Denise provides excellent service and very caring treatment. I always leave feeling very relaxed.
I have experienced the pleasure of Shiatsu massage therapy with Denise. I have come to realize the importance of a skilled therapeutic massage executed by a professional, trained individual. Beyond her professionalism, I find that Denise truly cares about each individual, their health, their circumstances – mind body and spirit. She is dedicated to her profession and is, simply stated, one of the best!!!
I have enjoyed the benefits of Denise’s Shiatsu massage. Working on a computer causes lots of tightness in my neck, shoulders and back. She always questions me about what I hope to get out of the massage and gives me ideas for helping me stay healthy every day. After a session with Denise I am relaxed, flexible and refreshed! She is a blessing in my life.
Denise creates a very comfortable and relaxing environment while receiving her skillful Thai Shiatsu massage. Denise has a innate ability to easily connect with what your body needs. It’s such a nice experience to be able to receive a good stretching, full body, Thai Shiatsu session. I highly recommend a Thai Shiatsu massage with Denise!
Denise Karsen's skills in providing Shiatsu massage is unparalleled. Not only is she extremely competent, Denise is deeply kind, and patient; always working at her client's level, never pushing too hard or crossing boundaries. Because of Denise's skills, compassion, and individualized approach to Shiatsu massage, I trust her without exception. Most importantly, with each passing session I have with Denise, I feel better longer, and am better able to maintain this sense of wellness until our next session.
Denise Karsen gave me back the ability to work each day. “Breathe” is her company and she lives her lifestyle. Calm and supportive and by her touch, she can feel everything that may be bothering you. She was a lifesaver for me. I had neck surgery and a few months after I was still very stiff and frozen, it was painful every day. Denise was the only person that was able to unfreeze my neck and shoulders and give me the joyful day that I was longing for. She is amazing and her technique of Thai-Shiatsu continues to not only relax any stiffness from computer work, but also aids in easing my chronic back issues. I urge you to see her. My life has been changed because of Denise.
