I wasn't able to touch my toes the morning before her massage and i woke up today relaxed and in. No pain, with full flexibility and no strain to touch my toes. I have never felt more even and refreshed!

Holden Hands is now my favorite spot! I've been to many other places and this is by far the best. Not only did I experience the best massage I've ever had, but the rooms are decorated beautifully, and I received great customer service. HIGHLY recommend.

I had been dealing with increasing pain in my back and arm for about 5 days before i reached out to Holden Hands Massage. At that point in time, I was in severe pain. I was able to get an appointment right away. Jacqueline was extremely professional, asked a lot of questions, and exhibited a great understanding of the human anatomy and how our bodies function. She was able to relief much of my pain during the first visit, but was cautious enough to eliminate any further inflammation by overworking any areas. Prior to my appointment, i was unable to use the computer, and combing my hair or applying makeup was painful. Post-massage, i have followed Jacqueline's suggestions, and am feeling more relief each day. i will definitely return.

Jacki has been a big help in relieving pain I was still experiencing after finishing my PT for sciatica. She has been amazing at using new techniques she learns by taking classes. It's nice to have someone who has more than the usual massage techniques to help when needed.

I was always VERY nervous about getting a massage, even though I was told by my husband that I desperately needed it. Now I am addicted. Especially after becoming fairly active I NEED the massages in order to keep my muscles in working order. Once a month I add in the raindrop technique where Jackie adds in essential oils to my massage and oh my gosh...there are no words for how amazing that is... Jackie is very knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, genuine and truly enjoys her work. It's too bad we can't take her with us when we move because I don't think there is another massage therapist out there like her. The office is very clean, welcoming and relaxing.

It was just all great. The office is in a very convenient location, but is sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the main road nearby. Entering the office already creates a relaxed mood. Miss Jackie has magic hands. I've had many different massage therapists in the past several years but she has a talent that goes beyond what is learned in school. In this area, I only recommend Holden Hands!

Jackie was absolutely wonderful, and that is an understatement! I will no longer go to any other licensed massage therapist, she is my go to from now on. I felt my problem areas were worked on very well. No other massage therapist has been able to do work like she does, I mean it! She is very intelligent and knows what she is doing, she genuinely wants to help you. Great options to choose from, very professional and kind. Thanks Jackie! -Brandy

I have been going to Jackie for eight months, and am amazed at how my migraines have lessened. Before starting massage with her I was having daily headaches and taking medication several times a week. Now, I don't have daily headaches, and have only taken migraine medication once in the last month and a half. She also has gotten rid of the plantar fasciitis in my feet! I cant say enough amazing things about what Jackie has done for my overall well-being!
