Giselle is the BEST. Been with her since I moved to Atl, which is nearly 20 years.

Giselle has been wonderful. I initially bought one lymphatic massage session for my post-lipo recovery, but I immediately bought a full package after our first session. Unless you're very tender and have a low pain tolerance, you need to get the Lymph Drainage massage WITH cupping. It really makes all the difference. Giselle is so kind, knowledgeable and I always leave feeling 10x better!

Very Good rather than Amazing.

I have been a client of Giselle as long as I can remember. She understands what my mind and body require on any given day. I love the combination of massage and cupping.

Things went well, the 90 minute massage achieved a lot more for me than the 60 minute. Will do another 90 minute session in December.

The cupping very much relieved pain and tension in my shoulder.
