Talking Body Listening Hands

Changing how you feel, one muscle at a time

I've been practicing therapeutic neuromusclar massage since September 2009. The first 5 years of my practice was in a chiropractic setting. I feel my experience guided me to fully understand how both therapies working together simultaneously created a synergistic effect resulting in much faster recovery time. As I grow my own practice I continue to add to my massage skills so that I can uniquely tailor each massage based on your daily and future goal...

Liked that I learned so much about what's happening with my sore hip and how to support it going forward. I asked a question and actually got good information back. This so rarely happens with professionals I've worked with.

Tanya took the time to evaluate my situation and make recommendations on how to address the biggest issues up front. After my fabulous massage (both therapeutic and relaxing!), she again discussed with me how best to manage my care and the strengths of each therapist. It was a wonderful experience!

Tanya's techinque was exactly what I needed. This was a reward to myself for finishing a project at work over the past 6 months @ 70+ hours a week. Unlike any other professional massage I've received, afterwords she gave information on what she found (i.e. problem areas) and what she would recommend. Excellent massage. Would highly recommend her and will use her again.

Tanya is a true professional from the time you make your appointment all the way through your therapeutic massage, she listens very well when you explain your troubled areas and she very carefully works the areas that need attention, I've been having therapeutic massages for over four years now from Tanya for a spine injury I sustained in a car accident 10 years ago and since I've been seeing her I am able to work my construction job, play sports & enjoy life again. Thanks again Tanya your the best.

Tanya honestly takes the time to make to make you feel like you are her only client. Going to the chiropractor for many years without any results led me to try Tanya's services. After only one visit I saw immediate results. Her knowledge of the muscular system is extensive and she is always a constant professional with a open ear. She is the only massage therapist I will see again.

This was my first appointment with Tanya. She did a good job on loosening my back. It's unfortunate for me that my schedule doesn't work with hers. Fridays and Saturdays are my days off and she is not always available those days.I have referred some of my co-workers the live in the area. Not sure if any have scheduled appointments. I hope to schedule more appointments in the future if the stars align.

I have been getting massage therapy from T. L. Smith for about three years now (spinal surgery), she always greets you with a smile and she is very professional and caring about the wellness of her clients. I drive 120 miles round trip for my massage therapy because I know that Tanya is by far the best and most qualified masseuse I have ever been to.
