I booked a seaweed wrap with Nikki. This was a new service being offered and it was wonderful! Nikki was very mindful of my comfort level, making sure to ask periodically how I was feeling and making adjustments as necessary. COVID precautions were taken very seriously and I felt very comfortable. It was a well-needed pampering experience and I booked my next appointment right then and there! Highly recommend Mindful Touch! Thanks, Nikki!
