“I felt… grounded and peaceful…. Megumi has a warm, gentle, nurturing personality and really loves what she does. This shows at all levels, and makes the experience even better. ” – K.  
“Megumi is one of those individuals you meet and are instantly put at ease and feel like you’ve known her for a really long time. She is compassionate and takes the time to really focus on your needs and wants.” – Jeanne  

“Everything about the massage was excellent, Megumi was skilled, knowledgeable, supportive, warm, and professional, and I haven’t felt my sciatica pain since the massage. Fantastic!” - anonymous pregnant mama

"Megumi is very thorough and understanding. She not only knows self healing through one's own breathing, but she also understands you before you realize it. A wise soul indeed. I needed some alignment of the pelvic area. She did such gente healing that I have very little pain left. Just amazing!" - H.

"I did four sessions with [Megumi] during the various phases of my pregnancy and she was able to address my concerns every time. She is very compassionate and listens to you carefully. She has positive vibes and her touch is very relaxing. She used to always check on my healing progress and also gave me tips for my labor." - Chaman

"The week after our bodywork session, I felt great!! Really energized, yet sensitive. The last part helped me to have a internal visual process for connecting with my baby. I’ve been using it when I get those feelings of ‘Is this real?!’ Then we connect and it’s SO real!!! Also the gentle pressure really helped me to appreciate more the benefits of acknowledging the subtle. And I keep remembering that I deserve gentleness! Thanks!!!" - Ama
"Inner bodywork with Megumi borders hypnotherapy in the sense that some part of me goes away to discover something new. The only difference is there is still a strong sense of awareness. I know I am still 'here,' still in touch. "In my first session, I had the chance to “meet” my baby Mateo. I came to him for an answer, a certain kind of comfort. Mateo embraced me and told me without speech, 'Mom, I’m growing strong. Everything is as it should be: perfect.' It was a message only he could fully convey. I felt happy knowing he knew me already, the he could reassure me in this way. I felt liberated from chains of doubt, fear, uncertainty, and anxiety. "While my first session was about meeting Mateo with positivity, my second session was about togetherness. Megumi encouraged me to see and feel a stream of golden light connecting our hearts. I was soothed by this warmth. It was the ultimate reinforcement, with our 'due date' drawing near. "My prenatal bodywork sessions with Megumi serve their purpose, without question. I feel good knowing I can visit Mateo anytime I want or need to; that this golden light pulses between us every second; that we stay strong and healthy in mind, body, spirit; and that these affirming thoughts, feelings, and images will be with me through labor, transition, birth, and beyond. Together, Mateo and I build. "Thank you Megumi, for sharing with us your extraordinary sense of intuition through bodywork!" – Melissa

"My hips have been aching for weeks even after other prenatal massages and chiropractic appointment - now I'm pain free." - Donna

"I found Megumi when I had major back pain postpartum. She was very prompt in scheduling a session in my home, arrived on time and has magical hands. She helped tremendously with the [backpain] and a bonus was that it also helped with milk productions since I was a lot more relaxed after my sessions. It was too bad I didn't know about her when I was pregnant. Ladies, I highly recommend you invest in some TLC, pre and postpartum!" - Jessica

"During my online research for relief from acute pubic symphysis (PS) pain that I had been suffering for over a month I came across Megumi. Megumi suggested that she could do some therapy that other pregnant ladies said relieved their pubic bone pain. I did not care much about getting a prenatal massage - i was just desperate to get rid of the PS pain. I took the 1 hour massage. Megumi included a specific 'energy healing' therapy for my pubic bone pain and it worked wonderfully. I felt so much relief right after the session. Before the therapy even a 30 minutes walk would be painful. Next day itself my pain reduced from a 10 to 2. And since then I rarely feel it anymore! I wish i had the session earlier. "For the massage - it was relaxing. The environment was soothing. Megumi made sure that i was comfortable all the time with enough pillows all throughout the session.She also showed me some yoga postures to relieve my leg cramps and some pregnancy dance steps to relieve pain under my rib cage. "On a personal level i found Megumi very kind and compassionate. Due to my busy work schedule, I could schedule the massage appointment only after started my maternity leave and that was after a couple of weeks since we started communicating. Megumi was very prompt and patient in maintaining communication with me through text and phone call during that time." - Debopriya
