Dawn is the best! She always finds the source of my discomfort, and takes away the pain. Plus, she's a wonderful, caring person. I recommend her highly!
by Paula on Mar 03
Dawn is more than a massage therapist, she is an intuitive practioner. She is the best massage therapist I have ever gone to. Make the trip to Athol, go a little further for the best.
