REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Aromatherapy, or Physical Therapy services

Ally is an excellent massage therapist with many years of experience. She has helped reduce my pain greatly.

I saw Ally for problems relating to a frozen shoulder. She has some special skills!! I walked being able to move my shoulder more than I have in the last 6 months. There is now light at the end of a very dark tunnel!! She also used her Bemer (I have one at home) and showed me some new techniques that I have already started using. The Bemer has helped so much also and am glad Ally introduced me to this months ago. I can't say enough good things about her but if you're in pain, please make an appointment, you won't regret it one bit!!

Wonderful! Great pressure, great movement, I was so relaxed and felt like a new person! One of the most attention-to-detail massages I’ve ever received! Thank you!

Ally is a gifted therapist who with just her touch can make a session so much more than a "massage".

Ally is very cheerful and makes me feel comfortable in her presences. She has a great passion for my well being and it shows in her care for me. She's very knowledgeable with exercises I can do at home for any pains I may have. I feel completely relaxed and renewed when I leave there and patiently wait for my next appointment.

After a month of serious yard work, all the sore spots were ID'd without talking - those magic hands did the work! Ready to rake more leaves!
