Some Testimonials from Customers
I sustained multiple orthopedic and burn injuries in a motor vehicle accident that left me tense with pain and with permanent physical deficits. I was fortunate to be directed to Amy, who has employed a variety of techniques, including Swedish massage and lymph drainage, to address my problems with pain, scarring, swelling and muscle tension, to improve circulation, and to enhance my mobility. Amy is a lovely, positive and capable person and I feel very grateful to be in her care. I consider that I am able to live a normal, relaxed and happy life largely thanks to the healthy changes wrought by Amy.
Getting massages from Amy helps keep me balanced which makes it possible to keep up the hectic pace of my life.
I always look forward to going to Amy for a massage. Not only is the atmosphere of her office soothing and relaxing (I've almost fallen asleep before), but she also listens to me and my body on what I need that day; tailoring my treatment/massage to my needs instead of a set 'script.' I also really like the fact that she works with my doctors recommendations. I always leave in a good mood and feeling physically better than when I came in.
