REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Karen on Dec 23
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!

Lela clearly knows her stuff and she is able to quickly figure out the sources of my pain and discomfort and put together a plan to help me manage it. She makes me feel so much more hopeful in managing my chronic spinal issues and overcoming persistent nerve issues and returning to an active life. Regular treatment from Lela has become a pillar of my health routine.

No doubt that Ms. White was exactly what I needed for my back. Her thorough knowledge of sports injuries and their remedies provides great confidence in her skills and in her approach to my therapy. Thanks!

Lela was very thorough with her massage and gave an informative summary of her findings at the conclusion of my session. Very helpful!

Lela was able to very thoroughly and deeply provide a massage. I really appreciate a high amount of pressure, and I've truly not been in such a deep state of relaxation by the end of a session before. It was the first time I've had my obliques worked on too, and while there was a lot of deep and hard pressure the whole session, I felt great in the hours and days after. She also has a lot of knowledge to offer in explaining anatomy and what she's doing.
