Massage Therapy Reviews
Sports Massage Ann Arbor MI- “My massage with Maya was the best massage i’ve ever had, in Ann Arbor and elsewhere. Her technique was amazing and she worked out the tense areas in my body that I didn’t even know existed. For the rest of the day I felt beyond deeply relaxed. I highly recommend Maya to anyone who wants a phenomenal massage.

Massage Therapy Session Ann Arbor MI- Michael is very knowledgable about human anatomy and is a very experienced therapist. My shoulder and upper arm problem has bothered me for some time, but Michael’s deep tissue massage has really helped. The pain is reduced, and I am able to move my arm more freely. I believe that with Michael’s help, and my own strengthening exercises, my shoulder and upper arm can be healed in a couple of months.

Prenatal Massage Therapy Ann Arbor – Great location, comfortable setting, calm atmosphere. Nice touches like the warming blanket on the table; glad the sounds and scents were neutral, and not strong like sandalwood or other smells.
