One of the best massages I've ever had! Lynda was great at finding all the knots and sore points while at the same time, keeping the massage relaxing. Her massages are individually tailored to your needs and she is obviously very experienced! Enjoyed every minute and would highly, highly recommend!

Linda has an amazing talent to find knots and tension. Her massage therapy is amazingly accurate and pain relieving. Do your body a favour and let Linda use her experience in the most professional manner. Probably the best massage I've ever had.

After months of working and traveling my body was screaming for massage. I'm so glad I stayed in Franz Josef for an additional night and managed to schedule a 90 min massage with Lynda. I had another massage in town and it was _okay_. My massage with Lynda was glorious. I felt like each part of my body was well... More

This is now my third massage from Lynda. She is a great person with absolutely magic hands! I went in with a twinge in my lower back and she fixed me up good as new! We are very lucky to have someone of Lynda's calibre here in Glacier Country!

How outstanding it was that in what virtually seems like the middle of nowhere, can someone get such a soothing, thorough and relaxing massage as I did at the Body Business! Being an American, I've had my fair share of masseuses back in the states. None of them held a candle to my experience here. After a long day's hike,... More

While recently on a bicycle tour of the West Coast on the South Island of New Zealand, I had the great experience of a massage recommended by our tour leader. I had been experiencing increasing pain in my lower back and explained that to Linda, the massage therapist. She gave me a fabulous deep tissue massage that helped me so... More

Being Pregnant in Franz Josef does not leave you with very many options when your partner is off Ice climbing one of the Glaciers! I searched high & low for some form of relaxation & was finally advised about Linda's spot behind the Art Gallery. She was very clued up on pregnancy and massage & told me what she could... More

Thanks for your lovely feedback, I'm very glad you enjoyed your massage. If you can email me directly then I can send you the baby massage information as the email you left me doesn't seem to want to work. Cheers Lynda More

The Body Business was the first stop we planned when we put together our trip. we used to see Linda regularly when we were Glacier Guiding and she worked wonders with our sore muscles. She worked with our injuries but you don't have to be injured to see her. Linda has fixed us up and made our bodies feel ready... More

I have been getting massages from Lynda for many years, and she really is the best. In my line of work (Mountain Guiding) my body gets a real hammering. Lynda has fixed me up on numerous occasions so I could get back into the hills. Most recently I had an ongoing problem in my feet, diagnosed as Plantar fasciitis. One... More
