Loved it!
by Michael on Mar 15
I woke with an incredible pain in my shoulder. Sharita was able to see me within 24 hours and the massage lessoned my pain considerably! I'm convinced the source of the pain was a pinched nerve, so some symptoms remain, but the difference between before and after incredible. I'm confidant I'm on the path to total recovery.

Convenient location in our area. Booked because it was close and had good reviews online. Now we will be using this location regularly. My boyfriend has suffered from back pain for over 15 yrs and massage gives him relief for a few days. He said sharitadid a great job and he is ready to go back soon.

I was hoping for a deep massage...:!that is not what I got.... I was better off going to the mall

Business response:

I'm sorry that you were not pleased with your massage. You said that you did not get the deep tissue pressure that you wanted. On your intake form you listed contraindications for deep pressure, therefore I would be required to use caution for deep pressure. I hope you find a therapist that will meet your needs.

Sharita is the best. She takes the time to listen to you so she can know what you really need out of massage. She has a gentle but firm touch, which I think is perfect. I have a lot of upper and lower back problems. She is usually the only way I can get relief. She has even suggested things I can do at home to relieve pain. I think she's awesome and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
