Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I'm recovering from open heart surgery and was experiencing a lot of muscle pain and tension in my neck, shoulders and upper back, which Karen immediately recognized due to her experience in cardiac nursing. She is competent, professional, calming, fun and easy going. She explains what she's doing and why. Karen's massage therapy was the best I've ever experienced. I highly recommend her.

    Karen's skills and personality are both wonderful. You can tell that she really cares:) I feel better today than I have in a long time !!

  • I like the concern for my health issues and she gave me tips for dealing with pain.

    It's been a long time since I've had any massage. My current job, which I love, is rough on my upper back and shoulders. Karen found all the right places and was always attentive to my needs. I didn't even realize how bad off I was in some spots! I am looking forward to continuing with Karen as part of my ongoing self care.

  • Karen, Thanks for working so hard to make sure my experience was amazing. Little touches like the wedge pillow and being able to lay on my side so that breathing was not an issue meant so much. You're terrific!

    Karen Godine is very nice lady. She is dextrous in taking your pains away through massage. She is one of the best.

  • Excellent deep muscle massage that really loosened the knots and increased flexibility. After a terribly, incredibly stressful day, I actually fell asleep on table while Karen was working her magic.Thank you Karen.

    Karen was very professional and the office clean and professional, as well. The online booking option was very helpful and convenient.

  • Absolutely amazing work. She really takes her time and listens to what your body needs. I have never felt more relaxed.

    I loved it! I really enjoyed being told what was going on and why. It was so helpful to me personally and it was extremely professional!

Karen is the penultimate professional. She is caring and works with you to achieve the best results from her therapy. She knows her craft and exactly how to work the kinks out of my stressed neck and shoulder muscles. It was one of, if not the best, therapeutic massages I've ever experienced. I've already booked my next appointment. Ann, Sagamore Hills

It wasn't long enough! Karen is great and finds areas of pain that other masso-therapists have not. She is friendly, and being a retired nurse, definitely knows the human body and issues that come from tension, stress and years of over-use or bad habits. After multiple visits I will rate her amazing! My first visit was excellent!
