I did a craniosacral appointment and it was fantastic. Afterwards I felt completely relaxed, noticeably more balanced and aware of my body, and I actually noticed right after the session my vision improved in my left eye a little, which is great because my left and right eyes don't track together and my left eye has poor vision. I will definitely be booking again.

I was visiting in Lawrenceville for a couple of weeks and I needed a licensed lymphatic drainage therapist. I had an amazing appointment. Giselle's is wonderful, kind and exudes peace. The moment you meet her your business of the day seems to fall away. Once your in the massage room and relaxing for a few moments alone you are in completely at ease and rest. Within minutes I could feel the swelling in my lower extremities, the lymph fluid in my left arm and congestion in my chest (major problem areas due to surgery & focus area for treatment) began to flow like a trickling stream from those areas. It felt as if Giselle was guiding the lymph fluid in the direction it was meant to go. It was amazing!!! By the time my session was over my left leg was almost the size as my right ( no drainage issues on my right side). It has been two weeks since my session with Giselle I have not needed to see my therapist and my body is maintain it's symmetry. Which means my lymphatic fluid is not collecting and my lymphatic system is operating as it should. I highly recommend Giselle. You will not be disappointment. I found her prices to be reasonable for the Atlanta area. Thank you again Giselle!

I bought a package of 6 lymphatic massages coupled with cupping after liposuction and breast reduction surgery. Not sure what to expect. Giselle was fantastic! I got great results. It reduced my swelling dramatically and as a whole, I felt so much better. She incorporated a neck and face treatment as well and I could breathe better as it treats sinuses as well. Definitely recommend for everyone!

Giselle's expertise at a therapeutic back massage and facial massage was so beneficial. I could hardly walk from back pain. After the massage the relaxation enable me to walk without pain. The facial massage with cupping eliminated all the swelling around my eye from eyelid surgery. It was amazing.
