“I’ve had massage treatments since 1994 all over the states, Evie is top of the line. She is always professional and she not only has the training and knowledge to do a great job, but she also is gifted with great intuition and energy!”Tracy
As a fellow massage therapist I sometimes struggle to find other bodyworkers who deliver a similar level of care and attention that I give to my own clients. Evie is the real deal! Her sessions are thoughtful, mindful and grounded. I left her office feeling deeply cared for. She is a gem!Kylie
Evie’s space and healing touch are magical! If you haven’t tried hot stones before you are in for a real treat. In combination with essential oils, Evie’s gifts as a massage therapist, and the soothing environment, I always have a very healing experience. Thank you Evie!Sara
I love going to see Evie! She is intuitive, delightful, thoughtful, and I always feel like I can just walk in and say, “This is what I think I need, what do you think?” and she’ll come up with exactly the right thing. I have especially enjoyed the hot stone massages, but really, any work with Evie is fantastic. Highly recommend!! I always walk out of her lovely room feeling a million times lighter and more relaxed than I did when I walked in.”Rebecca
Perfection. The room is just the right temperature. The table had so much fluffiness I felt as though I was on a cloud. Every time I receive hot stone massage from Evie I’m transformed and transported to a better place where there is no pain, and everyone is happy. Little utopia once a month is good for everyone. I travel an hour to see her, and it’s worth it. Online booking and reminders are super convenient also. She is a gem!Jennifer
“Brush aside any thoughts that massage is only a feel-good way to indulge or pamper yourself. To the contrary, massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being, whether you have a specific health condition or are just looking for another stress reliever.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What should I wear?
A: During these times of COVID-19, you must wear a mask. You can take the mask off only when you’re face-down on the table. Other than that, wear whatever you will be comfortable in. Some people like to wear loose-fitting clothing that is easy to put back on when they’re in a deeply relaxed state. Some people choose to leave their garments on during a session, but it’s not necessary. Either way, you will be professionally draped to maintain your comfort. Be aware that whatever you’re wearing may get some oil on it, so don’t wear anything too precious.
Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
A: Cash, Venmo, PayPal, Check, Credit/Debit Card, Apple Pay, & some trades (contact me ahead of time)
Q: Where are you located exactly?
A: 45 East Main, St. Trumansburg, NY – We’re on the same block as Hazelnut Kitchen and Main Street Market, in a gray & white house. On the left corner of the house you’ll see our sign. Walk around the side of the building and you’ll see our red door. Come on in if you have an appointment. Otherwise, please schedule online or give a call.
Q: How often should I get a massage?
A: That depends on a variety of factors that I am happy to discuss with you. Some important factors are how valuable you find massage therapy to be as part of your overall health and wellness picture, how much time and money you’re able to invest. Most of my clients schedule regularly, whether that be once a year or once a week.
Q: Does insurance cover massage therapy?
A: Though I am not in network with insurance companies, you may get reimbursed for massage therapy. I can send you a reciept which you can submit to your insurance company. You’re more likely to get reimbursed if you have a “letter of medical necessity” from your primary care provider on file with your insurance company.
Q: Can I use my Health Savings Account for Massage Therapy?
A: Though you’ll want to check with your provider first, in most cases – yes, you can use your HSA account to pay for massage! The aforementioned “letter of medical necessity” is oftentimes required in this instance.
Q: What if I have to cancel or reschedule my session?
A: When possible, please kindly give 24+ hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule. If your reason is illness or recent contact with COVID-19, there will be no cancellation fee. Appointments cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours are subject to a $45 fee.
