A few months ago Lara started regularly working on my knees and legs with the Hendrickson Method. I'm missing cartilage and will eventually need knee replacements, and my knees hurt whenever I put weight on them. My subsequent change in posture and gait has led to other issues. I greatly appreciate that Lara pays close attention to what my body and I "tell" her as she manipulates my legs. She also takes time to explain what is happening. Her work has led to improved alignment and decreased inflammation, which has helped to increase my mobility some.

I wish she had a better dialogue with me during the massage about pressure, especially after I asked her to change the style of massage that wasn't working for me. She had good skill but it wasn't what I was looking for to feel relaxed after a really hard week of working out. I felt frustrated to spend so much money on a massage that was less than stellar. Hope it was just a fluke.

Business response:

Thank you for your feedback. I was not aware at the end of our session that you were dissatisfied with the work. I pride myself on communication with my clients but I don't always get it right. Please contact me for a refund.
