REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Massage started with Melissa going over intake w me, asking questions about my pain then told me her plan. She used heat packs on my back & neck to aid in relaxing muscles. Best massage ever. Used stretches on my legs, called it apart of Thai massage, placed warm rocks in my hands, spent extra time in the areas of need, and asked about pressure. Everything was wonderful. I bought a package and rebooked.

First hot stone massage and it 'melted' away aches and pains. Melissa checked in throughout massage to make sure stones were not too hot and was very relaxed afterwards.

My first experience with massage. I especially appreciated the consideration given to my needs and preferences. I was very comfortable. And it sure felt good! I also enjoyed our conversation and am glad for alll of the helpful information I received. Very importantly, I feel massage has enabled recovery from my extremely painful injury!

Melissa is very good as is all the other therapist. I couldn't say who my favorite is as they all offer their own unique style and abilities. Very interested in trying Thai now that Linda offers it. I'll be back. Been going to them for over 5 yrs.

Best massage. Lomi is my new addition. Therapist was warm and professional. Pressure was adjusted to my needs. She found knots the helped release my tension. First time ever having my stomach muscles worked in massage, was amazing.

I had a ton of knots by my shoulder blades and she worked at them until they were completely gone. She was conscious of the parts of my body that are injured, and had a nice firm pressure when I told her I liked it on the firmer side. Another bonus- I also never talk during massages and I did with her the whole time. She’s a great massage therapist and fun to talk to :)
