  • Sarah Drake is remarkable with the massages she performs. She has given me massages for years and I would never go to anyone else. She is able to identify areas instantly that has tension and stress build up without me knowing this until she touches those particular areas. If not sure as a customer what type of a massage to get, just ask. She will define the different types of massages and always delivers. Besides getting a massage, she suggests certain types of stretching to do daily to avoid deep nerve issues from happening again. Also, she develops "natural" body cleaner and inhalers to release congestion which works great. Her strength, will-power, ideas & friendship for customers is amazing. She was meant to be an "organic & natural" masseuse!! Thank you Sarah!

  • After suffering a motorcycle accident I started going to Knot-Tense for stiffness in my neck and shoulders. Sarah did an outstanding job! My stiffness went away and my mobility vastly increased. I strongly recommend Knot-Tense and Sarah.
