Mija is very attuned to what needs to be addressed. She always leaves me feeling like I'm in "slow mo", I'm so relaxed. Recently she assessed some trauma I'm going thru, formulating some flower essences to help with my stress. I highly recommend Mija!

Mija was amazing!!! She has a truly unique approach to massage and healing. She knows the body intuitively as well as physically so can get to the root of pains, tightness, etc. I felt close to new when i left and could barely turn my head to both sides when i'd gotten there. Thank you Mija and i'm so grateful to have found you!!!

Other than getting a relaxing massage, I wasn't sure what to expect. But I definitely had an enjoyable experience. From the moment I was greeted and to the very end of my session, Mija had this positive energy that left me with a warm heart and positive vibes as well. I was so amazed with the way she was able to communicate with my body without me saying a word. I love that she took some time to ask me questions, which I believe helped her to understand what my body needed. I had issues with my right leg and I'm so glad she spent some time on that area. Mija not only released some tension on my body physically but also mentally removed some knots that were a little heavy in my heart and my mind. Thank you so much!
