A review from a Yelp user, Pat B, wrote on 2/10/19 a top-rated 5 star review for Becky. It does not show on our Yelp site, due to her being new to Yelp. She wrote:

Becky gave me a massage last Friday and it was fabulous. I have a low back injury to the QL, and she really found it, and her massage helped the muscles relax. She is strong and has a ton of knowledge and experience. She helped me understand the difference between the benefits of icing and using heat, and how long and where to apply, also showed me how to get up out of bed, and good stretches to do. Finally, she worked on my hip flexors, and let me know that tightness there really leaves me vulnerable to injury in my low back. Loved it all! Highly recommend. Thank you Becky!

A recent review on Google from Amy W. (November 2018) describes how wonderful Megan’s work is:

Megan did a WONDERFUL job with my prenatal massage this morning. I’m off today, and I searched all weekend for an available appointment today for a prenatal massage when I lucked out and found Gainesville Massage Therapy. I’m 5 months pregnant with my second child, and my lower back stays on fire. She was a pleasure to talk to, paid extra attention to the areas I mentioned, and left me feeling absolutely amazing at the end. I will recommend this place to everyone, and I will absolutely be back for both a prenatal massage and a regular massage afterwards! The last massage I had was before my pregnancy, and it was somewhere else in Gainesville and was the worst experience I’ve ever had. So I was a bit nervous about trying another place that’s new to me. Thank you for a GREAT experience!!!


Allura

Allura is a graduate of Florida School of Massage (Spring 2015).  She has worked in chiropractic offices, spas, and does onsite chair massage events. While working in chiropractic offices, she did detailed therapeutic massage for the neck & back. Using connective tissue & neuromuscular techniques predominantly, while incorporating Swedish massage & reflexology, her work is slow, deep, & feels extremely caring. Her emphasis is on providing a safe and therapeutic environment for healing.

In addition to working as a massage therapist, she is currently a student at University of Florida studying Environmental Management of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Her vision of a sustainable future is synonymous with her view of massage therapy: a system – body or ecosystem – must be attended to holistically. She has volunteered through the WWOOF program to work on organic farms across the country. Yoga and the outdoors are some of Allura’s favorite interests.

A recent Google review from Sidney B. who loved her massage with Allura.

         ★★★★★ 5 days ago
Could not be happier with my experience. I woke up with a horrible pain in my neck and as a “chronic pain regular”, I knew the fastest resolution would be a massage. My normal therapist was booked all week, so I called here and was able to book a same-day appointment at a time convenient for me. Allura did a truly amazing job. She listened to me and definitely did what I asked. I was looking for pain relief first and foremost and she knocked it out of the park. I feel like a lot of places they don’t push hard enough. Allura had perfect pressure. I’m a student so obviously it’s a little expensive for me but worth the money! You get what you pay for!
