I am in the restaurant business and spend a lot of time on my feet. Because of the long hours and my advancing middle age starting to take its toll, massage was recommended to me for both stress reduction and my various aches and pains. I found Mary Tamez initially at another massage place en route to my business.
After a few great visits I can't tell you how thrilled I was that Mary was joining forces with Liz Yerkes at a new venture right above our Lazy Lobster restaurant on Longboat Key. The place is great! The atmosphere is adjustable from open airy with a "massage in the trees" effect or quite and secluded with the drapes drawn.
Mary's calm and friendly personality makes you feel at ease the moment you arrive, and the massage session is so relaxing and healing I always leave the cozy setting feeling 100% better and looking forward to my next session! Mary is the best therapist I've ever experienced-- she gets to know you and caters her style and technique to your preferences. She is caring, compassionate and clearly experienced in massage. I give her the highest recommendation. Liz enjoys an equally outstanding reputation as well.

I recently had a Body Scrub with Ellen Cross. While the Scrub itself was fantastic, Ellen's professionalism, experience and intuitive response added immensely to the benefits - including relief from chronic pain. I felt totally relaxed, rejuvenated and very grateful to have been on her table! Highly recommended!

I have lived with Tinnitus for more than 30 years. The noise in my ears never went away - at night the sounds became louder. After several visits to doctors over the years, I pretty well had given up.
Ms. Liz Yerkes suggested I visit her for possible treatment. She used her fingers in my mouth to push on certain areas and massaged other areas on my neck and back. After a few treatments, I now have my life back!

Your great massage technique cured my very stiff neck that hurt for so long. It did what the physical therapy could not do.
Now that my neck is better I continue to have your massages because with your expertise, there's always some spot needing attention.
My family insists on appointments with you when they visit. Thanks for your dedication.

We've been clients of Liz for over ten years now. Previously we'd used a series of massage therapists over the last 40 years. None have come close to the satisfaction provided by Liz. We think of her weekly visit as a "system reset" that is a vital part of our busy lives.
Liz's pursuit of both anatomical knowledge and therapeutic advancements place her WAY beyond the "masseuse" category.

Liz is professional, skillful and personable and her massages never fail to leave me relaxed and free from pain.

Liz is magic, a healer/magician with many ways of healing. I've never worked with a masseuse who has such devotion to her craft and such commitment to excellence in everything she does. We now have a standing weekly appointment with her.

Many thanks to Liz's incredible hands and energy work! She always leaves me feeling refreshed and renewed.

Nothing compares with the professional massage I received from Liz Yerkes. Her kind manner and her professional skills make for an experience that is not only therapeutic, but incredibly enjoyable and relaxing. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to be in “good hands”.
- Susan, Longboat Key
Liz is one of those rare massage therapists who can "listen" to your body and know just what is needed for healing. She works miracles daily! My weekly 90 minutes with Liz is heaven!
