Nichole was very professional and gave a great massage--she used good pressure and I really felt relaxed. I had a lot of stress prior to my massage and my neck and upper back felt sore when I arrived, but the pain was gone when the massage was done! I would highly recommend her.

Nichole was the best!!! Gave wonderful insight to my neck problems and really worked out the bug knot I had. The oils she used smelled amazing and madr my skin baby soft. I felt like I was walking on a cloud after. It was my first visit and I'm sad that I'm moving out of state, otherwise, this would be my go to spot for a good massage!!! When I come home to visit, I will definitely make an appointment to see her!!

Nicole brings years of experience to this service and it shows. She is very friendly, has an infectious smile, and consistent professional manner. I have gone to several spas over the years and the Caressence experience was a gift from my sister. I have been impressed enough by Nicole's services until I have come back regularly for two years and have added several friends to my spa dates.

I especially appreciate Nichole's initial question before she begins my massage: "What can I do for you today?" She recognizes that my needs may vary from session to session, and she responds accordingly! Nichole doesn't rush me off the table at the end of my sessions, but if I could roll onto a cot and take a 15-30 minute nap--that would be ideal!
