I've been to Fire Mountain Massage and it was a great experience. I typically don't go to get massages but figured I would try it out and it was great and calming experience. With all the day-to-day stress and being on the go it's hard to find time to relax but that's what made it well worth it. I will definitely be back and recommend Mary to any athletes or any of those dealing with stress. Thanks again!
