Dessi was very professional and quick in her responses with me! The massage was firm and it's clear that she's very experienced. I would hire her again!Dec 27, 2018Verified
Dessi is great - my wife and I are both very happy with the deep tissue massage we got. Dessi has deep expertise in anatomy and shared some insights about our bodies. She's also very professional and responsive. Highly recommend!Dec 27, 2018Verified
Dessi was great. It was a true deep tissue massage. One of the best I've ever had. She is so knowledgeable about the body. I will for sure be going back. My body feels so great after our session.Dec 21, 2018Verified
Dessi is amazing! I came to Dessi after having plastic surgery. I was having trouble sleeping due to tightness in the treated areas and I was in a lot of discomfort. Dessi spent the time to explain to me what was happening in my body. She’s an expert! She helped me to relieve my tightness by giving me a lymphatic massage to help drain the swollen areas. I slept like a baby that night. I plan to return to Dessi every few days until I heal. I am so happy that I found Dessi, she’s an angel! She’s helped me so much to not only sleep but feel more positive about my healing process overall. Dessi is super responsive and easy to communicate with.Dec 20, 2018Verified
I had an amazing massage with Dessi! I went in for shoulder pain and she demonstrated a deep understanding of how to help alleviate it. I was pain-free for the day and days later I'm still feeling better.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.
