"Deanna has been my massage therapist for over 5 years. My physical issues have included neck strain, headaches, upper and lower back pain, and pain in my hip. Deanna tailors each massage to my current needs. She records my progress and always consults with me each time regarding the goal of each massage. Her knowledge of the muscular/skeletal system is excellent! If I complain about pain in a particular part of my body, she knows where that pain is coming from. She can work on those points and can get the muscles to relax and thus, decrease the pain. I have come to a massage with a headache and left headache-free. She brings peace to my back. Deanna cares about each client. I highly recommend Hawkins Healing!!"

"I will never forget the first time I went and got a massage from Deanna. I was in a tremendous amount of pain in my back and neck. Within the first ten minutes she massaged me I could feel my pain melting away. It was one of the biggest releases I have ever had in my life. As I got to know her I could not believe how much she knew about the human body and it's muscle groups and how they all relate to one another. She gave me an awareness of my body that I had never had before. In future appointments I would ask her questions and talk with her in great detail about what muscle groups I had issues with. She is very aware of my needs from the moment I walk in the door. She can tell if it's a day I am looking for answers for an ache I have or if I simply want a quite day to release the stress of the day. She is such a sweet and gentle soul. I am honored not only to have her as my massage therapist, but that we have now become friends."
"I was a little apprehensive the first time I went to Hawkins Healing for a massage. My neck and shoulders had always been in so much pain, I didn't know if I would be able to withstand the mere uncomfortableness or not. I had heard so many horror stories of people not being able to move their head the next day, I didn't know what to expect. I couldn't have been more wrong...3 years later my appointments were scheduled every 2 weeks! Not only did she help the mobility in my neck and shoulders but overall I feel less tension and the pain is down to a manageable level where simple tasks didn't make me cringe any longer. I have since moved away and I know finding a massage therapist who even compares will be difficult; I don't even know where to begin! Thank you, Deanna, for truly caring about what you do. You truly have a gift!"
"I started going to Hawkins Healing when I was having issues with my left arm 2 years ago and I have not looked back. It took a few months for my arm to heal and I honestly feel that Deana was a big part of that healing. She knows what she is doing and how to make your visit relaxing but also gets in there and heals those sore muscles and aches and pains. She takes time with each visit to find out what you are looking for in a massage and explains what she finds after your massage and gives you helpful advice to maintain a healthy body. She is the best thing that has happened to me for my well-being and I look forward to each visit. If you are looking for a relaxing massage or have some issues that need to be worked on, this is the place you want to be."
"Every time I get a deep tissue massage from Deanna I feel rejuvenated. I have TMJ and she helps my jaw to relax and relieves some of the pain for me. I highly recommend Deanna for any of your massage needs. Thanks Deanna you are wonderful!!"
“Between working out and my job as an Administrative Assistant, my arms and neck were in bad shape. I started getting a massage about 2 ½ years ago, and it is the best thing I ever did. The investment in myself and my health has been paid back in being able to live a normal life again. I am scared to think where I would be if I hadn’t started massage! Deanna is very knowledgeable and provided the best massage therapy to help me get past my arm and neck issues. I will always be grateful for her caring attitude and healing touch!”
"Deanna has been my massage therapist since she started her practice in 2006. Over the years I have had some very talented therapist’s, but Dee always goes a step further to understand what is causing the source of pain and fully understands her client’s issues. If more masseuses took the care that she takes, maybe Western medicine and insurance would truly see the benefits of massage and its healing power."
"Plus, I think she is awesome and has relieved so much pain for me over the years. I’d be at a complete loss without her; after all, she knows how to find that “hurts-so-good” spot by my shoulder to make the pain go away."
"Hawkins Healing is amazing! Prior to coming here, I had never had a massage that provided such lasting relief."
"Deanna - Part massage therapist...part magician!"
"Amazing is an understatement! What Deanna provides should be part of the definition of heaven!"
"Deanna, I'm so happy I stumbled upon you. I had no idea the impact of a therapeutic massage could have in relieving aches and pains and reducing stress. I love that you are a nerd about the human body. Some days it seems you are as much a doctor as a doctor! I've left my chiropractor and look forward to 'maintenance'."
"P.S. I tell everyone about you!"
"I think that Deanna is the best of the best! I've never had any other masseuse know as much about the body as well as Deanna! She's wonderful! Happy to refer her to anyone."
"Deanna - Can't say enough about your wonderful care. You have a special touch and have helped me immensely over the last few years! Headaches - body aches - tightness - Wah La!"
Thanks, Rachel Gillman
"Deanna is amazing! I have had so much relief from the work we have done. I breathe easier, walk straighter/taller and I feel my emotions stronger (in a good way)." : )
"Deanna, thank you for your wonderful care. I no longer suffer from low back pain. You are God sent!!
