REVIEWS for my Pilates, Bodywork, or Fitness services

A hot pack was placed at my back and the therapist left the room for approximately 10-15mins and it reached to the point that I felt so hot and I removed the hot pack.When she came back no words of apology which in fact I informed her that I removed the hot pack because it was too hot. Overall, the massage was not good at all and 75mins session was not completed.

Sara is the best!

I didn't realize that my package would expire. I am still confused about why I needed to have a card to scan and what would have happened if I lost it. Last, it was difficult to get into contact. (I didn't know if I should be going through the massagebook system or e-mailing.) Those administrative details aside, it was a great experience for my body. I always felt great walking out of there!

Good attention to the overall problem in a broader context. Specific pain not fixed immediately. A feeling of some emphasis on a bit of "marketing". Overall positive.

Sara is amazing: she finds all of the problem spots and meticulously works on them until we see a clear resolution.
