I came in with back and lower body pains. After about 6 sessions I was feeling brand new again!!! Maria is a true professional and very excellent and understanding to your particular case. I
recommend her to anyone looking for a massage therapist.

The overall atmosphere, cleanliness, and quality of the facility was professional and relaxing. The massage strokes felt firm, flowing, confident, and appropriate to the needs of my body. My
experience was excellent and I would come back.

I just got the best massage of my life! Being a massage therapist myself, I know a great massage from a good one--and this was beyond great. Maria found--and effectively treated--areas that I didn't
realize needed help. Her facility is clean and relaxing, and her professionalism--and skill--are beyond compare. I'm coming back soon!

"Massages For Healing" has given me back my active/ happy life when no one else cared enough to "listen" and help.
I had taken a bad fall and realized that something had gone really wrong from the swelling and pain in my foot. So I went to urgent care and x-rays revealed what everyone there called a "sprain"
ankle. I was directed to stay off my feet for few days.. which I did..
However, as the pain intensified to an excruciating pain like, with a constant burning sensation mostly around the back of the heel and the side of the ankle to the sole of my feet. I also knew that
it was not just the normal pain associated with a "sprain". So I revisited urgent care and was given crutches to help in not putting my foot down when walking around. Still no- one there addressed
that unusual excruciating burning pain.... there was no other way to describe that felling but I knew that it was not normal pain associated with ankle sprain. After a second visit to Urgent Care, I
was referred to an orthopedist for further evaluation.
When I told the orthopedist of that burning pain in the back of my ankle, to the point that since the accident I had not been able to sleep because of it, his answer was to give me painkillers...
since he himself could not even touch that area without a screaming pain.. He blamed that pain for an Achilles Tendon badly injured. He also gave me a boot to wear and told me to come back to see him
in a month. Meanwhile the swelling and the burning pain intensified.
That is when a friend told me about "Massages For Healing" and about Maria Marks the owner, who had helped her husband in the past.
Full of hope, I made an appointment to see Maria and from that first visit, I knew that I had made the right decision.
Maria took the time to understand and was very attentive to my concerns, location and level of pain, as well as she understood immediately that in order to look at it, evaluate it and treat it she
needed first to be able to touch it and because of pain, I was very leery about her touching my foot...But her explanation of what she thought was wrong and medical data she supported her diagnostic
with gave confidence that, finally, someone...Maria...was going to be helpful....I was right...Maria worked on my foot on that first session with all the care and patience needed to be able to get to
the root of the problem...and by the time I left her that first day, I could finally breath a sight of relieve from that excruciating pain. I could not believe that she had been able to do that in
one session. That night for the first time in five weeks I sleep!.
Clearly it took a few more sessions for my foot to regain its normality in the look and feel...but with each session some different improvement were taking place, the pain level diminish and looked
forward to treatment with each visit to the pain management center.
Maria does not simply"massage" the injured area...she knows every bone and muscle in your body and work with it in special ways/ massages that promote the injured area healing process...with each
visit. Maria started with some new information about some research she had been doing to confirm that she was going in the right direction with the treatment....That demonstrates how much she cares
about her patient and her medical field.
I went back for a fallow up visit with my orthopedist, in between visits to Maria, and he was amazed what Maria had done and based on what she had been able to do. He them confirmed that the
excruciating pain I was experiencing must have been part of the very unusual CRPS effect which Maria clearly had detected and treated.
But the most remarkable aspect of having Maria work on you injury is her total commitment to get you well!. She is gentle with pain but firm with the bone/muscle that needs to respond to that healing
process that she is after..... Maria will take the time that is needed to accomplish what she aims for, for every visit.....Each visit, brought some dramatic improvement to my foot problem and I am
very grateful to Maria for her knowledge.
As I am older and know that I will have more pain and injuries, my only worry is that Maria will retire and won't be around when I need her again.....

Maria is the best therapist I have ever had! Not only is she a hard worker but she is an expert in her field. I had been suffering with massive headaches for a long time, and after a few treatments,
I am headache free. And now, we are working on healthy body! and mind! Thank you Maria.

Maria is incredible, I have been seeing her since this May once a week for major pain issues and mobility issues. My husband and I do Ballroom Dancing and with all the pain I was experiencing and
having a hard time moving I needed to do something fast. Maria has been doing trigger point, deep tissue, and orthopedic massages on me and I have been able to keep on dancing because of her, and I
have not felt this good in 8 years. Also I have needed to loose some weight, so Maria has been doing lymphatic drainage and sudatonic infrared body wraps on me to loose inches and it is working
already, I have lost a few inches all over in just 3 appointments. And last but not least, Maria has been doing rejuvenation face massages on me to get rid of the puffiness and circles around my eyes
and I already look better and younger! Maria is a blessing, she is well trained, professional and very caring & loving individual. Her office is very clean and quiet and private. Maria takes the
time to figure out what is needed for the client, you are treated like a good friend/family member, she really cares about her clients!!!
