Overall the experience was just what I needed and I'm looking forward to the next time. My only "complaint" is that I'd prefer commercial-free music playing in the background. Even though I otherwise enjoy the genre of music that was played during session, I prefer music w/out lyrics and commercial messages during a massage so that my thoughts can settle.

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.

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.
