One of my main reasons for trying Thai massage with Sekoiaa was to receive some therapy for my painful right hip. The pain was very intense during the night and affecting my sleep. After my first massage, I noticed such a significant improvement in my hip that I didn’t hesitate to book with Sekoiaa again for a follow up massage for maintenance. The pain has almost completely disappeared, and that’s just from 2 appointments! I’m quite certain the pain is caused from my love of wearing high heels. Now I know I can keep wearing them and just book an appointment with Sekoiaa to keep things in check! 😉

I am now lucky enough to have received several Thai Massages with Sekoiaa and, I just love them! Originally going to try something new, I quickly realized that a Thai Massage is an amazing combination of massage and yoga work – only you are having the workout done for you! I have very stiff joints with loss of mobility in my hips and knees and, the Thai Massage has been tremendously helpful in loosening my joints. Sekoiaa’s gentle, caring manner makes the whole experience wonderfully relaxing and healing. I also appreciate her professionalism and how she will go out of her way to help research and point the way for any related health issue you may have. Thank you, Sekoiaa!

Today, I experienced my first Thai massage with Sekoiaa Lake at The Little Turtle Company, and because I enjoyed it so thoroughly, I wanted to share the reasons why I did so. We spent a few moments prior as Sekoiaa introduced this particular kind of massage to me, explained what I might expect during our time together and to discuss any health issues or areas that might need specific attention. I told her that I had been diagnosed with spinal stenosis and had what I thought might be arthritis in my left shoulder. Together we reviewed some aspects of the massage that would affect these areas so that we both felt comfortable before we began. A gentle touch, but with an appropriate assertiveness, Sekoiaa began. I started to relax, delighting in the difference between this quiet, rhythmic kneading and stretching and the other kinds of massage therapy I previously had. Thai massage was definitely more relaxing and enjoyable, but effective as well. Twice I felt a couple of stubborn muscle knots give way at the hands of Sekoiaa. And once, when I winced just ever so slightly – more in anticipation of the beginning of work on my shoulder, not because of the actual massage – she immediately stopped to check in with me. I smiled to myself because she had not actually started to work the shoulder – I was only anticipating pain. Which, by the way, did not happen. By the end of the massage, mobility in my shoulder had increased dramatically. The massage became both a physical and an emotional release. I felt pampered and very well cared for and at the very end, when invited to rest quietly for a moment or two, I felt “tucked in” and could have napped! As we chatted afterward, a bath in Epsom salts was recommended, and in order to hang onto that body bliss I did have a warm bath that night, and slept throughout the night – the best night’s rest I had had in a very long time. A Thai massage at The Little Turtle Company with Sekoiaa Lake is very highly recommended – your body will thank you and your spirit will squeal with delight!

My experience with the Thai massage treatments from Sekoiaa are unique, restorative and therapeutic. Sekoiaa has an extremely gentle and peaceful energy within her and, it comes through in her body work practices. Her genuine caring of others makes the experience richer. Thai massage for me, feels like a rhythmic stretching from head to toe. I feel as though I have been given both a gift of deep relaxation and proactive therapy by awakening each area of my body. I cherish these treatments.

This is a note of gratitude for yesterday’s wonderful massage. I was very touched by all the love and care you bring to your treatment. Accompanying the very relaxing massage, you impart so much of yourself, your kindness, gentleness and warmth—that gift from the heart, which is truly healing. I wanted to let you know that I treasure this very special gift.

The whole experience with Sekoiaa was wonderful. She created a relaxing and safe environment to experience my first aromatherapy facial. She is a very professional and caring person. I came to have my facial with a tension headache, and when I left it was gone! Amazing! Thank you, Sekoiaa.

I enjoyed my first aromatherapy facial treatment with Sekoiaa recently and found the entire experience to be so relaxing and therapeutic. From the moment you enter her peaceful treatment space, you can feel yourself begin to unwind. Having spoken with Sekoiaa prior to my facial, I knew she had selected essential oils based on my skin type and preferences. The oils, combined with her high quality products and skilled touch, left my skin looking and feeling refreshed, even days after the treatment. I’ll be making her facials a regular part of my skin care regimen.

I feel so very special being the recipient of The Little Turtle Gift Basket! Coming in for my Aromatherapy Facial a couple of weeks ago and entering your contest for the gift basket, I thought nothing about winning, just spent my luxurious time with you enjoying the bliss of my facial. I floated home and pretty much floated for the rest of the day and off to sleep later that evening. So, what a lovely surprise to receive your call to let me know that I had won the basket and that you would be delivering it that afternoon! And, what a treasure it is! I am looking forward to my next appointment with you to utilize your gift certificate for another aromatherapeutic treatment! Your gentle manner while providing treatments is so very much appreciated; and I can assure you that I am also highly recommending your work to my friends. The Little Turtle Company has so much to offer; and I am also very pleased that you have recently opened a new convenient, super central location in Peterborough! Thank you, Sekoiaa!

I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to experience Sekoiaa’s wonderful aromatherapy massages and facials. She brings such peace and caring to her practice that one cannot help be transported into a heavenly world of relaxation and wellbeing. My favourite gift for good friends is to share her expertise with them and give a gift certificate so that they too can have a gentle, relaxing treatment. Sekoiaa has a gift that she shares with others and I am so fortunate to be on the receiving end of this gift.

I have come to truly value the calm, relaxing, and important experience that my aromatherapy treatments have provided. Sekoiaa is an extremely kind, calm and gentle therapist. I feel many should make these treatments a priority.

I am an accountant and often spend long hours working at a computer. Eventually, this will cause stiffness in my upper back that spreads and causes muscle spasms in my lower back that just cannot be solved with stretching exercises. I have received aromatherapy massages from Sekoiaa on a number of occasions. On every occasion, my back problems are completely gone! They also help with my dry skin. These massages are so relaxing that I come close to falling asleep (probably have fallen asleep a few times). I always remain on the massage table for quite some time after the massage is finished. It just feels too good to move!

The workshop really helped me – thanks so much – you are a very special facilitator. I appreciated your gentle leadership and powerful wisdom.

Sekoiaa will gently take you through a magical journey that feels emotionally safe. When I did the workshop, I was able to free up my creativity and resolve with ease, some issues I had. Her work and her spirit are sacred. She can provide a way to help you let the sacred into your life. Thank you Sekoiaa, for creating the space that allowed these deeper parts of myself to emerge.

This was my first experience with a labyrinth and I did not know what to expect. Sekoiaa created a beautiful, gentle, and safe environment that allowed me to explore this most powerful metaphor of my life on my own terms. Sekoiaa held the space with grace throughout the whole process, and the images and stories that resulted will stay with me for a very long time to come.

I see my journal as a loyal friend and companion, and although I don’t write every day, its many incarnations have been close to me for most of my life. When I found out about Sekoiaa Lake’s Journaling Retreat, I was eager to attend, and I am very grateful that I did. Throughout the day, Sekoiaa’s gentle and caring approach made us all feel at ease. Utilizing images, poetry and music to engage and inspire our journaling practice, Sekoiaa took us on a journey exploring a myriad of ways that led us inwardly, forging a deeper connection with our inner voice. I had a wonderful day filled with creativity and discovery. I would highly recommend it.
