Impressive as always. Najet's knowledge of the body is incredible, I feel like I get more from speaking with her than my doctor.

I have a few improvements I want to make with my range of mobility. Najet has been able to diagnose the cause, and I have so far seen tremendous progress. Najet is observant and delivers! Note. Her job is not meant to be pain-free. Your job as a client is to do your homework and continue from where she started. She lays an excellent foundation.

Najet is a Miracle Worker! I'm hesitant to let anyone give me a massage because I have fibromyalgia and chronic rheumatoid arthritis. Najet is very conscious and knowledgeable on how she treats my body. Mobility in my neck has greatly improved, which is a very big deal for me. After a short time, I realized I was in less pain & my blood labs were improved. Najet can touch me and knows which muscles are tight and proceed to release the pain. I highly recommend Najet for any type of pain relief. Her whole concept is to heal the body and she's very successful in doing just that. If you are looking to improve body pain, Nejet is your gal.
