Elmira made me feel very comfortable, as a first time customer. When you walk through her door, you are immediately met with the most aromatherapy experience. The aroma was so inviting and relaxing. Elmira patiently took time to listen to my concerns. She has a warm spirit. I highly recommend her.

Elmira's signature massage is truly wonderful. One of the best I've ever had if not the best.

I told Elmira where and what kind of problems I was having and she can read my body and adjust my massage to what my body needs. In just 2 sessions she's been able to undo months of suffering. I am so glad I found her.
