Our Clients say...
I have been a regular client of Christine Carew for more than 10 years, visiting her every other week for a wonderful one-hour massage. Because she is dually licensed as a Physical Therapist Assistant, she is able to fully address my concerns about the various muscle injuries and aches and pains I have had to deal with over the years; in fact, she's greatly helped me when I have had to have PT sessions after various back, leg and shoulder injuries occurring from sport or plain repetitive motion overuse.
She has thousands of hours of experience, she's professional, she's tuned in to my needs and--very important--she has a great sense of humor!
My regular visits to Christine help keep me sane in times of stress. she's very sensitive to her client's body concerns and issues. I highly recommend Christine for her massage expertise, whether it's your first time or you have been getting massage for 20 years, as I have--I think you'll benefit!
Our Clients say...
I have been going to Christine for therapeutic massage for years. she is the girl to see when your muscles are crying out for attention. she has worked on my neck, back, hips, shoulder, and an injured wrist, and most recently a full body deep tissue massage.I have always walked out of her massage room feeling better than when I walked in. she doesn't just give a basic massage, she gets to the root of the problem and fixes it. Since I've been seeing Christine I have cut back on chiropractic visits and have been able to continue activities that I thought my body had given up on. I have visited other massage therapists all over, yet none compare to this small town massage professional. Thank you Christine for helping me stay healthy and active!
