Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying

    Emily IS THE BEST

  • Very professional atmosphere and services . Highly recommend 5 Starz

    Extremely relaxing, and was highly impressed by Emily. She found sore spots I didn't know we're sore, and gave me some tips to avoid irritation again. I really liked starting face up, allowing my back to absorb the heat to be worked later. I was impressed with the sound control of outside ambient noise - didn't hear a thing! My first massage with her and I'll definitely be back.

  • I’ve been seeing Emily for awhile now after going around town trying to find someone that knows what they are doing. I found a lot of people that just made me feel like I was another dollar to them. Emily really cares about how you feel and wants to help you. She is great, you should definitely give her a try.

    Emily is the best! Very skilled and professional.
