What are our clients saying?

Whenever I go to The Dharma Center, I walk away with a feeling of peace and comfort. The surroundings, the people, the professionalism are a constant reminder of quality service that’s hard to find these days. You won’t be disappointed.

Donna loosened up a lot of my problem areas around my neck and back that were causing me significant pain and tension headaches. My muscles felt very relaxed and I haven’t had as much pain since! She was awesome!!

I have used a numbers of services at the Dharma Center from facials to hot stone massage and mineral salt scrubs. I always leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and anxiously looking forward to my next visit. The atmosphere is soothing, the receptionist is always pleasant and helpful, and the therapists are extremely professional. If you haven’t given The Dharma Center a visit, you are missing a little corner of heaven right here in Cortland!

Debby was wonderful-my massage was just what I needed. Thanks so much! The Dharma Center is such a beautiful,relaxing, “put you in the mood” place. I always enjoy coming.
