Tai did a great job of listening to where my tight spots were and tailored the massage to me personally. She is very professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a masseuse. I know I will be making another appointment and have no plans to go anywhere else.

Amazing experience!!! Tai is incredibly talented at massage, in finding your problem areas and in fixing them. I cannot say enough good things about her, her location or her skills. You would be crazy not to get a massage from her.
