Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Very professional and great massage! Loved the detailed questions at the beginning to determine best approach to today's needs.

    Great atmosphere for a healing and therapeutic type of massage. The use of essential oils, lotions, and creams were just what I needed to give myself the time and space to relax. Denise is very good at pinpointing my trouble spots, and doesn't overdo the hurt-so-good sensation. For me personally, it is easy to fall asleep during her sessions because of the lighting, music, and heated table. She is also very knowledgeable in the anatomy and lifestyle activities that lead to imbalances in the body. Thank you Denise!

  • The minute you walk through the door, Denise makes you feel like you are her only client. Her attention to your well-being is her primary goal. Her assessment of how you are feeling is done in a comfortable, conversational manner. It is then translated into a massage that is well thought out and customized just for you. You will never get the same thing twice, making each massage special each time you receive one.

    Very nice massage, she is professional polite and provided me with exactly the relaxing experience I was looking for.

  • I don't have any prior experience to compare it to, but Denise was incredibly open to working with my specific needs and goals, as well as understanding the importance of feeling safe and in control for someone who has experienced prior trauma. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone else who has a trauma history.

    As always, an amazing experience.

  • Denise has the ability to focus on specific needs which may vary session to session, without sacrificing the overall body massage which is the foundation of a wonderful experience.

    Felt relaxed and looking forward to next session

  • Denice's explanations of her techniques and her questions for me helped clarify what the massage would entail. The massage was very relaxing and when she hit points that were painful she successfully worked on them to provide relief.

    Denise is amazing and always very professional.

Denise took the time to customize a session that was perfect for me. I don't like to remove my clothes and she altered her usual routine to accommodate me with the utmost care and understanding. Her massage and Reiki combination brought deep healing to me both physically and emotionally. It was a truly profound experience!

Healing happens when a place of trauma or pain is given full attention. Denise is a healer with wholehearted presence, conscious healing intention and trust in the healing partnership. I feel her deep sense of humility and gratitude as she works with me. She supports mind-body-spirit connection with her massage therapy practice. She meets you where you are.

Denise is very in tune with what I need in the moment and very aware of how my body is responding during the massage. This time, we were catching up with each other, so I was talking a lot, but when I know I need to fully absorb the effects of the massage, I will be quiet. The only friendly critique I would give (just being a little nit-picky) was there were some strokes that were a bit fast during the session, that didn't quite seem to relax me, which was what I was mostly looking for. However, that is not to say the whole massage wasn't great. I booked a next longer appointment so I could fully enjoy it. She's doing a great job.

Denise is personable and establishes a rapport with her client before commencing the massage (this did not cut into the actual massage time). The pressure (firm) was perfect. I was sorry when the session came to an end.

As always, Denise is the remedy to feeling better. From the moment you arrive she makes you feel like you are her only client of the day. Calm, spiritual, soft spoken are some of the attributes of Denise. Along with her skill and expertise as a massage therapist, you leave her beautiful space with a sense of well-being and comfort. Denise is very accommodating with her schedule, and most times can get you in for an appointment at the last minute. But if you are smart, you will make your next appointment while you are there enjoying the effects of your massage. That way you have something to look forward to!

Amazing is perhaps not strong enough of a word. A well done meal is amazing - what Denise can do is several orders of magnitude above. It still awes me how Denise's skills can have such a dramatic impact after a single session. After going a round with a round with a flare up of spinal stenosis, my back was one massive knot of muscles that seemed to be working against each other. One hour on the table and the change was dramatic - both physically and mentally. This was also not a temporary improvement. I am writing this review six days after the treatment and I am pleased to report that the treatment has persisted.

Her work was also exceptional. I never felt rushed during the session. She really knows how to address all your specific needs. I would say that it was one of the best massages ever.

Denise gave me lots of time to discuss my physical issues and showed she had a good understanding of my problems and ways to treat them. I found her very friendly and sympathetic, and willing to offer advice and recommendations for using other therapists. She also worked on my scalp and ears as well as my jaw area, something I would highly recommend. She tried an aromatic oil that I found too distracting and switched to one that worked much better for me as soon as I said something. I'm not sure about the cause, other than there were several places on my upper left back area that were very sensitive during the massage, however, after the massage I noticed some pain in the front of my left shoulder that became more intense and continued overnight. It did dissipate during the next day but I was surprised by it because I have the majority of my issues on the right side. Ah, the mysteries of the human body!

There is SO much to love about a Denise Graybeal massage, and nothing to dislike. She is truly interested in her clients and the issues that bring them to her table. Discussion before and after the massage address these and any other concerns. Denise is a master of her craft; she has "magic hands" that ease body pain and tension. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a massage therapist. When I went to my most recent appointment, I had a persistent and uncomfortable cramp in my left hamstring; she was able to work it out and I left with no pain in my left side. 24 hours later, the pain has not returned at all. She is terrificQ

Denise takes the time to find out what your life has been like so she can individualize the treatment to you. Adjusting the amount of pressure to how you are feeling that day, finding out the aromas you prefer, and even down to the type of music you like. All these things combined make for an experience that can only be described as amazing. You leave with a peaceful feeling of relaxation, and the realization that this experience is something that must become a routine in your life.
