RUTH HESSE

Competent, Caring, Effective Therapeutic Massage

I am an artist (ruthhesse.com), so I knew before I graduated from massage school that I wanted to create my own unique massage practice.  While I have also worked for others, my primary focus has been building a business that nourishes me, as well as helping others.  I offer a very down-to-earth massage experience.  More often than not, I play mellow pop or old jazz during the massage, rather than the standard atmospheric music sprinkled with pan flutes and whale song.  I try to create a warm... more

Ruth always keeps it fresh and interesting. She's not afraid to try new techniques to address my many tight and sore spots. Her elbow is my best friend.

I liked how much Ruth taught me about what she was doing and why and I also liked her wonderful, open communication style. She is also incredibly skilled and thorough. It was really the best massage I've ever had!

Ruth was so nice and welcoming, intense and thorough work for sure, but with a very relaxed and personable vibe, seemed really concerned for my comfort. Really great experience, recommended to friends and looking forward to the next one!

I'm not the most body conscious of persons, but I know that when I've been working/sitting too much or start to feel tight or achy, Ruth will find the knots and undue them. I walk straighter and I move easier because of her skills!

Ruth is a lovely massage therapist who truly listens to me and addresses my specific needs. Even after tackling my knots from running and strength training with deep tissue massage therapy, she still makes sure I leave feeling completely relaxed and blissed out, as if I had received a Swedish massage from a spa. She's amazing!!
