• Bio

    Angel is one of our most requested and most rebooked therapists. Known for her bubbly and energetic personality, Angel is an engaging and knowledgeable massage therapy professional with deep understanding and insight into her craft. She is able to immediately bond with new clients, making them feel welcome and listened to, and she brings special warmth and compassion for people with chronic pain and tension, as she has suffered from various forms of chronic pain and tension herself in the past..  

    Angel's work combines a nurturing touch with a well-honed ability to identify and address specific areas of acute and chronic tension, and deeply and profoundly work through, releasing tension and the related discomfort, without pain or discomfort. She is skilled at maintaining a sense of connection and communication with her clients, enabling a "feedback loop" with the client to ensure that the pressure level during the massage is maintained at an optimal level for the client's comfort.  Her specialties include Swedish, pregnancy massage, deep tissue, sports therapy, trigger point work, myofascial therapy (MFT), and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF-stretching). 

    Angel specializes in working with people who experience chronic pain, or otherwise need deep work but have had past difficulty in balancing the need for deep work against the discomfort normally associated with it.  Through a combination of varied technique, intuition, and a keen awareness for muscle tension, Angel is able to eliminate deep muscular tension with little to none of the discomfort clients may have experienced from "deep" work with less experienced therapists at other practices. She is equally happy working with clients simply seeking gentle relaxation massage.

  • Erin B.

    Today I went back after three years (when I tried them with groupon) and after a lot of research, I settled on Angel as my therapist.  I booked online about 5-6 weeks ago and was very eager for it!   I work as a hairstylist full time now and the last year and a half have been a wreck on my body.  The busier I get at work, the more tension and pain I have.  So I committed to myself to get regular massages and wanted to find somewhere that offered a membership/competitive rates and was local business.  

    The facility - Clean, simple and comfy.  Nothing more, nothing less.  I just need somewhere to sit while I wait.  The chickens outside are a bit loud though.  

    The staff - Everyone working there, including one of the owners, was great.  Very helpful, pleasant and I was offered water quite a few times.  

    The massage - OMG I am in love with Angel.  I'm a wimp when it comes to massages and have had some that were too firm (even with my crazy tension) and caused me to feel a lot of pain after.  Angel was able to find a good pressure that made me comfortable and eased.  She worked through all of my troubled areas during the time and even reviewed with me what my problem areas were.  I felt so comfortable with her and it was the first massage that I felt able to relax and enjoy it.  

    I already booked through the end of the year with Angel and can't wait to be back.

    Like many people, I found out about Inner Harmony through Groupon and I have to say this is probably one of the best groupon deals I have purchased. I had total of 3 tandem sessions so far, and the last session my boyfriend and I decided to upgrade to 90 minutes because based on our first 2 sessions we know an hour is just not enough. And I can tell you, it's totally worth the extra small fee. 

    Between my boyfriend and I, we had sessions with Bruce, Annie, Chadd, Angel, and Rashawn. All of them are great and we always walked out so feeling much better. I loved the fact that they listen to our concerns before the session and check on the pressure level and maintained it throughout the session. After the session, the therapists give a quick recap and point out things that they might have notice during the session. They always remind us to drink a lot of water afterward to avoid being dehydrated (I was never told at the other massage places I've been to). I appreciated the little talks before AND after the session; this shows me that they really do care about their clients.

    As with the scheduling, I didn't find it as difficult as what some reviewers experienced. I had booked my appointments through online system and also by phone. I got email confirmation the next business day and I did not have problems reaching the front desk person either. Not to mention, the front desk person was so accommodating with my request. 

    One area where they can improve on though is to call the client if there is any changes to the scheduled appointment. My first scheduled appointment with them was rescheduled 30 mins earlier than the original appointment in order to better accomendate other clients for that day. I was only notify by an email (which I don't necessary check on daily basis), but luckily I saw it and adjusted my schedule and everything turns out fine. But definitely a phone call and an follow up email would be a much better approach. Aside from that, I've been very happy with Inner Harmony and I will definitely be back for more massages.

    I have been to Inner Harmony Massage for over a year introduced by a Groupon deal.  Usually I don't write Yelp review but have decided to write an excellent review.  

    Angel has "magic hands".  Literally her palms are warm/hot.  At the first encounter  I thought she was using a hot stone.  She uses her advantage and glides her warm/hot hands on stiff muscles slowly.  Her hands have eyes and can detect where the blood is not circulating well.  I listened to her recommendation that my lower body needs massage rather than my normal problem area (neck, shoulder blades, and lower back).  She was right.  I started to have more frequent muscle cramp on my feet.  So I requested to work on my lower body (hips, thighs, and calves) for the last two sessions.  She mentioned that my lower back pain is stemming from my lower body's ill blood circulation.  Wow, nobody mentioned it in the past.  I feel GREAT.  I recommend Angel.
