Barb gives great massages. She has strong arms and hands and she is also is aware when she needs to give less pressure to an area. I also love the little extra custom touches she puts into the massage time… from creating a lovely space, soothing music, ensuring there’s always water, warm/heated pads to ease tensions while she’s working on other spots, aromatherapy, eye bag while face up, props and pillows to make the whole experience as nurturing and rejuvenating as possible. - Laura R.
