"I love sharing these points with people. It's empowering when you learn to assist your body's natural healing processes. It brings me great joy to see people transform with this work!"
"Putting myself in Nell's capable and caring hands for an hour or more is true bliss, both energizing and completely relaxing at the same time. I come away feeling back to my center balance, and so grateful and joyful for Nell's abilities. She is intuitive and listens to my words and responds to unspoken cues during a session as well. I wish I were getting her acupressure massage right now! I highly recommend scheduling an appointment for yourself or recommending her to those you care for deeply."

"Receiving from Nell is like receiving from an angel. She offers the gift of Presence, which is felt in each and every highly attuned touch. The wisdom of the ancients passes through her opening every portal of the body temple to be infused with Chi. The River begins to flow once again and the body, mind, and spirit, are aligned.
You leave feeling the Chi and Glee of Being touched by Love!"
