Nirvana's Team

Communication between our clients and therapists is a must. If our pressure isn’t ‘just right’, please let us know.  Nirvana Massage Therapy understands that the same therapy isn’t appropriate for every client, so sessions begin with a review of your history and therapy is customized to provide you the most benefit. Clients come to us for different reasons. Many come to us for our deep tissue, others for sports massage to rehab an injury or as part of their training program. Whatever brings you to Nirvana Massage Therapy, we look forward to helping you achieve greater wellness.
