REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

As someone who is extremely picky about massages, I am so incredibly happy with Tracy's work. She incorporated cupping therapy into the massage and brought a tremendous amount of relief to a really acute situation with my shoulder, neck and back. Thank you times a million!

This is about my 4th session with Tracy. She's wonderful. This time, I had a rather bad kink in my neck, which had been paining me all week. She really helped release it! Much better, and much better movement in the neck and shoulder area. Thank you!

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!

I have had a number of massages throughout my life but never from one person who I wanted to go back to regularly....until I met Tracy. She is incredibly professional, well versed and well skilled!

I know Tracy a little as a yoga friend from The Peoples Yoga. I have had many massages in my life and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Thanks so much, Tracy.

Intuitive and healing. Great attention to detail in the places I indicate as problem areas. I always leave feeling rejuvenated with greater movement in my body.
