She created a safe and trustworthy atmosphere, and amazed me at how she seemed to know what was happening in muscles and tendons more than I did. I’ve since recommended several people to her. One even said she outranked masseuses in San Francisco. You’re missing out if you haven’t been yet.”

Susan B.
“Relaxing environment. T.C. is professional and pays attention to the needs of the client. I will be back!”
“TC was wonderful!! My husband heard about her from a friend and bought me a gift card for Christmas. It took me til August to use it because I’ve had a couple less-than-satisfactory massages from other places. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable I was with TC. She was engaging but not overly talkative, which was perfect for me. Technically, the massage was great! I will absolutely go back and have already recommended her to others!”
Carli S
“I do not frequently have a massage, but since I was in need of one I was referred to TC. I cannot stress how impressed I was with her knowledge of the body and how well she explained what she was doing and its effects upon the different body parts as they related to your own injuries and healing process.”
Leslie Z
“I have been to numerous massage therapists over the past 15 years and no one can compare to TC.

TC is prompt, professional and an amazing therapist!”
Michelle L.

Thanks TC for your input and work you did on my leg to get it down, it is a constant moment to moment struggle to keep the leg from swelling, After all your good work Bill still did a couple of hours at home. – I am happy to have met you and look forward to another session on Friday, May 11th.”
Linda L
“I am not sore today and my left hip is a little better. It is very cool here today so dressed warm and I am going to take a very warm shower and dress warmly again. Trying not to abuse a good thing! Thanks for going to “bat” for me on Monday, TC. I really appreciate your input to my Dr. Hugs, Marian.”
Marian B.
“I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy a year ago. Bells is thought to be caused by the herpes (cold sores) virus attacking the 7th cranial nerve. Symptoms include partial paralysis to one side of the face, as well as extreme weakness and exhaustion. Symptoms manifest themselves quickly, within 3-5 days. Typical recovery can take several weeks to several months or longer. I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy on Day 3 of my symptoms. I went to TC on Day 10. The right side of my face was droopy, my right eyebrow was 1 inch lower than my left, my right eye did not blink, and I could not smile. She did a combination deep tissue massage, acupressure and gently worked my face and neck. I came home feeling energized for the first time in over a week. I saw and felt changes immediately. I was so excited I made two more appointments for the following week. I wish I had a picture of the look on TC’s face when she saw the remarkable change in my face! The rapid improvement was truly miraculous. I am so very thankful for incredible health care professionals such as TC, who use their art of touch for healing. TC is extremely knowledgeable in not only massage, but also nutrition and cleansing. She is quick to share a variety of tricks anyone can do on their own at home. A year later, I continue to prioritize regular massages with TC and highly recommend her to all. Thank you, TC, for your loving and professional care!”
“On Friday the 7th of March I was in quite a lot of pain with my sciatic nerve in my left hip and leg. It was fortunate for me that my husband gave me a gift certificate for Mother’s Day to use on Friday for an hour and a half massage with you. Your attention to my problem area and the way you listen to what my needs are is a blessing indeed. God has given you such a wonderful talent not only with your massage abilities but your whole persona and sweet disposition. My left leg “shimmered” all day Friday and sleeping was tolerable (whereas it wasn’t since Tuesday). Saturday my hip was uncomfortable only when I brought my left ankle up across my right knee to put on my socks and shoes. By Saturday night I felt no pain at all. I drank lots of water as you always remind me to do after my massage and the nice cold bottle of water that you give right after every massage is a refreshing way to get started. Your thoughtfulness and care are very much appreciated–I can hardly wait for my next massage!!”
Beverly Hahn
“This has been one of the most user-friendly services I’ve ever encountered. To be able to book appointments online, and to purchase massage packages online, really suits my needs. And it goes without saying that Art of Touch is the best therapeutic massage company I’ve ever dealt with. T. C. Youngblood is not only professional, but puts the client at ease also. She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of massage and health, and has helped me for many years now.”
Lynn Nicholson
“Dear TC –

I just wanted to thank you for doing such an excellent job on my massage last Friday. Later that day my whole left leg had that “shimmering water” feeling to it and I figured that my nerve was shaping up! I didn’t have pain sleeping that night but it wasn’t quite healed. I kept drinking my water! By Saturday I only felt a slight discomfort when I put on my socks and shoes in the morning (bending at the hip/waist). By Saturday night I was a new woman!!!!

God works through those hands of yours. I am so thankful that I am able to experience your experience!

I hope your massage therapist was able to help you get the results your were looking for!”

Beverly Hahn
“Dear TC –

I meant to write you sooner, but you know how it goes. Smile. Ken really liked his massage that you gave him. He wasn’t sore and he said you did just the right amount of pressure. Thank you so much. I was very pleased with my Valentine’s Day present to him. I suggested he do it more often and he said he is going to try to do just that.

Thanks again”

“I am a registered nurse and have long been a believer in the many benefits of massage, having seen first hand its positive effects on patients in the Intensive Care Unit … I’ve been lucky enough to have Theresa “TC” Youngblood as my massage therapist. I’ve had many massages over the years, but TC’s technique far surpasses any other.”
Mary T. Johnson

Paul T. Nagengast
“I suffer from Fibromyalgia, active in all eighteen trigger points. I have found therapeutic massage to be more help to me than any other treatment, especially with TC. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field as well as very trained. She goes beyond basic massage to incorporate compassion, kindness and, understanding … I would recommend her to anyone who thinks he or she might benefit from the wonders of therapeutic massage.”
