I’ve been going to Edilma Avendano for massage for many years. She is wonderful! She does the Rolfing technique of slow, deliberate movements on my muscles that gives me the maximum results for my body. I carry a lot of tension in my neck, shoulders, and mid back from a fall I suffered 30 years ago. I was in much pain for years and had tried many kinds of healing techniques such as wearing a neck brace, physical therapy, chiropractic, holistic chiropractic and acupuncture. After getting no results from any of these, I tried massage therapy.

I’ve found Edilma’s massages to be the most beneficial. Her excellent technique helps me release my muscles by letting go not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally.

Edilma has taught me that everything is connected—your body, mind, spirit, and emotions—and how important it is to take care of yourself in all of those areas. I highly recommend Edilma Avendano at Matiz Wellness Center for the best in healing massage. She and her family will take very good care of you!
