Sheila listens to the problem areas and willingly customizes the massage for exactly what I want and/or need. I always leave her table in much better shape than when I got there. I have had many, many massages over the years but Sheila is truly the best!!!

Over the years I have experienced several different massage therapist. Sheila is a true professional. She is extremely knowledgeable about the human body and brings value to my session by sending me home with suggestions on stretches or exercises to help maintain my health, and ways to reduce inflammation and stress. I have been coming to Sheila for 7 years and she has never gotten complacent. She still does a thorough prelim and asks about pressure and temperature during each session. Sheila goes above and beyond to make my experience comfortable and exceptional.
