Theresa Howell is truly one of the best therapists I have ever seen. In three sessions she has helped my body release tension and I am detoxing like I have never detoxed before. Her understanding of how the body, emotions, and brain work together sets her apart from many other massage therapists. Simply top notch.

This was my first experience with cupping, and although I have some dark marks today (day after) I feel so much better! I've been under a lot of stress and you can see that in my visual results. I feel like some of the weight I have been carrying around with me has been released and I look forward to that experience again! Thank you Theresa for helping me relax! I would recommend anyone to go see Theresa, she is a wonderful person and very skilled at her craft.

Theresa is amazing at what she does! She knows/has/and continues to learn and study the body and understand what is best for it to work properly and painless. Her techniques always make me feel amazing - I love that she also does a light stretch which is needed always and sometimes difficult to obtain on my own. Just to be around her gives you a sense of calmness and joyful aura. You will never be disappointed with her massages!

OMG!!! I have had chronic neck and back pain for about 12 years and have gone to countless massage therapists. Theresa is the BEST in the business. She is very professional and has a keen awareness of where your pain is. I did the cupping and massge session and it has helped my pain for close to two weeks! your body will thank you if you see Theresa!

I appreciated that Theresa made time in the session to listen to what I needed out of the massage and asked me questions. She also took the time to explain to me what she was going to do over the next hour and half and how the cups would feel and benefit me as well as what to expect after. I wasn't sure I would like the cups as an add on for Massage but someone referred me and it helped them more than just deep tissue massage. After getting the cupping I have to strongly agree with that and equally recommend anyone to get cupping from Theresa Howell. Her knowledge, skill and compassion is hard to find when getting a quality massage in this area. Well worth it. Thank you.

I have never left a massage feeling as satisfied as I do since i've met Theresa. She knows exactly what to do and explains thoroughly what is going on as she works that area. She's knowledgeable and always smiling, and she's very personable and that's important to me. It shows that she really cares about what she does.
