Alanna was truly amazing and is very talented. I am beyond pleased with my services. I will return many times in the future.
Absolutely wonderful!!! See you next year.
Jeri was amazing.
Judy was wonderful, kind and professional. Love her.
Happy feet. Thank you!
I really enjoyed the treatments. I received the Madame Butterfly package and basic foot spa. I feel so relaxed, and it was a great way to enjoy my vacation.
"I am delighted to submit my testimonial in praise of the miracle stretching exercises
I've had leg cramps since I was in grammar school over half a century ago. With age, the cramps have intensified in frequency and pain
Approximately 20 years ago I developed sciatica, again quite painful, sufficient enough to wake me up at night along with my leg cramps. I should also add that, in the past, many times a day, I would have to stop whatever I was doing to deal with the problem, which included pulling a car over to the shoulder of the road.
Dawn Krupa suggested stretching as an effective way to eliminate both problems. I was skeptical, but desperate
In one stretching treatment, which lasted less than two hours, I have had relief! A two hour session relieved 65 years of continuous pain! Dawn also provided training to do some of the stretching exercises on my own
Since Dawn's stretching treatment, I've enjoyed an uninterrupted night's rest. I should add, in the past, many times a day I would have to stop to handle leg cramps, again, including pulling a car over to the shoulder of the road to handle the problem."

"I'm writing these two days after I came in and Dawn worked on stretching with me. Since then I have been walking without my two canes and have been sleeping through the night without waking up with muscle spasms. I have also have been able to swim without going into spasms, which prior to Dawn's treatment, I haven't been able to do at all!
I feel like I have been given a new lease on life. My head is clear of pain and so I feel like I just woke up to my life again. In the last two days I've painted 4 paintings, which I've wanted to do for years and haven't been able to even force myself to do. My creativity (I'm an artist) has bloomed again. I see beauty in the world again. My whole life has been changed, re‒awakened and forever altered. My depression has been lifted off my shoulders and I feel light and unburdened.
This really has been a miraculous experience. I wanted to go back to Lourdes, but I really just needed to come here. Thank you is not enough or sufficient. Bless you! I pray others can come here and experience what I have experienced here. God bless you!!"

"I have had the pleasure of using the spa services over the last several years. They (The Spa has) have consistently delivered quality, professional treatments in a warm inviting atmosphere
The later half of 2009 I was plagued with an almost constant stiff and sore neck which I sought medical advice and went through four months of physical therapy with only limited results
On a visit to Cannon Beach I set up an appointment with Dawn and explained the "pain in the neck" situation and my frustration with the lack of success in the medical arena. She introduced me to injury rehabilitation stretching and after just a few sessions, I achieved more relief than from a traditional physical therapy routine. Wow! What a difference. You might want to consider this as a possible option if you have a need."
"I recently received two "Active Isolated Stretching" treatments while visiting the Cannon Beach Spa. I have been diagnosed with a disorder called "Hereditary Spastic Paraparesis", a progressive disorder affecting muscles, joints, and dealing with spasticity in the lower half of my body
Initially, I didn't know what to expect, but thought I would give it a try‒perhaps some massage, a little stretching. It involved active participation from both the therapist and the client involved in the treatment. This is such a unique approach to stretching, and I responded so well to the session that I scheduled another one. Since I don't live near a therapist who does this type of treatment, I purchased the book that shows the various stretches and have found it extremely helpful. In the past I have tried traditional massage, acupuncture, as well as muscle relaxers of various types. It is my hope to eventually stop the medications with doctor approval, but in the meantime I have found I don't need them as much. I am extremely grateful to the therapist, and happily feel so much better!"
"I went to the Cannon Beach Spa on a whim to see if I could get a massage. I had recently moved to the area and had done a lot of lifting which caused my lower back to be in a lot of pain. Dawn did a combination of injury rehabilitation massage on me, as well as deep tissue work on my upper back
After two days, it was 90% gone. I have had a lot of massages before, but the technique she used, the stretching, and breathing techniques she used, I had never before experienced. I am thankful I happened to have her as my masseuse!"
"Due to a congenital back deformity of my L4 and L5 vertebrae, I have endured chronic muscle injuries and inflammation for over twenty‒five years. I was told by a chiropractor I had very tight fascia, but I had no idea what to do about it. A massage therapist once told me "you have the tightest piriformis muscle I've ever worked on", but there were no suggestions as to what I could do or any follow‒up. Anytime I tried to increase my activity or fitness level, I would injure myself
I've had chiropractic treatments for twenty‒four years that have helped, but have offered no resolution. I exercise and I've had many messages, but still the pain persists
In the summer of 2007 at the Cannon Beach Spa, I had my first AIS (Active Isolated Stretching) treatment. When I left the Spa, I said to my husband through tears of joy, "This is the first day of the rest of my life". Dawn got more movement out of my body in ninety minutes than I've had in twenty‒five years!"

"My problems started in 1974 when the birth of my son broke my pelvis. In 1996, my abusive husband physically caused injury to my spine by bending my back in half backwards over a counter. 1998 was a year of hard labor on a farm and finally in 2002, I was in a car accident. The result of all this was that I'm in such pain I could barely walk (I had to use two canes), I could barely take care of myself. I was afraid that I was heading for life in a wheelchair!
I've been diagnosed with herniated discs, rheumatoid arthritis and pelvic pain. I've tried chiropractic, back and wrist surgeries, Mayo Clinic, The Spine Center and physical therapy. I scheduled an appointment with Dawn this past summer for a massage and she suggested doing some rehabilitation stretching with me although she wasn't sure I could actively do very much. To our surprise, we worked together for almost 1 1/2 hours stretching the low back, hips, feet and big toe
My bad toe still hurts a little from the RA, but my back and leg muscles haven't felt this good since the '80's when I used to jog. Thank you so much, Dawn, for helping me with my pain. My back has still not started to hurt like it did before! I think you're a miracle worker! Thanks also for sending me the DVD. I will try to give it to someone out here to help me continue with this method."
"While on vacation in Cannon Beach, I slept wrong and had a terrible kink in my shoulder. It was very painful to turn my head. In the past I've tried using a handheld massager when this same thing has happened. After a couple of hours, it only feels slightly better
I decided to schedule a massage at the Cannon Beach Spa and my therapist did a combination of deep tissue massage and stretching that was great. I am amazed at how much my neck and shoulders have loosened up! I can turn my neck with very little pain now."
"Just wanted you to know that you were right...after a couple days, the pain I experienced after my session with you on Aug 14th left me. I've continued the stretching you taught me as well as others I've found in Aaron Mattes's book. I'm also pleased to have found a massage therapist a few miles from my home...Zenergy Bodywork and Massage, specializing in Mattes' Active Isolated Stretching. Thanks for introducing me to this technique."

"This is the day after treatment, sore, but not in a bad way. I have more movement and flexibility and ease of movement. I stretched again this morning before my walk and I am feeling much better. Thanks Cannon Beach Spa and Dawn."
"My story is that I fell on my tailbone twice as a kid and then I subjected my body to 42 years of construction work. My symptoms include lack of motion in my left hip, pain in my left knee and fusing of L‒2 through L‒3. This has affected my walking, bending and general range of motion. I've tried physical therapy but the problems are getting worse.
I'm writing this the day after my treatment at the Cannon Beach Spa. I'm sore, but not in a bad way. I have more movement, flexibility and ease of movement. I stretched again this morning before my walk and I am feeling much better."

"I scheduled a massage because I had a very stiff neck from picking up a surfboard. I had a similar stiff neck 3 weeks ago and it went away after four to five days. I didn't want to wait that long since I am on vacation and thanks to my stretching treatment I feel a lot better now. Thank you very much for your help. I can now enjoy my vacation!"

"I have Plantar Facsiitis. It started from running and walking on my feet. I've had it off and on for over twenty years and two years ago it got really bad. I went to the doctor and was told they couldn't do anything. I have had cortisone shots, been to a podiatrist, got special inserts and spent seven months icing my feet three times a day. After two stretching sessions with Dawn my feet feel about 75% percent better! I may do a couple more sessions in the future as a "tune up" Also I just hiked Saddle Mountain and did it in three hours round trip with no after affects."
"I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I'm not sure how it started but I've had it for about 20 years. I've tried cortisone shots and sleeping with splints. After stretching with Dawn I feel great! Did not sleep with a brace for the first time in years and had no numbness!"
