"A while back I damaged both my shoulders and biceps. I go to Peggy as pain management. When I went this last time my neck and shoulders were in so much pain. She was very concerned with the level of pain I had and listened to me. I love deep tissue massage, and this time she really worked deeper on the areas causing me problems. 2 days later I realized I could sleep at night, I had energy, I could think clearly-I felt great!.I highly recommend Peggy, she listened & delivered just what I needed!" - Cindie W.

"I love the massage I got from Peggy. She takes care in perfecting her craft. She is attentive to me, and customizes the massage to fit how I feel. She asks relevant questions in order to efficiently apply the essential oils to specific areas for maximum benefit. She figured out that my pressure tolerance is a 3/4, and she maintained it at that level that I am comfortable with. I am delighted that she covers me with a light blanket, and only reveals the part that she is working on." - Adrianna B.
"Absolutely the best massage ever! Feeling relaxed yet energized. I will return. I highly recommend Peggy and her use of doTerra essential oils." - Geri S.

"Just had an outstanding massage here. Peggy does such an amazing job that I felt like I was floating on the table after the massage. I'm typically not very aware of the types of oils a masseuse may use.. my usual attitude on that is they use whatever they use and I'm ambivalent on the matter. Whatever she used was pretty amazing though and I definitely noticed. It smelled great, felt refreshing and the way she incorporated a hot towel down my spine was just beyond awesome." - Dan B.

"I love Peggy's massages. She is so gifted in sharing her spirit through her hands. This time, I had fallen the day before and banged my side which inhibited my breathing when lying down. The area had also been painful to the touch. Since the massage I no longer have any discomfort. I also love the essential oils that she uses. I shall return!" - Geri S.
"I wrote a review after going to Peggy for a while but I'm well-established with her now & feel the need for a follow-up. I have chronic pain that impedes sleep & life. Peggy ASKS where I'm at every appt and actually LISTENS & RESPONDS!!! I have a whole team of doctors that won't do that! She knows physiology well, has a litany of techniques, oils, hot rocks, etc. & is incredibly responsive to what my body needs in a given day. I can't imagine where I'd be without her care. She is a Godsend" - Annie B.
Peggy is the best massuse I've ever had and believe me I've had massages all over the world including Japan, Thailand, & Spain to mention a few.

It was wonderful to have such a great professional servicing me. Environment. Attitude. Massage. Everything was wonderful. I rebooked my appointment and can't wait to come back!" - Mariah S.

"My wife scheduled an appointment for me, especially since I have carpal tunnel and back issues. I can honestly say that this experience was definitely worth it!

I walk through the front door and have an almost Pavlovian response to the mild aromatherapy: it brings me instant peace. I'm normally averse to scents, but this is... different. Peggy is a warm and caring person, and she always listens to what I *think* I need. Most times, she just knows. I can't say enough about Peggy. It's my haven from the madness." - Kim L.
