Love the way she can find all my trouble spots and relieve my pain! Been going every 2 weeks for 3 years! She keeps me pain free! I still work physically hard at 60 years old and wouldn't be able to keep going without her! Best massage person I ever met!

Verve' Massage & Spa Services has an excellent atmosphere for healing. Soothing music and healing scents meet you at the door! My favorite "stress away" massage is a Therapeutic Massage with Hot Stones. Shirley is hands on for the entire session and always professional! Aromatic Foot Sauna is next on the list!

Shirley is a the most gifted LMT that I have ever met. I have been receiving massages monthly for years at another spa. I was introduced to Shirley when a colleague had her come to my workplace for chair massages. I booked a 75 minute session with Shirley a week later, and I plan to go to her exclusively from now on. She does REAL deep tissue massage, gets in deep where it is needed, but also intuitively knows where and when to decrease the pressure. I left rejuvenated and feeling like I could conquer ANYTHING! Healed in body, mind and spirit. Love and Light to you, Shirley!!

Shirley is the best massage therapist I've had. She is the consummate professional, a caring individual and a highly skilled therapist. Her suite is lovely and relaxing. She takes the time to go over your concerns and problems areas, and she takes clinical notes to remember the problems for next time. She found spots where I did not know I was knotty or tight until she worked on them. I already booked a follow-up. She's just fabulous. I highly recommend her!

Five stars isn't enough. I can describe Shirley Wroten's massages in three words: SIMPLY THE BEST. Her technical skills rise to the level of artistry. I've had chronic lower back issues for several years, Shirley has eliminated them and, in doing so, has improved my overall quality of life. I highly recommend her and encourage all who are considering massage therapy to give her a try. I GUARANTEE you will return many times.

Shirley has magical hands. I was experiencing chronic muscle pain in my upper shoulders and back. Shirley massaged out the knots and tension. She told me to drink lots of water, and take a Tylenol if I became sore the next day. Three weeks later I am still pain free.

I can't say enough good things about my experience. From the moment I walked in until the moment I left it was a relaxing and comfortable experience, as well as a very good massage.

Shirley is nice and easy to talk to. She gave me a great massage, really getting into all those knots and tight spots I've accumulated from being at a computer all day for years. She also gave me a fantastic scalp massage and a relaxing foot scrub. I left on cloud 9!

The massage room was very relaxing and comfortable. The massage table was heated which was a nice bonus. I thought Shirley was very friendly and she gave me a great massage.

Shirley was extremely helpful assisting me navigating through Amazon Local and her website to accommodate an expedited appointment for me. Shirley even offered to come in same day in the evening to assist me. When I received my treatment, she was professional, knowledgeable, and very skilled. She freed up some very tight muscles that have been limiting my range of motion in my arms for several months.

Verve' is my favorite place to go, to relieve my stress and pain. She does a Swedish massage that was therapeutic and relaxing. When I first walked in, I felt instantly calm. I was greeted with a welcoming smile, and a pleasant aroma. Her massage techniques was absolutely wonderful. Nothing bothered me, after that. Shirley your massage & spa is the best, I've been to.

Shirley's Massage service is second to none as she takes massage therapy to a whole new level.I personally have seen dozens of different therapist over the years and,and by far she is the best out of ALL.First,her studio is clean,friendly,inviting,well decorated,calm,serene and very relaxing.Shirley has a great personality and sense of humor,but takes her profession very seriously. You tell her of some troubled areas and she caters to what you need and want perfectly.You walk in tense and sore,and you are right from the start you feel relaxed and thoughout you are laying on a bed of clouds.It is like she is waving a magic wand ! By the end of the session you feel great,and you leave just thinking about how you can't wait till your next session with her !

What is there not to like? Perhaps, the question should read...Can Shirley be cloned as my future Massage Therapist--in the event I should move? She goes beyond the call of duty. I travel over 30 minutes to have a session with Shirley--for me that's amazing. Need I say more. If you haven't had a massage with Shirley, please do your mind, body and soul a tremendous benefit and see her asap. The benefits are too numerous to mention all: Physiologic Effects, such as an increase in lymphatic and venous circultio, prevents excessive scar formation, stimulates in atrophy--sprains, strains, muscle cramps--even n
