One of the most challenging things is seeking the help that you know you need to heal. This is even more challenging for Black bodies. I deeply appreciate Ms. Sharonda's unapologetic commitment to providing a safe space for Black folks to breathe - and do their work. After two sessions, I am already experiencing a huge difference in how my body releases stress. This could not happen in any other setting, with any other person. Ms. Sharonda exemplifies radical self-care in action.

I have and will continue to tell all of my loved ones that a regularly scheduled session with Sharonda is essential to living their best life. Sharonda intentionally curated a safe, inviting, grounding, healing space in which to learn, grow, and teach toward my highest and healthiest self. My first of many massage sessions with Sharonda exceeded my expectations. Massage is intimate and you must connect on a spiritual level with the practitioner in order to fully immerse into the healing space. Sharonda connected organically with her organized, professional, , thorough, and peaceful intake process and she brought home the healing through her powerful, skilled, and controlled touch. I could feel her desire for my highest healing in each touch and transition. It was everything I desired and I am so grateful to have found her offering.

I booked a lay-there-and-relax for an hour. It started with an intake conversation with Sharonda about what to expect etc. That conversation set a tone of trust for the next hour, which I really appreciated because it allowed me not to be too nervous during the massage. The massage itself felt SO nice and I left feeling very relaxed and de-stressed. It wasn't too painful nor was it too gentle. It also lasted as long as advertised. We finally had a post-massage conversation that was useful because I got to ask where I should pay attention to my body. All in all, I found Sharonda was extremely competent and I left feeling only good feelings. Will be going back soon.
