Star is amazing! Each session begins with a short conversation about what's going on with your body. Once the session begins, she takes that conversation and puts that together with what she "reads" in your body. She is intuitive and allows your body to tell her it's needs. As she works with you (as opposed to on you) there might be a little conversation (if needed) as to what is going on and your reactions. I was searching for a massage therapist/healer and I found her!

Business response:

Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful review of The Healing Room! It has been a great honor working with you on your bodywork goals. See you next week!

Star Amazing massage therapist a healing vibe. I also requested that she bring her dog for a little puppy therapy, as I recently lost mine. She showed up early, giving me extra time to wind down with the puppers, then proceeded to untwist my tightly bound knots. Star is amazing!

I've been getting massage pretty regular for sciatica, stress relief, and to control autoimmune symptoms of arthritis for years. And Star is the best massage therapist I've ever had! She's very intuitive to your healing process and I haven't felt this good in years. She incorporates insight, experience, and creativity from many areas of western and eastern therapeutic healing philosophies. As a Mental Health Practitioner, I've recommended her to colleagues and clients alike. And she always does more than what is expected whether it be a bit extra time with the massage, listening to my stress symptoms, using imagery, physical therapy, heated stones or towels, crystals, evidence based research theories and techniques or whatever may seem right for the moment. I'm so grateful to have met her. She really is amazing.

Business response:

Thank you for writing such a thoughtful review! I am happy to hear that your massage sessions at The Healing Room are proving beneficial! It has been such an honor to be a part of your healing journey! I'm excited to continue on this amazing path with you!

Susan's manner is quiet and attentive. and she is a good communicator.. As a result of a previous series (3-4) of treatments to my right leg, I was able to hike in the Andes pain-free. So I have returned to her now for difficulties I am having with my left.

Star Walker led me through somatic experience in a graceful and sublimely intuitive manner. I had no idea what to expect, and what I came away with was powerful and meaningful. Learning how to work with my body and the messages it is always sending me is a satisfying and worthwhile endeavor, and an integral part of my healing journey. I highly recommend Star Walker to anyone on that path.

Star has been my bodyworker for almost 2 years now and I trust very few others. She has a very intuitive style and can be both gentle and relaxing as well as deep and thorough. She has relieved so many aches and pains over the years, I don't know what I would do without her. She is one of the real deals. She's not going to "rattle off names of muscle groups" as she heals you. That's not her thing. If you want that, go elsewhere, she knows the kinesiology intuitively. You'll see. It works.

Business response:

Thanks for your wonderful feedback! It has been an honor working with you over the past few years. Looking forward to many more happy healthy years with you and your muscles! Many Bliss-ings, Star
