Client Reviews

"I have been seeing Rita for approximately 5 years. She has helped me immensely with my upper body issues! She really goes above and beyond what your 'run of the mill' massage places do. For example: she uses hot packs on my upper back/neck and then deep tissue massage. In addition, your time doesn't start until you are actually on the table. I recommend her to my co-workers and friends."
- Denise S.

"Rita has truly helped me mange my pain these last few months. I came to her a mess and every time I leave I feel relaxed and positive. She is truly a "Healer." She takes time to listen and help you evaluate your needs. The Life Kneads office is professional, calm, and has many options for helping someone create a healthy lifestyle. Today I cannot imagine my life without Rita's experienced massage techniques, her kindness, and true compassion. She has been an integral part of my healing path. Thank you! "
- Anna Gunsher.

"Four years ago Rita was recommended to me by a friend. I was having severe back trouble and felt I needed some deep tissue massage. Rita was and is remarkable! I left that initial visit pain free for the first time in months. I have been a client of Rita's ever since and will remain with her for as long she is in practice."
- Jane Weaver.

"As a life-long runner, I have periodically resorted to therapeutic massage and bodywork to maintain high-level wellness and to speed recovery from overuse injuries or the usual sore muscles. Of all my massage experiences, Stefanie delivered a relaxing, professional session that left me revitalized and refreshed. Her combination of gentle touch and carefully-applied firmness were a perfect prescription for my aches and pains."
- Louis Anderson.
