Vernita was on time and professional while very pleasant. She was safety conscious, wore her mask when she entered my home as well as her shield during the massage and requested I keep my mask over my mouth and nose while faced in the upward position. Great pressure point techniques applied and she seldom spoke, allowing me to relax and truly enjoy the entire experience. She also let me listen to my own playlist... AWESOME!! I am definitely recommending her to anyone looking for a wonderful in-home self care moment.

Vernita was amazing! This was my first appointment with her and I found her on a google search. I decided last minute to make an appointment and she rearranged her schedule to offer me service. I loved that my intake form was emailed to me and I was able to complete online. She also gave me a back scrub for free as a new client. Phenomenal Service. I will definitely be going back.
