"I had an amazing 60 minute massage by Sierra today. I told her my shoulders and neck were tight and she spent so much time working on them with just the right amount if pressure. The room was quiet and peaceful and I felt relaxed the minute I arrived. When I realized the hour was almost up I almost started crying because I never wanted it to end. I love massages and have had many in my life but I have to say this was one of the best! And 90 dollars for an hour massage is such a steal! I can't wait to go back!!"
As an active child who was bumped and bruised often, rehabilitation and overall health quickly became a priority in Puumba's life and led her to a career in massage therapy.

Since then, she has been training in Deep Tissue and Sports massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Cupping and more.

"Puumba was great, very professional and in tune with muscles and tension. She found some aches and pains I never knew existed. My body was a bit jacked up before coming here. I would love to come back. Next go around I will spend more time on mid to low back more than feet. Thank you"
