“I have recently been treated by Christine. She was excellent and helped remedy my issue of tight neck muscles. She listened carefully to my issue and her massage skills are excellent.” – Patricia G
“I met my therapist, Christine and my first impression was that she had a lovely, calming energy. A good start! The massage room itself was quiet and soothing with soft lighting and I settled right in. To make a long story short, I let Christine know that I liked a good amount of pressure and the massage ended up being just what I needed. Relaxing and blissful at times; so much so that I almost fell asleep twice but also deep and therapeutic. The best of both worlds. I highly recommend a massage with Christine at Dunbar Physio.” – Laurel W.
