REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Walter on Jul 07
Lela is great!
by Keith on Dec 29
My session with Lela was extremely first-rate! After a few intense weeks of work, I was in need of a serious sports massage to relieve all of the knots and tensions in my body. Lela is ultra-professional, extremely knowledgeable, talented, and nice. She explained everything very clearly. I wanted a deep, heavy touch and Lela easily provided this. I have had massages for decades. Lela’s was absolutely one of the finest that I have experienced. I left feeling quite relaxed and my muscle tension relieved. I can’t wait to return!

Lela did a fantastic job. She is very skilled and knowledgeable. She did a thorough consultation at the beginning with very thorough feedback after the message. She did a great job on all of my problem spots and provided feedback on the conditions with practical advice.

Lela has helped me understand how arthritis effects me and what I need to do to stay active. She is very professional and amazingly skilled at her job. I'm always impressed with just how great I feel after every session and how massage has helped me to continue to exercise daily. Thanks Lela!

Lela is an amazing therapist! Before the sessions she completely explains what's going to happen during the massage and why. Always listens and addresses whatever issues I'm dealing with very thoroughly.

Lela is one of my favorite therapists at Richmond Sports Massage. She explains everything in depth and uses clinical language without "talking down". It is kinda hard to get on her schedule though since she books out pretty far.
