REVIEWS for my Aromatherapy or Bodywork services

All good things must come to an end!
by Lisa on Apr 02
Dawn is amazing! She asks very specific questions before your session on how you are feeling and areas of complaint. She targets areas ou identify and yet always seems to find areas you don’t realize are restricted.
