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.) ...

Wonderful massage. Very detailed and tailored to what I asked for, and gave me great feedback on potential causes of my tension, as well as some solutions. Will be coming back!

Maria understands bodybuilders and power Lifters. Next day I was sore but much more flexible. Added benefit was she broke down a lot of fiber, which itself was an extra weight workout . Truth hurts. I need to strengthen my mid traps and rhomboids.
