I found Cathy through a Yelp search and decided to try her out to help relieve some stress and TMJD related tension in my head, neck and shoulders. She listened when I told her what was bothering me and got to work focusing on the exact right areas. I left feeling great! As an added bonus her prices are reasonable.
