Alternative Health Associates is my favorite massage place! Warm and professional staff with amazing services, which promote healing. They get my vote!

Alexandria Myotherapy is the best. Dina's folks are so knowledgeable about neck injuries that i really can relax while they heal the muscles of my neck and shoulders. I am grateful that I can have so much confidence in them!

I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL CLIENT OF THE HEALING TREE SINCE IT OPENED, ALMOST 10 YEARS AGO. I SEE MARYELLEN THORP EVERY MONDAY EVENING FOR A 90 MINUTE MASSAGE. I TRAVEL EXTENSIVELY. WHEN POSSIBLE, I SCHEDULE MY TRIPS SO AS NOT TO MISS MY MONDAY NIGHT APPOINTMENTS. MARYELLEN AND HER TEAM ARE SIMPLY TOP SHELF. I WOULDN'T EVEN CONSIDER GOING ANYWHERE ELSE.

I started massage therapy at The Healing Tree several years ago when I was undergoing some health issues. Of the several massage centers I have visited in my life I have found the Healing Tree to be the best. I consistently get great massages and the atmosphere is always comfortable and positive. After moving outside the city, I still go to the Healing Tree because I am so happy there and have created lasting relationships with several practitioners that have helped me in a multitude of ways. I would recommend the Healing Tree to anyone!

In my opinion, The Healing Tree is the best place to go for a massage. I tried several places before finding The Healing Tree and I feel I have found a "home". The staff is wonderful, the locations perfect, and the ambiance soothing and restful. My therapist, MaryEllen Thorp and the others I have worked with have helped me immeasurably with my health issues. I look forward to my weekly massage and schedule my week around those appointments. I highly recommend The Healing Tree.
