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 wonderful, I've gone back twice because it was such a great experience.

Maria has the hand strength to get deep into muscle and an intuitive mind that knows which muscle groups need work. She obviously loves her work and is an excellent masseuse

I always leave feeling so refreshed, whether it’s for a specific issue or if I just need relaxation, Maria is fantastic.

Felt completely relaxed and felt Maria went above and beyond to address my pains.

I shared with Maria that I had been experiencing some hip flexor and t-band issues. My recent massage was so relaxing, yet she skillfully addresses the hip issue and it feels so much better!

Maria is great. With COVID in the air, I don't worry about a thing because runs a tight ship and keeps things safe. I don't think I would feel as safe anywhere else.
