Massage Therapy

Testimonials

"This was my first massage, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. However, this was a pleasant first-time experience for me. The atmosphere was calm and everyone was very nice. Shelley, my massage therapist, was very friendly and easy-going. I enjoyed talking with her. The only thing you could have done to make it better would be to make time go by slower! Haha! The experience was great all around. It convinced me to come back for another!"

"When I arrived, my therapist Denise was very accommodating when I asked to have aromatherapy added to my massage.  Her sweet disposition and flawless technique made me feel so much better afterwards.  I loved her choice in music too.  My husband was so happy with his massage by Danielle.  He’s a little shy and described her as “respectful” and said she “did such a good job”."

"I enjoyed the atmosphere, cleanliness, and attention from the massage therapist as she worked hard on every area of my body and listened to what I wanted.  This was a much better experience than I have had in other local places.  Keep it up!"
- Deanna
"I really felt appreciated and cared for from the time I first walked in, until the time I left. Denise took the time to listen to my concerns and customized a massage that targeted the problem areas that I was experiencing. We talked about different things that I can do when I am at home that can help me get to my goal of being pain free. This is exactly the experience that I was looking for! This was honestly the best experience I have had with massage therapy. In the past the massages I received seemed generic and rushed. Also, cost is important to me and I found Relax prices to be very reasonable. This has not always been the case with other massage therapy practices."

"The whole thing was really great. Shelley, the therapist was professional and thorough. Her technique was really great, felt a little different than some of the other massage I’ve had in a good way. She explained that because I was so pregnant she could not use as much pressure which is a bummer but I am glad she let me know. This is definitely one of the best massages I’ve had, if not THE best. I will be back to of a postpartum massage so I can lay on my stomach and get firmer pressure."

It’s been a few years since my last massage therapy, but your environment is much more cozy and inviting more than any other I’ve been to. You all have a wonderfully inviting and relaxing space, from the music to the comfortable lighting and aromatherapy! I immediately felt at ease when I stepped in the door.

I’ve always been a little hesitant when choosing a massage therapy practice – it’s important to myself and my body that I make the right choice, and that I feel comfortable while I’m there – and I know I definitely made the right choice this time. 

I met Denise for the first time and she was super warm and welcoming. She was attentive and made sure the massage pressure was comfortable for me before working her magic. I really did have an outstanding experience! Your care and commitment for what you do is noticed; thanks for a great first experience! 🙂 I’m already feeling better and am counting down the days until my next appointment. 🙂

I first came to Relax! Massage Therapy due to the high stress from my job and anxiety in my life. I also wanted to reward myself for working out at the gym. After my first massage, I knew I had found what I was looking for–a place to de-stress, relax, and feel rejuvenated. I have been getting weekly massages for over four years now and it has resulted in higher productivity at work, reduced anxiety and a greater sense of well-being. Thank you, Gretchen!!

Dr. Moffett, D.O.M, referred me to Relax! Massage Therapy. Computer mouse overuse and bad ergonomics at work had provoked agonizing pain in my right shoulder and arm. Although the therapeutic massage wasn’t exactly fun, Gretchen knew what she was doing and I felt a difference after the first treatment. I received six treatments, each within 3-4 days of the next, and by the last one I was pain-free. I have been pain-free ever since, and now I receive regular bodywork for the pleasure, not the pain!

“I’ve been getting massages for years, and came to Relax! Massage Therapy after trying several other massage therapists in Wilmington. Since finding Gretchen, I haven’t been anywhere else! She gives the best massages I have ever received. The important thing, though, is that she has been a source of support as I have struggled through the death of my husband. She has helped me survive an extremely difficult time, and I don’t know what I would’ve done without my weekly massages to get me through this. I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and am so grateful for her love and support.”

About a year ago, I added regular massages with Gretchen to my calendar hoping they would help relieve some of the pressures of a busy work and family life with three children under the age of 7. At each session, Gretchen asks questions and listens carefully to what’s going on in my life and with my body so she can address problem areas with the right combination of massage techniques. As a result, I’m more focused at work, my concentration is improved, and I’ve got more energy for my family. Speaking of family, I booked a beach weekend get-away with my wife as a Valentine’s Day gift. As an additional surprise, Gretchen agreed to travel to our hotel with her massage table to give us a couple’s massage and show me massage techniques to help my wife relax. My wife loved it!

I’m a stay-at-home mom with two young children, a five-year-old and a one-year-old. I put everything into making my kids’ days comfortable, fun, and enriching, so it was devastating to me when I started suffering from debilitating tension headaches and dizziness that the doctors couldn’t diagnose. Instead of being able to play with my children, I was forced take pain relievers and lie quietly on heating pads to get some relief. Someone suggested trying massage therapy, and I found Gretchen. It’s like she can read my body with her hands! After my first massage with Gretchen, the symptoms subsided and now, after regular massage treatments, they’re almost gone. An added bonus for me is that Gretchen is such a good soul with a wonderful, positive outlook on life—she always gives a hundred percent. Thanks to her 100 percent, I’m back to giving my all to my two kids, just as it should be.
