About five years ago I started experiencing difficulty running and just basic mobility. The pain in my lower legs was excruciating. Waking up in the morning and just trying to get ready for work was extremely painful to just plain walk. I had made an appointment with Dr Robert Anderson to see if in fact I had injured my Achilles or something. Dr. Anderson did notice the tendon was extremely enflamed and possibly a shot of some anti-inflammatory med could be an option though in his opinion he was not an advocate of this as a solution due to the risk of infection. His last suggestion was to see a therapist or someone that could work this out through some form of rehab. That's what led me to Adele. I explained to Adele where the pain was and the difficulty I had in running and playing my favorite sport - Softball. The first two visits were grueling; she immediately found numerous knots in both calves and proceeded to work them out while I was secretly trying to hold the screams back. After that first week I could get out of bed effortlessly without any grimacing pain. After the second week (2 visits again) I was back playing softball and exercising as if nothing had ever happened. If not for Dr Anderson making that suggestion I would never have understood the value of a great massage therapist as Adele. All I can say is try her once and you will always be a fan of her, not only professionally but also as a friend.

To those of you who are reading Adele's testimonials I'd like to share with you that I have been getting massages on a regular basis now since March 2005. In the beginning I only would get a massage here and there and I wasn't consistent because I felt bad about spending money on myself. Quickly, I realized that I couldn't afford not to spend the money. Adele has healed my body of many aches and pains that a chiropractor or pill couldn't do. I'm worth getting a regular massage twice a month. It's health and healing to my body. I look forward to my appointments. If you have never experienced a massage you've never experienced total relaxation. Trust me I know. I'm a home school mother of 4 and a dance instructor. Massages are necessary.

My name is Monica Blevins and I have been a client of Adele's since 2010. I was referred to Adele by a co-worker in the Emergency Room that had been going to Adele for massage therapy for years and just said "she is the best". I agree. I always look forward to my massages with Adele. I have worked for the past ten years as a Physician Assistant in a variety of settings in the medical field. Initially I worked in surgery that required me to stand for over twelve hours a day. I had pain in my hips and upper back and neck. Massage therapy has helped me greatly. It has also been a great way to help reduce stress and help with relaxation as well. Adele always has a smile on her face and is a pleasure to be around, we have become friends! Over the years I have worked swing shifts and Adele always worked with my schedule so I could still have my treatments. I always highly recommend her to my friends, family and co-workers that are looking for a massage therapist!
I started seeing Adele for massage in 2004 (11 years now)....a stiff mess. I was seeing a Chiropractor for regular adjustments, but needed additional help with old, sore muscles. Lack of stretching and years of sports had me walking hunched over, dreading the first steps of the day. After our first couple of visits, I realized Adele was not like other massage therapists. Her knowledge of anatomy, intuitive sense of touch and relaxed approach kept me coming back. I committed to a monthly regime with Adele for years. I've never felt like a paycheck to Adele and that is a special thing in today's world. I look forward to our sessions and appreciate her friendship.

"I am totally hooked! Part of me wants to keep Adele the best kept secret of South Charlotte but you simply have to experience the relaxation and rejuvenation yourself - unparalleled. Simply the best."
"I have been with Adele since 2005 and wouldn't pay another therapist for a massage; she is the best I have found. I have had more massages over the years by various people all over the country, from individuals working out of their homes, to world known spas and she gives truly the best massage I have ever had. When people want to give me a present by buying me a massage at a local "upscale" spa, I tell them to save their money. I recommend Adele to everyone I know. I am so glad that I found a great therapist who has great training, is very knowledgeable, and has a great personality. I just hope that she never switches her profession (or moves)!!!"
When I get regular massages, I feel my best. I know I'm taking care of myself, and Adele is the best massage therapist I have ever had. She is a true professional but also makes me feel like I'm her favorite client. I prefer going to her warm, peaceful home rather than an impersonal, noisy salon or spa. Unlike anyone else I’ve used she's been very cooperative about customizing my sessions so that I'm the most comfortable and gain the most benefit. I'd highly recommend Adele to anyone who wants personalized treatment and a truly wonderful massage experience.
"I have known Adele since 2004, having met her when she began her massage therapy career. My wife knew her first and introduced me to her as a caring, considerate and talented professional. My work involves long hours and can be emotionally as well as physically demanding. Adele's massages have become my monthly reward for this hard work and I leave refreshed in body, mind and spirit. You will not find anyone more concerned about your health and well-being. She is a role-model for Christian service. My recommendation is the highest I can provide for anyone."
