  • I had been in two car accidents that left me taking 12-15 Advil daily due to the level of pain I was in. Driving, sitting, and laying down were problematic and sometimes excruciating. I had tried many types of physical therapy, strain/counterstrain therapy, ice, heat, you name it. Over a three month period I saw Monica 1-2 times a week. In that time period I've reduced Advil by half, tolerate daily tasks much better, and no longer take an hour to find a comfortable position to sleep in. Most important, I don't cringe when my kiddos hug me! She was the first therapist I've worked with that didn't believe in creating more pain to cure my current pain. Monica has a unique ability to listen to what your body needs to help you heal for which, I am eternally grateful. I would recommend her to anyone! --Wendy S.
  • When I first went to Monica for massage I had only an expectation of relaxation and stress reduction, great reasons on their own. I had suffered from hip and low back pain for years, worsening after a car accident in 2011. Monica easily identified problem areas and using her extensive knowledge, expertise and experience, she has been able to significantly reduce my symptoms of discomfort. By receiving massage therapy from Monica, I have been able to eliminate analgesics I took in order to reduce pain so that I can sleep and sit comfortably. My energy level has increased and I am exercising more now that I am not experiencing discomfort. I would highly recommend Monica as an adjunct therapy for stress reduction, relaxation, pain relief, and injury treatment. --Krista T, NP, RN, BSN
  • Whether it's my hip, my back, or my shoulder, Monica pinpoints the problem and provides lasting relief with no soreness afterwards. She also offers helpful suggestions and recommendations for preventative care between sessions. --Robert P.
  • My first massage was at age 86, at my doctor's request. After just one session my back pain was relieved considerably, more than it was with months of physical therapy. I was shocked! I see Monica every three weeks now, and I'm ninety now! --Georgette H.
  • I was born with a hip defect and I've been to at least a dozen massage therapists for ongoing pain relief. No one has come close to Monica's skill and talent. She has been of tremendous help. If I could commute from Vermont to Idaho one or twice a month to see her, I would! Coeur d'Alene is very lucky to have her. She's definitely missed here in Vermont. --Bryan H., Morrisville, VT
  • I have been using Monica's services both for myself and as a referral for my patients. She approaches her work not just as an intervention on the muscular level but on a much deeper level that creates real change in the myofascial system. This change allows for healing to occur and for the patient to move into new patterns that promote health instead of disharmony. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is interested in real change and not just palliative treatment. --Lassie R., Physical Therapist
  • I have been working with a number of health care providers for the past year (physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage) to heal from a deep sprain in my rotator cuff. Of all the avenues I pursued, Monica's massage treatments have proven to be the most clearly beneficial and have enhanced the results of my physical therapy regime. Subsequent to a session of her bodywork therapy, I experience rapid improvement in terms of range of motion, decrease of inflammation, alleviation of pain, etc. She definitely has my recommendation. --CS, Yoga Pracititioner
  • I want to thank you again for taking a generous amount of your time with me a couple of weeks ago to work on the chronic pain in my low back and hip. Your intuitive therapeutic methods blended with a thorough knowledge and expertise of Intracapsular Fascia Release was most impressive. As a massage and bodywork therapist myself for over 28 years it is always a joy to experience the rare quality of genuine concern for healing blended with an in-depth knowledge and skill to actually facilitate profound healing. --Shirley B, Massage Therapist
  • I have been a client of Monica's for almost 5 years. She is fantastic! Over the years I have had the pleasure of her therapeutic touch to relieve my various aches and pains from tennis elbow to all sorts of hip, neck and foot problems. All this is mixed with wonderful relaxation body work. Monica is always learning new techniques and seemingly always gets to the root of what ever is bothering me. I don't know how she does it but the degree of pressure she uses always seems to be perfect. She listens. She listens to what I have to say. She listens to what my body tells her hands. She listens. She is never chatty and only responds to questions and my desire for conversation. The space she has created to do this work is relaxing and lovely. I highly recommend Monica to anyone looking for a highly professional, intuitive, caring massage therapist. --Robin S.
