I always feel great after my massages, and I’ve had different types, deep tissue and fascial stretch therapy so far, and both really helped me, especially with my shoulders and back. She has a quiet, comfortable, soothing setting that she does her massages, spa music and smells great.Annie M.
I got to meet Martina Kowalke, whose skills and bedside manner are exactly what you should ask for in an LMP. Strong and knowledgeable means the most important thing: she can fix you and you’ll come out relaxed and healed.Clint W.
Martina is one of the best massage therapists I been to, and I’ve been to a few. In the last couple years I had given up on help. I had been in a very bad car accident when I was young, which resulted in a broken femur. A broken femur, which didn’t heal correctly and had to be re-broken. I’ve also had 2 knees surgeries from torn meniscus issues on the same leg. All that being said… I have babied my legs for a long time, not wanting to deal with pain, and in turn my flexibility has gotten very bad. This lack of flexibility is not a good thing.
Martina uses a stretching technique therapy that is AMAZING. With this therapy I have gone from barely able to bend and reach my mid-thigh with my fingertips, to reaching my knees, to now reaching my past my shins! And the goal now is to touch my toes, with her help I will get there!
I’d also like to mention that I drive to see her from Seattle once a week. Yes… she is that fab and worth the drive. Her massage room is very clean, the decor is calming, and the aroma of her essential oils are soothing. Very spa like and tranquil.
I recommend her highly!
Thank you Martina, you are my hero.
Martina has an amazing talent! There are few people that you can go to for a massage that can just find your trouble spots. She us one if those people!! She has tremendous knowledge of the body and muscle groups, and she listens and feels how your body responds.Annie M.
