Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • It was a great experience, right from the start. It was easy to set up the appointment online - that would fit my schedule. I was able to add the appointment to my calendar with ease, and received an appointment reminder - which I found helpful. I was given an option to pay in advance, which leaves one less thing to do later. The office was easy to find and Michael made my first visit very warm and inviting. He listened to what I had to say, and offered the table to be warmed and warm rice packs during my massage. I will say it was one of the best massages I have had. I will definitely be returning...soon.

    Michael provided a relaxing atmosphere with a massage that was tailored to my needs. He made sure to ask for feedback throughout the session and spoke with me beforehand about what I wanted to focus on for the day. Will definitely be back!

  • Michael was very professional and skilled. I was going to another massage therapist for back pain but she fell off the grid since the pandemic began. Michael used a lot of the same techniques as my last therapist. Glad I found him.

    Michael has been an amazing practitioner for all the years I've seen him. So glad to be back to massage after months and months of aches and pains I've been treating with a tennis ball during the pandemic.

  • Relaxing and wonderful massage!

    Michael was incredibly considerate and gave me a thorough and thoughtful explanation of the whole process. He was accommodating with regards to a muscle injury I was recovering from and was perfect in adjusting pressure. I plan to come back several times and have already recommended him to friends and colleagues.

  • Michael is a fantastic massage therapist able to bring deep rest, release, and relaxation to the effects of generalized stress, muscular pain and tightness, and other imbalances that can happen to the body. -Liz

    I have chronic back pain and am always feeling tight and sore. I stood up after my massage and for the first time in ages felt no pain. I'm booking recurring appointments!

  • Michael is really skilled, and made me feel instantly comfortable. I highly recommend him for regular massage and sports massage!

    Run do not walk to an appt with this guy! In one session some major spots that were at level 8 pain on scale from 1-10 are down to 0-3. I hesitate to recommend as I want him to be available for me and my family and friends when we book. Great location and space.

I think Michael Milner is extraordinary in his ability to combine therapeutic treatment with relaxation massage. Other practitioners I've had, at other places, are either too mild, or too rigorous. Michael is professional, which, to me, means not chatty. During the massage I'm able to enter another zone of complete relaxation and complete awareness of my body.

Michael is always good. He always asks if there are specific areas that need attention, and when I tell him, he works on those areas. He is very flexible in terms of his time as well. he is delightful. I have been seeing him for several years, and my son and his wife see him as well.I recommend him highly
