REVIEWS for my Yoga or Bodywork services

by Lynne on Dec 20
My massage was wonderful, Carolyn! Just what I asked for. Very in tune to my requests and making sure pressure was appropriate. Thank you:)

I am a cyclist and I do weight training at least 3 times a week, and I am old and have had back pain issues since my 20's. I am extremely pleased with Carolyn's work on my many issues. I tend to overdo it when I exercise and she has the skill and the patience to help me work out the stiffness and soreness I often inflict on myself.The is generous with some very useful suggestions on how to improve my fitness and how to avoid developing bad exercise habits. Most importantly, I have a particular problem with my upper back that started 10 years ago. I have been to MD's, chiropractors, physical therapists, and voodoo practitioners in an effort to relieve the pain with little success. The massage techniques that Carolyn uses has solved the problem. I am forever grateful to her for her work in keeping me pain-free.

Carolyn is highly skilled, friendly and professional. She's also very sensitive to the client and ensures that you are comfortable throughout the treatment. If you're looking for a truly excellent massage therapist with a thorough knowledge of anatomy and the musculoskeletal functioning of the body look no further. You won't be disappointed!

I loved that she was so knowledgeable and how she seemed to know exactly the target areas I needed to have worked on. After the massage she went over ways for me to work on my hip at home. I booked another massage for next month.

Carolyn has been a grounding person for me. Her knowledge is fundamentally sound. She can fix the aches and pains physically as well mentally. She listens and evaluates. I appreciate her thoroughness.

Carolyn saw me in an emergency situation of severe hip spasms. She knew how to dig in and find the problem spots. Loved being treated by her.
