Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I have been to Ann many times but I've been reluctant to get a massage with COVID still a risk. However, I so needed a therapeutic massage with focus on my neck and shoulders. Ann provided just that and while sometimes its uncomfortable to work out 'issues in my tissues' she checked in to assure her pressure was tolerable. She was committed to giving me what I needed which was much appreciated. An added benefit is that you receive your massage while lying on an amethyst Biomat, providing far infrared heat, which relaxes everything so she can even better serve your needs. I felt as safe as you can be there days with the recommended COVID protocol Ann is following.

    Ann work out soo many knots using amazing trigger point techniques. I feel soo much better!

  • Every thing was great

    The massage was just what I needed. I couldn’t believe how tight I was. The rock blading definitely helped Ann get into those spots.

  • Sometimes too strong a pressure.

    Best massage I’ve ever had! She really understood my ailments and worked on those instead of just a normal boring massage.

  • I appreciated Ann's adherence to COVID protocol to ensure the safely of her clients. The deep tissue message was great. Worked out my knots and was super relaxing. Would definitely return.

    A few years ago I tore my rotator cuff. Tried physical therapy, Cortizone shot. It helped but, short lived. Surgery was the only option left, and scar tissue was going to be my next dilemma. My wife suggested I go see Ann Farrel before I do the surgery. After several appointments with Ann, I have full range of movement with my shoulder and no pain, and it’s been 4 years. Being in construction I have chronic back issues. I always try Motrin and stretching which prolongs my decision to go see Ann. After a couple of days to a week of dealing with the pain, I make that appointment. She hasn’t let me down since. Thank You Ann.

  • Truly one of the best massage therapists I have ever had the blessing of experiencing. Not only did Anne find all my painful spots that needed attention, she stretched them out and helped me feel like I could improve my posture and that is RARE to find with touch! A true gift and intuitive healer- I will be back!

    Ann has great hands and a great touch. Her studio is beautifully done. I've been a regular of hers for several years now. You'd know why after one experience on her table.

There is nothing to dislike about Ann or her services. Due to the CoronaVirus I had not had a massage for several months, and was suffering from pain in my left leg. After my massage, I felt no discomfort, and two days later I am still pain free, and able to walk better and get to sleep! Thank you, Ann!

"amazing" doesn't fairly describe my session with Ann. Absolutely wonderful is my description. I was up in Lake Placid for a short visit and my back went out. I've never been a client but Ann diagnosed and resolved my problems better than any other masseuse I've seen over the past 5 years. I live 4 hours away but I wish I lived closer to the High Peaks and get a treatment from Ann more often. She is a gifted caring woman and knows her profession very well.

My first visit was a wonderful experience. Ann was very kind and very good. I felt much better after my massage. She was very competant and seemed to care about the lasting effects the massage would have. Follow up visits were Excellent. Gets better every time. I give 5 stars like everyone else, but don't want Ann to become complacent. :)) Being a challenging, knot filled, tension packed individual. She is always cheerful, extremely competent, and seems to get better every time I visit. After a massage, I always feel calm, relaxed, and looking forward to the next massage.

Ann is amazing! She not only loosened the deep knots I had, but helped my flexibility in my hips and knees and shoulders. I have been seeing her for years, especially after a major surgery. Years ago, I had total knee replacement surgery and had difficulty achieving the bend in my knee with physical therapy. She knew exactly how to reduce the muscle spasms and relax them to reduce my pain and bend better in less time than any physical therapist could. She has the incredible knowledge of muscles and trigger points to help relieve pain and achieve the flexibility needed for a better quality of life. She is very thorough and listens and works with you to make the time spent as rewarding and gets results. I am an active person and because of her, I can do more! I have visited other people before meeting Ann and have never had the results as with her. She is the very best!

I like everything about Ann and her massages! Prior to our session we discuss what areas of my body are needing work, and her massage addresses these areas. Any questions I have are answered fully, and allow me to work on these areas in between sessions. Her hands are magical and always bring relief. She adjusts her methods to my needs. She is highly knowledgeable and professional. Due to sciatica, when I began therapy with Ann, walking was somewhat painful. Now, that is no longer a problem, and we are focusing on muscle tightness due to stress and lifestyle. I would highly recommend Ann. I look forward to each session, and come away relaxed and refreshed!!!!
