- I was originally given a gift certificate to Massage Vida as a birthday gift and expected to go one time. I got such a great massage and learned so much from Vicky about my body during that session that I have become a regular client. I suffer from an autoimmune arthritis as well as Fibromyalgia and use massage as therapy, not so much for relaxation (however, it is very relaxing, too). Vicky and Sean always know exactly where my trigger points are and work those areas to decrease pain and inflammation. Vicky is experienced in essential oils, too, and uses different oils depending on my needs that day. I always leave feeling better and the improvement continues over the next several days. Both Vicky and Sean are extremely knowledgeable and skilled and I have recommended them to many people. The certificate was one of the best gifts I have ever received!One of the best presents I’ve ever received!
