OUTSTANDING CLIENT SATISFACTION!

"In the past several years I've seen 5-10 different massage therapists, and none has provided the level of service that Maria has. Her calm, and patient demeanor are a pleasure, and she is imminently adaptable to my specific requests and pressure tolerances. In the past I've had issues with therapists ignoring specific requests to avoid certain areas or techniques. That's never been a problem with Maria. Her skill level is easily in the upper tier of what I've experienced, and her rates are very reasonable. She is also very amenable to spending time talking about specific muscle groups and educating me as to their names and locations." (Jen D.) ...

Maria is amazing at tailoring my massage to whatever is going on. I’ve had pain for 8 months and she is the first treatment to help me find any movement at all towards relief. Very knowledgeable and helpful in ways I can help myself outside of massage times.

Maria is great! She always asks if I have any areas of concern. I often have injuries or troubled areas from being active or lack of. I always walk out feeling relaxed and after a day or two my troubled areas are no longer a concern or have significantly improved. Highly recommend.

I can't say enough about Maria, she is fabulous. She asks each time if anything has changed or needs special attention. She is professional, friendly and always on time. I never feel like I'm being rushed in or rushed out. Most importantly, I always feel better when I leave. She is highly skilled and attentive. I can't wait for my next appointment!
