My massage from Alyse was the best I've ever had. I've had a different masseuse every time I went to get a massage in search of one who really knows what they are doing. I have finally found one. The environment is great also, good music and feels like home. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

I’m from New York and have not been able to find a good knowledgeable massage therapist in Michigan in the 3 years I’ve been here. FINALLY I found Alyse! ( I was referred by another happy client of hers). Alyse has everything I look for in a massage therapist- she’s personable, a good listener, knowledgeable and personalized my massage to my individual health concerns. The ambiance was wonderful, very relaxing, peaceful and comfortable. Great overall experience- I’ll definitely go back!

Ms. Leidich is highly knowledgeable and thorough. After a summer of me decluttering my garage and home in preparation for family & holidays, I had over worked several major muscle groups. In 90 minutes, two months of over exertion were powerfully eased by Me Leidich's expertise. Woke up the next day feeling 100 percent!

This is not your typical massage. Alyse is a master of her craft. I truly felt like a new man after my first 90 minute session. She has an excellent fund of knowledge and is quite strong to boot. This results in a great massage, targeting the muscles that need targeting, and fixing the problems you knew you had and the ones you didn't. I will definitely be returning to "A hard knot life," and will definitely be referring friends and family to her.

Was welcomed and felt very comfortable since this was outside of my “box”. I went for muscle and neck pain and was a bit skeptical this would help. Low and behold, the next day I felt 59% relief! Can’t wait for the next appointment!
