Darleen is a talented professional massage therapist. She takes the necessary time to get an update since the last massage. She has the ability to modify her massage techniques to fit what you need that day. I love the feel of the therapy room. Never feel rushed as you do in spa like environments. You're a person here and not a corporate number.
