Cutest, most comfy set up! From the cozy sitting room with all the fluffy pillows & fire place to the relaxing yoga room and finally the spacious massage room. I am always so relaxed as she makes me a warm cup of tea before sending me on my way. My appointments always seem so short because I never want it to end!! So many special touches and every massage/facial is tailored to how I feel and what I might need on that day.

Getting a massage from Lisa is more than a massage - it’s a physical therapy session. She is so good at reading what your body needs and adjusting what she is doing accordingly. I’ve tried lots of different massage places in the area and she is (in my opinion) by far the best! Plus, this last time she worked my husband and I into her schedule very last minute. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
