Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I just want to say thanks. This the one thing that I do for myself every month and I enjoy it so much. Keep up the great work I need it.

    Great experience. Highly recommend!

  • Love it. So relaxing and she helps get those knots loosened up. I’d recommend Ruth to everyone!

    I felt comfortable being able to express what I liked or did not. I was able to communicate openly at any time what muscle she was on and the pressure level that was being used. The massage therapist was knowledgeable about the muscles that I would inquire about during the massage.

  • The experience was very soothing and calming. It was exactly what I needed to relax and unwind.

    Even though it was my first time, the pressure was perfect without having to say a thing

  • Fantastic experience took time to actually find where I had the most pain & trouble with my back & hips. Took time to explain why I was overly fatigued in those areas. I absolutely felt some actual relief when her work was completed can’t wait for future appointments. Great fathers day gift from a wonderful & so thoughtful daughter. Thank u Tbug! & Thank u Ruth!

    I feel like a new person after my massage. You are truly amazing.

  • Ruth is a skilled professional. I leave feeling revitalized and relaxed.

    A wonderful experience. I had the integrated massage which gives you a little pampering besides just the massage. She really knew the muscle groups as I could feel her manipulate individual muscles especially along my shoulder blades. A Great Experience! I will be back and highly recommend Ruth Ranson!!
