Valerie is hands down the most gifted masseuse I have ever had, and I have worked with many. She is always present, centered and intuitive, never "phoning it in". Her massages include beautiful, seemingly endless long strokes, and she has a real gift for just "knowing" how to release those trouble spots. Honestly, I am so spoiled by Valerie that I won't have a massage with anyone else!

I have been a "regular" at Massage Garage, requesting Valerie. Valerie is caring and listens to my needs, then delivers upon them with calm and professionalism. I get music I like, at a room temperature that is good for me and she checks in to make sure pressure she applies is comfortable. I typically have one point in massage where I drift off...and then it's time to turn over, so I know I still have 30 minutes left. ahhh

Valerie is intuitive and extremely knowledgeable. I rely on her heavily to keep my body working smoothly. Thanks to her I feel 10 years younger with a bounce in my step.
