This was wsyy more than a knead-your-body not-sure-that-helped experience. Grace activates muscles and finds the problem spots. This experience is about feeling better. Thanks Grace.

Learned even more about the interrelationship of various muscle groups. even those distant from each other. Relaxed atmosphere,. Can even laugh when the pressure points are being manipulated.

Grace did an excellent job. The space she uses is warm and inviting. Her knowledge of muscles, injuries, and what will be most beneficial to you if you're hurting is outstanding! Can also tell you why she's doing what she's doing. You won't regret making an appointment with her.

Had my first appointment with Grace this weekend and she was great! Took time to ask me questions about why I was there, how I had been feeling that day/week, what kind of pressure I prefer (I've received deep tissue massages regularly for several years) and general health. Her actual massage was really amazing. She was able to adjust her pressure based on my needs that day, I was recovering from the flu so knew not to go too deep and checked in with me about how I was feeling. She took her time to focus on my concern areas and utilized innovative techniques to get to tricky muscles. Thank you Grace! I'm officially a new regular.

Everything about the setup is professional. When you enter the outer office, Ms. Manning greets you as you walk into soothing atmosphere - the light are low and the room is filled with a wonderful fragrance. The therapy rooms are clean and the linens fresh. I would highly recommend her therapeutic skills.
