body was correctly aligned during the massage. Anna’s knowledge and skills are phenomenal!

  • I highly recommend Annebritt to anyone seeking to restore optimal body alignment and posture, alleviate body aches and pains, and release myo-facial tension. Annebritt is definitely not your average "massage therapist". Her vast knowledge of how the body functions, moves and integrates as a system is unsurpassed. She is brilliant at listening and observing what each individual client is in need of in order to work towards wellness.

    I would tell a friend that Annebritt is a a bright and talented therapist. Specifically, I would say that she is someone you can schedule for a luxurious "treat" massage or someone that you can schedule if you need advice and treatment for a muscle problem or injury. I have visited her for both types of treatment and will happily visit again.

  • Anna listens and remembers and works with where I am and does wonders!

    After working with Anne, I was became very optimistic to significantly reduce all the tension in my neck, upper back and shoulders.

  • Every precaution taken for the current situation, very professional, excellent skills and knowledge.

    Anna is great and brings all her gifts to my health improvement.

by Debbie on Oct 19
I felt very comfortable and trusting of her ability to release and move the fluid that had stagnated. She was very informative as to what she was going to do, and boy, did she do it well. I felt I was in the presence of a very skilled and knowledgeable professional with experience in this field of massage therapy.

I love everything that was done, realignment especially!
by Westin on Jul 25
She’s very patient and good about privacy. Very vocal and was good about letting me know what to expect.

Anna is a conscientious, skilled, & intuitive practitioner. She is the primary reason I can maintain a normal work and social life by managing & relieving my nerve & arthritic back/hip pain. I don't know how I would work without her care.
by JoAnne on Jun 14
It’s very hard to put into words what she did to relieve the pain I have and my shoulder. I like it that if one thing doesn’t work she has so many options and she tried a lot of them and when I left I felt much much better.
by Renee on Jun 14
I appreciate everything about Anna's style and approach in expertly addressing what my body needs and addressing it with her incredible wisdom and intuitive trust. I'm so joyfully grateful for you, Anna!

Annebritt is the most skilled therapist that I have ever used. She pays attention to specific issues. I feel like every time I leave a therapy session I have learned something new. I feel like Annebritt does her research on how to resolve my issues.
by Cassia on Apr 04
Anna is the best massage therapist I have ever worked with, period. Highly recommended!
by Mary on Apr 03
She uses multiple modalities ...cups, massage, and a heated a heated neck pillow, and more...to free my body from its imbalances.
by Jay on Mar 31
Annebritt was a consummate professional, quickly understood my needs and addressed them without a misstep. Most effective therapeutic massage I have received since moving to North Carolina. She is amazing!

Had constant communication with me to make sure I was comfortable.

Overall good massage. Johnny is a nice guy and has a great technique. Communicates well.
by Sallie on Jul 14
Johnny was attentive, professional and knowledgeable. I came in feeling battered and fatigued after a long weekend tournament, and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. I'll be booking with him again soon!
by Lynn on Jun 16
Johnny helped release my tight hips and calves - I was like a new woman when I got off the table. He's very knowledgable and tuned in - exactly what I needed today!
by Carrie on Jun 13
Johnny is an excellent massage therapist. He listens to your requests and will focus on the areas that need attention. He is very professional and highly skilled. I definitely recommend experiencing a massage with him.
by Anonymous on May 10
Johnny is extremely professional and highly skilled. He was attentive, listened to my requests, correctly assessed where my body was tense/overworked and adept at applying the right pressure where it was needed. The atmosphere was perfect and my body felt totally rejuvenated! I will definitely request an appointment with Johnny again! Highly recommend!

I came in with back spasms and left without it! Yay! She works magic. Annebritt offers more than relaxation she works to help your underlying structure function in better alignment. Go see her if you have chronic pain.

Anna is a very skilled knowledgeable massage therapist. I have had neck issues that took me to a chiropractor for 25 years and now I hardly need to see one. With the combination of fascia release and trigger points relaxation. She is very compassionate and caring, I highly recommend her.

If I could give Annebritt 100 stars I would! The pain relief she gives me is amazing. I have never been to a therapist who is so in tune with exactly what is happening with my body. She is fully committed to finding just what works for each persons body to give them to best experience and pain relief possible. She is kind and caring and extremely professional.
