Parker was so helpful in talking through the pregnancy massage process and giving me recommendations on how to care for myself and my little one. She worked some magic on my back and I walked away feeling so relaxed and refreshed!

I saw Parker for a massage the day after I had a miscarriage and just saw her yesterday for Arvigo. Both times were wonderful and exactly what I needed during a traumatic time. I would highly recommend her and Vitality to anyone needing some extra special care in their massage!

I look forward to my Arvigo sessions with Parker. She is a thoughtful, kind, and skilled massage therapist. My mental and physical health has improved due to her compassionate care.

She was patient & kind through several bouts of false labor, and when I actually went into labor she made it to the hospital in time for my extremely quick bro! He support was possibly the only thing that kept me relaxed through a birth so hectic that the doctor didn't make it in time. Parker was wonderful in the hospital, but what was truly invaluable was her kindness and thoughtful help in the first week postpartum. She came to my home to check on us and even watched my toddler for a few hours so that we could get a little rest. We are extraordinarily thankful that we had the good fortune to have her be a part of our birth experience.

Parker is magically attentive & kind & uses her knowledge to empower & heal. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for traditional or Arvigo massage.

Massage Client

I struggled with anxiety and depression during my pregnancy and Parker was a wonderful support. I also received massages and acupressure during pregnancy and postpartum from Parker. I can not rave enough about these services. She made each session special by focusing on what I needed at the time including accupressure to help with anxiety.

Jenna Wilson

I had a fantastic experience from start to finish. The whole space was gorgeous and relaxing. Parker was super knowledgeable and really helped my body feel significantly better. She used a variety of techniques and exposed me to cupping.

Rachel R.

When I first met Parker, I immediately felt at ease, like she’d been an old friend.  Not only is she a doula, but also a gifted massage therapist and gives wonderfully relaxing prenatal massages to boot.  She has a very calming presence which was a nice match for someone who is more anxiety prone like myself.

Jen Broyhill

At the hospital Parker was my rock (along with my husband!)- all of my fears disappeared whenever I looked at her. Parker captured some amazing pictures of the birth and put such love and intention into creating a peaceful environment.

Heather Harold

Being referred to Parker while in the midst of my infertility treatments was one of the few positive things to come out of a very difficult experience for me. Parker is kind, gentle, understanding, and focused on your wellness as a whole human being. Oftentimes she would send me an email between sessions to check in and ask how I was doing, or be quick to reply to any questions I had. Arvigo was very beneficial in resetting my body and hormones after many medicines and procedures, but spending time with Parker was good for my spirit as well. If you are looking for someone who has a passion for her work, her clients, and is very good at what she does—look no further. Parker has my wholehearted recommendation for any of the amazing services she offers.

Testimonials

Parker is a beautiful light who works from the heart. I have been fortunate to receive both deep tissue massage and Arvigo abdominal massage from Parker, and I highly recommend her as a partner in your self-care and healing routine. She puts a significant amount of time and effort in getting to know you in order to support your unique needs. My experience with Arvigo was particularly impactful. After one session, I have experienced almost complete relief from monthly menstrual cramps, which previously were so painful I regularly struggled to get out of bed. I'm so grateful to Parker for sharing her gift, and I highly recommend her services!
