Tara’s work is incredible, I have never felt so relaxed and open to a massage as I did with her. She really listened and got into the areas causing my body pain! She’s a beautiful person inside and out and her hands are magic!

Tara spent over an hour working on my neck and shoulders. The massage was relaxing and got out every single knot, including ones I didn’t know I had. After having twins, my back felt like it was perpetually on fire. Tara took the time to...More
