Hanna did a great job!

Hanna is very present at all times and clearly has an intimate knowledge of human anatomy. Overall, the experience was blissful.

The experience is always so calm and healing. I couldn't think of another therapist I've enjoyed more.

Hanna is a caring and intuitive therapist. She took the time to inquire about my needs and expectations prior to the massage and made sure everything was touched upon. I would highly recommend her.

Fabulous experience with Hanna! She is professional, engaging, and takes the time to truly listen to her clients and tailor her treatment to meet their individual needs. I came away from the experience feeling like I was floating on a cloud. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.

Hanna gave me an incredible healing, which was badly needed after traveling in a car for the past month, and suffering from an injury.

I've been going to Hanna for a while now and have nothing but good things to say.

Hanna has a very grounded yet energetically uplifting practice. She has deep knowledge of the muscles, joints and tendons due to her extensive training through continuing ed courses. She takes this knowledge and synthesizes it into a treatment that combines deep tissue releases with a very relaxing and energetically rejuvenating strokes. I’ve been getting work done from Hanna for over three years now and as a fellow LMT I highly recommend seeking an appointment with her.
