REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Wellness services

Mija listens with her hands and gives amazing body work and energy work. She’s intuitive and professional. She finds all the spots I never even knew were an issue, and I leave feeling much more balanced!

Very good service

Mija has a great ability to "listen" to where your body really needs relief of pain and gets into the nooks & crannies of the underlining pain. I love how she uses various techniques and tools to get to the underlying problem.

Intuitive, knowledgeable and highly competent, Mija's work with me has allowed my body to overcome some chronic pains and imbalances when I was not gaining headway previously. Her business name of "Listening Touch" is accurate, as she has given me several highly personalized treatments which zeroed in on my body's needs. I highly recommend her, and I have been an HHP and bodyworker for several decades.

I've been going to Mija for massage a few years now and wouldn't consider anyone else. She is fantastic!

Mija is a beautifully talented and intuitive body worker. She assess the body as a whole (mind-body approach), which I ALWAYS appreciate! I am so blessed to have been referred to this gem of a human. I have been working with Mija on and off for a year now and I can honestly say she has helped me tremendously in my self-healing journey. Her intuition is incredible and helps facilitate the sessions beautifully. So grateful for you Mija!!!

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!!!
