"10 years of pain, gone in one session! I saw chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists and 3 osteopathic surgeons. After seeing all of these practitioners, I still had the same pain I started with. The surgeons wanted to do surgery and fuse my spine, I said no to that. I knew someone could help me, I just had to find them. And then I did! I found Valerie. She took me seriously right from the start and researched my problems until she found the right solution for ME. My hips are holding strong! I was pain free all last night and today. I can bend over without the painful hitch I used to have. I can't remember when the last time I could pick something up off the floor or put on my socks without pain. I'm indebted to Valerie. I'm overwhelmed with joy and I don't know how to thank her enough. I know I still have a road ahead of me because my hips were out of alignment for so long but the road doesn't seem so long anymore."
"I had always thought massages were a luxury that I didn't have time or money for. When I began having tension in my neck and shoulders day and night my doctor suggested I try massage. I consider it a miracle that I found Valerie. She is professional but also friendly and caring. I feel so much better since I'm not "tied in knots" all the time. Now I look forward to my massages and have a much better quality of life."
"Valerie gave me an excellent, very relaxing and invigorating message today! After a quick interview, she seemed to know just what to do in order to relieve my muscle tension. I highly recommend Valerie as an expert in her field who has passion to help people get better."

"I liked the diagrams that Valerie used to explain things like trigger points and the muscles. No other therapist has taken the time to do that with me before. I was impressed! I feel like I understand a lot better now what is going on now with my body. The techniques she uses are so effective, I feel great after every treatment. She gets the job done!"

"All the diplomas and certificates on the wall in Valerie's treatment room show her passion and dedication to helping others get better and live pain free. I'm so happy I found her. She's just as enthusiastic about my progress as I am!"

"I am a cancer survivor and go to Valerie for Lymphatic Drainage. I look forward to my treatments every week. She has really helped me in decreasing the swelling from my breast cancer surgery. Also, she really listens to me when I talk and she is so nice and caring. I feel very comfortable in her care."

"Very knowledgeable gal! Bring a pen & paper...you might want to write down what she tells you!"
"These are the best massages I've ever had in my entire life!"
"I thought I was having deep tissue massages at a different place, even paid extra $ for it. Now I know what real deep work is. Valerie is the best at what she does. I've never felt better."

"Amazing customer service!! Valerie is so warm & friendly and made me feel very comfortable for my first massage. I will be back!"
"I'll never go anywhere else for massage therapy. Valerie listened to me and talked with me for long time about my back. She explained everything in a non-rushed way that nobody ever took the time to do before. She's a really caring person and that is so rare and refreshing to see."
