I have been a client of Shirley Blackwell for 12+ years having been referred to her by my Chiropractor. It has changed my life in a most profound way. I suffered at that time from chronic back pain. After seeing Shirley 2X month this was resolved. Over the years I have had hip, leg pain which are relieved thru the massage process. I also injured my shoulder & have gotten much relief from the gentle muscle melting body work that Shirley performs as well as hot stones. I am now 64 years of age and feel young & flexible which I absolutely attribute to the amazing body work I receive. Prior to Shirley I had tried other therapists with limited satisfaction; after I first saw her it was obvious she has a special gift & passion for nuturing her clients. Several members of my family are also clients referred by me & I always give gift certificates for special occasions which is such a treat. Often I fall asleep during my session due to the peaceful surroundings, essential oils & relaxing music.
My passion is running! I have ran over 10 years and most recently developed a running injury that was a long difficult process to recover! Back in Touch with Shirley, has substantially recovered my injury and restored me: Mind, body & spirit. Her skills as a massage therapist are masterful and healing and her warm heart and listening ear are an added Bonus! I am an RN and appreciate the knowledge base and skill of this Lovely Professional! Thank- you, Shirley! PS-.. I am running a half marathon this next weekend and back in the groove!
AMAZING! What a place! It's beautiful, clean and everyone is so friendly. Customer service and comfort is top priority! Drink...check. Snack...check. Had such a fun day chopping my hair off and getting a massage. Gina (the owner) is a doll. Hannah (hair) is so talented and Julie (massage), has a soothing voice and even more healing hands. Awesome, awesome, awesome! Go there if you need to treat yourself! No where like it in CDA!
Through her deep massages Shirley has helped release the tight muscles around the scoliosis in my back. After the first treatment my back and whole body felt more relaxed. For the first time in decades I could lie almost flat on my back without the hindrance of the scoliosis. She is naturally intuitive as to where the body needs the most work each time. I wholeheartedly recommend her massages.
1st time visiting this establishment tonight, I left feeling better than I have after any massage. The staff was very skilled and professional. The atmosphere was very comfortable. I am normally very shy, but i was made welcome by everyone there. 5 stars well earned!
Shirley is the best! Very relaxing and professional environment. Best theraputic massage ever! She is super in tuned with your needs and always finds those spots that needs to be worked on. I highly recommend her...you won't be disappointed.
Crazy low price for what you get. Have had nearly 100 different therapists through the years...but now I have one. Don't waste your money elsewhere unless you enjoy cookie cutter massages where the therapist is on remote control....
I'm sure Bert is a great therapist but he moved out of this office over 3 years ago. Don't know where he moved to. I believe he had some form of injury to his forearm. Not sure if he is still doing massage therapy.
Shirley is great! She has been able to target the areas that have been strained and stiff, i.e. neck, back, hips. For me, she has used deep tissue, hot stones, to name a couple. I highly recommend Shirley!
"I used to think a massage was a massage was a massage... until I had a massage from Monica. Now that I know the difference, I won't settle for anything less." --DB
