There is nothing NOT to like! She not only knows anatomy, but has the skills to tailor a session to your individual needs. When you add her personality and knowledge to the overall experience, it's hard to find anyone better... especially if you're a person who is looking for expertise in a massage therapist! After all, she's an Olympic masseuse!!

Gretchen is a seasoned massage therapist now with Medicupping skills! As a holistic physician and acupuncturist, I often employ cupping as part of the treatment, however, Medicupping is much more comprehensive and thorough and I highly recommend it.

Gretchen was responsive and provided a wonderful massage with a minimal amount of breaking the calm vibe. Her experience is abundantly evident! I'm sorry that I don't live in the area - would love to go back often. This was a very nice way to start a vacation!
