REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Lela is amazing at shoulder issues. Partway through my frozen shoulder treatment, I started working with her. After every massage, my physical therapist would note amazing improvements.

Lela provides education to carryover on my own to improve my mobility and decrease my discomfort/pain.

I have often left Dr offices not knowing what exactly the problem or treatment plan was. With Lela, she is so professional and knowledgeable, she explains everything clearly and in a way I could understand. With her treatment plan I have no doubt I will be back to my normal exercise routine sooner rather than later, Thanks Lela

Lela has been my massage therapist now for about 7 years. Her knowledge, education, skills, professionalism and work ethic are outstanding. As a competitive athlete, massage therapy is a critical component of my recovery. From day one, Lela has had a unique intuitive ability to sense what is needed on each visit and provide it. She has kept me injury free and able to train consistently, which is a critical component to performance improvement.

EVERYTHING

She listens really well. In addition to everything else I had issues with, I walked in there with a knot in my neck the size of a ping pong ball. She went to town on it and when she released it I could have sworn I heard angels singing. ;-)

Any ache or pain is magically cured

I was referred to Lela by another therapist that was treating me for many years, but unfortunately, moved our of state. After only minutes of conversing, I knew lela was extremely knowledgeable. Lela did a very thorough assessment, understood my issues and picked right up where the previous therapist left off. She knew exactly what needed to happen. This first treatment was exceptional and I'm experiencing relief from my pain already. I signed up for 5 more 90 minutes sessions. Looking forward to being completely healed. Thank you Lela!
