"I have fibromyalgia along with a host of on and off sports related injuries and have been under Marlen Caduff's care since 2009.
Prior to learning of Marlen, I experimented with other local masseuses. Note, I didn't say massage therapists. Following my initial session with Marlen, I recognized the difference. She combines caring, empathy, deep knowledge of the body and one other thing to render healing and true therapy.
Marlen's knowledge of the body transcends physiology. To understand however, it starts there. She has college degrees from Switzerland in nursing and body movement (no American equivalent degree). In addition to massage practices learned in Thailand, her Swiss and American certifications, Marlen specialized in Birth Preparation training in Switzerland.
Combine this underlying foundation of knowledge with Marlen's ability to quickly learn and understand the energy circulation and pain threshold spots in her client's body and you'll begin to see why Marlen is exceptional.
This exceptional talent and knowledge will push a person to the front of their profession. But I'm convinced what separates Marlen from leading therapists is a gift of both perception and intuition. Her ability to perceive through touch, what your body needs is pure unadulterated art. Because of the fibro, my body is ultra-sensitive. But there are times when it needs deeper massage work. I'm not consciously aware of this and if I was I wouldn't think deeper work would be appropriate. But Marlen knows. I've never felt pain when she's gone there. I'm trying my best to articulate this but in all reality this experience defies description.
Marlen has another gift. As a spa owner, she has continuously surrounded herself with intelligent and caring professionals.
Finally, aside from Marlen's talent, knowledge, gifts and entrepreneurial acumen, she is a kind-hearted, warm and friendly person. Her spirit is even better!"
