We love seeing our clients results
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.
