Valerie Broatch

CAMTC Certified Massage Therapist specializing in firm and flowing long-stroke Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, serving a diverse population in Los Angeles for over 10 years.

I combine long, flowing strokes and slow, deep muscle work for a deeply relaxing, integrating and therapeutic massage treatment. Typically I do full-body massage, incorporating Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques using medium to firm pressure. I integrate gentle or intense focused work and stretching, depending on your needs and preferences.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Kathy on Oct 18
Valerie is great! Everyone should be lucky enough to get a massage from her!$
by Diana on Oct 15
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 the best masseuse I know here in Los Angeles. Long deep movements, she is very focused on the client. My wife and I will not see anyomne else! We are spoiled.

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.
