Great therapist

Had a great massage, so went back for a second one. I had been in a car accident before my visit and I found the massage very helpful....not just relaxing. Also a nice setting.

I knew that I liked this massage the first time and I went and part of going back to Placencia was to go to Lee again. I didn't remember that the MOMENT she laid hands on that she is MAGIC. Truly one of the best massages of my life. Run, don't walk, when you arrive in Placencia to sign up... More

!st thing U should do is get on "What's Happening in Placencia & fb Placencia," You will find the owner Lee has morning classes at the Spa. We made a morning class I think they call Qi Gong, taught by a lady from Aurora, CO. The following day was a yoga class we missed because we got on late w/phone... More

Wind your way down the path into the secret garden, find the receptionist, and sign up for a massage. Lee has been doing this for about 20 years and really knows her stuff. I felt like a slab of jello when she was done. I'd go back to Placencia just for a few more massages.

Lee now has an assistant and is offering massages for couple as well as four-hand massages for individuals. She has really brightened up the décor and it was, like a few years ago, a terrific massage.

Lee is fantastic, and knows what she's doing. Have had massages by many professional therapists, and my wife and I agree - Lee is one of the best. Her studio is set in a breezy, quiet, peaceful garden in the heart of Placencia. We'll keep going back!

I was expecting a great massage based on the reviews on TA. Maybe my expectations were high, but this was a very middle of the road massage at best. I have a tennis ball in my car that does just as well.

Today I had the great pleasure of relaxing with a wonderful massage from Lee. It was absolutely fantastic!! Setting is beautiful ~ you feel like you are in a tree house with the sounds of beautiful music and birds chirping. I carry my stress in my shoulders and Lee knew just how to work out the knots in my muscles.... More

I was fortunate to walk in off the street and get a 90-minute massage. Lee is magnificent--talented, strong and intuitive. She knows how to work out knots and provide an invigorating and relaxing massage. Her spa room, set above the Secret Garden restaurant, is like a tree house! So nice to have a breeze and birds as part of the... More

This is my first time to do Swedish massage. It turned out to be great. While doing massage, the music was played. You would feel like in a jungle with fresh air. Our muscle sourness due to canoeing was totally relived. Lee is truly an brilliant professional. Highly recommend!
