Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I always feel comfortable and find it to relax me a great deal. Also helps in keeping me from muscle spasms which is great!

    you are just amazing

  • Emily always knows exactly where my muscles are tight when I have overdone it. I feel so much more relaxed when she is done!

    It had been 10+ years since my last massage and Emily did an amazing job! I can't wait to for my next appointment!

  • I liked that I told Emily my problem spots and that’s where she spent a lot of time. I’m very comfortable with Emily and she does an excellent job!!

    I enjoyed everything about my massage. I’ve never had a massage where warm stones or fire cupping were used if needed. Usually those are up charges at any other place I’ve had massages. The essential oils she uses are amazing. It seems like she knows which ones your body needs. She is a healer for sure!

  • Once again Emily did a fantastic job! She worked hard on the areas that had been giving me problems without neglecting the rest of my body. I highly recommend her!

    Emily does a great job of being able to target my source of pain and is truly compassionate about helping me to alleviate it. I highly recommend Nurture Your Body Massage!

  • There really wasn't anything I disliked.

    Awesome massage. Loved it. Would definitely go back.

Emily is very personable and knowledgeable. From the beginning with a soft touch to deep tissue work, essential oils to the cupping, her experience shows from your head to your toes! My only dislike was that I got a 60 minute instead of a 90. Leaves me wondering if she does 120 minute sessions!

Love that Emily knows right where the massage can impact me the best! She will ask where I feel I need work, but can usually 'feel' other areas I need it and it ends up being better than I hoped for once it is time to leave. Only downfall is I wish I could just go to sleep right there for a few hours-SO relaxed! :)

This was my first experience with massage. My visit was not for personal pampering, I'd been living with a sprained/strained neck for about 6 months. The pain is unbelievable! After seeking help with several doctors, I decided to try massage. It was so relaxing! The mood music, the aroma therapy, the skill and professionalism of my masseuse was such a relaxing experience. I felt so much better afterwards. Can't wait until my next appointment!
