Byron is wonderful!! I am a professional dancer who comes to CT on occasion to visit my family. Every time I am home, I reach out to Byron to book an appointment. He always makes an effort to see me, even with a very busy schedule. His massages are truly among the top body work I have ever received- He is thorough and intuitive. I recommend him for every person- High level athletes, or someone who simply wants to improve their overall health and well being! Highly recommend.

Refreshing and Peaceful! Rosetta is one of the nicest and most calm people I've met. She's very good at her practice, as well. What a gem of a person to spend a couple of hours with. I received a massage and facial as a gift through Mind Body Works and I'm so very glad I did. I left feeling refreshed and restored - body mind and soul. I'll be back again soon.

Spending time with Rosetta and Byron is therapeutic in itself. They exemplify healthy living. Walk the walk and talk the talk! (I am so thrilled with the Gift of the Magi Cream! I've given it to friends who love it as much as I do. The scent is exotic, but not overpowering. Just beautiful.)

Felt right at home with Rosetta. Brought my 8 year old son for a massage session. He has been experiencing headaches on and off for a couple of months. He was very relaxed during his session. Rosetta’s experienced touch and wonderful energy really helped. She offered helpful advice and provided essential oils to aid in pain management. Looking forward to our next visit, staying on course to better health.

I could not speak more highly of Rosetta and Byron. With decades of experience, they are exceptionally good at what they do hands on. But just as important, they both bring broader interests and other trainings and practices to their work. They have a deep understanding of how our physical bodies represent just one aspect of how we live our lives. When they are working on you, they are tuned in to how you are doing emotionally and spiritually as well, and you will notice the effect after the session is over and you realize it is not only your body that feels differently. They continue to nurture and grow themselves in diverse ways and they offer themselves to others in ways that go beyond the massages they provide as their core line of work. Check them out. You won't regret it.

I've been a client of Rosetta and Byron Eddy for more than 30 years. Over the years, I have used many other massage therapist when traveling and have experience with well over 20 massage therapist over the years. There is a reason I have remained a loyal and grateful client, among the reason are how great Rosetta and Byron are to work with. I have dealt with several physical mishaps including a serious bicycle accident two years ago and Rosetta has been amazing dealing with any special needs over the years. I cannot say enough great things about Rosetta and Byron, which is why I have sent several friends and family to them and will continue to do so.

I discovered Rosetta and Byron Eddy when my massage therapist retired about a year ago and recommended them. They have somewhat different methods of massage and I liked both so much that I alternate each week between the two of them. I believe some of my anxieties and frustrations are put on remission for at least that hour and sometimes beyond. Both of them are a delight to work with, they return calls for appointments promptly and I consider them professional in every way, nurturing and thoughtful.

Having had at home massages for many years, when Rosetta (& Byron who has seen my husband) comes in the door, her warmth wipes away the days trials and tribulations. And when I get on the table and her amazing hands touch my aging and achy body, she manages to know the spots to go to and works her magic. I can leave her products on for the remainder of the day...no need to take that shower to get rid of an oily or greasy residue on my skin. And I feel safe with her knowledge of the body as well as with her years of experience and her expertise. Besides, I like her-as she is interesting, interested and kind.

Rosetta and Byron are both incredible massage therapists. I also love Rosetta's facials and handmade skin care line! It's in the most enchanted garden, and you can feel the love and care they provide in every moment. I always leave relaxed and happy. It's been very therapeutic for a variety of health problems, and I'm definitely going to come back regularly!

I was diagnosed with scleroderma in 2003. For years I searched for a good Massage therapist. After many appointments and much disappointment I was referred to Rosetta and Byron, mind-body works. From that moment on I knew I found the perfect massage therapist! Aside for Rosetta and Byron being incredible massage therapists their knowledge of the body and how it functions was a godsend to me. It’s been five years and not once was I ever disappointed. My husband now sees her husband Byron who has helped him meet his goals for marathon races. The products they use during their massage/facial’s are to die for. I can’t thank them enough for all they did for me in helping me overcome many issues from scleroderma. They deserve much praise for their works!

From the walk down through Rosetta's amazing gardens, to the healing hands of Byron. These two will not only heal your body but parts of your soul. Go in for a massage or facial, but don't stop there, Rosetta's makes and sells her own skin care products for you to purchase. I could not recommend a better place for all your massage therapy and skincare needs!

I've received bodywork from Rosetta for 25 years. As a licensed massage therapist (LMT) I can discern the good-enough from the best-there-is and Rosetta is the best. She can determine what my body needs and lovingly applies it. I always sleep better after a session. She is truly gifted.

5 star ratingI have been blessed to know Rosetta as a massage therapist as well as a dear friend for over thirty years. My blood pressure goes down as soon as I turn into her driveway. It is a gift to have a massage and facial and I swear I look younger and more relaxed every time I leave. I can close my eyes and see myself in her presence, lying on the table unwinding as her healing hands make me feel instantly better. Slowly the cares of the world disappear, my breathing slows, and I am at peace.
Mind and Body Works-an apt name for a place I view as a sanctuary.

I have been getting massages from both Rosetta and Byron of Mind-Body Works for over 25 years. I find their touch, professionalism, care and skill unmatched! When there have been problems, they both have knowledge in how to address the area specifically and thereby ease the discomfort immediately. As a woman in the height of the MeToo Movement, it's breathtaking to work with a man and have no concern of any personal violations. Byron's skill, talent, consideration and ultimate professionalism is profound. The same goes for Rosetta, her touch is completely knowledgeable and deeply comforting. Time and again I have benefited from her adept hands which are backed by her intense skill and open heart. I highly recommend Mind Body Works and encourage anyone considering a massage to make an appointment. You will not be disappointed and most assuredly you will want to return.
Thank you Mind-Body Works for your years of commitment and devotion to true and profoundly meaningful touch, I am better because of your work!

Byron has an incredibly vast skillset and can help just about every type body.

For anyone looking for a massage or any sort of muscular healing, look no further. Mind Body Works is an incredibly down to earth company with unbelievable knowledge and experience from both masseuses. Highly recommend to customers of all ages.

Spending time with Rosetta and Byron is therapeutic in itself. They exemplify healthy living. They walk the walk and talk the talk! The infrared sauna is the most amazing treatment for ALL that aid you - renewing! (I am so thrilled with the Gift of the Magi Cream! I've given it to friends who love it as much as I do. The scent is exotic, but not overpowering. Just beautiful.)

I was welcomed by Byron. I was nervous. Well I did not need to be! I realized he gave me the best massage ever back in 1991. I was so relieved to have found such a talented person again! I have degenerative disease of the lumbar spine, scoliosis and Lumbar stenosis . I have had PT, steroid injections , meds ( not opioids). My sweet husband went and bought a gift certificate for me! He calls me Boo Boo , my real name is Suzi .
Well Byron did not touch my lower back however with upper back massage and cervical work along with hip and lower extremity work I felt better for days . He has a gift .I cannot wait to book again. He kept me playing tennis after one massage . No pills or Advil. Thank you , Sue Cizek

So much more than just a massage! Rosetta is an amazing holistic massage therapist! She asks questions and LISTENS to your responses and knows exactly what to do for each part of your body. Her energy is warm and caring and the massage is relaxing and healing! I recommend that you indulge yourself and get the facial massage added on! Ahhh.....a massage given by Rosetta is a balm for the body, mind, and spirit....💆🏼‍♀️

Rosetta and Byron are amazing massage therapists. They give you a warm welcome and make you feel so well taken care for since the very first moment you meet them.
They ask you questions in order to help you feel better and they always succeed in doing that: I feel restored and renewed in the body and in the mind after every appointment.
I am so glad I found them !

What an absolute privilege, a gift, and treat for my body. My massage with Rosetta Pardon Eddy was not only physically therapeutic but also profoundly spiritual. My cares of the world fell from my shoulders and love was infused back into my body by her skilled and purposeful hands.

She intuitively found areas that troubled me and poured into them. I felt completely blissful by the end and was moved to tears by the overwhelming sense of peace and serenity I was experiencing.

In addition to the best massage I have ever had, I found the environment to be beautiful and serene. Live plants, unique artwork, and gently flowing water all came together to create the feeling of an oasis from the world.

In addition to recommending that you schedule your massage, I implore you to do so. Self-care is a must and this level of true service is so incredibly rare. In your life you deserve to experience such a feeling of wellness and bliss.

I highly recommend their services! They nurtured my body while I was performing in the area, and are all around wonderful people. I'm very picky as I have some chronic conditions. As soon as I was done my first session I knew I wouldn't trust anywhere else!

Rosetta was very welcoming; greeting me with a warm smile and a cup of tea upon arriving for my treatment. I’ve never experienced a more relaxing massage than I did with her. She is one of a kind!

Had a couples massage by Byron and Rosetta. I was skeptical that it was in a home, but the ambiance of the massage room is very calming. Rosetta gave us homemade tea made with herbs from their garden. The massages were full body and so soothing. They also were very attentive to the areas we had problems with and gave suggestions after the massage to continue healing those areas. Highly recommend!

I e had a few reviews with Byron for prenatal massage and will be booking every few weeks until my due and then hopefully after. The environment is very calming and peaceful. I prefer that to a chain or big place. The massage itself has been incredibly beneficial during my pregnancy. I’ve had a very rough time and I look forward to my massage. I wish I could go every week! I haven’t tried anywhere else in Sarasota and I don’t plan to. At some point I’ll be scheduling facials for my older daughter and myself.

Byron is an outstanding therapeutic massage therapist. His knowledge of anatomy, his skills, and his very unique technique result in a superb therapeutic massage.

With Byron's massage, the lovely soft music that plays in the background, and Rosetta's gentle herbal tea, your mind and body will experience a very special treat at this studio.
