Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Awesome!

    Excellent service. Very professional. High quality place that I will definitely go to again.

  • Thank you so much for my massage yesterday! I feel so much better!

    Wonderful experience

  • Loved all of it!

    Keri is very knowledgeable about what she does. I have had a lot of experience having massages because of chronic pain I have had for almost 20 years. She was the first person to put heat on my back and feet while she massaged the rest of me, which made those areas much more relaxed and ready for deeper massage. She also did some active release, which was extremely effective. She is very calming and easy to talk to. The room is beautiful and nicely lit. The music is very calming.

  • Keri is so knowledgeable and is helping me so much with my hip and leg problems.

    Very relaxing. The muscles in my back and neck were more relaxed.

  • very calm environment

    I am so glad to be serviced by Ms Keri and the atmosphere is wonderful. Thank you

She made me feel very comfortable. She worked with my problem areas where I have a lot of tension from a car wreck and I walked out feeling a lot better!

Keri was very thorough discussing my problem areas and preferences. She made me feel very comfortable. I appreciated that she didn't overuse oil/lotion and it was unscented. My neck and shoulders felt nicely stretched without feeling beat up. I really enjoyed this experience - especially since it was my birthday! Already scheduled to go back!

Keri greeted me with a warm smile and she was absolutely amazing! She was professional in her demeanor, but also warm and friendly in putting you so at ease. She made sure to understand what it was I wanted out of this experience, and though I have had several other massages, they did not even compare to the quality of this one....I have shared my wonderful experience with other and am looking forward to my next appointment with her!

I've visited Keri three times now, and for the first time in probably 4 years I have no pain whatsoever. I have full range of motion in my neck and feel like a normal human being. I can enjoy life and not worry about when the next headache is coming. I believe she's my angel and has healing hands! I would and have recommend her serviceS to anyone and everyone! There's nothing to dislike. I only wish massage work would be covered by insurance, but I'm willing to give up other things to work the massages in.

Keri is absolutely amazing. I suffer from headaches and multiple neck/shoulder/upper back pain that can be debilitating at times. I've dealt with this at a high intensity for a year. I've tried Physical Therapy, yoga, medications, counseling, oils, and other massage therapists. All of those have offered some relief, although temporary. At my wits end, ready to give up, I decided to try Nelson Massage. Keri is was so knowledgable and initially did an interview to find out what techniques I've tried in the past, what worked and what didn't. The ambiance was very calming and the establishment very clean. She's always ready for me as soon as I get there. As long as I'm up to it, She's willing to try unique techniques for my personal situation. She works to find my trigger spots and knows where they are, even when I don't.
