Gayla Cocullo

Peace does not mean to be in a place where this is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.

The perfect job is one that you look forward to everyday.  Massage therapy never feels like work to me. My primary passion is helping my clients improve their quality of life. I am always looking for more ways to provide better therapy.

I attended and graduated from the highly acclaimed Georgia Massage School.  I learned under two of the top Instructors in the United States, Laurie Craig and Rick Garbowski.  They have both won top awards and the highest recognition as educators and professiona...

The way Gayla massages is very therapeutic and intuitive. She found all my problems without me having to tell her and worked on them until relief. She listened very well and customized the massage to my needs and preferences. In just one session the pain in my neck and shoulders was gone, which took a lot of work, I have a lot of tension. She can go very deep while incorporating soothing touch. I highly recommend her.

I utilize Gayla for a 90 minute massage on a regular and it's the best 90 minutes! She has a wonderful way of listening and responding to my muscles and my normal "aches and pains" that I have by utilizing her skilled massage techniques. You will never be disappointed. Everyone should feel this renewed and refreshed!

Being 71 years old and Gayla's mother, natually she gets highest of praise from me. Having the status of old and wise also allows me to say she is so good at what she does. Thank you Gayla for a fantastic job!

Thank you Gayla. I went and bought that Arnicare cream you recommended yesterday. Although I am tender from where you had to break up those chunks of gravel, I am sure I feel better because of it. Can't wait for next week!

I wanted a massage therapist to get relief from my daily stresses and frustrations. Gayla is a good therapist. She was able to create a nurturing and healing experience for me, not just a massage. Gayla was able to project a sense of empathy, caring and support. If your personality type is more practical or even cynical Gayla is perfect either way. I must say i was very pleased and will recommend her to any and everyone.

Gayla is very professional and made me feel very comfortable during my massage. The room is very soothing which immediately relaxes the body. The heated table and heated towels is a very nice touch and made me feel very cozy. I have had issues with stress and tension in my back, neck and shoulders and she has always been able to pin point the problem and fix the issue. I highly recommend Gayla and look forward to my next visit!
