And she does so in a manner that includes the client in becoming part of their own healing, if that is their choice. Her depth of knowledge about the aligned functioning of the body is exceptionally
comprehensive. I highly recommend her massage treatments."

Reflexology is an ancient healing art that involves stimulating the acupressure points of the feet, hands, and ears that correspond to every body part, including organs and glands. The practice of modern Reflexology is rooted in the ancient societies of Egypt, India and China where evidence suggests that the tradition has existed for 5000 years. Reflexology may help the body to re-establish equilibrium in order to achieve optimum health via stress reduction and improved circulation.
Andrea's knowledge, intuition and sensitivity, translated through her touch, leave me relaxed, rejuvenated and replete. She makes me feel like putty in her strong, capable hands. My lower back hasn't been this limber in over 35 years!!!

Shiatsu is a contemporary therapy with its roots in Oriental traditional medicine. Shiatsu literally means “finger pressure”. Natural body weight is used when pressure is applied on meridians (energy channels) and tsubo (pressure points). In addition to pressure itself, Shiatsu involves gentle stretch and manipulation techniques.
From the moment I walked into Andrea's massage room I felt her great energy! Andrea's knowledge of the body and how it works was very apparent in the treatment. I started out with a sore back and booked an hour massage and the work she was doing was so great I upped it to 90 minutes (thankful she had the time to do that). For anyone looking for some amazing healing hands Andrea is your girl!
