Client testimonials

“Thank you so much for all your help over the past couple of years. I originally came to you with an assortment of aches and pains frequently experienced by older adults—arthritis, muscle soreness, etc. And since then I‘ve returned regularly to continue the relief your massage treatments provide. I feel like a different person every time I leave!
   But your advice has also been very helpful. Frequently during our sessions you help me understand what changes I can make in my day-to-day activities to help prevent those and other issues in the first place.
   All this offered in a friendly, supportive, professional environment. Thank you again.”

“We sought treatment for various skeletal issues including arthritis, joint wear and general life stress.
   We were very satisfied and recommend Cecilia unconditionally.
   We have had massages by various therapists for many years so our opinion is based on comparative analysis. Cecilia is very professional and confident about her work. Always starting with a chat about how we were feeling she modified her approach to focus on our needs. Her treatments are very effective demonstrating the techniques of pressure points and massaging used to help relax and harmonize the body. She is very flexible and ready to adapt to any new issues or any requests for particular help.
   After therapy when we had the time she would sit with us and discuss how we felt about the treatment offering ideas to maintain our improved physical status.
   We will miss her so very much!

“My dad is currently in a retirement home for rehab and skilled nursing. I was so very thrilled to see that the massage therapists at CalmingPoints offered massage at that facility. My 84 year old father had his very first massage ever and absolutely loved it. I know it made him feel more comfortable and relaxed. He was able to lay in his bed comfortably while the massage therapist worked on him. He is now getting a massage each week and thoroughly enjoying it. Thank you for offering this invaluable service to those who need it the most”

Back and shoulder problems

I feel strongly that massage has changed the quality of my life, helped me be a more relaxed person and function at a higher level. Cecilia is a very caring person. The treatment sessions are very comfortable. I feel completely confident about her skills.”

Back problems

For overall relaxation

“I have been seeing Cecilia for the past 2 or 3 years. I always feel really good after a massage from Cecilia. She knew what to do to address any concerns I would have. She was interested in my wellness and definitely a professional. ”

Post-surgery mastectomy treatment

“The massages have been part of my treatment to control lymphedema after radical mastectomy. I always come away form the sessions feeling refreshed and relaxed. I became interested in Jin Shin Jyutsu after Cecilia used some of the techniques for a problem I was having with fluid buildup near the mastectomy site. After that I had many sessions that were straight Jin Shin Jyutsu, a very pleasant form of bodywork in my experience.”

Treatment of issues related to lupus

“I seek treatment for overall muscle and joint pain that is due to lupus and the effects of a stressful occupation. Cecilia begins each session with the question, ‘ How is your body feeling today?’ She doesn‘t make any assumptions or try to guess how I‘m feeling. Cecilia is very patient-focused. She then concentrates on identified problem areas.”
