Mary-Claire was so friendly and knowledgeable. The massage was amazing. My muscles were a lot looser afterwards. I definitely feel better. It was a very relaxing and wonderful experience. I can't wait to go back. I know that her massages will help improve my pain.

There are no words that could explain how wonderful Mary Claire really is! She worked her magic on me with a Ashiatsu massage and using Cupping therapy for a chronic shoulder pain. It left me feeling relaxed and renewed. It's worth it.

During the past 15 years I have experienced a range of practitioners and styles of massage therapy, when I have an opportunity to go to Affinity I leap at the chance as I know that I will be in excellent hands/feet under Mary-Claire's expertise and I always leave grateful.

Mary Claire has been my massage therapist for close to 10 years. I trust no one else to keep me in working shape for my grueling work load in surgery. Her feet are absolutely magic!

Very relaxing and stress relieving all tightness and stiffness relieved. Many thanks!

Mary-Claire did an excellent job stretching and relieving the tension in my legs and hips. Marathon training has taken its toll and this is exactly what I needed.

After 90 minutes of sheer relaxation with Mary Claire, I left feeling so much better. She has magic feet! I went to her with a lot of muscular pain in my back. It is much better after my session with her.
- Janet Reder 9/10/14
I really enjoyed the session. I like it more than hand deep tissue massage!
- Warren Bell 8/30/14
Mary-Claire definitely knows what she is doing. I've had shoulder issues and I'm feeling better after one treatment.
- Jeff 8/20/14
I am kicking myself for not signing up for a full hour, but it was deep AND relaxing, something I have never experienced in deeper massages. I can't wait to learn it and save my hands. I am still feeling relaxed from the work, where normally the tension would appear pretty soon after a massage. Thanks again.

Professional consultation before beginning session. Talented feet! After a year of battling cancer, I was in 'good hands' ... actually, 'great feet.' I trusted you and had an excellent 90 minute experience. Thanks!

If I was to describe my 90 minutes ashiatsu massage session with Mary-Claire in one word, I would say: OUTSTANDING! This was my first appointment with her so I had to fill out a short form about relevant medical history and areas to focus during the massage. It was nice that we got this done in 10 minutes before the time scheduled so that the massage started exactly on time. She made me feel welcomed and at ease and she started out by a warming up part that gradually transitioned to the more intense part in a perfect way. She listened to my feedback regarding the pressure. She also paid attention to work an all the areas I needed and she did it perfectly, making the muscles melt like butter! Perfect sliding along the back muscles, arms, legs, perfect pressure making all the tension and stiffness disappear! At the end I felt so light and so refreshed! That night I slept like a baby and the next day I was so full of energy! What a genius technique!!! Thank you, Mary-Claire!

The massage I received recently was fantastic. The perfect amount of pressure that I asked for, she listened to everything and focused and what I felt needed the most work, and was very courteous and also couldn't have been nicer. I would personally recommend anyone to her that was looking for a wonderful massage from a wonderful person. Thank you again for the outstanding massage.
- Richard P 4/9/14
The message was more than I expected. Amazing. She totally was able to release pressure that no one has been able to release in 6 months.
- Kathy 3/6/14
Absolutely awesome! Went in with pain down leg and lower back with every step. Came out loosened and no twinge when I walk. Thanks so much.
- Buck 2/26/14
From start to finish, a very pleasant and healing experience. Easily the best deep tissue massage I have ever experienced.
- Mike S 1/17/14
Mary-Claire is the BEST massage therapist period. I am a life- long athlete and runner and a former dancer and gymnast. I have had my share of injuries and just aches and pains that go with the territory. Therefore, I have had many massages. Once I found Mary-Claire (through my chiropractor several years ago) I was hooked. She really does have the skill and knowledge to help me maintain a pain-free lifestyle and still keep very active. I highly recommend her any chance I get.
- Karen Muse 1/17/14
The ashiatsu massage is the best I've ever had. Amazing!
- Alejandro A 1/11/14
Mary-Claire is wonderful! Her attention to detail and always knowing exactly where I need the most work is great! She is also so personable and we talk like long time friends every time we see each other.... I would not go anywhere else!
- Diana N 1/2/14
Honestly ... Mary-Claire is a Master of her trade. In 30 years of being a massage therapist myself and having received massage all my life, when I found Mary-Claire I stopped looking and stopped going to anyone else. She has a dexterity with her feet and an intuitive skill that totally amazes me every time! I feel so lucky to have a therapist like Mary-Claire that I am willing to drive (actually my husband drives because truthfully I could not even think about driving after a massage with Mary-Claire) the distance over busy highways from my house which is on the other side of town to Mary-Claire, just so I can be assured of a great massage every time ... and I am NEVER disappointed.

Wonderful! The massage I get is always the best. If you ever need a great massage go see Mary-Claire at Affinity Massage.
- Mark 9/29/13
Mary-Claire is a true professional and outstanding massage therapist. She is attentive to the needs of her clients and stays on the cutting edge of her skills. If you like deep tissue massage, Ashiatsu at Affinity Massage Studio is exactly what you are looking for. i highly recommend it and won't go anywhere else myself.
- Chris Marshall 9/29/13
Mary-Claire was friendly and receptive to my first ever massage. She understood my condition piriformis syndrome and explained what was happening to me. Her thorough massage REALLY worked and I left there without pain. She printed out a few stretches to work on so that I can help keep this under control. I will definitely visit again if things get out of control. Thanks so much, Sharon
- Sharon 9/22/13
OMG my hour and half barefoot ashiatsu massage was awesome! This was my 1st time trying this type of massage. I get deep massages at least once a month at various places and I have to say this was the best ever. See you again soon!

Linda R says:
Mary-Claire was great! This was my first visit and I was really impressed by her professionalism, the overall appearance of the office and relaxing feeling I got from the moment I walked in. I loved the fact that I was the only one there at my appointment time...not the busy, noisy, corporate atmosphere of a Mitchells. Mary-Claire was able to pin-point the exact area of my pain and give me tips on how to help alleviate the pain in between visits. She is clearly a therapist who knows what she's doing. I will definitely be back and plan to book an appointment for my husband as well!
I plan to return.
Pamela N says:
I have had massages before, but never one like this. I did the 75 minute Ashiatsu - it was fabulous! Great pressure and she knew right away where my trouble spots were. And the massage is so great - I would forget sometimes that she was working with her feet! I plan to try and return more often!
Joy R says:
I recieved a bamboo - fusion massage and it was great. The heat of the bamboo was very relaxing and the pressure was perfect. Mary - Clair was very kind and answered all of my questions. I am looking forward to recieving a Ashiatsu massage Joy Rovno
Recommend M-C wholeheartedly.
Mary-Claire gives the best massage ever!
Best 90 minutes ever
Best Birthday Present Ever!
Much better Marathon!
Nothing Will Keep Me From Returning Every 2 Weeks!
