What the Mamas Are Saying…
Candace is amazing!! I felt so relaxed and felt asleep towards the end because it's so comfortable. She is really the best! She knows how to get you comfortable and adjust your position and give you tons of helpful tips! I got more than an excellent massage! She showed me useful stretching poses and easy tools I can use at home. I absolutely recommend any pregnant mom to see her!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Candace gives the most relaxing massage, I almost fell asleep. The atmosphere is peaceful and tranquil. In addition to providing a soothing, stress free escape from it all, she gave me great recommendations for stretching at home. 10/10

Words can cannot adequately describe the absolute joy, peace, comfort, safety, and relief I felt while being treated by Candace. She is thoughtful, and an incredible listener, as she listens to, validates, and addresses your concerns with the utmost compassion, gentleness, and kindness. We reviewed my body and pregnancy concerns; she provided education and tools to help; and gave the MOST INCREDIBLE massage. You know how some massage places will just pop you down? She ensured that every section of my body was supported, comfortable, and would not have all the work go down the drain by switching sides. You know how some massage folks will just slap on a warm towel with no regard for acclimating to the heat? Candace eases you in, and is sensitive to every thing you could possibly need. She has incredible intuition and compassion. When we finished the massage, I wept tears. Truly, wept. My body had been carrying so much grief and stress, and I had no idea that the relief Candace provided was the relief I needed. My baby felt supported and I felt so cared for. The ugly cry came out and Candace was again there to offer support. I cannot express just how incredible this business- this incredible, professional woman- is. This is self and baby care. Thank you, Candace, for everything. You're a blessing with healing hands.

Candance is phenomenal!! I’m in my second trimester and am picky about massages and she is a pro! Excellent in all ways. Easy to work with and very kind/flexible. Very professional and thorough about history and needs. The massage itself was amazing, very relaxing and therapeutic both mentally and physically. Highly recommend!!

Candace was fantastic! She explained everything, focused on areas that were bothering me, and by the time she was finished I felt so much better. I would absolutely recommend her and am looking forward to my next appointment. Update: I have continued seeing Candace post pregnancy and she continues to be fantastic. I have never had a negative experience, she remembers the things we talk about, always checks in with me a few days after my appointment to see how I'm doing, and is flexible as much as possible when unexpected things come up. I always look forward to my time with her and leave feeling relaxed and renewed.

I got my first massage here at 36 weeks and it was the best prenatal massage I have every had. Candace is so sweet and made me feel EXTREMELY comfortable and relaxed. My hormones made me a hot sweaty mess, but she continued her work and helped me cool down in no time (while not being too embarrassed)-she even turned on an extra fan for me. Most prenatal massages I have had are just a light rub down, but Candace knew what she was doing and relieved all my knots and kinks! She was so personable and got to know me before the massage. An extra bonus- she's a doula:) She shared her knowledge and tips on how to relieve pain during labor and as I neared the end of my pregnancy. I have my second message booked right before my little one comes and am counting down the days. Whether you need to relax, or get out the aches and pains...she won't disappoint. Plus, her prices are very reasonable compared to most places.

My 90-minute prenatal massage with Candace was one of the most relaxing experiences I have ever had. She really tailors the whole massage: scents/aromatherapy, pressure, heat, and positions. She’s extremely attentive and thorough. I have never fallen asleep during a massage before. I was so sad when she gently woke me up! No part of me wanted to leave. I highly, highly, highly recommend any expecting mother to Candace. She is lovely, very kind, and it’s very obvious she enjoys helping others. **UPDATE** I returned to Candace several times during my pregnancy - her package deals are very reasonable, and it honestly made the last couple months more bearable. After my daughter was born, a friend of mine gifted me a post-natal massage with Candace. It was every bit as wonderful as the pre-natal massage. She is focused on tuning into your needs and is a great listener. She has a way of bringing you to a Zen level before even beginning your treatment. New moms - book the appointment!

Candace is amazing! As a first time mom, I didn’t know what to expect with a prenatal massage and how it varies from regular massage. Candace was super relaxed, very knowledgeable, and it’s evident that mama’s are her passion. I can’t recommend her enough and wish I found her even earlier in my pregnancy!

Absolutely love coming here! So sweet and nice! Always puts on some nice soothing music that’s to my taste. 100% will recommend to any future mamas
