Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I've never experienced such a thorough massage. Gretchen is thoughtful, observant, compassionate, and very personal so that I came away feeling well cared for as an individual even though I had never met her before. She addressed the deeper aspects of my nervous system as I requested and I found her treatment effective even after one session.

    Very talented and knowledgeable Highly recommend

  • Gretchen provided a welcoming and friendly environment; she listened to my needs and executed a thorough massage to help alleviate trouble areas. Her knowledge of anatomy and physiology is apparent as well as her understanding of neural connectivity. She answered all my questions happily and provided me with excellent information.

    Phenomenal...beyond a routine massage ..a peaceful and spiritual and healing experience 🥰

  • Book your session ASAP!

    Gretchen exudes total positive vibes during the massage while at the same time is both personal and professional. Very concerned in your well being. Looking forward for to next visit.

  • Gretchen is extraordinary. She talks to you before the massage and listens. When she's working on you, she listens to your body and inexplicably knows just what you need, as if she's clairvoyant and can read your mind. She gives you the full hour on the table. I kind of hate to leave the review because it's getting harder to find appointment times.

    Wonderful experience! Has already helped with some musculoskeletal imbalances that have become chronic. Thanks so much!

  • It was unlike any other massage I’ve ever had and more effective than any other massage I’ve ever had. I’m a 58 year old weight lifter with a number of aches and pains and left Gretchen’s skilled hands feeling pain free and “softer”. I could feel the connections in my body from one point to another. The game changer for me was when Gretchen told me “I’ve got you” during the massage and I truly believed she did and I was in the best hands. Thank you so very much. Can’t wait to see you again Gretchen. Margo Rudzinski

    The type of massage Gretchen provides focuses on alignment and healing layers, way beyond just relaxation. Her approach is creative and really therapeutic.

Words cannot express what a relief it is to be able to take my baby to see Gretchen. I see immediate results in the range of motion, and I know the energy work goes far beyond that. Gretchen looks and listens for feedback, just like with adults, and finds what’s going on in the whole body. It is so special to witness.

Gretchen's warm, professionalism made me comfortable from the start. The intake was thorough and I was made to feel very comfortable to express (or not) anything that came up throughout the session. Gretchen's space is inviting and has a clear energetic flow that feels good just being in it. The work was amazing, unlike massage I have experienced before, and I had some shifts/releases in the days that followed (which Gretchen informed me could happen). I will be back again and confidently refer people to her as a support for their healing journey.

Gretchen Dizer provided a fantastic massage therapy experience: the room was quiet, warm, aromatic, and beautifully appointed. Ms. Dizer was a complete professional throughout - I felt protected by that professionalism. Above all, her skill is superb. Based on a conversation at the outset of the appointment, she targeted specific muscle groups and worked them carefully and thoroughly. The afterglow was amazing: I was highly attuned to everything, but calm; energized but focused; and feeling fluid but strong from head to toe. A really magnificent experience!

Gretchen not only knows her stuff and is extremely knowledgeable and skillful at many different types of massages (which she integrates masterfully), but she also has incredible healing energy and presence that brings about transformative healing. My massage experiences have been unbelievably wonderful each time, with lasting effects on both my body and mind. They help me to let go of tension, worry, and anxiety in a profound way.
