Her massage always works out all the right spots-it's amazing. I am a very active person-running, biking, walking-so it is a must once a month

I loved the way Tracy actually rubbed with the stones, instead of just placing them. It was a delightful massage. I was just sorry when it was over!!! I look forward to the next one :) Thank you, Tracy!

Wonderful! Very intuitive therapist. Very effective without being traumatic. Tracy was able to fine tune her work to accommodate the fact that I would be racing the next day. I highly recommend! (I got second at nationals the next day..thrilled with that!)

Tracy is fantastic whether you just want a relaxation massage or are in need of deeper, more targeted body work. Very professional and focused. Love that there is no chit-chat during the session itself, only before or after session has started or concluded. She's great at finding the spots that need work and adjusting her touch to meet your needs. Highly, highly recommend.

Tracy is fantastic, she knows exactly what is needed ! I always feel so much better after my massage. The foot massage is wonderful, she used hot stones which feel glorious. I think I will get the sweet sole massage more often !

The one and only "dislike" would be hearing yoga participants outside the door every now and again. However, it's the studio I attend and therefore receive a discount annnnnnd it's not totally disturbing to the experience I just have an awareness of their presence, more often than not they are respectfully quiet. Plus I can receive a massage right after yoga so the benifit of that greatly outweighs the mild noise occurance.

Tracy really listens and gears the treatment to fit your needs. I had some major issues that were skillfully dealt with and I feel great even today, long after treatment. Tracy uses techniques, but always takes the time to think through what is really needed for her clients.
