I've been seeing Jennifer for a few years now, and go regularly. I honestly believe the massages help to maintain my health with an auto-immune disease. Her skill and professionalism is on display each and every time, and she never "calls it in". I am able to completely relax and allow her to do her work. She regularly tailors the massage to any areas I need help with and she checks in periodically to make sure the pressure is ok. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who wants a wonderful massage from a professional who is not chatty and allows you to relax and go into a very healing space. The experiences with her have truly enhanced my health.

Jennifer is absolutely amazing. I have a very intricate musculoskeletal issue going on, and even on the first visit, she was able to find things that others have not. I would highly recommend her to anyone with sports injuries, who need strong deep tissue work, as well as those who just want a relaxing massage.

I am not one that truly relaxes during a massage. I view a massage as a way of healing the body and getting out the tension that has built into knots in my shoulders and back. But no matter the massage, whether it be deep tissue or relaxing, my mind is still going a mile a minute. Until Jennifer. Not only did she relax me enough that my mind shut up but she also put me to sleep three times. That is a miracle right there. No one else has ever been able to do that.

She pays attention to your needs - always asking for specific areas for her to work on AND she remembers your preferences....ie - not quite so firm here or more firm there.

I have been seeing Jennifer for quite a while now, getting a massage monthly. I am amazed as her skilled hands find my back muscle knots and slowly knead them out. When I come in with certain areas of concern, Jennifer hones in on them. Over a year ago, I had shoulder surgery, Jennifer was a major factor with my speedy recovery, taking time to work on that area so movement and freedom came fast. Thanks! Karen

This young lady is excellent for deep tissue massage. I was looking for relaxation massage, which I checked, but there is so much wrong with my body, she tried to address some problems. Too painful for an old lady like me....although I probably needed it!

Business response:

Oh no! I am so sorry! I never want anyone in pain. Thank you for your honest review and kind words.
