Most people have body image issues, and that can be especially exacerbated when you're transgender. Not only that, but I'm terribly self-conscious of the acne that's plagued me for decades and scars most of my torso. For these reasons, I've always been loathe to let a masseuse work on me. But the first time I met Diane and her staff, I knew Freedom was different. They make me feel not only welcome, but comfortable in my own skin and safe to let my guard down. And that was before I ever got on the table!
I've had three deep tissue sessions so far - one with Emily and two with Michelle. Both of these women are incredible at their craft. Absolute artists. I play roller derby, and they do wonders to soothe my angry muscles and joints. And the utter eradication of all the tension I carry around, omg.. The feeling of complete.. well.. freedom.. immediately after a session.. it's heaven <3
