After having a tummy tuck and lipo, I was left with pain, bruising and swelling. After only 2 sessions, Tarja really helped improve my pain and swelling. She is knowledgeable and compassionate. Her skills in lymphatic drainage massage are excellent. Right after each massage, I feel lighter and can stand straighter. I am looking forward to my next treatment. I feel like the care that Tarja offers for lipo recovery is so important for feeling better quickly and preventing adverse affects related to lymphatic system trauma. If you had lipo, get in and see her. Her lymphatic drainage massage really helps!

Tarja seems like a good choice if you have one specific area that you need her to work on. Do not go to her for an overall massage. She pushed so hard on my knots that I had to stop her many times, and in multiple areas. And, 3 days later and I'm still in lots of pain in all the areas that she worked on. It's way too painful and did more harm than good.

Business response:

I ask many times if you are comfortable with the pressure I assume is needed. Couple days of soreness is normal after deep tissue massage. Please do not book a "Deep Tissue Massage" if you have a medical condition with nerves, or very low tolerance. The pressure is adjusted according to response from client. My youngest happy client is 7, and oldest 94.

Fantastic massage! It was exactly what I was looking for, calm atmosphere, extremely knowledgeable and professional person. Such attention to each individual muscle, and not a 'spa type' session. This is perfect for athletes, hard workers, and especially...tattoo artists! (which is my field) Definitely will be back!

Tarja is very professional. There was very calming music playing in the background. The temperature was just right. I was her 5th client for the day and she still had enough strength to provide me with an amazing Swedish Massage. Two days later and I am still feeling some of my sore spots. Tarja also went above and beyond by sending me some videos that I could use to stretch my gluts on my own time. Can't wait for my next appointment.

My experience was great. It was the best massage I've ever had. Would have appreciated a darker setting with calmer music and less conversation, but I will definitely be back.

Business response:

Most likely a Clinical Deep Tissue Massage at AMMC will not resemble your loveliest relaxation experience at a Spa in candle light, but a Medical Massage Clinic. If your first appointment is 50 minute Deep Tissue Massage With Consultation, there will be also many things to talk about. Dim lights are required for observation of the skin color, health, and response to Deep Tissue Massage. We have 60 minute Swedish massage for more relaxing experience.

Thank you Barbara, for your feedback. When there are any musculo-sceletal issues going on, Deep Tissue Massage can feel a bit intense. Couple days of muscle soreness, like after exercise, is common afterwards. When issues start to resolve, Deep Tissue Massage is not painful. Of Course always express your feelings regarding to intensity of the pressure. Too much of a good thing is not so good. :) ~Tarja Anchor

Therapeutic level of massage, not merely relaxing. I have had several injuries over the years. Tarjas treatments have given me more relief from the pain and more mobility than any chiropractor or other therapists. Her level of skill goes way beyond the norm for American therapists.

Always a great real deep tissue massage with focus on the areas of most need most. Great stress relief and stretching so that I am more limber and have more range of motion than in years - MUCH better than traditional PT or going to a physician!! Taja is very knowledgable and skilled in holistic healing and does a great job with a deep tissue massage, stretching and manipulating my sore shoulder and neck so that I have a much better range of motion and less pain. She also offers advice for nutrition and vitamins that have been terrific. I make it a point to have my appointment weekly.
