  • Robin has been massaging me for nearly 15 years, since I was pregnant with my son who is 14 now. I always come back! Other people give me gift certificates to other people, but Robin gives the best massage! She gets in DEEP tissue, sometimes using elbows when digging in deep on my sciatic nerves. I love it! If anyone is thinking massage, they should be thinking of Robin for the job. I look forward to seeing her soon…. where’s my phone?…..
