Giselle made me feel very comfortable post-surgery and provided instant relief. She is knowledgeable and thoughtful, explaining every step of the process so I knew what to expect. I re-booked on the spot!

OMG Giselle on my first visit talked with me for about 10 minutes to understand things my body needed. She is so professional and really helped me with my Lymphatic massage. I'm booking again this next week because I can see and feel how that massage is helping me.

I always leave feeling so much better than I arrived. Giselle is patient and very caring. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

Giselle is AMAZING. After my Lipo procedure I had hard scar tissue build up and it was a bit painful. I went to another “ “massage therapist” for a Lympatic drain massage and I left in tears from the pain when the LDM should not be painful. The following day I was bruised and in more pain. I then went to the Giselle and she was like a gift from God. She was gently, thorough. The following day of seeing Giselle my pain had already decreased. After 2 visits the hardening was diminishing and the soreness was pretty much non existing. She was amazing. I would refer her to any and everyone as she was amazing. Thank you for my a wonderful experience.
