My time spent with Maril was much needed and well worth it. You know as soon as she begins her work that you are in completely capable hands. Maril creates a very comfortable atmosphere and is easy to trust, with great communication about what she needs from you and visa versa. I’ve never left her shop without knowing the work she’s done on me is invaluable. Jed, April 2012
Maril is intense, sensitive, funny, calming, super caring, always inquiring, very aware and tuned in and all around a beautiful person. Her massages are extremely healing and she does wonderful knowing your body from massage to massage. She is firm, but with a gentle spirit. She pushes you to go beyond where your mind might think your body’s limits are, asking for trust from me to her. This is really good stuff! I also want to comment on the fact that she’s great with all ages. I gave my family a body treat day and all 4 of us (ages 9, 12, 41 & 45) had massages that were individually appropriate for all of us. She makes kids feel comfortable and mine wish they could go much more often! Maril is such a huge advocate of caring for your body long term as a way of life. I applaud her and her great business that is such a compliment to our community! Jennifer, April 2012
Maril is a lifesaver!!! I had back problems constantly for about 3 years and nothing could get rid of it. Then one day I went to see Maril and after that i have never had my back pain return. She is very flexible with her scheduling and really listens to what your problem areas are and she always knows how to fix them. She uses hot towels, bamboo sticks, and many other things. She always has soothing music and makes you feel as relaxed as possible. When I left i felt like a completely different person and for once in my life I did not have ANY pains return in my back. I feel so lucky to have Maril and she has definitely changed my life!! No one can give a better massage and no one is as kind and caring as her in this business! Allison, April 2012
With Strong Hands and a Big Heart, Maril is a fantastic massage therapist! My massage was equal parts soothing and energizing, with music that I could choose and a great atmosphere. Yet I am most impressed with Maril’s attitude towards her clients. I’ve gotten a lot of massages from a lot of people, yet Maril stands out with her concern and care, checking in with you a lot during the massage, and noticing when something is a little too tough- she even called a few days later to see how I was doing! Now that’s caring for your clients! Suzi, April 2012
I moved to Missoula about 3 years ago looking for a new massage therapist since I still struggle with a lot of neck and back pain from previous car accidents. I found Maril, and she is absolutely the BEST in town!! She is personable, friendly and is very talented in massage. She uses hot towels, great music and her massage studio is very relaxing. I went to her while I was pregnant, and she was excellent; and again after the baby came, and she worked out my “cemented” tight muscles in my back and neck. We are so lucky to have such a skilled massage therapist in Missoula. I highly recommend her to all of my friends! Kelli, April 2012
I was recommended by a friend and am so glad I found out about this place. I work construction and lots of hours so its a pretty common thing to be sore for days. But Maril is absolutely a professional at what she does. And even better she really cares about the people and the work. I tell everyone about Satori!!!

I have been going to Maril even before Satori Massage, because she is simply the best!!! She really listens to where you’re having pain and works on exactly that area (s). Not only does she do the most incredible massages, she is a great listener and soul soother. She has the best essential oils from Young Living and they really have a positive effect on your body and mind. The hot towels around the neck feel amazing, and I love when she works on my upper back, shoulders and neck. I tell a lot of people about her and her massages because I know how good they are and that I really feel like a new and refreshed person afterwards. She knows her stuff and she knows how to help release tension in places you never knew you had tension. She can really read a person by how they stand, how they act, and how to make them feel much better. She has the cutest little room with fun music, cute sheets, a heated massage table, and a very relaxing environment. You will definitely leave feeling good as new. I always look forward to my appointments with her…which isn’t nearly enough because I live in a different country now!!! I have been to other therapists and I am always a bit disappointed at the end because I know that it wasn’t as good as Maril’s!! She really is a life saver!!!
Satori Massage is the BEST massage in town!! If you are in a lot of pain and really need a good, relaxing and balancing massage, then don’t waste any time and make an appointment with Maril!! No doubts you won’t forget it after…when you’re feeling like a million bucks!! GO MARIL and thanks again for the GREAT massage last month! ~ Krystina, Jan 2012
If you’re looking for the best massage EVER, I highly recommend Maril at Satori Massage. She’s not only a skilled professional, but one who clearly loves what she does. Combine this with a gorgeous studio, a super comfortable massage table, pure essential oils, heated towels and great music (you can even bring your own), and you have all the ingredients for transporting your body, mind and spirit to a place of rest and relaxation ~ Jennifer, Jan 2012

Maril is hands down one of the best massage therapists in the Missoula area and I am highly satisfied with the quality of work she does.
Maril made sure to ask me about my body’s needs and target them, repeatedly checked in with me during the massage, and helped identify how to improve a chronic condition. The atmosphere was very peaceful and has a way of immediately relaxing you too. I also found the massage to be really Intense! But in the best way possible, and I have every intention of going back again.
Bottom Line: totally satisfied with the results. ~ Suzi, Jan 2012
I got the best one-hour deep tissue massage of my life from Maril. The space she has set up is absolutely lovely and soothing; just stepping in I felt immediately relaxed. She checked in with me when approaching spots of tension, and made sure that I was breathing well and letting my muscles soften so that she could target specific areas on my legs, back, neck, and jaw. Loosened me up BIG TIME after some snowboard-related whiplash and muscle tensions and inspired me to treat my body a bit more carefully. She is a healer and a nurturer and you will immediately feel the positive effects of her warm humanity and trained touch. Maril is both a fantastic masseuse and a fantastic human- your body will feel good after she works with you and your heart will feel good supporting her business.~ Jared W, Jan 2012
I just moved in down the hall from Satori Massage a few months back, and I kept meaning to go give it a try, but you know, life is busy…so lo and behold like THREE months later I finally make it over to schedule an appointment. It’s run by a very nice lady named Maril, and she made room on her schedule to set me up a day later.
She is very nice & easy to get along with…and the bodywork was awesome! I really like a good massage, and I’m quite picky about who I let work on me. Maril was very good! She communicated about what she was doing throughout the entire 1.5 hour massage, let me know when she was going to dig into something, and she obviously was very experienced with hands, It was definitely one of the better massages I’ve gotten.
Also she has this awesome warm towel machine, and throughout the process she will pull a towel out and lay it on your back or face or chest and it FEELS SO GOOD!!!! It’s beyond worth paying her a visit for this alone, who needs stones, when you can get warm towels, they are great!
The last thing I really appreciated is that she listened to me tell her which parts of my body I wanted worked on, and thats what she did! This is huge for me, because I know where I keep my stress, and I don’t want to pay someone to work on parts of me that don’t need it! So, all in all, Maril runs a great little place, and I was extremely pleased with the entire experience. ~ Jared S, Dec 2011
Maril is my personal Jesus, life changing massage by an amazing woman. I had not been able to eat without pain for almost two years and after my first visit I was able to eat pain free again. I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done. ~Michelle, Nov 2011
Maril is WONDERFUL!!! You can walk in running like a broken-down jalopy and come out feeling like a sports car… Not only is she a wonderful massage therapist- she is an amazing person. Her kindness, her humor and her compassion makes the experience even more healing and nourishing to the body and soul. The woman is seriously gifted and talented-I’ve been her client for 4 years and I know I will be her client for 40 more (or whenever she gets sick of fixing me…) Go see Maril!~ experience even more healing and nourishing to the body and soul.

Had the best massage of my life! I’ve been to five therapists in the last four years and nothing compares to the results that I experienced, Maril, You Rock! I’ve dealt with daily pain from a car accident for over 3 years and seen many different massage therapists. This was hands down the most effective massage I have ever had and would highly recommend to anyone! ~ Noelle, Oct & Dec 2011
A therapist who listens to needs and finds out the issues. If it’s just relaxation you need, she has the environment and the ambiance. If you need healing, she has the recommendation. Take it from the most skeptical person I know. I never second guessed after my first appointment.~ Jae, July 2011
