Diane has a special gift. She heals with touch! I was living with a trashed foot from an old injury. I am walking again pain free!

  From the moment you meet Diane, you will feel very much at ease.  Her quiet demeanor relaxes your mind as her knowledge flows through skillful hands.  Don't be surprised to find yourself drifting to that utterly comfortable place just shy of restful sleep.  You will leave refreshed and feeling like a million bucks!

  "Diane Adams has indeed distilled the 'essence of touch.' She makes a real effort to get to know her clients' issues and then works hard to resolve them. I know I am in much better shape now than I was when Diane gave me my first therapeutic massage. Now I don't think I can go without a massage from
Diane. I drive quite a distance from Newport to have Diane work on me but I would be willing to drive even farther. It's the best 90 minutes of my week."

I started coming to Essence of Touch therapeutic massage 4 years ago because I had exhausted all other medical remedies….surgery, medication, chiropractor, physical therapy, hot tub, exercise and epidural.
Since coming for massage I have had relief from chronic back and leg pain, reduction in muscle spasms, cramps and pain.
Diane Adams is amazing and knowledgeable in her field of expertise!

  When I started to use Diane for my massages, i thought she was awesome  .She has strong hands and she is full of compassion!  She has helped me with my tight muscles. I have fibromialgia and it brings me relief to get deep tissue, and she is very good at what she does. i would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!

  Diane is an essential part of my health care team, and an important part of my training for and recovery from triathlons.  I have been a regular client for at least five years, and recommend her to all of my fellow triathletes.  Because she is an accomplished athlete herself, she really knows what to focus on to enable me to perform to the best of my ability.

  Diane does masterful work in each and every session to relieve tension and help me regain flexibility.  Being an athlete herself, she does wonderfully with the soreness and minor injuries we get when we stay active into our 40s and 50s.  I can feel the difference for weeks after Diane has worked on me, and it helps my day-to-day energy level and activities.  She is fabulous!

   "I have been a runner for the last 32 years.   Having some discomfort in my lower back and left foot I made an appointment at Essence Touch for a therapeutic massage.  After my first visit and over the next several days my back and foot felt much better.  I will be back for massages every few weeks. Very pleased with the results, as Diane who is also a runner, knows what type of massage a runner needs."

   Diane is a great massage therapist. She has a great awareness of the body, is very receptive and attentive. She was the first person to identify my running injury, and was extremely supportive and encouraging on helping me heal.

  I have received several massages from several different massage therapists in my lifetime.
I must say that Diane is the Best as she knows how to pinpoint areas in need and takes time to help you relax and or heal.
