About Us

  Absolute means "unrestricted". It defines freedom, control, and choice. When these are taken away, what remains is submission. Now, let's relate these to the living body. Can you imagine what it would be like to lose your freedom of movement, to be limited by pain and restricted to the very least of activities? Many of us won't have to imagine, we live physical restrictions day in and day out. Many depend on medications for temporary relief and control of their pains so they can experience some of life's enjoyment. Others simply surrender to their limited choice of activities.
 
 
        Now, let's look at the more positive side of what our body can do. The living body has the innate capability to heal itself. When given every absolute chance to regain strength and rebuild itself, the b...

Every massage I've had in the past can't even stand up to Maria's massage. Other therapists are afraid to hurt be because I'm small, but she didn't hold back and I feel so much better because of it. She's so strong!
by Jodi B. on Jun 03
As always, it was the best massage ever! Maria is so professional, kind, dedicated to your health, and an expert at what she does. This is not just a relaxing massage it is a therapeutic, deeply relaxing massage and Maria focuses on your specific needs and conditions. Her knowledge of how the body works and is connected is amazing. She finds sore spots I didn't know I had! I recently had a massage on vacation in Mexico and all it did was leave me longing for a massage from Maria. It didn't come close to comparing to what she does! She is the only one I will go to!

Maria has a lovely touch. She pays close attention to my issues/concerns and talks with me afterward about anything she finds or thinks I should know about. I will definitely be back.

Maria's skills are beyond compare! From the moment you enter her clinic, you know she'll get to the root of your issues. She truly has a healer's touch!

Maria is a skilled practitioner. I credit her with helping me to keep chronic pain manageable. I hope she continues to practice for a very long time.

Maria is always up to date on the latest techniques and really makes a difference immediately. Is so knowledgeable about the human body and what works best in recovery and how to help get me back on track the quickest !
by Martrese W. on Mar 09
Maria is outstanding at relaxation and sports massages. Her demeanor is very pleasant and her massages are outstanding. I've been going to her for years and I always look forward to our sessions.
by Andryce A. on Mar 05
Maria is friendly and informative. Her massage pressure was spot on for my liking, and she is approachable for feedback if you have a different preference. The experience was relaxing and just what I was hoping for!

by Anonymous on Jun 15
Very impressed with John's skill level. My muscles responded well to his techniques and I definitely felt a huge difference with my posture and thw way I moved after our session. Afterwards, he recommended things I can do on my own to help prevent future injuries. I highly recommend Absolute Balance Bodywork!

Maria is thorough in her approach and does a great job concentrating on problem areas while addressing other muscle groups that may be contributing to the overall pain. Her intake and post treatment assessment let me know she pays attention to my requests and the state of my body. The olive oil blend made me break out a bit, so I may ask if a lotion is available or bring my own. I don't believe, there's anything wrong with the oil itself-- rather just my skin type .
