Gayle is an amazing massage therapist.

I had an amazing experience and the fact that she worked me in her schedule on short notice when I desperately needed it says a lot. I can’t wait til next month which I’ve already scheduled!

This massage was so great! She knew stretches and moves to help me get out of neck and back pain. I have never had such an awesome massage! She is kind and professional. Asks questions about your preferences and health. The gym music is loud, and you can hear it while you get your massage so it changes the ambiance.

My massage with Gayle was excellent! The areas of concern were addressed with just the right amount of pressure. The environment and music were nice and comfortable. I would definitely recommend Gayle if your looking for a professional and even flow massage.

My experience with SoZo Massage was totally amazing. Every minute was well spent. I've had quite a few massages over the years. By far that was the best one ever. Gayle was professional. courteous, knowledgeable. And I will tell all my friends, and I purchased 3 gift certificates for 3 of my friends including my husband because I want them to experience what I experienced. She also gave me some recommendations for my cramps, and aching rotator cuff surgery recovery. Thanks, Gayle
