Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I've had plenty of prenatal messages but nothing like this. Kari was extremely knowledgeable about the needs and complications of a pregnant womans body. At 39 weeks I recieved, with the ok from my doctor, the message referred to as 'Ready Set Go' The specialized work she did addressed deep tissues and tight ligaments I didn't even know were knots until she released them. Afterwords I felt more comfortable and relaxed than I did at 12 weeks pregnant. I wish I had worked with her from the first day of my pregnancy.

    Kari was very knowledgeable and I could feel the changes happening to my body during the course of the Mayan massage.

  • Kari is so knowledgeable and so kind. Her massages are by far the best I’ve ever had. She stretches my neck in a way I didn’t even know I needed. 100% recommend.

    I so appreciate the time Kari took to listen to my needs and provide knowledgeable and helpful information to manage pregnancy symptoms and pain. Very relaxing massage!

  • Wonderful and relaxing experience

    I loved Kari's knowledge of prenatal massage and her massage style. All if her equipment and the ambience made me feel very comfortable and it was easy to get some much needed relaxation and relief the week before my due date.

  • Kari was very professional and gave me some real relief of my pregnancy aches and pains at 33 weeks.

    Great experience! Kari was very informative and helpful.

  • The work on my lower back and sacrum seems to have made a difference.

    It's always a treat getting to spend time with Kari. She instantly makes you feel like an old friend. She is a wonderful listener and incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to fertility and the art and importance of listening to our bodies. When I first met Kari, I left with such a strong feeling of hope and acceptance. She's taught me to look at my cycle in a completely different light, one of awe and gratitude instead of resistance. I only wish every woman knew about Mayan Abdominal Massage Therapy! It's been a wonderful addition to my healing journey and I'm so grateful to Kari for offering this service alongside her incredibly therapeutic massages.

I liked Kari right away when I walked in the door. She has an easy going, welcoming vibe that made me feel comfortable and at home. I felt like I was able to truly relax. I saw Kari for a Mayan abdominal massage and she taught me so much in addition to the massage. She spent a full two hours with me and I never felt rushed. Worth every penny.

I loved that she took so much time to get to know your needs on the front end. Also, that’s she actually listened to what I needed out of the massage. Her pressure was perfect! She didn’t just give you a massage, she massages you. She found and worked on all of my kinks besides just going through the motions of a massage.

I loved the deep penetration of the abdomen to break of scar tissue and potential fibroids. I loved the informational session right before the treatment. I loved the entire session! I didn't like that I didn't see anyone in the office, when I arrived for the appointment , so I wasn't sure if I was in the right place. The man that was in an office didn't know the business that I was looking for and wasn't particularly helpful.

Kari was super knowledgeable and skilled. She helped me flip a breech baby! I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Business response:

Yay! I'm so happy your baby got in a better position. I helped release tight ligaments and pelvic restrictions, but your amazing body and sweet baby did the real work. Let me know how everything goes!! Definitely come see me postpartum if not before.
