i just returned home from the best massage i've ever had with Miriam at Healing Tree. She combined several wonderful techniques to target work related aches & pains. these techniques ranged from incredibly relaxing, to tension releasing, to targeting highly focused areas of discomfort. her prices are quite reasonable considering her background & training combined with the quality of the service she provides. I left walking on air, with a skip in my step & a smile on my face. i look forward to my next visit to Healing Tree - as should you.
Never Again – I purchased a gift certificate for my son (I live out of area). She wasn't there when he arrived, wouldn't return calls to reschedule or refund the $105. Took it to BetterBusinessBureau for help in resolution; she wouldn't respond to them either.
Great place to spend the afternoon – good treatments. nice staff. great location. clean and affordable. I will go there again. I will recommend to my friends
More than a massage... – Through massage, I typically seek two pretty basic results: relaxation and the loosening of tight muscles. I went to Miriam on a similar quest, with an added complication of back pain that another massage therapist had been unable to remedy. Miriam came through for me on every account. She is wonderfully knowledgeable about a wide variety of massage techniques, and she was able to adapt her approach to what my body needed. That knowledge combined with her intuitive sense for healing made her the perfect medicine for me. I left my appointment relaxed and with looser muscles, and also feeling much more deeply healed. Thank you, Miriam.
Feeling healed & rejuvenated – Miriam is a wonderful massage therapist. She has a true intuitive understanding of the needs of the body. I felt completely cared for and received a wonderful hour on her table. I have had many massages in my life and would rank my time with Miriam as among the best. Many thanks!
Horrible Experience! – I have never experienced such poor customer service in my life. Miriam cancelled my appointment the day of the massage without any explaination. Since, it was being paid for with a gift cert, Miriam agreed to refund me the amount of the cert. since I was unable to rescedule. This all seemed very kind and ethical. Let me emphasis "seemed kind and ethical." Miriam did not send my refund when she said she would, nor did she return phone calls. Understand, I was nothing but understanding, untill this started to drag on for weeks. I finally left another message, saying I would have to result to other collection methods if she wouldn't return my calls, and guess what? She actually called back! She said that she had been sick, and would put the check in the mail the following Monday. I said I understood, but even a phone call to let me know what was going on would have been greatly appreciated. Well, the following week, still no check until Friday. I thought, OK better late than never. I opened the envelope and she had only refunded HALF OF THE PROMISED AMOUNT! I have called her several times since, as have my friends who purchased the gift certificate, and she won't answer the calls, or respond in any way.
I have dealt with many professionals in the healing arts, and I have never run across someone with this type of poor morals and ethics. I consider her acts to be very dishonest, and all of this would have not happened if she had just been true to her word. I trust people (especially in this type of field) to speak and honor the truth. This was absolutely unbelievable.
For the record: A private scheduling change had occurred. I offered to change the appointment for the client, but was denied. Was told originally it was for an hour, which was scheduled. Though I don't refund gift certificates, I gave her back the money for her appointment. She was repaid for an hour. None of my clients have ever been less than incredilbly fullfilled by my massages. I'm sorry this turned out as it did and a rescheduling didn't occur. Perhaps if she had rescheduled, she would have experienced something far more wonderful. Again, apologies.
Best Massage in town! No hassle parking and wonderful people. – My girlfriends and I all had a wonderful experience here! Wonderful Massage and exfoliation. Not to be missed!
Miriam is beyond talented, she is gifted! – Miriam is without a doubt the best I have ever experienced! My husband and I have homes in Los Angeles as well as Portland, and although we have been treated by some of the most famous and highly recognized professionals in Los Angeles, we ONLY go to Miriam in Portland. She treated my husband for back and neck problems that he had experienced for years and those other famous folks couldn't give him much relief (and what relief he did get didn't last for more than a day or two). Under Miriam's care, he has been pain-free for many months and still travels to come see Miriam about once a month for maintenance. In my case, I had been experiencing knee and hip pain for almost 20 years and was told to get surgery. Once Miriam started working on me, the results were nothing short of a miracle. She also provides great insight into the physical causes of a person's pain (comments about my incorrect posture or seating position) that make a huge difference in maintaining my well-being. What Miriam has isn't just a learned skill. It's an art as well as a gift. Thank you, Miriam!! Keith and I love you!
Best massage in Portland! – I see Miriam approximately once a month due to my grueling work schedule (i.e. 12-14 hours shifts on nights), which results in a highly stressed body and frequent back pain/discomfort. I have been seeing Miriam since I moved back to the Portland Metro area (from Boston) in 2003. Miriam has very gifted hands and has the ability to find my problem areas right away. She knows how to relax my muscles and is very attentive to my needs. Additionally, she has created a comfortable and inviting environment at her new location. I would recommend Miriam to anyone with chronic back problems or to anyone interested in a relaxing afternoon or evening away from work or stress.
