Barbara is a very warm, compassionate and highly skilled Therapeutic Massage Therapist. Her highest aim is to relieve tension, pain and stress and to promote a feeling of well-being. I would highly recommend Barbara Conti

I liked the progression of the massage, starting with the feet instead of the back. I appreciated the special attention to my problem areas, which I didn't even realize were problem areas. I feel absolutely great today, and that's never been the case before. Usually a feeling of euphoria hangs on for a few hours, and that's all.

Barb is fantastic! (and so is everyone else there)!!! She's warm, welcoming, and genuine with brilliant massage techniques that work wonders! She's a wealth of knowledge with regards to complementary medicine and she's GREAT with communication so you get the depth of therapy you need. Very clean and comfortable surroundings, I start to relax just entering the office. I've been coming for a year and have no interest in going elsewhere. GREAT prices for fabulous service with genuine people in comfortable surroundings sums it up.

I have gone to various massage therapists to deal with problems resulting from scoliosis and spinal fusion. Barb is by far the best! My only recommendation is...don't ever retire!
