"Helen is one of the best massage therapists I've ever worked with. I have chronic issues with pain in my legs, and it's always hard to find someone who will be *patient* and *slow* and *thoughtful* enough to do deep work without just plowing through the scar tissue and making me want to scream. Helen is just... incredibly present. Like, more present than any other massage therapist who has worked on me before. I don't get the sense that she's watching the clock run out on the session, or that she's pushing through the muscle to get to the next stroke. I get the sense that her fingers are talking to all the pain points I have and sitting down for tea to politely and firmly ask them to vacate the area. Me and my legs 100% recommend her work."
