REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Mari on Sep 16
A masseuse who is also a RN. She is highly intelligent and knows how to treat. Highly recommended.
by Angie on Sep 15
Virginia makes me feel comfortable & forget about the stresses of the day. She always "finds" & gets the knots out. If I come in with a tension headache, she's usually able to get rid of it within a few minutes for me. I've been to many massage therapists over the last 30 years & she's one of the very best!
by Amanda on Sep 04
Her massage technique, her knowledge of the human body, and her attention to my level of comfort are exceptional.

Finds spots I didn't know about. Glad the VA finally stepped up and approved medical massage as I do not like medicine. Ms. Virginia is very patient with my PTSD all well understanding of all my medical conditions as well.
