Have been to several massage places and I have to say Merrimack Valley Bodywork is by far the best! Tracy's is an exceptional massage therapist and very professional. I already have my next appointment!!

I'm a journalist and novelist and have severe back issues caused by typing. Marie is not just a massage therapist with stellar knowledge of musculature and other aspects of the human body, she's also empathetic and generous. Her massages contain a deep knowledge, both practical and emotional. She has helped me immensely, especially during a particular lower back crisis that went above and beyond the actual massage, and involved lifting me off the floor and helping me up stairs. She was there when I needed her most.
Her presence and energy manifest a relaxed atmosphere. Her knowledge and professionalism garners trust. And her gentle soul perpetuates profound healing.
I highly recommend Marie to anyone who wants deep therapeutic healing from a professional massage therapist.

Marie is consummate professional and she gives an incredible massage! I cannot tell you how much I look forward to my semi weekly sessions with her which are better than the prescription migraine medicine that I used to but no longer even take. Marie is hands down THE BEST! I have not returned to the private day spa that I used to frequent since I discovered Marie!

This message was written by a man who received a chair massage from me in April 2013 :
Ideally, we humans are angels to one another, helping to bring out the best from within each other. One of the key elements in serving our brothers and sisters in this way is the practice of presence. And that’s a quality you have in great measure. It’s true, the friends I was hanging with were observing your seated massage treatments. Besides the obvious skill, energy, graceful body mechanics, and all those physical attributes, it was your presence (which is really a form of love: attentive kindness and caring) that most impressed. My friends included school owners, authors, a Google massage leader, and other experienced therapists. We all surveyed the therapists offering massage (and bless them all for their generosity!), and each wanted to receive a massage from you.

I had neck pains for several months, and one session with Marie not only alleviated the pain, but has not returned and it's now more than a year. Her skill, mindset, and talent, not to mention she's just plain nice, puts her tops in my view!

I can't say enough about Marie. She is literally a God sent. She has been my massage therapist for the past year or so which has since developed into a wonderful friendship because she truly goes above and beyond. She provides meaningful information is professional, accommodating and just has such a positive perspective on the body's ability to heal. I could go on for days but the point is she is wonderful and I am so happy to have found her.

Ok, I don’t take the time to write reviews probably as much as I should, but I just couldn’t let my experience with Marie go unmentioned. She is an amazing and professional massage therapist that really understands how the human body works and how to relieve stress lying deep in your muscles. She is phenomenal and was able to break up the many knots I had lying deep in my tissue. She was incredible and will often ask how the pressure feels for you and if it needs to be adjusted. It was superbly relaxing and wonderful. I can't recommend her enough.
