Marion's space is crisp and calm with a variety of indulgences such as heated massage table and luxurious scents. She treated me with such careful attention and the right balance of firm and gentle pressure for a 90 minute full body massage followed by a 30 minute facial. Her particular approach relieved so much tension and had a theraputic effect as well as had me drifting in and out of a quiet nap from time to time. I felt like I had been pampered all day. The facial went through several steps, each one soothing and sometimes with measured stimulus that left me feeling clean and refreshed. I am definitely going back and would recommend Marion to all types of people--those interested in therapeutic massage, relaxation, or just pampering. She delivers it all. Thank you, Marion, for introducing yourself though complimentary chair massage at Gold's Gym. I'm so glad to have discovered you!

Amazing , knowledgeable, experienced. Went in for a lymphatic drainage massage. Went to a couple of different places and hands down this is the best place you can go! I had liposuction and I was filled with fluid. I thought it was going to be painful like my other lymphatic massages but to my surprise it was the best lymphatic drainage massage. Of course your sore but it’s not suppose to be painful!! I’ve felt better and better each time that I went. Would highly recommend!! Makes sure that your relaxed and comfortable. Will definitely be going back to finish all my massages !!! Thank you so much !!

Marion is amazing!! I was nervous because I’d never had a lymphatic drainage massage and didn’t know what to expect but she made me feel so at ease and talked me through each step of the massage. I also had some deep tissue massage done and she kept making sure I was ok because of my health issues. She’s very easy to talk to and really wants to help people feel better. I came away from the experience well informed and I look forward to my next appointment. She gained a new regular client ????

Hands down, this was THE BEST massage I have ever gotten. I had been having trouble with headaches and pain between my shoulder blades and in my neck. I felt better IMMEDIATELY and results lasted for weeks! Marion showed me pressure points to relieve the headaches even though I haven't had nearly as many since the massage. My only regret is not getting back to her sooner!

I was extremely sceptical prior to my appt. Ms Kersting visit was extronerdary. After approx 15 mins speaking with her, I felt very comfortable. The office is welcoming and offers serenity during your visits. She focuses on you as a person and caters your visits to your specific needs followed by her professional recommendations. I invite everyone to employ her services and embark on a memorable experience.

And a skeptical person by nature when it comes to massage therapy, but I am glad I went to Marion Kersting for the edema in my lower legs. She is an LMT CLT, & I can honestly say she is excellent in her technique and professionalism. Ms Kersting pays attention to her clients. I would give more than 5 stars if I could.

Marion is the best massage therapist I have ever had. She works wonders on my lymph system. Don't spend another day in pain or discomfort. Book now with Marion!

Mrs. Kersting has just the right touch when it comes to the lymphatic drainage massages. I felt so tender to touch to my abdomen and back that I was scared to touch my own skin. But, as soon as she began her treatment, I felt instant relief! Lol. The entire session felt soooooooo good! Even afterwards, I was able to go home and apply my foams and board for the first time under my compression garment. I can hardly wait for my next session! My body is highly appreciative of your services. Thanks! A++, and I am not kidding!
