Sara is professional, respectful, attentive, and kind. I’ve never had a massage therapist listen to me more intently than she does.

As a first-time massage recipient I was a little nervous, but in pain so I took the plunge. Sara and I discussed my ailments and planned a comprehensive treatment to address them. She worked out my kinks and I left feeling relaxed and ache-free. She has the touch and I’ve been back several times since!

Sara did an amazing job at making me feel comfortable and relaxed at each session, as well as explaining what she was doing as she went.

Sara's hands are knowing, gentle, and strong. Her commitment to her clients is evident. Although quite knowledgeable, if she doesn't know something, instead of blowing it off she will research the topic and get back to you.
