  • It was very relaxing and a lot of my kinks got worked out, felt great afterwards

    I had great experience!

Business response:

I'm so sorry about this. I normally make a point to freshen my breath before every client, whether I've had a sip of coffee, eaten or had the occasional smoke. Obviously, this didn't happen prior to your treatment. I wish you would have felt comfortable enough to say something and I could have rectified it at the time. Thanks for the feedback. And again, my apologies.

Elliott’s place of business on Fourth St. is impressive. He has parking, a new deck, a quaint waiting room with literature, two therapy rooms plus a kitchen and bath. It’s very welcoming and comfortable. Elliott gives ???? percent of his time, energy and patience to your shiatsu session.

I liked how relaxing it was, it’s very hard for me to relax but right when I walked in I felt at ease.. When I left I felt refreshed in a different way than I normally feel after a Western massage.. my mind didn’t feel as cluttered. I will defiantly be adding this to my monthly routine.

Signage and entrance need improvement, but I understand they have just very recently, moved into this new space, and it is winter. Jonathan met me at the door and was punctual.

Business response:

Yes, the new deck and steps has yet to be built due to winter weather conditions. Once that is done, the new sign will be attached to the building. Thanks for the feedback. Also, I appreciate your comments as you left after your session and that you enjoyed the Hot Stone Massage that you received from Jonathan.

The building is very old but is being fixed up. The room and table were nice and warm.

Business response:

It's a great old building. It's actually an 1860s Lincoln-Era Italianate located in the Old Aristocracy Hill historic area of town . It will take some time to get it completely restored. Glad you found the interior warm and inviting.

Elliott has worked wonders on my shoulder. I am also going to a physical therapist who really wasn't able to do much with me cause I was in so much pain.
