Tina is very sweet. She has a calming style while still being physical enough to do some real work with stiff muscles and problem areas. Great experience. Will do it again!

Tina is both professional and personable. She catered to my personal issues and worked with me to address them, creating an atmosphere of openness through which we could feel out what I needed from the session. She is very skilled at massage and intuitively felt into my body to dig deep and unwind some of the knots and tension in my back. I haven't gotten very many massages in the past, but I'm now a believer thanks to Tina.

I love getting massages from Tina. She is very focused and mindful of what I'm needing and what areas I need work on. The ambiance is very nurturing and loving. Tina is very good at holding space for you to be in whatever state you find yourself in be it sadness, joy, anger etc. A session with Tina is very healing and nurturing. I highly recommend a session with her.

I got a very nice massage with Tina for the first time. She worked out some very tight muscles I had in my neck and shoulders. Her technique was so gentle and soothing. I will defiantly be coming back.

I liked that you were responsive to what I needed that particular day, and that you expanded your therapy once you saw that my body could handle it. Outstanding!

Tina has a solid, strong, deep touch that melted my tension away. She has a flowing style that made me feel I was being massaged by the ocean. As a massage therapist myself, I've had a lot of massages, and my massage from Tina was one of the best massages I've had. I highly recommend her.

Tina is a gifted massage therapist. Her knowledge and experience is skillfully applied to meet each person's individual needs. I drive over 50 miles one way to Boulder for my appointments because Tina is the best message therapist I have found and is incredibly effective at resolving my pain issues.

Tina is great. She commucated well before and during the massage. Working with my body, she was soft but strong. Using her skills in multiple massage modalities, she worked with each body part as needed to release stored tension. I will be going to her again.

Opened up long-standing areas of pain and tightness that have not moved for years. Held the space for both emotional and physical transformation. Tina truly holds the space and facilitates deep relaxation, release, and change!

Tina's knowledge of the body really surprised me. I went in expecting a nice 90 minute relaxing massage and ended up getting a two hour physical therapy session, which was exactly what I needed, and Tina figured this out within ten minutes. The result was the most beneficial massage I've ever gotten in my life...by far. On top of all this Tina has a soothing presence, a kind, approachable soul, and a beautiful voice. Her office space was welcoming and tranquil as well.
