Word of mouth reference is usually reliable, and it turned out to work for picking a new massage therapist. Deborah is very good at massage, she incorporates a lot of techniques that regular Swedish massage doesn't use. I was surprised and am convinced now of the acupressure she combines the massage with. The nicest thing though: she doesn't talk your ear off! I hate not being able to relax because I feel pressured to keep up conversation. I felt really relaxed after my massage, and would recommend it to anyone with stiff muscle or knots in their back.
The setting is nice too. Quiet music and a plush table. Her studio is located inside DermaGlow, and the people there were friendly.
