Mary Reis

Life is better with massage!

When I was 21 years old I was in a head-on collision with a drunk driver and it changed my life.  I was fortunate in that, while my injuries caused me to change my life-style, they still allowed me the use of all my limbs and faculties.  What really had an impact on me was the realization that I could have died in the accident, and I began to  consider the direction my life was going.

She was so thorough with my evaluation and what I needed since I am dealing with some spinal issues. She was so aware of my body and what it needed and didn't need. Very respectful in every aspect of the word. I absolutely recommend her.

I like the connection Mary has with her client. She asks questions about what is helpful and what is not. She is always seeking better ways to tailor her skills to suit the client's needs. She knows her muscles and bones and what works where. She wants to know the effect of her interventions and what has improved or not improved in the interim between appointments. she

I felt much looser after the massage and am pleased that Mary seems to have found a massage that will work best for me.

overall very positive, looking forward to next massage in two weeks. I have had previous massages from Mary but much time had elapsed since the last so she took considerable time to become updated. Very skilled and professional.

Amazing as always! I love how Mary interacts with patients - finding exactly what they need, making them really comfortable, etc. Then, each massage is different, based on what needs working on - different speeds, pressure, routine, but always phenomenal! My whole family has been coming to her for years. The only part I dislike is when it's over! :)

Mary Reis has an uncommon ability to contact and follow the subtle body, determine the direction of ease, and then find a method of working that shows the body a way to come into healthier alignment and function. This approach works with the body to find a way, then offers new information and possibilities, so that the body can respond naturally, without imposition. Definitely recommend.
