“The massage therapy session provided by Robyn was absolutely stellar. She patiently and carefully worked through various problem areas. I felt completely refreshed and thoroughly revitalized after the session. I highly recommend her, no matter the extent or nature of your massage therapy needs.”
“Robyn has been my massage therapist for the past 7 years and I always look forward to my appointments. She is excellent both technically and personally, and she asks about what has been going on with my life & body in order to maximize the massage time. Robyn is punctual and respectful of my time. She has a flexible style and can use many types of massage to fit my needs. I have referred my friends to Robyn, and I will continue to do so.”
Robyn started massage as an adjunct to her moonlighting job. She worked at a small venue, and they often had artists who had driven too long, or played the shiny new guitar for too many hours in a row to play without pain. Her job was to get them onstage and keep them there. She had to learn trigger point and similar techniques. One artist gently asked if she could connect him with "a real massage therapist." She vowed never to hear that again, and pursued a massage education. Robyn has been blessed with challenging and complex clients, who allow her to keep learning in the service of healing. Robyn’s style draws from several traditions, informed by the latest research into movement and pain. It is gentle work with lasting effect.
