REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Marguerite on Mar 10
For first-time experience it was truly relaxing.
by Anonymous on Feb 17
Every touch from Candace was a sacred blessing. She is really gifted. I felt in great hands and carefully considered. I enjoyed a number of unusual maneuvers that provided immediate relief. I especially enjoyed a certain twist move when my spine cracked and released some pressure, as well as the walk on my back. I had a really good session. The next day my body was in above average alignment and felt blissfully in tune. I can’t wait for the next session, and the next one after that.

Candace took the time to introduce herself, provided a description of the service and explained her process. I started not knowing what to ecpect but left feeling seen and heard. I look forward to continuing the work with her. I would highly recommend Sacred Touch Bodywork.

Candace is a consumate professional, her technique is firm but not probing. I felt both safety and comfort during her session.

Always loving and restorative. I come to Candace regularly and each experience is new and connects me to my body in a unique way. Infinitely grateful!

I came in with discomforts in my neck, shoulder, and back area, and left out feeling noticeably better. Candace has wonderful energy, and truly knows her craft. I am definitely looking forward to future sessions.
