Akemi provided an excellent massage experience, from the minute I walked into her room until I oozed out the door! The pressure was exactly right. She “worked” on my ailing arm/shoulder and I was pain free for the rest of the day. Akemi offers several extras at a very reasonable price and I took advantage of them.

This rating chart, per my estimation is too limiting. Akemi has hit "it" out of the universe when it comes to her professional expertise as it relates to my crazy facia, or however you spell it. After my first deep tissue massage, I was floating on air, so relaxed. After my second deep tissue massage, last Tuesday, I was relaxed afterward and my back did not again tighten-up until 4 am. After my massage on this last Thursday, at 9 am til 10:30 am, I have been pain-free all and with just minimal stiffness since 10:30 am until 11:21 pm the next day, on Friday. I know that I have found my License Massage Therapist of choice. I am finally experiencing pain relief from this unknown problem I have been experiencing for the last three weeks.

Akemi Is very professional and knows how to use a gentle, but effective, hand. I have Fibromyalgia and am not fond of being touched, for obvious reasons, but she was able to give me a massage that did not put me in excruciating pain... in fact, loosened me up enough that my chiropractor said that I should have a massage from Akemi before every appointment! so I will try to...

We are so grateful for the emergency work that Akemi did for my Fiance! Saturday morning she woke up with all of the muscles in the right side of her back seized up, in so much pain that sleeping, laying and sitting were almost impossible. Akemi squeezed us into her afternoon for an appointment, did a thorough review of the pain and issues and set to work solving them in a caring but productive way. After the appointment my Fiance had such relief that she said she felt like a new woman again! We were even able to continue our plans for the evening, which we were unsure we were going to be able to attend because of the pain she had been in. I'm truly grateful that not only was Akemi willing to fit us in on such short notice, but that she was so caring and kind in her assessment, treatment, and just overall demeanor. This was our first appointment and we both agree that we'll be going back to see her regularly. Also, the waiting area at her office where I sat during my Fiance's appointment, was beautiful and comfortable. Thank you Akemi!

Hear me now and listen to me later... you will ask yourself a question after your first session with Akemi. That question,"Why has God allowed me to suffer through lesser therapists all these years?"... is based on a false premise. He has actually been preparing you for a gift all these years that heretofore your heart, body, mind and soul would have been incapable of understanding. The better question, "Why has God chosen to bless me with Akemi?" Which, even given the answer you probably still wont understand, so just carry on with gratitude, and stop asking so many questions. : ) Make an appointment with Akemi, she heals !
