I really enjoyed my first time here at Hand & Stone. I have had many massages prior at various different places from massage place to full Spas. The reception/waiting area is comfy, and the girl at the front desk was sweet. My massage therapist, Erin, was wonderful. She went over my health sheet and asked what brought me in. I get massages specifically for pain relief, neck/shoulders & lower back/sciatica, so I personally look for a massage therapist that listens to my needs. I would rather attention be paid to these areas then have time spent on other areas like arms, feet, etc. that are not painful. Erin was able to pinpoint my lower back/sciatica pain and incorporated sports massage techniques to really work those areas. I had never had a massage therapist do these specific techniques and could feel the difference these methods made. Out of all the massages I have had, I would consider this one top two ever. I absolutely will be back to see Erin. I am thrilled to have a found a great massage therapist at a location close to home that it's overpriced or where I have to make an appointment months in advance.
