About Us

My massage philosophy is to relieve stress and tension through skillful and intuitive touch and to make sure that every client leaves my studio feeling relaxed, refreshed and energized.

I firmly believe in listening to my clients and paying careful attention to their individual needs and concerns.  Massages should incorporate input from the client so that together, we can produce the best possible results.  I hope to hear from you soon...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • A regular client for over 10 years going at least monthly. Have tried many others, none compare to the quality and personalized care. The best!

    Clean, propmt service, lovely people.

  • I left without any of the pain or muscle tension that had me laid up for days!! It was such a blessing!

    Julie Del Nero did an absolutely fantastic job with my massage. I haven't had a massage therapist explain my condition, spinal stenosis, on a chart before! She started massaging my shoulders, which turned out to be extremely sore and tight, and then focused on my lower back. Afterwards, I felt 100% better all over.

  • This was an excellent experience. All of my concerns were addressed in a professional peaceful relaxing environment.

    I went for a 30 minute localized massage. She gave me the full 30 minutes, and it felt great. She’s warm, intelligent and very professional. I would definitely do it again.

  • Yes I would it’s close to home and they can work around your schedule

    It felt amazing left there like a brand new man. Thanks julie

  • Highly recommended! Looking forward to scheduling again :)

    I was amazed at how much better I felt than when I walked in. Actually wanted to play golf after.

The location is in a small house with a Tattoo business, but when I have been there there’s rarely been anyone else present. On my first visit Julie took me upstairs to a massage room, but when I mentioned I had trouble with stairs she switched to the downstairs room, which I hadn’t realized was even there.
