“…I would highly recommend Renee for any of your massage or energy work needs. Her experience and training are top notch and her technique is just right. She was patient and thorough and I will be seeing her again.”
“Thank You Renee for helping me relax for a little while. It's something I just can't seem to accomplish on my own. Your strength & attention to my many tight areas helped loosen me up & allowed a greater freedom of movement. I'll definitely try to schedule more time with you in the near future.”
“Renee has given me several massages and I am always very happy with her work and expertise. She is very thorough in her work, from asking about any ailments or problem areas, etc. Renee's studio is very comforting and I felt so pampered! I will be rescheduling with her in the near future!”

Add-OnsAdditional services that can be added to any massage appointment.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot stones applied during a massage help your muscles relax. Once your muscles are relaxed, Renee will be able to work with your deep tissues more effectively. Releasing that extra tension makes it possible to provide a deeper massage to relieve your sore muscles.
Paraffin Wax Hand Treatment
Using paraffin wax on your hands and feet before a massage is a way to apply a moist heat that eases pain and loosens your joints. This is especially valuable for people suffering from arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome and people who spend a lot of time on their feet.
