I have always wanted and enjoyed helping others.  As an elementary school child I was voted to be the next Mother Teresa.  I know that I am not Mother Teresa but she has inspired me in many ways.  My father suffered from ALS and after many years passed away, which helped me show compassion and understanding, as well as to help others in need.

I attended Sanford Brown Institute in Pittsburgh for massage therapy as well as Empire Beauty Schoo...

One of the best massages I have ever received. After talking with Carla she knew exactly how to work my problem areas and I feel great still a week later.

Loved everything about the massage! The place was very professional, clean, & had relaxing heated towels and heated table covers. Which makes getting a massage in cold weather that much more relaxing. Carla was fantastic!!

Carla was very knowledgeable and very professional. I enjoyed my massage I thought it could have had more pressure but I should have spoken up but I was not asked if the pressure was suitable. I love her choice of decorations in the treatment area. It did bother me when I was laying on the table and noticed the paint on the duct work/ceiling was peeling, especially because the building is old and I worry about asbestos and lead. It took away from the ambiance a bit and as a cancer survivor those rings are a concern for me. Also it was a bit noisy there was a photo shoot outside of the treatment areas. These are just critiques for you going forward. I really did enjoy my massage and Carla was very sweet. I would come back and I would recommend the service.

The therapist wan very kind and attentive. I did enjoy the calming feeling of the hot stones. I feel my back troubles respond better to deep tissue. I would definitely suggest this therapy to anyone.

Very relaxing and healing. Carla did a wonderful job. Talking with her after about the session was nice too. I suffer from nerve pain so massage isn't always the greatest thing for me. But reiki is very calm and soothing. I will definitely be back for more sessions. Thanks Carla!!

Carla is the most caring, concerned, professional therapist I have ever encountered. I deal with several health issues and she was understanding of them all, and made the experience very comfortable and relaxing. In addition she has shared her knowledge of Doterra Oils, which I have added to my daily routine! Thank you Carla!

Carla is an extremely professional and skilled massage therapist. She took her time targeting areas that needed additional work. I left my appointment feeling relaxed and refreshed. I highly recommend getting a massage from Carla. I will be booking another shortly.
