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.) ...

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

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!

Maria listens to you and has a thorough knowledge of the anatomy and actions of muscles to really address the issue at hand. She is professional and warm.

Maria is a great masseuse! She's very good at listening to my needs and assessing what the best approach will be for each massage I receive. She is equally talented at giving a relaxing massage to a very specific, almost trigger point massage - or even a combination of both. I leave feeling good every time.
