Abby Yarus Born and raised in Montana I have always had interest on helping others find peace and joy in their lives - so I gravitated toward massage. I believe my friendly, youthful disposition and genuine interest in bettering clients lives enables me to give truly effective massages to help people live their lives with less pain and stress.

And of course I am always beyond happy to help a client unwind from a busy day with a soothing hot stone accompanied massage. So whether you are in search of a deeper massage to alleviate your stubborn sore back from work, looking to release bound up muscles from a day on the mountain or are just seeking a warm relaxing massage to melt away stress- please feel free to book with me- I would love to meet you!
