Giselle is a fabulous massage therapist. She tailors every session to the client's needs on that particular day. I was long overdue for a massage, and my arthritic neck was suffering. After a cupping massage, I felt 100% better. Giselle is extremely talented, professional and kind. I highly recommend her for all different levels of massage.
