“I believe I can help anyone – from a couch potato to a professional athlete. During our session, you will hear me telling you to breathe or take a deep breath. I believe the breath is a catalyst for relaxation and for bringing attention inward, telling you, ‘It is time to heal.’”

"I met Marsha at Burke Williams spa several years ago. I was so happy when she embarked on her own practice. She’s a fantastic massage therapist who is both intuitive and knowledgeable about the human body. Marsha is relentless when it comes to getting rid of all my kinks and scar tissue and leaves me feeling like a wonderful, wet noodle! I highly recommend her!!"

"I have been going to Marsha for massage and bodywork for 3+ years. Having been a dancer all my life, there have been multiple occasions that massage has saved my body. It is so beneficial for tightness, strained muscles, misalignment, etc. In my experience it's incredibly difficult to find a masseuse that is able to intuitively cater your sessions based on what your body needs in that moment. Marsha does exactly that and really is the best at what she does. Her physical ability and strength blows my mind. My body always feels brand new after I see her! She truly is incredible. Marsha has a variety of techniques that make it exciting to book a session with her. As well as her physical strength and talent in bodywork, Marsha has the most amazing energy. She is warm and kind and simply being in her presence relaxes you. Massage with Marsha transforms your experience into an otherworldly place; heaven on earth! I highly recommend Marsha to anyone who enjoys massage, has back/body ailments, or simply likes treating themselves to something magical! Marsha is the best, hands down!!!"

She is so easy to be with yet so strong and successful in relieving my tight muscles which enables me to participate in my athletics. Marsha is really an expert. I have recommended her to many friends and acquaintances and will continue to do so. Marsha is an excellent massage therapist and deserves an award for being so awesome!"
