“I love the atmosphere of the little cottage.  With the music playing and a fire in the wood stove, you start to relax before the massage even begins.  Annette is a very friendly person who demonstrates a concern for those she treats.  Her massage techniques vary from a therapeutic firmness to a relaxing gentleness depending on what your body and mood requires.  She is one of the best I have been treated by.  I have back trouble and tightness in my shoulders that periodically cause headaches severe enough to prevent me from my daily activities.  No only are Annette’s massages effective for reducing the pain, I have some time to relax and enjoy myself.  Overall, massage makes me feel great and allows me to enjoy life pain-free.

“My hands and arms were constantly numb and aching.  Medication and chiropractic treatments were not helping me.  I was looking at surgery and disability from work.  From the very first massage, Annette has helped me so much and has given such relief whether from a therapeutic massage, relaxation massage or foot reflexology.  I’m very thankful to her.  I have to also say that I love Annette’s little log cabin nestled among the trees.  I get such a cozy feeling when I walk inside it to see the wood burning stove in the corner, feel the warmth coming from it, hear the crackling fire.  Before Annette’s massage even begins, I start releasing my day’s stress.”

“Annette Issler has been my massage therapist for the past 3 years.  Being a massage therapist myself, I particularly looked for someone who had “amazing hands”, demonstrated intuitive capabilities and displayed impeccable professionalism.  Annette has exceeded my expectations.  In her quaint massage cottage, she offers a sanctuary for healing and well being to those who are stressed, in pain, injured and to those who just need to “get away from it all.”  Constantly improving her skills, Annette actively pursues professional development to offer her clients the most advanced techniques in massage care.  She has helped me personally by improving physical limitations.  I am fortunate to have such a talented healer as my massage therapist and recommend Annette very highly.”

“I found Annette Issler thanks to a friend and colleague.  I was a mess:  stressed out and as tight as a drum.  I arrived at the cozy warm cottage with the wood fire burning and the warm and welcoming massage table.  Soft music and nature sounds started to melt my tension.  Then, this angel with magic fingers found the tight spots and coaxed them into release, pulling the tension out of my body.  In only an hour, I went from a bundle of stress to a relaxed person looking forward to the drive home!  The drive out of town lets me unwind, the setting is a mini retreat, and the massage is a gift of grace.”

“Massages by Annette provide a full sense experience with perfect country setting, tranquil music, relaxing room fragrance and just the right amount of pressure for sore muscles.”

“I look on my calender and and jump for joy!  Today is my massage appointment.  As soon as I get into my car my stress starts to dissipate as I drive to my favorite little cabin in the country.  A crackling fire and a warm welcoming smile greet me upon arrival.  All the tension and knots in my body flee with Annette’s therapeutic touch.  The conversation and relaxation are delightful, what a perfect evening!”

“Massage can be a very intimate experience. When you’re not completely comfortable with your massage therapist, it can be difficult to entirely relax, which inhibits the effectiveness of the massage. Annette is only one of two massage therapists that I have tried that I am comfortable enough with to get the most benefit from the massage (the other being my sister-in-law in Ontario). This is not to say that the other massage therapists are no good, only that Annette’s personality puts me at ease and I can fully relax.

In addition to having a relaxing personality, Annette is a very good massage therapist. One of the things she has helped me with is the position of my shoulders. I dislocated my right shoulder in January of 1997 and my left in December of 2003. As a result, my shoulders would sit too far forward due to imbalanced muscle tension between my back and chest. Over the years, I’ve seen a number of physiotherapists and massage therapists, but it wasn’t until my third massage with Annette that my shoulders naturally went back to where they’re supposed to be. This has been a major factor in pain free training in the gym.”

In case nobody has told you lately – you are amazing!!! Yesterday afternoon I started to feel some relief from the pain.  As today wore on I got brave.. I almost finished painting my bedroom! Right now I am pain free – I feel like a million bucks. For 2 weeks I’ve been popping pain pills & still feeling crummy.  Your hands are magic and your heart has truly blessed me.  Thank you so much!! :)
