Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great environment

    Friendly professional staff and a relaxing atmosphere.

  • Two years ago, I had my meniscus removed from my left knee. Prior to and for two years thereafter, I have shuffled from four different surgeons, leg compression pumps had wrapping therapy (to the knee not the whole leg) and have been left with a plastic surgeon who wants to do some serious surgery. No way! I found Sharon via google. I went in for a consultation feeling somewhat skeptical. After meeting her staff, seeing her facilities as well as how I was treated, I felt at ease. Sharon talked with me thoroughly about my specific problem areas as well as showed me pictures and educated me on fibrosis and lymphodema...clearly something that none of my previous surgeons even attempted to explain. Sharon is no nonsense and I’m a bottom line gal so I deferred to her expertise and start my first appointment on Monday. I left with a renewed feeling of hope.

    I've been going to NLC for massage treatments monthly for over a year and would recommend to anyone looking for skilled massage therapist (although they offer many other services). This is not a spa in the sense of a typical beauty/massage spa. However, the space is clean, and the staff friendly and knowledgeable and they offer many other services such as lymphatic treatment, etc. . It's conveniently located and easy to get an appointment.

  • I had constant chest pain for three days prior to my appointment! Then poof! I had a couple of sessions and no more chest pain. I had even gone to the emergency room and all the tests were negative, yet I was told the gold standard was to have more invasive tests. I don't ever suggest anyone not follow up with their physician but the lymphatic drainage center saved me from constant chest pain!! Thank you Sharon Vogel. You are a God sent!!

    Omg!!! This specialist Sharon is amazing!! She explain everything and shows you the results while in session!!! I am in love with how gentle and professional she is!! MONEY WILL SPENT

  • Front office could use remodeling- some comfortable chairs, new rugs. Cost at $200/hr is pricy.

    Sharon is absolutely wonderful! She takes her time with you, explains everything thoroughly and is a wealth of knowledge. She also has amazing energy that rubs off. Can’t help but love her. She also creates her schedule around the clients needs, which is hard to find these days.

  • and your wounderful too!!

    It’s like walking into bliss.

Sharon is amazing! She is a miracle worker! I have had a cough and chest pain for 2 months that i couldn’t get rid of. She explained it was inflammation and if even after first session I felt tremendous relief Felt like 20lbs just lifted off my body Need to see!
by Kelly on May 14
Monday May 13th I was comfortably wrapped from foot to hip still with an ability to bend/walk. My previous hospital appointed therapist certainly did not give me any type of service, wrapping and oh the massage like Sharon. Hubby got to watch and learn. The two of them would talk about the area worked n and see a difference...I felt like I was in an euphoric trance. Sure there’s discomfort when she’s working on clogged junctures of the lymphatic system and she makes it’s very tolerable yet I honestly felt relief that quickly. Excited to how this will all work out. HOPE

Nick is amazing. The session was not only therapeutic but educational as well. Nick help me to feel comfortable and relaxed during the session as I was a bit nervous and thought I would be in great pain.
by Apollonia on May 05
Nick is great! I've been seeing him for a little over a year (once a month massage) for hip, sciatic nerve, and piriformis muscle pain. He's always very thoughtful and asks how I'm doing and based on how I'm feeling will treat the specific area/customize the service. Mostly it's deep tissue massage and it's helped me so much. Nick is also very knowledgable/skilled on other therapies that they offer at NLC (I've even experienced a few minutes of lymphatic treatment at the end of my massge). I highly recommend Nick!

Sharon’s professionalism and expertise are excellent. Her calming nature allows you to completely relax each and every time. My daughters 10 and 11 utilize her lymphatic body work myofacial release as a quick intervention for sinus congestion. Fixes it every time. I see her regularly to keep my autoimmune disease under control. She releives my chronic inflammation and I can visably see and feel the difference. My puffy face and tight shoulders are gone and I feel like and more flexible. I always seek out Sharons lymphatic drainage when I start and finish a detox series. Extremely grateful to have found a practictioner who is practically perfect in every way.

My wife has chronic pain and looks forward to her session with Sharon. She creates a calming experience that drives healing. I honestly do not know where we would be without her help. We have tried 4 other lymphatic practitioners with very little results. However, one session with Sharon and there is already a noticeable change in my wife's pain, swelling, and rest. Simply the best in class!
