“I have been seeing Dawn for over 3 years. I originally began working with her to treat lymphadema in my left arm. Over the months she began working on my back, feet and shoulders all areas where I experienced pain. As of now I have less pain I do not need any prescription drugs and my quality of life is excellent. I am able to work as much as I want and stay active. Dawn has helped me understand my body better. Her deep knowledge of human anatomy and physiology and her experience are amazing! In her practice she shows integrity, kindness and compassion. SMRT is very effective. If you have pain or simply want to feel better I highly recommend SMRT.” Ann
“Once I tried an SMRT massage with Charlie, no other massage would fit the bill! Last summer while building a large koi pond, Charlie’s massages really made me feel renewed and ready for more work. This work and Charlie himself kept me physically able to do all that work. I now have two hour massages with him and what a treat they are. In fact, I’m scheduled to see him in two weeks and I can’t wait!” Holly
“I have been seeing Dawn for years and I don’t know what I would do without our sessions. She has successfully treated me for a variety of aches and pains. I do not live close to her office but am willing to drive to see her because her technique has worked far better than other body work modalities I have tried. Dawn is very knowledgeable and professional and truly cares about her clients. I would recommend her without reservation.” Bonnie
“I am an enthusiastic client of the SMRT Pain Relief Center. I have experienced Dawn and Tammy and yoga class. Each experience has been unique and positive. Tammy’s acupuncture is so different than my prior experience. She blends other techniques rather than sticking in some needles and leaving the room. I’m not sure of the technical terms; she does a wonderful form of massage on my back first which I think makes the needles less painful and more effective. Then while the needles on my back work, she does massage on my lower legs HEAVEN. For part two she works around my head and does more massage on my lower legs and feet. The hour passes in moments and I feel so relaxed. She gets great results. She literally works on all body systems in a treatment so I get help with both physical and emotional issues.
I have been a client of Dawn’s for years and she has an uncanny ability to identify the root cause of a symptom and alleviate the problem. I was struggling with nausea and Dawn worked on my back and fixed it. It was weird. Evidently some rib of other was out of place. I don’t understand it, but it sure did help.
I can’t recommend the SMRT Pain Relief Center highly enough. All their professionals are the very best in their specialty and are committed to addressing the unique needs of each client.” Karen
