REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

When you meet someone who has a gentle and loving way, it is immediately obvious. Shannon has all the qualities a healer should possess and I felt instantly at ease when I met her. I was nervous at first because I’ve never had a massage but I was quickly made calm and was able to enjoy. Thank you, Shannon!

I don’t think I should be forced to use 20 words in order to submit my feedback. The 5 stars in all categories can speak for itself!

This was my first massage from Shannon. I have a lot of experience with many different massage therapists ranging from 1-8 on a scale of 10 as the best. I would give Shannon a 9! Shannon's approach was different from what I've had in the past...and that's a good thing! Shannon incorporates the whole body (bones, movement, placement, use, etc.) in her routine...not just the muscles. I'm very pleased with Shannon's practice and would recommend visiting her for a wonderful massage experience.
