    What my clients are saying about my work on

    Marissa J.

    I have battled having extremely stiff neck and shoulders throughout my life. I wasn’t sure what to expect at my first massage, but quickly realized I was in “good hands”. Nellie was very professional and after our consultation she knew exactly where to target the problem areas. The massage was different from others I have had in the past. Most massages I’ve had have never “fixed” any of my issues, only temporarily made them feel better. If your looking for a gentile, relaxing massage, I’m sure she can deliver the most amazing one if asked…. but her gift is for finding those trouble spots, (that’s why she’s the “knotfinder“) and she helps get the body working and moving the way it should! Prepare yourself for her healing hands! You won’t be disappointed!

I was suffering discomfort in my leg all the way down to ankle, heel, neck and shoulder…but Nellie took care of me with her skill and professionalism!! She also showed me how to stretch and It helps me a lot, Thank You Nellie!!

    Nellie was by far the best treatment I have ever had, she found my trouble spots immediately, and subsequently found many more that i was not aware of. Her experience and knowledge is very apparent, and she makes sure that the pressure is exactly where you want it to be. Absolutely going to be a regular client of Nellie’s

    Lauren T.

    LOVED everything!!!! Best thing I think I’ve ever done for my body and definitely will continue going to Nellie. Have already recommended her to family and friends. She truly studies and takes her time to find your trigger points and release the pain/pressure wherever you’re having issues. I could go on and on with positive things to say! Just go and you will see for yourself!!
