I've been a regular customer for more than a year. I'm an athlete, so my body is always sore and tight from various intense activities. I appreciate Cara's focus on therapeutic treatment and her ability to relive my aches and tension. She spends time to understand what areas of my body need attention, and explains stretches and techniques that I have used to become less achy and much more relaxed than before I became her patient.
