Diane is an amazing body worker! She helped me to feel completely at ease during my first session; I went home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated -- as if I had a second wind! -- for the first time in months. I look forward visiting Diane regularly!

Diane's combination of strengths in therapeutic and medical massage were highly evident in the amazingly effective one hour massage she gave me. I had planned it to be a one time event, but changed my mind and will be getting a massage monthly now with Diane. Wish I could afford every week!

Diane is extremely welcoming, thorough and yet has a professional manner. She is easy to talk to, always asks if there are any particular issues that need attention, provides a caring, relaxing experience, and is genuinely not just interested in her clients' well-being, but is quietly passionate about her work. She demonstrates flexibility in her availability and willingness to accommodate clientele, regulars and first-timers as well.
