The whole experience from our first call to the contracting down to the actual massage day was excellent. The organization side of things was simple and did not take long to complete. I appreciated the flexibility around the timing, the number of therapists, etc. The therapist did a fantastic job; everyone here really liked her and I got numerous thank you emails stating how "heavenly" it was to quote just one participant."

Our whole department was treated to the reward of on-site massage after a long stressful project had been completed. I must say it was the perfect remedy. We all had tight muscles in the neck and shoulder area and we were impressed with what an impact just 15 and 30 minute massages made. The therapists that Back In Touch assigned to our office really knew what they were doing. We look forward to their next visit. "
