“I have been seeing Tara and Esther for massage for years. Once I tried their Whole Body Vibration machines, I lost 2” in my waist after 2 weeks. My whole body feels firmer, losing inches all over, with more energy, better sleep, and the ability to hike further than I ever have, so I definitely have more stamina. I feel like I’ve been able to reclaim my vigor and strength after hip replacement surgery that left me in pain and immobilized for years.”

-Meara M.

“BodyQuirks is the most amazing whole body healing and whole body health place there is in the Pacific Northwest and I’m so grateful for it each and every time I go.

—Svatopluk P.

“I now have less pain and inflammation. My muscle mass has increased considerably- my quads are an 1 ¼” are larger than they were, biceps are an 1” larger than they were 1 year ago. . . My balance is better than it used to be. My pain threshold from my scoliosis, bulging discs, and stenosis used to be a 4-6 every day when I was living in high altitude, now my pain is at a 1.”

-Maynard W.

I came to BodyQuirks because of chronic pain and joint instability. After 3 weeks of using Whole Body Vibration, I noticed a more defined waist, better muscle tone in my lower legs and thighs, and improved control of pelvic floor muscles.  I leave BodyQuirks feeling uplifted and inspired – as if Esther and Tara provide a special “mood elevating” tonic with their wellness approach and cutting-edge services.

-Suzanne B.

“After 2 months of coming every day, my knees now feel stronger than ever and I’m able to engage my quads again. My entire body is stronger and my back pain has disappeared. I come 3-4 times a week, to improve my mood, to feel better. I’m able to be active again and I’m feeling better than ever and have more energy.”

-Sean C.

“I noticed an improvement in the alignment of my hips and that the chronic tension there was gone after my first time using Whole Body Vibration machines at BodyQuirks.”

-Julie M.

“Excellent vibe, super chill, and friendly staff. Love the machines and personalized help. This is a great way to work out in a very low-stress atmosphere. I ended up buying a machine for home use I loved it so much.”

—Anya V.

“I felt changes within a week, with better posture, my leg and gluteal muscles noticeably stronger and my belly and waist slimmer. After a few months of coming, I now feel like my mood is more balanced, I’m less “on edge” in stressful situations and my balance is 50% improved according to my Wii!  My left hip pain resolved and my ankle swelling has decreased.”

-Lisa H.

In the first few weeks I’ve lost 4 lbs, my energy has increased, I have more stamina, and I sleep better and longer. My seasonal allergies have been terrible for years and I’m no longer experiencing seasonal allergies. My carpal tunnel pain is almost completely gone.”
