My treatments last 1-2 days longer than anything I've done before

Pain is the best motivator. My treatments last 1-2 days longer than anything I've done before. I've taken care of my body but aging is affecting my hips and they help relieve the tightness in my hips.

My massage is a detox of my body and my mind

My massage is a detox of my body and my mind. They know what needs to be worked on before I do. I have never felt more cared for during a massage.

Everyone MUST go! I have never had such incredible and lasting results.

Everyone must go! This is a whole different massage experience. I am a muscular guy, the pressure of two thumbs or an elbow can't compare to the width of a foot and the pressure of body weight. I get 10-20x more blood flow. I have never had such incredible and lasting results!

As soon as the session starts, my body is like "Ahhhhh"

Within 3 visits, the pain that I had for years was gone and my range of motion was back to normal.

The Elm Massage + Bodywork is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I’ve had shoulder pain for years from an old training injury. I tried everything to make it better and nothing worked. My wife sent me in for one last ditch effort. Within 3 visits, the pain that I had for years was gone and my range of motion was back to normal. I can’t say enough about them. If you’re looking for therapeutic or just relaxation massage this is definitely the place!

They restored my walking ability

I first met Nicole when I was walking with a cane for at least six months due to a knee problem. She made such a difference in my life as typical medical treatment did not help much. Nicole got me back to walking again without a cane or walker after a few months of excellent massage therapy. I am grateful that she came into my life and restored my walking ability.
