TESTIMONIALS

"Meredith is not only very knowledgable, highly skilled, and intelligent, she is passionate about her work and helping patients through massage therapy. I observed her with patients and she showed a deep level of compassion and empathy for these patients who are not only undergoing medical treatments, but enduring the extreme amount of stress and anxiety related to their inability to conceive... I have come to gain a true appreciation of the benefits offered to patients with the merging of western therapies and holistic therapies. I think that Meredith Nathan has created a massage protocol that I believe wholeheartedly will compliment the therapies I treat my patients with and enhance their success while hopefully decreasing the stress level they are facing as they undergo the difficult and arduous treatments we prescribe."
