REVIEWS for my Skincare, Bodywork, or Meditation services

Felt great after treatment! Thank you Tina
by Gillian on Aug 20
I am always amazed at how Tina can intuitively find my trouble spots and treat them (sometimes ones I don't even know about, until she works on them!)--She has alleviated very difficult back pain for me--it feels like magic, but I know that her tremendous grounding and knowledge in her field, joined with her sensitivity, allows her to be the gifted healer she is!

Great overall experience - working on stress points and overall soreness.
by Pati on Jul 23
Simply amazing technique, knowledge and touch

Tina does an amazing job of finding the painful spots and resolving pain. It's helpful the way she works with breath awareness. I receive a blend of deeply relaxing massage work and extremely specific deep tissue massage, active and passive stretches to really open my body up. She is a very skilled massage therapist and I'm so grateful I've found her!!!

Tina is amazing! She understood my needs and was very knowledgeable and not only provided me with an excellent massage she gave me some tips and exercises to do at home. She is personable, professional and her environment is warm and welcoming! I highly recommend her!

I was impressed by Tina's knowledge, skills and care she gave me. After only one session, I slept soundly for entire night for the first time in weeks ( I could not sleep because of my lower back aches and tight muscles ) My entire body feels brand new" today, pain and stiffness of lower back, back and shoulders are gone. She is a miracle worker. If you have been suffering from back ache, don't wait any longer, go to Tina!
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......
