I love the privacy of her home and the relaxed atmosphere it offers. Barbara always takes the time to get in tune with you, your mind and body before the massage begins. She is very caring, very knowledgeable and answers many of my questions. It is a wonderful calming experience and the benefits are beautiful! Thank you Barbara!

Whether you need a massage for therapeutic reasons or just for overall health maintenance, Barbara will melt away any stress or pain in your body. She senses where your tension is and works it out with steady, deep pressure. I would definitely recommend Barbara for your next massage.

Barbara has such a calm energy and provides a wonderful environment to relax in. She offered me aromatherapy and took the time to understand where my trouble zones were to be targeted in the session. I enjoyed every second and left feeling very relaxed and rejuvenated. Thanks Barb!

Barbara Darnell is a fairy princess who has come to this world from a land far, far away with the sole purpose of healing our back (or insert other body part here) pain. I had my first massage about two and a half years ago and, even though I knew Barb, I was EXTREMELY anxious about getting body work done, mainly because I am plus-size and am have a poor self body image. I have never been made to feel more comfortable in what could be a very uncomfortable situation. In addition, Barb is a muscle miracle worker. Not only does she pay attention to parts of the massage I enjoy (talk about a dreamy face/scalp massage), she also spends a lot of time on the problem areas that cause me the most day-to-day discomfort. Sometimes these parts of the massage are not-so-dreamy, but she really talks me through staying relaxed and breathing through the discomfort when dealing with the monstrous knots I get in my back. You aren't just paying for a massage, you are paying for healing and I wouldn't recommend anyone other than Barb. LOVE YA BARB!!!!

Excellent massage. I have fibromyalgia and have been getting weekly massages for years to make daily life less painful. Because of this, I am very hesitant to try new massage therapists. Barbara is very knowledgeable and is able customize each massage based on my needs that day. She has been able to go deeper than other massage therapists have by teaching me how to be more in touch with my breathing. This has allowed for more relief than I have gotten in the past. I look forward to my next massage!

I am a long-time client/fan of Barb's. I am never disappointed in a massage I receive from BodyWisdom PA, and I always leave her studio in a relaxed, peaceful state - mind and body both. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
