"Tricia has been my massage therapist for over
two years. I am a triathlete and the training takes its toll on my body
and my previous injuries. Tricia has a passion for her profession and is
an athlete herself. This is what makes Tricia stand out above others.
She listens to me and my body’s needs and is able to apply the
appropriate pressure to resolve the issue. I have so much confidence in
her massages that I have implemented them into my pre and post race day
performances. I highly recommend Tricia!"

massage therapy and it in conjunction with acupuncture have been key
elements in my recovery. Massage therapy is a wonderful way of dealing
with internal stress and helps to alleviate symptoms caused by stress. I
highly recommend massage therapy as another form of preventative
medicine along with acupuncture, exercise and a healthy diet."
been going to Tricia for treatment for years now and couldn’t function
without it! I have numerous muscle problems and was pregnant with my
first child so no pain meds were permitted. She ‘’got me through” the
pregnancy with minimal discomfort! Before the baby, I went to see her on
a weekly basis to maintain the movement of my shoulder and reduce
adhesions internally- in fact my doctors will ask if I’m still getting
massage treatments – they recommend them! It has helped me to be able to
function normally with nothing but Advil for pain as well; what a gift.
I can carry my baby around without fear as I know if I have a problem,
Tricia will be able to help me work it out My time each week with Tricia
is both physically AND mentally a great break and I always leave more
relaxed and ready to take on the world!"

surgery, Tricia has been instrumental in helping me improve my range of

has the gift of being able to work on tight areas and provide a relaxing
massage as well. I have highly recommended Tricia to my friends."

body-worker and energetic healer myself for over 30 years, I am
extremely discriminating when it comes to choosing a massage therapist.
Tricia Hobbs is a very professional, knowledgeable, intuitive and
exceptionally skilled massage therapist. In the 3 years that she has

receiving massage therapy from Tricia at the outset of her practice. It
has been a journey in the study of my particular biomechanics. I had
issues resulting from previous injuries, as well as daily stress. From
the beginning, Tricia has been able to identify issues of which I was
previously unaware. It is always an engaging and interactive experience.
I consider massage therapy with Tricia to be part of my comprehensive
health management program. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

"I came to Charlotte Acupuncture and Wellness Center as a last
resort for the treatment of piriformis syndrome. After several years of
pain, Tricia Hobbs was able to provide me with relief. She takes the
time to listen to your recovery ups and downs at each session adjusting
the treatment as necessary. This is not a quick "feel good" massage.
This is a trained professional that addresses your problem with a
deliberate plan of action for relief of your pain."

"I have been having regular massage for about 10 years.
I started when I was feeling a lump in my neck and it was determined
that it was a tight spot in a tendon. I have found that massage has
become a part of my regular health maintenance. If I am having regular
massage I can stay on top of any sore areas and therefore I can stay
more active. It has also helped me feel better through the ups and downs
of menopause. My plan is to continue regular massage so that I can feel
younger and be more active."
"Tricia rocks. Whenever I find myself
rundown from the rigors of the daily grind, I get to spend 90 minutes
with Tricia. I walk into her office with the weight of the world on my
shoulders – and she can tell (my mood and my body look it). She works
out the toughest of knots with focus and determination – the stress
feels like it’s melting away. I leave feeling like a new woman, ready to
tackle what’s next in a centered manner."
