I Make People Happy!

When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them I make people happy.  I have been a massage therapist for 18 years.  Before massage I worked in the Legal and Medical field....but nothing makes me happier than making people happy.  I have had the pleasure of working with dignitaries, celebrities and professional athletes, but nothing gives me more satisfaction than helping people achieve comfort and peace in their day to day life.  I'm not a miracle worker (even though some say I am!) b... more

I felt like a baby taken care of and felt asleep on the massage table like a baby :), even though Zelda's strong hands were sinking deep into every tissue of my body.

I went for a deep tissue or sports massage on my legs. The lady was very nice but she did not have the strength to give a massage. No intention of being offensive but it was a bit of a waste of time

A friend of mine recommended Zelda and I have no regrets. A stiff neck problem was killing me since Monday morning... I could barely move my neck and every attempt was very painful. I went to Zelda on Wednesday for a 30-minute deep tissue massage and my neck felt so much lighter and relaxed afterwards. Room was very nice and clean. I definitely recommend her services.

Extremely convenient location, appointment easy to schedule. Liked that Zelda didn't talk during the massage and let me enjoy and relax. She was very friendly before and after. I felt really good after the massage, and would need to come one day when I am very stressed to appreciate the benefits to the fullest.

I have been seeing Zelda since 2008. She sets the standard by which I measure all massage therapists the world over. Very few compare to her skill and ability to adapt to the unique needs of your body. She knows a wide variety of techniques and will combine them as needed to help you accomplish your massage therapy goals.
