Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Lead Therapist at Heartworks BodySpa
I have over 1400 hours of training, and over 4000 hours of experience in massage. I was by far the busiest therapist at the spa; there was a 2 1/2 month wait to get an appointment with me. I'm very interested in learning more about massage and the body, and I take courses whenever possible. I also have assistant taught many classes at Healing Hands School.

Barbara has knowledge and ability I have never experienced in any other masseuse. I suffered for a long time with physical issues which after only a few sessions, she completely resolved and they never returned. I won't ramble because there is no way I can say enough about her.

So hard for a guy to get a good deep massage these days. Well worth the money. I brought in my wife the next day for hers. Barbara is professional and very proficient. The room is set up specifically for massage, and she works during the whole hour.

Easy parking, nice greeting, heated room with changing area; also heated massage pad on the table. Barbara is a cheerful, warm and loving woman who has gifted hands. They are strong and she has a soothing therapeutic technique. Her intuitive abilities are remarkable. She knows where the tension hides in the body and is willing to do deep tissue as well. Very generous and kindly walks you out when you are ready to go.
