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.) ...

The massage I received from Maria was excellent. Her massage table was super comfy and she used the session time wisely so I felt like my problem areas really got addressed--I so appreciate that! Feeling great after my massage & planning on another one soon. Thanks Maria!

Maria’s knowledge and skill are superior. She targeted a very painful shoulder problem and provided significant relief along with excellent advice. She is one of the kindest people I know.
