Doreena is an excellent massage therapist. I've had many massages through the years, some at 5 star resorts, and have finally found a great one here in Pittsburgh. Just yesterday I had my second massage in a week with Doreena and look forward to many more. Doreena makes herself available to meet the busy schedules of her clients and even follows up to see how you feel afterwards. She has earned my loyalty and business. I encourage you to give her a try as I'm sure you will not be disappointed!

It was quickly apparent that Doreen is passionate about her profession and strives for delivering superior service. She was very good at addressing my shoulder issue and loosening other sore muscles. And the scalp massage was fantastic!

Doreena has been working with me for almost 2 years now, in conjunction with my Chiropractic care. She is the only massage therapist in the Pittsburgh area that I will see, because of her skill set and the extra time and effort she takes to tailor each session to my personal needs. She is very attentive and it is always such a great relaxing and healing experience when I am able to see her.

Doreena took time prior to the massage to thoroughly go over the prior medical history form with me asking questions when necessary. Everything about her "space" (ambiance) was very much to my liking. From the choice of relaxing music to the heated massage table, my experience was great. "Communication is key," she said, so when I asked her to lighten up the pressure, adjustment was made, smooth sailing! Can't wait to go back again. Thank you, Doreena.

Doreena explained every technique that she was using it during the massage. Not only was my massage very relaxing and reviving but I also experienced relief of pain from my neck and upper back for well over a week. I highly recommend Doreena to anyone who is looking for a massage that doesn't just rejuvenate the person but also helps in a healing process. Her prices are extremely reasonable and the experience of her massages are something that I would expect from a 5 star fancy spa and health resort.

Doreena was excellent. She demonstrated her passion for healing through massage in every aspect of the experience. She was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. I have never felt such personal, caring energy in any of my other massage experiences before -- this was my fifth or sixth professional massage. Doreena is committed to learning more about massage, the body and healing through her experience with you as an individual. Please consider her service without hesitation. I can't wait to continue with my next massage. *Highly recommend*

Doreena takes her time and is attentive. She really listened to the physical issues I was experiencing and provided great instruction on stretches. I especially enjoyed the hot stones and the essential oils she used to soothe my headache. Excellent experience...probably one of the best massages I have ever had. I recommend you give her a try and feel for yourself! :)

After being in a pretty bad car accident Doreena has taken the time to work with me to help aid in my healing process. She has been wonderful and extremely accommodating to my health needs as well as my schedule. Her skills speak for themselves, my treatment would not be as far as it is today without Doreena's help. I highly recommend her and would not see any other message therapist other than her moving forward.
