Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great first appointment with Marisa! She honed in on exactly what my body needed. Already booked my next appointment, thanks Marisa!

    She is an outstanding massage therapist!

  • I give Marissa 100/10 stars! She does an outstanding deep tissue massage!

    Marisa is the best!

  • Marisa is the best!

    Marisa is a very skilled and intuitive massage therapist. The first time I saw her I was having issues with plantar fasciitis and she worked on the muscles in my foot. Afterwards, I realized that I was walking with significantly less pain and a more normal gait. I highly recommend Marisa!

  • Marisa was great - very kind, thorough and professional! I initially booked because I was gifted a massage but now I definitely plan to schedule more appointments.

    Marisa is an amazing massage therapist! She found more knots in me than I even knew existed. I felt sooooo much better afterward and although the knot releasing wasn't always pleasant, it was so worth it. I highly recommend Marisa and will see her again when I return to Vermont for my next visit! You will not be disappointed! Doreen Del Col

  • Marisa listened to my concerns and really worked my problem areas. She was patient with her work and listened to my body and what it needed. I felt so much better after our fist session. I immediately booked another session. So happy to find a massage therapist that is not only skilled but also intuitive.

knowledgeable, and skilled professional. It's been along time since I was able to get a massage. I have areas that are chronic issues and I am very tight, and these were well addressed. Marisa was skilled at working on these areas and made sure that the amount of pressure used was enough without being too much. I felt much more mobile following her work! I will be going back for sure!

Marissa came recommended and I was very happy with my first session. She didn't just do her routine. She asked many questions first and understood the style, pressure, and areas of focus before she began. I wasn't crazy about the location and lack of a waiting area, but the quality of the session was great. I'm going back.

Marisa is an extremely talented massage therapist. She was very conscience about asking what type of massage I wanted and degree of pressure. Personally, I have a lot of neck issues and she was absolutely fabulous at getting to the root of my tension. I would unequivocally recommend her! Linda Blair

Marisa is, in my opinion, one of if not the finest massage therapist' I've encountered anywhere since moving to Burlington in 1994. I prefer deep tissue work in which she is very talented and knowledgeable. Her new office space is comfortable, easily accessed by major roads and quiet. I also like her booking system ease of use and rate structure. So - all good!

I have been seeing Marisa for about two years now and won't see anyone else! She is warm, caring, and thoughtful. Marisa takes the time to get to know you personally and physically. She knows where I'm ticklish, where I like more pressure, and what techniques have given me the most relief over time. She even remembers what type of music I prefer during sessions. I highly recommend Marisa.

Marisa is a truly amazing massage therapist. I have neck and back tightness that were causing me to experience headaches fairly often. With regular massages with Marisa, the amount of headaches I have is less than half of what it used to be. She has such a warm and welcoming presence and makes you feel so comfortable throughout the session. Her ability for pressure and precision is so great that I don’t think I’ve ever left a massage with her feeling anything short of amazing.
