Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Tara's the best!

    Very impressed with care, cleanliness and skill!

  • Terra is very talented. My daughter had shoulder surgery and was having issues with tight muscles even after PT. In just 3 visits with Terra my daughters ROM came back and she could put her arms equally above her head. We highly recommend Terra for your massage needs. She is very professional and listens to your needs.

    Very nice experience as it always is. I enjoy going here to get my massages and would recommend this place to anyone interested in getting a massage

  • A superior experience. I felt so much better and relaxed after the massage. Wouldn't go to anyone else. In addition, the health and safety of everyone is a top priority. All CDC and local/state health guidelines for sanitizing and cleaning procedures were followed. Temperature checks and masks were required.

    Terra does an amazing job. I left feeling with less pain and feeling very relaxed.

  • I have been going to Terra for years and she is just amazing. She always goes the extra mile to give you advice on things you can do to help correct any issues you are having and maybe suggest exercises you can do.

    Everything was great.

  • Service was great, and Terra listened to the problems I was having. She offered exercises that might help reduce my symptoms.

    Terra is excellent in every facet of her work. She takes a personal interest in your needs to aid your aches & pains. In my opinion, she is highly skilled in her profession. In addition, I consider her a dear friend, who always has mine & my wife’s overall health & well-being in mind. Reach out to her today and your body & spirit will thank you later.

As much a medical treatment as a massage. I actually felt myself standing straighter and in less pain as I walked out. I have better range of motion in my arm than I have had in years and the neck pain is reduced and manageable. She had great skills and calming peaceful energy
