REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Hannah on Jul 07
perfect deep pressure, intuitive, relaxing everything was over the top fantastic. best massage ever! Kelly you are awesome!!! Thank you, Thank you
by Brandi on May 14
Kelly listened to my concerns and goals for my session and incorporated everything really well into the massage. His technique is amazing, and he released tension I have not been able to get rid of in a very long time. Being my first deep tissue massage, I did not know what to expect and would have liked more information about pressures and effects afterwards. All around an incredible experience though and I will be going back!
