"The mind has exactly the same power as the hands; not merely to grasp the world, but to change it."

My name is Luna and I am a Nationally Certified Licensed Massage Therapist who is client-oriented with a large emphasis on overall health and wellness. I graduated from the Daytona State Massage Therapy program in Daytona Beach, Florida during the summer of 2005. Its cliche to say, maybe but I absolutely love what I do!

Luna is an extremely skilled and caring massage therapist. She takes the time to get know what you need and is adept at assessing any imbalances or tightness you might have just from watching you walk up her walk or from the way you stand. You won't find this in many others. I definitely recommend her services. She is a gem.

Luna has a sensitive touch. She can sense with her hands when you need more or less pressure and what areas require a little more attention. She also has a very calming and confident presence. She has healed me from a serious accident and I will always be grateful.

I told Luna I had been going through some stressful stuff and just wanted to relax. It was a perfect massage for that! Just letting go of tension like I wanted, nothing too intense.

Wonderful massage. I felt completely renewed afterwards. Luna is very skilled -- first massage therapist I've had who was able to do something with my shoulders/back/neck other than just complain about how messed up they are. My two legs feel the same length for the first time in many years.

This was my first massage with Luna. She made sure that I was comfortable with the environment, the massage and her technique. She assessed my needs and gave me a great massage. I had a knot in my neck/shoulder and some pain in my knee. The next morning, I was able to walk around with no pain the next morning. She used a mix of trigger point and deep tissue massage and gave me ideas to continue stretching and helping my muscles relax.I definitely plan to return and would recommend Luna to anyone else!!

I have been seeing Luna for my back over the course of two years now. I even moved to Portland, OR for a year and still came back to see her when I could (I travel). If I could put her in my suitcase I would. 5 stars.

I am so glad I found Luna's massage business, which is just a few blocks away from where I live. It is so convenient to be able to walk there. I wasn't sure what to expect with the business being in her home, but her home and massage room are very clean and have nice ambiance. Luna is professional as well as calming and kind in her demeanor. Oh, and her massage skills work wonders on the body!

Luna has a wonderful aesthetic sense and is a fantastic massage therapist. The entire experience of getting a massage from her is healing from both a physical and emotional perspective. She is gracious and professional and her place is absolutely lovely.

I have been seeing Luna for about 3 years. Simply put, Luna is the best. She employs a holistic approach to massage therapy and relaxation. This unique approach coupled with her diverse knowledge of human anatomy and massage therapy has no comparison. You are always greeted with a pleasant smile that belongs to a person with an amazing personality and very comforting demeanor. Her choice of music and space creates an ambiance that starts relaxing you the moment you walk in. Her Trigger Point and Swedish therapy are incredible. As an athlete, I have relied heavily on her to help me through some tough training camps. I can not say enough good things about her.

I've never had a thai massage before, but I really liked it. It was very relaxing and the stretches felt great! I was worried I would be sore the next day, but I still felt really loose. Would definitely recommend it!!!

Luna goes above and beyond as a massage therapist. Communication with her is a pleasure, and the care that she gives me is beyond measure. I especially appreciate how she delivers an education about the body as a system.

I can only say good things from my 90 minute integrative massage from Luna. She has a very quiet and calm persona which is exactly what I like from my therapist. She knows the body and knows how to gently coax it to release, even if it doesn't want to. I was sad when the time was up, I was completely relaxed, satisfied and now look forward to my next session.
