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...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great experience!

    I always leave my sessions with Maria relaxed and feeling so much better than when I arrived.

  • Very peaceful when you walk in.

  • Love it here.

    1st time in with Maria. Her hands are of course magic! I look forward to having her 'work out' those spots that she found and alerted me of!!

  • Maria is very good at working out the tight muscles and still being careful in areas where I have a pain sensitivity. I always feel relaxed and well taken care of when I leave. She knows when to talk and when to be quiet ~ the perfect balance!

    Great experience!

Maria gave great notes and feedback on what is going on with my body. She was strong and purposeful, and willing to work more on troubled areas.
by Carol on Nov 12
Maria is so caring, finding out any special needs and working so thoroughly on those areas of concern.
by Anonymous on Nov 10
Very thorough and honestly the best I’ve felt after a massage in a long time.
by Melanie on Nov 04
Maria understands the body and how to work the muscles. She worked with me on may painful spits and gave me stretches to do to help me daily. The whole process was wonderful. Best massage I have ever had.

Maria is always amazing! I leave feeling great.

Thanks so much. Your magic hands have left me in a quite a nice place. See you soon!
by Suzi on Sep 29
She always asks what I need specifically and is careful to follow my instructions for what I need that day. She is very sensitive to whether I want to talk or not. She is gracious and caring, with a gift in her hands to get to the tough spots in my shoulders and work out all the kinks and still be gentle where needed.

Maria is a Healer. She is an expert of about movement. She offers many tips for how to be in the world. Most Excellent!
by Michael on Jul 10
I normally dont write reviews as I am very picky. However, I think Maria is great. She listens to the client and has a great way of finding the little places that need attention. She is very calm and patient. Her full schedule is a testament to how good she is and how much people appreciate her work.

I've been coming to Maria for several years now, and today's session has proven again why she's the first person I see for pain relief. Today, I came in with intense body aches from a week long home renovation project. Maria identified and skillfully worked the muscles that have been causing me problems. In one hour, she gave me back painfree and ease of movements. Her knowledge and intuitive skills really set her apart from other masage therapists I've seen in the past. If you need muscle pain relief, I highly recommend Maria!

A miracle worker. After a session, I went from barely walking to waking up the next morning without pain.

John really knows what he's doing.
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!

I appreciate the cleanliness and comfort of the office. Maria always asks how I am doing and if there is anything she should particularly concentrate on. She also gives me an assessment of how I felt to her when she if finished.

I loved that Maria took the time to try to figure out what was causing my issues and making a plan to work on for my next visit. I didn't just want a feel good massage, but I wanted to tackle some of my problem areas. I'm so glad I went to her!

As a massage therapist myself, I can highly recommend Maria. I have been dealing with neck and shoulder pain for months. Other treatments and self care techniques have not resolved it. After two sessions with Maria, I have hope. She's not afraid to really get in deep to explore the muscles and stay with it til they release. My only regret is that I did not discover Maria sooner.

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 .

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!
