This is my first review, but very very well deserved. I had vertigo and was looking for a massage therapist, called my insurance and they gave Dessi's contact, I talked to her and she was very understanding and compassionate at the same time inspirational. She asked me "if you don't want to take charge of your health, show me one person who will"......that reverberated in my mind for 3 months before I took her appointment. (I do regret that.....but better than never). By the time, I took her appointment, my vertigo was fine, but I still needed help with the pain and managing my self. I am undergoing some fertility treatment and have low endurance and overall muscle weakness. Dessi worked with me for Neuro-muscular reprogramming and it has worked wonders in my overall health, posture, stability, and balance. Most important, she fixed certain emotional aspects that I was holding onto quickly and efficiently (better than psychotherapy). I have seen improvement in my emotional health and physical health. I thank her so much for working with me especially when dealing with infertility. She is more invested in me, gives me time and read about my conditions more in details and makes suggestions that other doctors have missed and those are certainly helpful. She has amazing work ethics and puts the patient first ahead of her self. If you are dealing with any kind of infertility or emotional or physical issue Neuro-muscular reprogramming is a must and I highly recommend Dessi!Nov 28, 2018
Very professional and attentive massage therapist, who spends the needed time to provide a thorough diagnostic.May 30, 2018Verified
Dessi focused on my neck area with good strong pressure and put me in positions which allowed for her to really get to the source of the problem (i.e. neck muscle contracting on a nerve.) I feel tremendously better with more range of motion in my neck and a lot less pain. Dessi's studio is very clean and in a nice neighborhood. I have had numerous massages in the past from other therapists, I can honestly say Dessi has been the best so far.Dec 16, 2018Verified
Dessi is an excellent massage therapist, and I thoroughly enjoyed our session. She's kind and patient and has amazing strength and skills for her massage work. I plan to go back to her soon!Nov 28, 2018Verified
Dessi is an excellent massage therapist ! She knows well about the human body and tailors the message session based on your body condition. I tried her service for 3 times and the experience is refreshing. My body feels relieved and I also learned a lot about how to take care of my body from Dessi :)Dec 19, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I work in 75-min and 90-min increments and the cost is 1.25 x or 1.5 x the hourly rate, respectively. Thumbtack customers enjoy DISCOUNTS at certain times of the year, so check specifics on my profile.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The objectives and SYMPTOMS of a client for each session drive the kind of work that we do and the technique we use. Before your session you will receive an email confirmation for your appointment and a 24-hour reminder. To approach your body in an informed way, I will ask about background to your injury and symptoms and whether you have had surgeries or broken bones. For clinical work, we invest the beginning of our first session to discuss in detail HISTORY of INJURIES and medical interventions, as well as ASSESSING MOVEMENT.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have extensive training in ANATOMY, HUMAN MOVEMENT and NEUROLOGY through course work in neuro-kinesiology, active release techniques, human gait and human development. One of the best teachers is my own body - I use for my own maintenance the same approach my clients experience.
