“I have known Angelique Castagna for over 15 years. Angelique is a highly educated and competent massage therapist who successfully treats a broad spectrum of conditions from inducing a deep mind/body/spirit state of relaxation to therapeutic modalities treating a variety of bodily ailments. She has helped me deal successfully with a chronic and debilitating back injury. Kind, compassionate, client- oriented, and understanding, I highly recommend her services……a very satisfied, long standing client.”
“Angelique is the best masseuse I’ve ever worked with! I came to her with a hip tendon issue that had been bothering me for months, and after 2 sessions, it was gone! She has also given me a lot of great stretches and yoga to do because I have Fibromyalgia and tend to tighten easily. I’ve never worked with anyone who has her knowledge of the human body. I highly recommend her!”
“I have been receiving healing massage from Angelique for over 10 years. I always leave her table feeling lighter and happier, my physical pain is always reduced and often eliminated, so I can continue working in my profession as a landscaper. Angelique knows the human body. She is a healer! It is my pleasure to recommend Angelique as a massage therapist!”
