Shawn Bates is a talented and knowledgeable massage therapist and her abilities result in a massage that is both relieving and restorative. I know that she has anatomic and therapeutic training over and above that required to be a massage therapist, and that is apparent in her work. Whether I’ve pulled a muscle exercising or I’m just tired from a day’s work, Shawn invariably leaves me feeling refreshed and better. She is delightful and has been flexible in scheduling to meet my needs. Shawn was recommended by a friend who remarked that she was very unusual in both manner and treatment, and I remain grateful to him for sharing his good fortune.
