"Boundless is absolutely wonderful! I did a massage with Tracy, and it was by far the best massage I've ever received. The therapists here are great about working with your goals and adapting the style of massage and technique to what you need and what they decipher from working with you. It's actually adaptive, not just a massage where you say you want more work on a certain area and they just spend 5 more minutes doing Swedish there. Highly recommend, and will be back!" - Merritt C.
