About Us

I'm now located at the Boudreau Salon and Boutique at 1208 New Louden Rd, Cohoes, NY. South of Troy Landscaping. I have a nice and calming room at the end of the hallway where you can relax and release pain, stiffness and emotions. 

I believe that a person needs to heal from within for any pain they may be suffering from. I assist you in choosing the best plan to begin with when it comes to massage therapy. Many clients see me on a weekly or monthly basis depending on their needs.

We are by appointment only office, so please call us at 518-378-6311 for availability.

Thank you!

Wendy continues to be my go-to therapist as I consistently find myself benefitting from her massages for days and weeks. While she can keep massage benefits to just physical results, I always realize a mind/body/spirit healing. Thanks Wendy!

Wendy you are a beautiful addition to my story and I hope I am to yours. I am very thankful for what we talked about in the last session. It is not a very easy thing to try and start to heal parts of you that you have a hard time even connecting with. But I feel that you have given me a nudge in the right direction and I thank you for your assistance.

What can I say? I so needed this wonderful massage. I felt so relaxed afterwards and areas of my body that were tense were relaxed. That night I slept like a baby. Wendy knows what areas need the most attention and her hands have 'magic' in them. I loved the hot stones as the heat from them reached deep into my muscles. Thank you Wendy...
