Testimonials


Carol has no equal.  I was in search of a good deep tissue massage because of my exercise regimen, TMJ and the accumulation of daily stress until Carol was recommended to me in 2007.  She has the strongest hands and the deepest massage I have ever experienced in my life.  But, when I was recovering from surgery Carol was able to adapt her technique to the needs of my body at the time.  Although I wanted a deep tissue she knew my body needed a gentler touch from the stress of surgery.  She not only brings a healing touch, but from her years of practice and training she has an innate knowledge and natural instinct in her work.  Her work space is relaxing and extremely comforting.  And, she has impeccable work ethics.  I recommend Carol to anyone who is still seeking the perfect massage for their body.

Carol has been providing massages for my husband and myself for the last 3 years. We have been to many massage therapists in the Boulder area and Carol is by far the best. She knows our problem areas and remembers what needs to be worked on every time we go. She is gentle where needed and deep where that is needed. She is professional, flexible with her time and we would never consider going to anyone else.

I have had the privilege of being able to have Carol give deep tissue massages  for over 5 years now.  I am fortunate enough to be able to see Carol weekly now and it is because of her that I am able to continue to do what I love which is teach fitness classes and be an active outdoor participant in all that Colorado has to offer!!!!  Carol goes far beyond just being the best massage therapist I have ever come across (and believe me I have tried others), she really does care about you and your well being.  My three children, my mother, my boss and many more people I care about see Carol for their massage needs and she has always been willing to drop everything she is doing to help us all out. She checks up on us when “needed” and always takes the extra time to make sure we are taken care of.  She is also an amazing listener and has given me advice that has reduced my stress level and anxiety to zero simply because she does care!  I can’t count the number of people I have referred to Carol but I certainly never hesitate and I wish everyone had the opportunity to experience her very professional, experienced, strong (yet can be gentle) touch!  I am so very blessed to have found her!

I have been going to Carol Thornton for almost two years.  I find Carol to be passionate about her work, highly knowledgeable of the body, and sensitive to what I need.  She is incredibly strong and can give me a very deep tissue massage when my shoulders and neck are tight or lighten up when I want to relax.   Each massage is unique to the needs of my body and mind.  I especially like the extras such as the hot pack on my back and the hot towels on my hands, feet and chest at the end of the session!

I have been seeing Carol Thornton with Padme Massage for over 7 years.  She is the best massage therapist that I have found and before meeting her I tried my fair share of different CMTs!  She is thorough and knows the body well to help you manage stress, sports injuries, and overall better health for yourself.  Your time is well spent in the hands of Carol Thornton, I always leave feeling better than when I arrived.

When I am unable to get a massage, Padme’s eucalyptus bath salts are a great alternative.  Given the healing properties of the high grade Himalayan salts and organic essential oils, I feel the difference compared to other alternatives.  I always feel better after my bath, with my hip pain and stress reduced for the day!  Also, Padme’s lip balms are top notch: in Colorado’s dry climate and being very active outdoors, this lip balm is the only one that I use
