REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Chad on Apr 10
My massage therapy with Tina was wonderful. It was warm, personable and effective. A session with Tina is unique because, instead of feeling as you are only being worked "on", it feels like you are working "together" to relieve tightness and aches. She has helped reduce my physical pain, and also reached me on an emotional level that has soothed my mind as well as my muscles......

It was fabulous, will definitely be returning. I loved that Tina really focused on my trouble spots and provided information along the way.

Tina listened carefully to what I told her about myself and then went straight to my body areas of focus, to exactly the right spots and worked in a deeper way with them than I had experienced previously with anyone else

Tina is very caring and skilled. She is the best massage therapist I have ever worked with, and my health always improves after a session with her.

I was really happy with the massage. She focused on the areas that needed work and checked in regularly to make sure she was still focusing on what I wanted. Afterwards, my body felt great and she even gave a few suggestions on potentially avoiding future stress & pain in those areas.

All very well done. Tina is VERY skilled at what she does. She does very connecting with overall and keeping on task and professional along the way. Focused on what it takes to get to the source of an issue. Best Massage Therapist I've ever worked with. I've worked with many, Most of whom I would not return. Skill, knowledge, strength along with the hard work ethic it takes to get the improvement needed. I get the feeling she can handle the lite work as well, if that is what you prefer. Highest recommendation I'm able to give. If you want results, work with Tina.

My treatment didn't just feel like any message. It was a medical treatment for my injured neck. Tina has excellent skills, touch, and anatomical knowledge. She was able to release the muscles around my neck, shoulders, and upper back. I thoroughly enjoyed my treatment and left feeling a lot better
