“Had my first prenatal massage with Adeline and it was amazing. She still used a good amount of pressure and really worked out the knots in my shoulders and neck, even showed me some stretches to help. The bed is really comfortable with the hole for the tummy and boobs and she even put a pillow around my pelvis to really make sure I’m comfortable. When you are on your back, Adeline had a ramp and lots of pillows to make sure I was sitting up and comfortable. It was such a great massage that I joined the wellness membership right after. I’ll be coming back to get massages regularly!” — J. C.

“I had an amazing prenatal massage with Heidi today! She covered everything - back, shoulders, neck, arms, legs, feet, etc. and I felt so relaxed afterward. She made sure to check in with me to see if the level of pressure felt ok throughout. I’m kind of a massage newbie, but everything felt great and the oils she used smelled amazing. I also loved how she laid hot towels over my back and feet. She was kind and had a calming presence. Their massage table with a cut-out for the belly is very comfortable and allowed me to lie flat face-down for the massage. Toward the end Heidi had me switch positions to lie on my back with a big wedge under my upper body to keep me propped up, since it’s not safe to lie flat on my back after the first trimester.” — Anne C.

“Jodi CURED my back pain; I am a fan for life! I’d been under a lot of stress with a new job and a big move and unfortunately, as someone who stores their stress IN their back, a minor muscle pull turned in to a two-week pain-filled ordeal. In desperation I turned to Yelp to find a good masseuse, and thankfully I found Verde Touch and Jodi. Her massage was a deep one, but when I woke up the next morning I woke up with NO pain, and have been fine ever since; no pain meds needed at all—and I was practically living on them during the two weeks before I decided that I needed a massage. Thank you … Jodi for giving me the best massage of my life. My back and I both thank you for it!” — Tracy F.

“I am 33 weeks preggo and my massage by Noelle was hands-down the best massage I’ve had (pregnant or not) ever. Having the option to lie on my stomach was magical, and the pressure was perfect. I get massages often - I’ve had four since I’ve been pregnant and most of them felt like they were just rubbing body oil on me...this one felt like a legit massage, and the temperature, the music - everything was perfect. One of my pet peeves is when the masseuse talks during the massage, and Noelle was very mindful and only checked in with me on pressure, and when things hurt, she explained why. I am excited to go back two or three more times before the baby arrives.” — Susan M.
