Our newest addition is Celeste Rogers,LMT,  who is not only a great massage therapist but the only Trager practitioner in town. You receive Trager work fully clothed (without shoes of course). I describe it as a rocking motion which is performed and I Love It!  I literally felt it for 3 days after receiving the full 1 1/2 hour session. The ease with which I moved, how my body felt so loose internally and so comfortable inside was amazing.  People with fibromyalgia find it especially  gentle, helpful and freeing.

Again, welcome. We consider it a privilege to give you our best care and service.
