Kerryann at Naturally Zuri Massage is the most intuitive massage therapist I’ve ever worked with. Every visit she works out knots I didn’t realize I had, and she’s been amazing with helping me reduce some of the aches/pains associated with training for a marathon. She’s very kind, professional, and skilled. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Naturally Zuri Massage is the best massage I’ve received in a long time. She attends to all your concerns and trust me you’ll be feeling brand new after! Highly Recommend her! You won’t be disappointed and definitely returning when I have the chance.

I had an amazing Himalayan Salt Stone massage. I was deeply relaxed. Kerryann did a fantastic job on my back. She focused on the areas where I was tight and applied the right amount of pressure. Best massage I’ve received ever!!! She’s really good at what she does.

Great massage service. Clean and safe environment, which allows me to enjoy the service with no worries! Definitely going back.

Kerryann is one of the best massage therapists I have ever had! From the first session I had with her, I have not seen any other therapist because it just won’t be the same. The moment her hand touches my back, I fall asleep immediately. My favorite session is the Himalayan Hot Stone, definitely a must try!!

Every ache and tight area was given attention. Enjoying the combo of Himalayan salt stones, CBD, and aromatherapy benefits, made an unforgettable experience! Just what I needed.

All of the above and then some! I have definitely shared this experience with all my Girltrek sisters via txt and on social media as well. Hope to experience your services soon.

Kerryann has a calm and lovely office and a nice massage room with relaxing sounds/music. She definitely worked out more knots and tightness than I even knew I had. I could feel a big shift in my sleep (less restlessness, physically more relaxed, and deeper states) for a few days afterwards. Worth a visit!

I have been going for over a month and I very satisfied with the sessions. Would and will be recommending to my friends.
