Latest Review: When I think about my previous frame of mind about massages, Im reminded of a scene in the movie Me and You and Everyone We Know when the female lead is in the shoe store. The salesman asks if her shoes are comfortable and she meekly says I guess.. they rub my ankles, but all shoes do that. I just have low ankles. He looks her square in the eyes and says, You think you deserve that pain, but you dont.
Danielle sat me down with a delicious glass of her own homemade kombucha and asked me where my pain was and how long I had been dealing with it. It shocked me to realize its been almost 10 years. I think that when you deal with something like that for long enough, it just becomes a normal albeit uncomfortable part of life. But it doesnt have to be, and Im very grateful to Danielle for helping me realize that.
I came here because of a Groupon, which I had purchased a few months back as a somewhat indulgent gift to myself on a payday. Massages always seemed like exuberant luxuries I couldnt afford. It had been about three years since my last massage, and my muscles were begging me on their sore knees to help them out.
It was just a wonderful experience from start to finish. Danielle was extremely warm and friendly in the most genuine way. Her space is very relaxed and open. Lots of wood and earthy colors. She made me feel very comfortable and in control, and did frequent check-ins to make sure I was getting the pressure I wanted. She even asked me to choose the Pandora station, which was a pleasant surprise.
Unlike the few other massage therapists Ive been to in the past, Danielle doesnt just have her own routine to do and go home. She genuinely wants to help you heal in the best way that works for you, and she has the talent to follow through.
She also did a great thing for me by asking about my health insurance. It turns out my insurance covers 27 massages a year for a small copay, which I had NO idea about for the last 4 years of my achey life. So Im really looking forward to going back, especially now that I can afford it.
Do your muscles a favor and schedule some table time.
