Betz Ulrich RN

I am a client of David Stauffer Therapeutic Massage therapist at Strokes for Folks in Rosemount. Right from the start David has been professional and trustworthy. I told him after my first massage with him, "This was the best massage I have ever received!"

I scheduled a massage with him because I was having some pains in my upper back and shoulders. After the first treatment, I received significant relief. After just one more massage, the pain was gone. I feel more flexible and aware of my body. I am a healthcare professional myself and have appreciated what he has taught me about the lymph system, my muscles and how to do some exercises on my own to keep my flexibility.

I feel very comfortable in referring my friends to David. He is therapeutic, genuine and a true professional.

I wanted you to know that I really enjoyed my tandem massage yesterday. I was feeling so great that I stopped by Cahill Salon for the ion cleanse. It was so cool to soak my feet. My colors changed from yellow to orange to black. I guess my liver was detoxing, too! Thank you for all that you have done for me. I am feeling so much better and actually excited to see what each day brings to me! See you soon.

Lynette has taught me just how beneficial regular massage is, not just for my aches and pains but also for my general health. I am able to maintain my current lifestyle which is very hard on my body. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic, an avid golfer and a runner, all of which are very physically demanding pursuits. Massage keeps my muscles loose, less toxic and improves my circulation. I also sleep more regularly and I am generally a happier person.

I found the staff at Strokes for Folks to be very professional and knowledgeable and caring. I was visiting from out of town and thought I'd be able to make it without my therapeutic massages but after a week without the regular twice a week massages, I Looked in the phone book and called and was set right up. After the very first session I experienced immediate relief from back and hip pain related to fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and tension. I was able to use three sessions and it was wonderful relief.

The thing I like most about going to Strokes for Folks is the one to one attention and individual care plan of my therapist. Massage has absolutely helped me. I never thought of massage as anything but a treat you give yourself if you went on vacation. Now I consider it an essential part of feeling healthy. IF I skip a treatment I can feel it!

Gina Pitera, Apple Valley, MN

Lynette really cares about you and is an expert at addressing specific musculoskeletal needs. I have been able to sleep through the night and wake up refreshed without pain through my body, a head ache, or tingling in my arms and hands. The calm atmosphere welcomes me at least once a month.

Amanda Crepeau. Lakeville, MN

I really like the individualized, tailored for you treatment. Lynette really listens to what you need and customizes your treatment to your personal needs. Before massage therapy my days were constant pain from a car accident. Now I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders from the pain relief and I don't even think about it now.

Cynthia Bratland, Hastings, MN

The thing I like most is the therapists experience and expertise. They know you as a person and explain what you need to do to feel better. They even show you what you can do yourself at home. Massage relaxes my back so it does not hurt as much and the time between treatments are lasting longer without pain. I can last longer at work where I twist and turn most of the time.

Mary (Homemaker/Student)

Thank you again for the wonderful massage a week ago. It was good to have my problem areas addressed for an hour, in addition to shorter sessions I had received prior and after your massage; my back and neck have felt really good this week! Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions about your experience in Rosemount and about your business. I really appreciate that. I'm excited to enter the career of massage therapy and will take Strokes for Folks into consideration as graduation approaches.

Jenny (LPN)

I feel soooo good today after my massage with David yesterday. The relief I feel I haven't felt for a long time. I didn't think I would feel comfortable with a man doing this but David helped me to be relaxed with his soft voice & tender but strong hands. Please tell him I really appreciated his professionalism, knowledge & his wonderful touch. Thank you for allowing me to have an appointment at such a short notice!!!

Patrick (Environmental Specialist)

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the remarkable work you have done! When I first started coming to you, I was a little skeptical that therapeutic massage could relieve the spasms, and sore muscles I was experiencing. I had been to my family doctor, was treated with prescription muscle relaxants and therapy. That approach was costly, time consuming and relied too much on drugs. After a lot of unnecessary pain and trouble, I was referred to a Chiropractor. That too was ineffective. I am very active, running marathons, and training 5 days a week. The problems I experienced were not overwhelming, but a nuisance that I believed was treatable.

Jan (Teacher)

I value being able to have a great massage right here, in Rosemount. The staff is flexible and very caring while giving a fabulous massage. The calm and pampering atmosphere is a soothing gift in my hurried life.

I have been getting massages every month for the last 3 years at S***** R*******'s and K*** I* T**** Massage. When I would go to these places I always had a different therapist, with usually the same routine with different levels of experience and intensity. I then saw a advertisement for Strokes for Folks and thought I would give it a try. After my 1st session, I joined the club. Lynette offers a wide variety of massage techniques and takes the time to really listen to me about where my pain is and where things have improved. She has the skills to apply different massage therapies to get the best possible outcome. It didn't take long to finally feel some results from seeing Lynette. I have more movement in my shoulders and hips then I have had in 15 years!

Pat (Receptionist)

I have received both "Seated massages" and "Full body massages" from Lynette. It never ceases to amaze me at how relaxed I am after these sessions. Lynette has a way of finding where I hold stresses in my body and addresses those spots with deep therapeutic massage techniques. Lynette also seems to listen to what type of massage my body needs and uses the appropriate techniques for each visit, whether it is deep muscle work or just a gentle tension relieving is great!

Diane (Insurance)

For me, with the stress of my job and personal life right now, getting a message helps me release built up tension and puts me in a much healthier state of mind.

Janelle (Loan Processor)

Thank you so much for all of your time and hard work taking care of us - we really appreciate it! I think the whole end of the month massage idea is wonderful - especially in the mortgage industry!! It is apparent in the attitude on "massage day" that it is doing wonders for the stress levels just when we need it the most. It has made me very much appreciate the effort to provide a pleasant work environment by the company. The massages I've received have been very appropriate for what my body was feeling that day! I have had the benefit of a deep down, knot breaking, therapeutic massage as well as an extremely relaxing, tension relieving massage - both of which were great! Over all, I feel this is a very good "bonus" for everyone. I hope we are able to keep with this new tradition and that it benefits your business as well. I know of several employees here that would love to use you outside of the designated monthly massages, including myself. Thank you so much, good luck and much continued success!

Lisa (Executive Assistant)

Absolutely gives you something positive to look forward to every month, you know will help you relax and you have time to yourself when you have everyone and their brother wanting something from you. It is very nice of the company to recognize that it does appear to help everyone get thru those last few days of the month and they are willing to continue to do it, because it is not something that most of us would take the time to do during the day because that would take too much time out of work. Knowing that Lynette is coming in to make us feel better for a little while is a huge pick me up (for me at least). I also like knowing that the other support staff look forward to it also.

J Hamlar, Inver Grove Heights, MN

Strokes for Folks was referred to me by a friend. I had been in the doctor's care for several years and was looking for any relief I could get for my physical symptoms. Lynette read my health history and took care to help my body regain wellness. After several sessions, I am happy to report that all of my medication dosages have been reduced. I have more energy and have hope for brighter days ahead. Strokes for Folks is a place of true healing!
