Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I had a great massage at A Caring Touch! Karen was great and definitely worked out some knots I had, I felt great after! Will definitely be back!

    The prenatal massage (I’m at 40 weeks) was absolutely amazing!! It really helped with my discomfort and stress levels. She knew how to have me positioned to be comfortable, and hit all the right spots!!

  • attentive to my specific needs

    I've been going to Karen for over 10 years for various aches and pains and just to simply feel better. Not only is she an excellent masseuse, she is also a true professional. I trust her completely to not only discover any trouble spots, but also to use just the right techniques to relieve any issues that she finds. Karen is not only highly skilled in her craft, she's also just a genuinely nice person, approachable, and easy to chat with. She makes the entire experience easy and comfortable. Highly recommended!

  • The massage room was a little colder than I would have preferred but I can overlook this because Karen is great and really takes her time.

    The ambiance in the room really was not great. There was blaring light coming through the window, sheets were old and uncomfortable. Massage therapist couldn’t have been nicer but she was late and seemed stressed. I wouldn’t recommend a caring touch, there are better places around town.

  • Karen was wonderfully professional. I was quite stressed before the message, and she did a fabulous job to make sure I was relaxed before I left. I would absolutely recommend her.

    Karen was fantastic. Very calm, welcoming and easy to talk to. The massage session was very relaxing. I am planning on scheduling again in the future

Business response:

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you didn't like your massage. I will work on fixing the window and while I did recently upgrade my sheets, I will take your information into account to track down any abnormalities. Your feedback is quite helpful so I can improve my service. Thank you.
