Like most folks, I would pick up the occasional living social or groupon for an hour long massage from random massage places offering a deal that month. Every time I had the same results: the massage would feel great but as I walked to my car in the parking lot I immediately could feel everything start to tense up again.
Ten months ago I purchased an hour long massage deal for Ann Roth. I went into the massage expecting the same results as before, but was so pleasantly surprised with the quality of Ann's massage that I scheduled another massage with her that day. Ann is the first massage therapist I have went to more than once, and from my bi-weekly appointments I have noticed a great change in my neck and back health. I highly recommend Ann!
... I have had many massages in the past but because of the increasing pain and muscle stiffness due to my Fibromyalgia, Diabetic Neuropathy and Arthritis I stopped having them. The therapist did not understand they were hurting me. I would have to take extra pain medication just hours after each session. Then in 2003, I gave Ann Roth a chance. She was very easy to talk to and she listened to me AND my body. She tailored made a massage routine that loosened my stiff muscles and also reduced my pain significantly. I noticed the effects of her technique lasted not for a day but for days. I noticed I was not using my pain medication between the scheduled times. As the months passed, I did not use as much medication for pain or the neuropathy. I have often told her and many people she has gifted hands ... healing hands ...
I would like to give my experience with ann as my massage therapist because I have been with her for a number of years now and I have found her gifted and talented. I have had various problems through these years as I am an older woman and she always attended to these issues in a way that was healing and reassuring. She always provided those extras that are so appreciated, warmed table, special attention to my hands and feet, a wonderful scent to inhale and calming music. I think a lot of her skills as a massage therapist and highly recommend her.
