REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Coaching services

Amazing!!!!
by Joanna on Jan 28
This was my first ever migraine therapeutic massage and Ronnie did a great job!I enjoyed the experience thoroughly. I will be coming back for future work.
by Alexandra on Jan 28
I love that Ronnie examined me first and did different techniques during the massage. She responded according to what my body was doing and telling her. Best massage I’ve ever had.
by Catherine on Jan 21
Every part of the experience was excellent. I did really appreciate the warmth in this dark and cold time of the year.
by Quinn on Jan 20
Ronnie's expertise helps my children feel so comfortable and helps them stretch!
by Lilian on Nov 29
I like that she works on the areas that are bothering you and gives suggestions on how to help keep you limber.
by Anonymous on Nov 08
Every massage includes hot stones (!!) and Ronnie listens to your body with her hands and responds as needed. No two massages are identical.
by Anonymous on Oct 06
Ronnie is the best in the “business”. One of the best messages I’ve had with attention focused on problematic areas. I would recommend her above all.
by Carol on Aug 19
Ronnie is very professional and and a true expert in her craft. Her warm manner allows me to feel comfortable and well cared for. It is obvious that she genuinely cares
by Dave on Jul 26
Wonderful Experience! Dealing with pain everyday is never fun, after meeting with Ronnie for an Assessment and with just one session, I experienced some relief. I am sure this is a process which will have its ups and downs, but I am confident she will partner with me and the team I assembled to tackle my pain management.
