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.

I've been going to Cara weekly for a couple years now and just cannot say enough nice things. She has helped me through several sports injuries and continues to keep me in top shape and out doing the sports and activities I love to do. Feedback and communication with your therapist is key to getting the most out of your therapy and Care excels at this.

My experience was great. Cara was friendly and professional. She made me feel very welcome and put me at ease. She asked me questions about my massage preferences and expectations about our session. She also explained her technique before starting. She gently checked-in from time to time during the massage to make sure I was comfortable and also that hot stones and pressure were right.

Cara did an amazing job at getting to know background information on aches and pains prior to the massage session. She pinpointed areas during the massage to relieve my sore shoulders and lower back.

I have received deep tissue massage and neuromuscular therapy, craniosacral therapy, and heated stone massage from Cara for severe TMJ, back and neck pain, and anxiety. I came to her because she teaches at a respected massage school and have found her expertise and knowledge to be essential to my healing journey. Both she and her work are deeply calming and therapeutic and are helping to resolve my chronic pain and tension. She is fantastic!
