"I had a 60-minute massage with Leah last Thursday. I work in the industry and I have access to massages on a frequent basis. The massage I had from Leah was one of the best I have ever received. From the very beginning, when I booked the massage, I felt taken care of. I was sent a helpful reminder email a couple of days before my massage. When I entered the tranquil spa last Thursday where Leah has her practice, she greeted me warmly and offered me water and/or tea. We went over my reasons for needing a massage (neck and shoulder tension) and I was shown the way to her comfortable, serene therapy room.
Leah has the gift of giving a massage that is both relaxing and therapeutic. Some other therapists mistakenly believe that they have to "hurt" their clients in order to address their issues. That tactic just leaves me tense and sore - not really what I want out of a massage. However, Leah effectively uses different techniques that smooth out tense areas and trigger points with appropriate pressure and a flow that really puts her client at ease. I had also explained to her that I am ticklish which can be challenging for some therapists but not for Leah. I did not tense up or squirm once.
After the massage, she offered me more water as hydrating is very important after bodywork. I felt great for the rest of the day, actually for the next few days. On Sunday, she even sent a personalized email checking in on how I was doing and reminded me of the suggestions she made about altering my computer set-up at work to help ease my neck and shoulder tension. I really appreciate her expertise and the care she shows for her client. I highly recommend booking a massage with Leah."
