Judi is very experienced and extremely knowledgeable. She happily customizes her approach to what her client needs each session. She was recommended to me highly for good reason. She is also a very kind person, great to talk to or not talk to. I really like her treatment room; a soothing ambiance, with a great variety of treatment modalities available. Five stars. I'm hooked!

Judi is extremely intuitive, knows without asking by feel which muscles or tendons are sore or need work. She goes beyond deep tissue and medical massage, and is skilled in structural integration to help with posture AND pain issues. Has an uncanny knack based on her expert background in kinesiology, personal training, and multiple modalities of massage therapy, for isolating causes of problems and FIXING them. Thanks, Judi.

My dad is a believer! I had to drag my dad into this appointment to get help with his shoulder-- doctors had offered him medication, shots and a serious prospect for surgery before I insisted that he try massage therapy first. He was very reluctant before the appointment but after he was a believer! Judi was wonderful! She made my father feel like a new man-- his shoulder did not hurt anymore and he could lift it big! Now we can't stop him from working in the yard! By the way--- my dad is 81. I would highly recommend Judi to all!

Judi has a wealth of knowledge that she shares as it pertains to my improving overall health and well being. Judi has a quite and gentle manner as she carefully assessed my physical condition, for me it's bone density issues that need strengthening. Judi skillfully began to realign my posture. Instantly I notice improvements. I give Judi five gold stars! I will continue to go back to see her.

I have been having regular bodywork for over thirty years and Judi ranks in the very top tier of therapists. She displays a very thorough knowledge of her craft with an emphasis on the therapeutic benefit for her clients. Judi has excellent communication skills that allow her to quickly focus her efforts in ways that produce the best outcome. If you are looking for a therapist with a true passion for her profession and an applied skill level that is second to none, I would highly recommend Judi at Restorative Pathways.

I was extremely impressed with the professional treatment and knowledge that I received from Judi Kempf. I live in California and have had many deep tissue messages and was never "reminded" of past sports injuries. Judi was able establish where my issues were and begin the healing process. A TRUE Message Therapist....Wish she was in San Diego!

I have had three massages with Restorative Pathways over the past three months. All three have been incredibly helpful, enjoyable, and informative as to the areas in my body that need some attention. Judi provides a warm and soothing environment, and is eager to answer any questions related to your choice of a particular massage, and what exactly she is doing to alleviate any discomfort or pain. I highly recommend her services and expertise if you are looking for a satisfying, effective, and wonderfully relaxing professional massage.

Judi Kempf continually gives me the best massages I've ever had...and I've been treated to some 100 massages all over the world. Her knowledge of the human body is unmatched. This gives her the ability to pinpoint and work on my problem areas. As a result, I am substantially more flexible and virtually pain-free. In short, Judi is extremely pleasant, very professional, uncommonly gifted, and totally committed to her craft. The progress I'm making is incredible; I am glad I found Restorative Pathways Bodywork & Massage. --BG (RET) Bob Decker
