The décor, scent, and vibe are all designed and executed to make True Roots an escape from the day’s fast pace. Darby’s skill is top notch and I would recommend her to everyone. She’s very in-tune and adjusts based on my needs each session. For me, massage started as a one-time treat to myself. But thinking back to that very first time, I knew I would be back.
Darby has since become an essential part of my overall wellness program. Massage is every bit as important to my fitness routine as cardio, weights and yoga. I have become more aware of my muscles and body in general because of Darby’s knowledge and work. She is incredibly talented & passionate about her work and it shows. No two sessions are identical so they seem BRAND NEW every time! I have explored various add-ons such as skin brushing, hot stones, and the dry sauna. Just when you think a massage doesn’t get any better, it does! Each appointment seems more amazing than the last. Darby outdoes herself time and time again. I can’t say enough positive things about this studio.
I am amazed at all the different modalities Darby brings to the massage table. I am a huge fan of myofascial release which I have had amazing results from. True Roots Massage has so much to offer when it comes to physical and emotional well-being. I am a forever client!
I am grateful to be able to go to True Roots massage to see Darby on a regular basis. Each time, she addresses my current needs, not only physical but emotional and spiritual, as well. Her myofascial techniques have contributed to my physical healing while her soothing massage and spiritual intuition have often calmed my emotions and restored my soul. I feel so blessed to have her here in Atchison!
