Testimonials

Here are a few testimonials from clients I have worked with:

“Partnership, follow-up, compassion and a sense of humor.  This is how I would describe coaching with Angela.  After a session with Angela, I feel very supported and can look back at our conversations with the knowledge I am supported in any decision that I make.  I appreciate her sense of humor and her reminders to stop, breath and be with what I’m feeling.  She is a great coach and I would recommend her services.” – Meta Lackland

“I have known Angela Schwab since 1997 and consider her one of my best friends. In December I was in real crisis and found Angela to be an amazing Life Coach. She was an excellent listener and really honed in on what the issues were and wasn’t distracted by my feelings of loss and sadness. She helped me with very focused feedback and practical ways to move forward, when the time was right. I said things like “never” and she said “at this time”, which didn’t make sense to me at the moment but now I see that she was 100% right. I have followed her wise advice to recognize my feelings and let them surface as needed. Her honesty and compassion helped me through a really rough time and I recommend her to anyone and everyone, you won’t be disappointed!” – Norma Carlson

“Is anybody out there looking for a massage? How about a fabulous massage? Well, if you answered “yes” to both questions, look no more. Book an appointment with Angela Schwab and you will receive one of the best massages of your life. How do I know? I am a mature male and have had about 100 massages in my life and I have had almost that many therapists. Angela is bright and congenial yet very focused on her work. She always discusses my needs or desires and is very competent at addressing them. She focuses on them yet provides an all encompassing therapeutic massage. Pressure is adjusted for different areas and communication to achieve this is done at appropriate intervals. Her massages are filled with techniques that provide the client with a relaxing and also beneficial treatment. I always come away from a massage with Angela feeling better and also looking forward to the next one. Indulge yourself with a Swedish massage from Angela and you too will be glad you did.” – Dr. Robert Nacamu, Pleasanton, CA May 2011

Hi Angela,
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your kind, sincere, and thoughtful approach to my health and wellness. The first time I had your massage, I was in desperate need, due to my having taken my body to extremes with exercise as well as day-to-day work demands and stress. It was just what I needed. I left feeling SO MUCH better.   When you encourage my feedback, (…that feels especially good, a little more presure here, extra time there…), I become a partner in my own treatment, and I know it promotes the best possible result.  On another visit, I didn’t really need a massage, but rather felt like I deserved a “treat.”  This time, it was more like “preventative maintenance,” keeping me loose, and thereby less likely to be injured.  Encouraging me to just relax and enjoy, without any need for talk, allowed me to do just that.  It was “just what the doctor ordered,” not because of an immediate therapeutic need, but rather as a prescription for wellness. No matter the particular need for the massage on any given visit, I always leave feeling more restful, as if floating, yet at the same time more energetic and healed.’ I can’t wait for my next treatment!” – Jennifer D.

Hi Angela,

i just wanted to thank you for squeezing me into your busy schedule today. It was wonderful that you were able to give me a “mini session” to take care of my neck/shoulder injury due to yoga.  While I know it would have healed on its own EVENTUALLY, you really helped expedite the process.  Now I don’t have to cancel my tennis match! Thanks, also, for the suggestions for me to do at home to promote the muscle healing. You’re the best. – Kristin Walker


Here is a touching letter from my 16 year old daughter Sonja I’d like to share:

Of all people in this world, I would have never guessed this person to be my best friend. I never imagined I would become this close with them. She has brown hair that is starting to turn grey, a nice big smile on her face all the time, and when you’re around her you can just sense her happiness. She is always supportive of me no matter what, has a positive attitude, and is stronger than anyone I know. My best friend is my mother. No one comes close to how much she means to me and how much I love her. When I’m older and have kids I want to be just like her.

It’s so nice knowing you have someone that is there for you no matter what happens that they will stick by your side through thick and thin. My mother is so supportive all the time and that’s what I love of her most. If I have anything to say at anytime she always takes time and listens to me. She always hears me out and lets me talk. I tell her everything and she is so understanding. Whenever I feel down I go and talk to her and she always knows exactly what to say to make me feel better, I still don’t know how she does it. I know she is always on my side standing right next to me through everything and to guide me when I need it. She has the perfect balance to not being way too strict, but also not just letting me do whatever I want. One thing I love that she does is that she lets me make my own decisions. She doesn’t try to control my whole life and always tell me what to do. She trusts me and knows I’m old enough to make my own choices and if I make a bad one I will learn from it.

What would you do if you were constantly around someone who always brings the mood down? I don’t know if I would be able to handle it. Luckily for me my mom is always in a good mood and has a positive attitude all the time, I don’t know how she does it. I never seem to see her mad or even in a bad mood. She just always has a beautiful smile on her face. She knows exactly how to lift my spirits and pick me up when I need it. She believes in me and I believe in her. When she has a dream, she goes all the way till she gets it and doesn’t let anything get in the way or stop her. She knows that when you really put your mind to it, anything is possible. Her positive attitude about life opens my horizon and allows me to dream the unimaginable. She lives her life to the fullest, and helps me do the same.

My mom is one of the strongest people I have met so far. I don’t mean lifting weights or anything life that, but mentally. I have watched her go through so many things in the past sixteen years of my life and I am amazed by how she keeps herself together through all of it. She never lets anything bring her down and always stands up for what she believes in. She doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of her and just does her own thing. She knows what she wants and strives for it. My mom always keep her head held high and takes one step at a time.

She is the one person I look up to in my life. She has had the biggest impact on me and influenced me in so many way. I admire her for absolutely everything she does. She may not know it, but she is the most important person in my life and has shaped my life in to who I am today. Without her I don’t know what the purpose of life is. She is my hero, role model, and best friend all at the same time, now that’s hard to beat!

“I have chronic low back issues that I have been struggling with for years. I was referred to Angela for massage therapy and it has made such a difference for me!  I work a stressful job and often times I come to her a stressed out ball of knots, but after an hour of her magic, I leave there feeling like a melted puddle of butter.   She is a great massage therapist, very caring and professional, uses wonderful smelling essential oils and gives me all kinds of great health tips too.  By making regular appointments to see her, it has greatly reduced my back issues and tight muscles, much happier and healthier! I would highly recommend her services”

    Wow! Angela – you raised a very loving, aware daughter. You and Karl should be very proud. It’s really wonderful to hear a child talk about their parent like this! Love you! Jill
