"Gayle has the skills and capacity to consider me as a person, rather than solely as body parts and muscle. She notices what is happening and how my body is responding to her touch. I see her every chance I get."
"Gayle intuitively knows where you need the most work. She’s a master at what she does. I highly recommend her!"
"I have had countless massages in my day; but Gayle’s massage techniques deliver pure relaxation and leave me feeling like a new woman. If you’re tired of going from one massage therapist to the next, always leaving unsatisfied—look no further."
"Gayle has a relaxing personality and professional approach that make her massage sessions extremely satisfying."
"Gayle has a healing approach that she customizes to the needs of each individual. I feel benefits for weeks after a massage."
"Gayle provides a level of services far beyond what is typical."
"I have been a client of GayleForce for over 10 years and can't say enough good things. It is so nice to take a break in the middle of a busy work day and do something for myself and my health. Gayle is an amazing masseuse and always knows exactly what I need. She is knowledgeable, professional and as friendly as can be. Congratulations on 20 years!"
"Gayle's work keeps me emotionally and physically calibrated during high-stress times. For years, she's been my go-to masseuse. Highly recommend Gayle!"
"I cannot say enough good things about Gayle Stephens and Gayleforce Massage. I have seen Gayle for injuries and just for relaxation, and in all situations, she's just what I needed! Gayle is super-knowledgeable, kind and so good at it."
"From her welcoming and calming demeanor to her healing hands and focus on her clients' needs, Gayle is a gifted therapist. I always feel better, physically and mentally, after my 'Gayle time.'"
"Gayle is a veritable force of calm. She's a healer at a time when the world, and our bodies, could use more of it. I cannot recommend her enough."
"Our firm could not have been more pleased with the onsite chair massages that Gayle gave to our staff members. We all felt energized and fabulous after the massage. We will definitely use her services again."
"It's always a pleasure working with Gayle! I've had her work with my clients and co-workers and she is always professional, prompt and super knowledgeable about health and wellness. She brings a calming and caring approach to her work and I would recommend to her anyone."
"Gayle is a ray of light. Warm and welcoming as well as healing and calming. Her open and honest spirit is what fuels her,her work and her team at GayleForce. She has helped me numerous times and my back would write it's own reco if it wasn't so busy enjoying life."
"Gayle Stephens had provided services for our corporate wellness day for the past two years. The staff really look forward to this. It is a time to give back and GayleForce ensures everyone feels pampered and relaxed. The team is very professional and provides a safe environment for all. I would highly recommend GayleForce for any corporate or private event."
"Transformative. Integral. Delightful. Bodywork with Gayle, in addition to being the most effective and enjoyable massage of my long life and satisfying my love of being rubbed, is an important part of my life. She is my first stop when I need an oasis, a reboot, to work something out (physically or otherwise!) I have been so grateful to be able to share experiences with Gayle with my employees through both onsite chair massages and gift certificates for 1:1 sessions. It’s an experience— not an appointment, not a session, not a “massage”. Even in the chair for 15 minutes at work, time with Gayle is so much more. Gayle’s unique ability to care for another so completely while still being fully aware of her own self-care is a beautiful gift to the world. Selfishly, someday I may be sorry I’ve recommended to her so many people, but I can rest assured that whomever she trains as part of her team will have learned from the absolute best."
"Gayle is an amazing, intuitive massage therapist who is intent on making her clients feel welcome.
I first met Gayle when she was providing corporate massage services for a large agency for which I worked, and I continued to hire her for my own projects when I needed a massage therapist on set. This was especially appreciated by our production crew on those long shoot days...
Gayle's way of putting everyone at ease, as well as her breadth of experience in therapeutic massage, make recommending her to friends & colleagues an easy choice."
"I have been fortunate to be a classmate, colleague, and client of Gayles, spanning over 20 years. Gayle and her team bring their best to every interaction. They are attuned to what you need and are able to assist in posture correction, relief from pain, deep relaxation. Most importantly The Gayle force teams daily commitment to their craft and relationships inspires respect and a desire find your own best self. It is not often that you find an organization that embodies true wellness in a professional and corporate environment. Gayle Force is the complete package for wellness needs!"
"I slept great and woke up with less neck pain than I have in years, my hips feel like they are aligned completely different/more centered and with better range of motion and I feel like my shoulders are resting further back. I’ll be back and I already told the moms at dropoff about it.About halfway through the session, I was wondering if it would do much, but after that things started to come together and when I stood up - WOAH."
