I just recommended Bene Massage to a friend looking for help with carpal tunnel. I trust Tracey to make me feel relaxed and to help my aches and injuries. I'll be back.

Tracy creates a safe and relaxing environment and met me where I was at and really took the time to pay attention to what I needed. Her Body Awareness Therapy really helped me tune into myself and she gave me tools to continue self-care and self-connection. It truly was a wonderful experience.

Tracy is the best and most effective massage therapist I have ever experienced. I have received massages from her for 15 years. With her intuitive touch and highly skilled techniques, she ALWAYS helps me feel better. I recommend her to everyone!!!! Whether you are looking for relaxation or have been in a car accident (and everything in between), she will help you accordingly.

Love the extra heating pad on the back, Just the right amount of pressure to be enjoyable and therapeutic at the same time, Looking forward to my next visit!!!

The room was kind of cold, and without a heated massage table, it was noticeable. I chose not to say anything, though because it wasn't extreme. I think you do a good job of making the room peaceful given its proximity to the street and sidewalk, but sometimes the noise is noticeable. Also, when you peek above the curtain, you can see the bottom of the condo resident's window above. I always wonder if someone could peek down into the massage room. Could eliminate this by hanging your curtains higher. Overall, though, you and your skills are great. And you really listen and follow up.
