Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great customer service and skills!

    I walked out of my session with less pain and increased range of motion. The treatment room is strongly scented, so avoid if you are sensitive at all.

  • Brenda was very kind and knowledgeable. She shared what movement she was going to perform and why. I appreciated learning more as she was completing my first lymphatic drainage massage. Her space is warm and inviting, I'm looking forward to my next session!

    Brenda is very skillful and creates a nice environment in the space. I will definitely be back again

  • The ambiance is soothing & Brenda will tailor the massage to meet your needs. Her technique is wonderful…I’m definitely going back!

    Brenda is incredible at her job!!!!

  • Office just open still decorating

    My initial visit was thorough and informative. Looking forward to visiting again!

  • Easy to set up appointment.

    I discovered and scheduled the Thai massage session based on the Massage Book reviews. I was hoping to get a little release in the leg muscle tension/pain I have had for the last 3-4 weeks, due to restarting a regular weekly exercise routines. I hoped for a slight change in my tension/pain but the next day surprised me with about a 90% improvement/relief in the tension/pain I experienced. I’m addition to the Thai massage session, I received suggestions on stretches to reduce the recurrence of future injury. I strongly recommend Brenda Bodywork.

Business response:

Many thanks for your honest review! I am happy to hear that you experienced the benefits of massage after your session. Aromatherapy is useful for helping the down regulation (relaxation) of our nervous system, but I understand if it is not a preference or actually does the opposite for some people. I will add "No Aromatherapy or Strong Scents" as a free add on to my sessions. You can select this when you schedule your session. Thank you for the feedback.
