Terra is skillful, intuitive, and communicative. I came to her with some longstanding pain from whiplash and lots of stress being carried in my back, shoulders and neck. After numerous sessions of medical and deep tissue massage, the pain and stress have been worked out and my blood pressure (which was higher than ever) is now back to normal, and my energy has returned. Terra is incredible and the strongest massage therapist I have ever seen. Without question, she has helped improve my quality of life through massage!

I have a lot of medical back problems and she addresses all of them accurately. It is so much more than a relaxing experience because she is a medical masseuse. I wish I knew about her sooner. Look no further she is the best and addresses all of your concerns and problem areas. My muscle spasms and knots are everywhere; she really cares and I won't go anywhere else. Her friendly demeanor is noted right off the bat! I can't say enough to compliment her talent.
